My family and I were approved today as "trusted travelers" so we will get NEXUS passes that will allow us in the super-fast no waiting lines at the border when we drive to Vancouver. Hurray! We still need to go to the Vancouver Airport (or Toronto next time we are there) to get the iris scanning done in order to use the NEXUS pass at Canadian airports. It will save us so much time when we travel to/from Toronto too! And it was only $50 for 5 years. Both Stephen and I had to pay the fee but it is free for kids aged 18 and under.
I almost want to drive up to Canada this weekend just to use it! And maybe we could consider day trips (well, still 3 hours driving each way but no wait at border will make it doable).
