I recently got turned away for having cameras in my trunk and saying I wasn't going down to work. Even though I was going down for fun with a friend, still detained for a couple hours and grilled about working for US clients. Finger printed, mug shot, and sent home.

Be prepared to be grilled if you're bringing gear across.

Canada today announced new rules for the recreational use of a UAV.

The federal government is also advising people to call 911 if they see someone illegally flying a UAV. Really. Failing that, you are asked to complete a Drone Incident Report form.

Dan is a great shooter and even better person. Although, from what I remember his golf game could use some work!

Working at the Windsor Star over the summer of 2010 was one of the most influential times in my career. The fantastic people that work and have worked in that news room is second to none.
