comment Canadian Greyhound - is there a charge for bringing an extra snowboard?
That answer covers bringing a skateboard ON the bus, rather than being charged for checking a snowbard :/

A snowboard (mine is 157cm) is generally considerably longer than a skateboard, which is what concerns me :/

comment Is traveling from Uyuni (Bolivia) to San Pedro (Chile) easy?
Salt Flats tours from from Uyuni to San Pedro, San Pedro to Uyuni, or from one of those two to Tupiza, normally. So you'd get a tour from Uyuni to San Pedro, yes :)

In addition, you really want to stop wording your questions subjectively - this one's not too bad as there's only one way really to cross the border, but the bit about asking whether to buy a tour - again, it's totally subjective - some people don't like town tours, others do. You'll want to ask the question in a way that describes what YOU want to do - and then ask for the best way to go about it. Subjective questions will generally get closed, as per the rules in the faq.

I'll answer the first part, but the second part should be asked as a separate question - as per the faq, one question per post is the policy on SE sites.
