I've had to go through that grief, and the rest of their 'we know you're a criminal' interrogation mentality. You're right though, look ahead and just tell them the names of some properly spaced motels along the way just to get them off that subject.One tip is they want an address where you'll be staying in Canada. Well we didn't have one and it caused a stir. Apparently just pick a place and put that address in. That's what the grouchy lady told us at the border.
