You have a lot of cameras???

Friday night I embarked on my trip along the north shore of Lakes Erie and Ontario. Well the Canadian Border agent in the booth, decided a 51 year old male in a car by himself, couldnt just be entering Canada with the sole purpose of Driving to Northern New York. As I was going thru Secondary, the Inspector going thru my car, paused and looked at me and said You have a lot of Cameras, it was a question not a statement. My only answer was yeah I collect old cameras. He handed me my EDL and Yellow slip and said your car is good go inside and see the imigration agents. After more quizing and having to run back to the car to get my hotel reservations, I was on my way after about 45 mins.

I have heard many times that Single middle age guys on Vacation with no set purpose or Itenerary is a red flag, so I actually expected it. It was kinda fun to actually be suspected of being up to no good for once.

Really? You have no idea? List of Islamist terrorist attacks - Wikipedia
There are non-Islamic mass murders and terrorist acts as well.

Almost all perpetrated by young to middle age men traveling alone or in small groups.

Since you can't recognize a terrorist and/or other killer by looking at them, it behooves us all to at least look closely at military age men traveling alone.
