im going to sound like a stupid american, but i just looked on a map and saw how close montreal is to where im at and i just realized i could work this into my travel plans! ill just go striaght north up through upstate ny instead of northeast. but i need some info, like whats the process of going from us to canada- im takin a bike, but i may like take a train or bus to get there. i dont really know im not plannin shit lol but any info i could get would be great. i wanted to see canada so bad for so long its sounds like such a beatufil place from the people to the landscape (and i love the cold, so..) man that would work out great! i could do that no prob. so anything you could tell me about the process of going from NYC (actually long island but for all intensive purposes its the same) to montreal. thanks! id love to meet you all.

Katie has been found and is safe and sound! Though, work seemed to be the culprit!

Hey Evan,

As an American citizen you can just show up at a border crossing and cross. (If you aren't travelling on a United States passport, you may have additional issues - let me know otherwise).

To cross the border you will need to have proof of U.S. citizenship and picture ID. This can either be a passport or a combination of birth certificate and drivers license / military ID card.

You can get info from the U.S. government here: Entry requirements to countries starting with "C".

The process will be the same whether you ride your bike or take a bus or a train. If you decide to take a bus or train, there are lots of options from NYC. Check Amtrak or Greyhound.

Hi,

I don't really want to read over 27 forum pages. What's the gist of this thing in a nutshell ? I'm in Toronto and have my own transport so I can literally leave in the morning, attend and go back home to sleep in my own bed at night.

Hey Q!

The gist of this is - a North American TP meet-up in Montreal over the weekend of Sept. 24-25. This thread was started to just see who would be intersted, etc. A second (new) thread will be started this week to give people a chance to state their travel dates, hotels, and other pertinent info so that solid plans can be made for getting together. A PM will also be sent out to everyone who has posted here about the plans thread.

Hope you will be able to make it!!! So far 17 (now 18 with you) have expressed interest. We know some will not be able to attend, but Sam and Pete have no choice but to be there. The first round of drinks will be on me and Beerman. What brand of bottled water is your favorite?? KIDDING!!!!! (Bottled water is more expensive than booze these days!)

Anyway, hope you will be able to join those of us who are adventurous enough to make the trek!! Let me know if you need more info, or wait by your message center for the PM. ;)

Well, I'm pretty flexible since I can get myself to Montreal pretty easily. I doubt school will be an issue this early in the season. I will need a place to stay though. Probably if there's a group going to one hotel, I'll just follow the crowd.

Someone was asking about nightlife?:

All you guys will be happy to know that Montreal is famous for its strip clubs. Hot blondes imported from Eastern Europe, Baby !!!! ;) ;) ;) ;)

Okay, I have just done a search for the legal drinking age in Montreal and got two different answers!! What is the correct one - 18 or 21???? I need to know!

I am asking because we may have younger people attending the gathering. One example is SeeTheSky (sorry Evan) who is 18. Will he be able to enter a bar/pub?

If the legal drinking age IS 21 - will he be able to enter a bar/pub with the group, even though there is no "real" parent or gaurdian, as long as we make sure he (sorry again, Evan) does not drink publically?

If not, can he enter a bar/pub (with us) that serves food? Does the bar have to have more than 50% of it's sales from food (rather than from liquor) for him to be allowed in with us?

Sorry for all the questions, but it's something I just realized could be a problem for anyone under the age of 21 (and Evan is 18). I'd hate to have anyone unable to join in on something because everyone else is of legal age.
