Yeah, I'm in Ottawa.
Next time you buy US stuff, get them to ship it to Ogdensburg, NY. The UPS store will hold it for $5/package each week. It's only a 35 minute ride.
Better yet, if you stay out of the country for 48 hours you can bring back $400 worth of stuff tax free. I've got a lot of stuff that way. Drive down Friday, pick it up, drive on to Jay Peak or Placid or wherever, board two days, spend the night and drive back. The tax saving pays for one of the lift tickets. If I'm doing it for friends, they either spring for some of my gas or I just bank the karma.
