I drove by myself. Slept in my truck. Six hours day one, rest of the drive day two. If you have two or three people just drive through the night. Btw. Don’t underestimate the border crossing, they are very thorough. If you have a DUI in the past 10 years, don’t bother, you can’t enter Canada. They will run background checks on every one. You will need to register your guns on the US side so you can get them back into the US, and then submit a form to register them on the Canadian side as well. They will ask about every thing. You are allowed 200 rds of ammo without paying anything, but they want you to have documentation if you are bringing them back into the US.
