If my memory is correct when driving from Oregon into California there was a checkpoint on the highay and you were not allowed to bring any fruit in. Was years ago.

Yes, I remember those checkpoints also. I left California back in the early '90s but I do remember them.

I remember that when I was a kid. However, last time I drove through the border about 8-9 years ago, there was no checkpoint.

Garbage can also be a problem. Entering Puerto Rico or the U S Virgins requires that you enter through a certified garbage disposing marina or you might have to pay for your garbage to be transfered to a certified disposal. In many ports in the Caribbean and Bermuda you will be asked if you are carrying and fresh fruit or vegitables. Don't lie!

does it matter in any country if the meat and veggies in question are kept on the boat at anchor or if they are brought on land/into marina. or if once in that counties waters are those items deemed illegal/unapproved??
PS I drove from oregon to cali around christmas of 2010 and went through a fruit checkpoint.

In Asia they don't seem to care. But geez in Australia they would take off tinned meats that were from Australia.

In some countries we have been told that we could not remove food from the boat, in others once you area admitted to the country it does not matter. You just go with the flow and find out about the strict ones like Oz so you don't show up with a bunch of stuff that you just spent a fortune on in New Caledonia.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Yes.

Each year when State of Origin rolls around us cockroaches wish the gates were still there.

Aeventyr .... not just tinned and fresh stuff either. I've had pills, pills for which I had the prescription for , pills which were dispensed in Sydney taken off me at Sydney Airport. I appreciate that we need to keep out nasties like foot and mouth but ffs, they do tend to go overboard.
