As far as crossing if you want to be really safe stop at the Canadian side on the way down and register the VIN with Customs. I've never bothered as I can produce a bill of sale with the VIN from my dealer if they ever hassled us coming back.

Technically you need a permit from the WA government. I think it costs around $10 and is good for 60 days. Only problem is you have to find a place to get them from, and most are only open Monday-Friday so it's a pain for weekend warriors.
