RE: How much snow is too much.

Density counts...so does water content. Four feet of snow from one snowfall is a lot lighter than four feet total over a season. Dunno what "standard" there is if any for Rv's, but typical residential roofs are designed to withstand 30 pounds of load per square foot, which is roughly four feet of fluffy snow, two feet of dense snow, or six inches of water (ice). If you want to know how much weight is on your RV roof right now, just go out there and scoop up a cubic foot of whatever's up there. Weigh that, multiply by the depth, and you'll have the per-square-foot load actually on the roof.

RE: A very secure load

Edit: OOPS! I posted the pic below as bragging rights for the U.S.A.'s long history of overloading trucks... but just realized that the pic itself is from AUSTRALIA!

RE: Language barriers?

I'm a Western border dweller, so little contact with French-speaking Canadians. But Canadian ENGLISH can be perplexing at times, too. Favorites picked up from my neighbors-to-the-North are "keener", "fubar", and "hooped" none of which I understood until I looked them up in the closest thing to an online guide to Canuckspeak I could find, at this link

RE: Would you buy this truck?

"$28K"??? I'd have to see the paperwork to believe it. Not that used car dealers ever lie! ;)

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

One of my Mexican buddies who is a dually, Mexican and Canadian, when he and his wife enter the U.S., they use their Canadian passports, when entering Canada, they use their Mexican passports. He shouldn't do that. If you have citizenship in a country, you are to use that country's passport to enter. Says who? There is absolutely nothing that says you have to. The language quoted below from a Canadian Government site having to do with Mexican travel seems to indicate that at least when entering/leaving MEXICO, holders of dual Canadian/Mexican citizenship are to use their Mexican passports. Seems logical to presume they're to use their Canadian docs when entering Canada. Under Mexican legislation (Art. 12, Ley de Nacionalidad), holders of dual Canadian and Mexican citizenship are required to enter and leave Mexico as Mexican citizens. Those who contravene the law may incur heavy fines (Art. 33-1, Ley de Nacionalidad). Source

RE: A Return Trip to Alaska Motivation

Never been to Alaska, but I've made return trips to other destinations. Reason being that the first time everything was new- second trip allows one to concentrate on areas of interest already "learned".

RE: Using propane heater exhaust as a outside heat source?

Restricting exhaust flow will reduce the efficiency of the "engine" generating it or shut it down altogether. That's the whole basis of the old "potato stuck on the tailpipe" thing we thought was so comical when we were kids! Or those of us who can remember that far back did, anyhow...;)

RE: Progressive insurance charges a cancellation fee

Why cancel? Just don't send in the renewal premium. $30 saved.... Maybe...except that it would go down in his credit/insurance record as a cancellation for nonpayment. Likely to cost more than thirty bucks in the long run.

RE: Progressive insurance charges a cancellation fee

If you think thirty bucks to cancel is steep, wait until you try to cover it again!

RE: Unfriendly customs officers :(

Interesting feedback so far...Canadians unanimously disagree with the U.S.American O.P.'s negative view of U.S. Border guards; U.S.Americans unanimously endorse it!

RE: Firewood.. what do you do?

Hope "Rockhill Manor's" first name is Francis, because that's who posted the words you quoted! :@ You are misinterpreting his attempt at humor here. "Lighten up, Francis" is a memorable quote from Sgt. Hulka in the movie Stripes. And it is commonly used to indicate that someone (not necessarily named Francis) is taking something too seriously. The Statement does not refer to you just because your name is similar. So "lighten up, Francis" Link to movie clip:S O-o-o-o-h...thanks!

RE: Firewood.. what do you do?

Per that USDA sticker thing- as indicated below, USDA only inspects wood from officially quarantined areas. There is no inspection even available for wood from non-quarantined areas- thus no sticker. Many States, however, do have place-of-origin labeling requirements like Iowa's below. BTW: Eab only affects hardwoods, mostly ash of course. http://i.imgur.com/fP3SJJNl.jpg 22 States and Canada are now part of the quarantine so that should give everyone an idea just how enormous the problem has become. It's not as bad as that, though certainly it's bad enough. The areas outlined in blue below are the current Federal Quarantine areas; these are the only areas where the USDA would be performing inspections/certifications. The only reason for my post was to clear up confusion as to when the USDA inspection shield must be on firewood. I got the impression that there was a misunderstanding that it should be on any firewood bundle, no matter where it came from. This isn't correct- it must appear only on wood that comes from inside those boundaries. Click pic to enlarge http://i.imgur.com/hlB00JUl.jpg "border=0"
