Thou shalt not pass - oh, okay

'Link of the Day' at User Friendly is a high-altitude glider project which has performed test flights near Vancouver, Canada.
Because of this location, the glider had to be retrieved from an island across the US border ("hey mister, can we have our ball back?") after the problematic first flight in June 2001.  Even several months before 11 September, US Customs made fairly thorough checks before allowing the team to enter the USA.  However:

The border crossing back into Canada consisted of a big red sign at the end of a deserted marina slip, with a 1-800 number. We called the number from a cell [phone!] and they 'let us back in' over the phone.
