    What type of link are you looking for?


    HOS? You have to run under the U.S ones as you are out of Texas.

    Border?
    Safety and Compliance?
    Weather?

    Routing around hellcat's house?

    However, she is a great chef.

    Otherwise check the"NEWBIE'S Forum" I've posted a few links there.
    You can't fix stupid

    Welcome to the "better half" of North America, McGee! I do hope you get either permitted or running authority as it is a very good thing to expand our trade and our cultural experiences! I spent many enjoyable days over your side in the 15 years I crossbordered before retiring, but only 4 times to Texas! In regards information you requested, I can add a little that maybe of interest/help. If you have a dog or pet aboard make sure that the animal's vaccination shots are upto date plus carry the papers to prove it!
    Another "rumour" type thing was that it is cheapest to register a truck in Saskatchewan but that the reciprocal rights with American States were more complete and better with Alberta registrations (right or wrong I don't know!).
    Like you suspected, there are many individual regulations for each PROVINCE (not providence!) Being from Ont. but originally from Sask/Alta. there is one that jumps to mind is that spread axels were not allowed in Alta. You had to be able to slide them into closed position! Another which Pipeman will no doubt mention is that the marker board for highlighting the OD status is different in Canada! There needs to be a Geneva Convention on rules and signs that can cost you your profit or even business! I got fined for using American Hazmat placards that are more correct, specifing flammable-empty-not washed out in Ont. That was a money grab! Only flammable were allowed!
    You will probably find out that while there are accent differences throughout Canada just like there are in the US, there are numerous word usage differences, too! We say pop not soda, and eh instead of huh or hah! This list would fill a small book so just think of it like your going to Northern Wisconsin/Minnesota and you will be close but not there! So enjoy it cousin when you get here. Summer is just as warm at times here but it cools off at night unless you are near a Lower Great Lake!
    Reloads home are legal under the NAFTA treaty but look sharp at the rates! There is even a provision for one interstating load to get you closer to a load to transborder home but check that out first see if it is implemented or suspended! Good Luck.
    P.S. Later,
    I forgot to mention that we are Metricated up here. Think of the speed limits as a percentage of the clock hour! It becomes second nature to convert them mentally having grown up in the Imperial/US measure and now living in this imposed silly meters! That cost us people all lot of money that has never really paid off. Watch the metric weights, too! I won't get into the other area, of languages! You have enough Spanish elements in the South to understand our problems with French and the different dialects involved! Any discussions of this nature becomes political very quickly! Most everywhere you go you can find English spoken except certain parts of N. Ont through to New Brunswick. Also like Bookworm said change your money over as all business people suddenly forget how to do the math on exchange rates! And if you over tip in a restaurant, it annoys your fellow drivers from Canada! We have subtle discrimination up here so it pays to be observant!
