I think the crossings are more of an issue going overseas to be honest where you coming/going through an airport. I grew up in Oregon going to British Columbia and just came back from Victoria Monday on a road trip. It could be a fluke but my experience is mostly the same over the years in that by ferry or by land the crossings are very rarely more than a general 45 second conversation about why you are entering/leaving either country. I don't think I have ever been asked about anything beyond if I have fruit.
