oh pineknot..LOL better stick to those maple leaf undies on your avatar
I have pretty much given up on buying anything south that requires shipping and only purchase what can be "physically" picked up when visiting our friends to the south.
It wouldn't be so bad if everyone lived in a bubble and didn't know the great prices our southern neighbors enjoy along with a pile of free shipping.For years it was blamed on the exchange rate... so now what?
I do want to point out however... that this is not limited to the states... Here in good old Canada i had to start using my employers purolator account for work purchases that required shipping "inside Canada" due to Canadian vendors "ballooning" shipping costs to help support their companies bottom line.,,, as the "shipping and handling" words are very loosey goosey to manipulate $$$ numbers with.
Maybe someday we will do business as one big family..... sadly ..i don't think me or my KLR will live long enough to see it...
