RE: Taking a trip from Ottawa, ON to Myrtle Beach route help ?

Personally, to go from Allentown to VA beach, you wouldn't catch me on the 95 through Baltimore and DC. Take your scenic route and cross the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. I've never been myself, but I plan on it someday.

RE: Pirateland, Myrtle Beach

Watch out you don't get run over by a golf cart. Yep, golf cart heaven. Get used to golf carts rolling by your site blaring all types of music. Seems to be the resident thing to do to show off how "awesome" their cart is to all the visitors. Want to rent one from the campground, you'll pay more than renting an economy car from a car rental place. No joke. The pool and new splash pad are quite a walk from the beach. If you're close to one, you've got a way to go to get to the other. Other than that, it's not a bad place. Oceanside sites are tighter than the interior spots and are wide open, the only shade being under the canopy built on the site and your awning. The beach is awesome and, if they haven't changed the rules since we've been, they allow dogs on the beach.

RE: Medical Insurance for RVer while in Mexico

The Mexican medical care facilities are state of the art. The costs are very reasonable compared to what Is charged in the rest of North America. From what We have experienced, we would have no problem without having any add on Medical Coverage in Mexico. Pay as We go and submit the paid receipts to Our a Provincial Medical Plan. One important thing though is to separate the pharmaceutical portion from the Medical Bill and submit it to Our Pharmacare plan for reimbursement. This worked fine a couple of Years ago when I got Food Poisoning while in San Carlos! Be very careful with this: BC Medical will cover many Out of Province medical costs BUT ONLY reimburse up to the amount that they would pay to BC Hospitals. No where near US costs and less in some cases than costs in some hospitals in Mexico. A Travel Medical policy is the only safe way to go. Note to other Canadians: Out of Province also means travel WITHIN CANADA. Costs for some procedures in other provinces may not be covered. Nor will be repatriation cost for you to return to BC from another province or country. If due to a car accident in Canada or USA, ICBC insurance will cover medical costs and sometimes repatriation. Really need to pay attention to this right here. This is pretty standard with all the Provincial plans. If something would cost $1000 in your home Province to get fixed but costs $2000 where you're visiting, regardless of whether you're in another Canadian Province or the US, you're on the hook for the extra $1000.

RE: roadside assistance/towing

I count on Coach-Net and wouldn't on Good Sam. That's just me. You'll find supporters for Good Sam here too.

RE: I don't know much about workamping but....

Just curious... I know there is or may be complications with Canadians workamping in the US. Is anyone aware of potential complications of an American or Canadian workamping in Mexico?

RE: I don't know much about workamping but....

If it were me, a workamper opportunity in Mexico, depending on the amenities of your park, I'd expect a swarm of applicants the instant you put it up on sites. If I were in position to (hopefully you'll have an ad up in 11 years!), I'd certainly apply as soon as I saw it, even if it were still summer.

RE: Favorite "kid friendly" campground in Myrtle Beach ?

I can only comment about Pirate land which we did NOT like. The pool was extremely over crowded and just a big rectangle (no slide or anything to do) The lazy river was OK and the kids (8 and 11) were bored after about an 1 hour. We had a site 6 spots from the water, nice to be close to the beach, but very tight (but we knew that before we arrived).. Honestly no one (employees) were friendly. Too much going on I guess being the second week in July. The golf cart parade every night on the main drag along the beach was incredibly annoying and dangerous for all (spectators and drivers) The entire 4 days were just too hectic and crazy in that campground for us. Maybe they are all the same in July.. Finally someone who sees Pirateland, specifically the golf cart "parade", like I do. Won't be back. MBTP for me, thanks.

RE: From Pa. to the Florida Keys

Thank you everyone for all the info. We are new to this we have a 5th wheel we bought last year. We are from the Harrisburg area and have just been camping locally. But my wife wants to go to Florida for next winter. Not sure how far we will be driving each day, maybe about 400 miles. I had a GMC 1500 but just traded it for a new Chevy 2500HD. When we went to Myrtle Beach to play golf a couple of times I always went down 15 to 95. But I dont think I want to haul the 5th wheel on 15. That's the way you'd take to get to Myrtle Beach. However, to get down to Florida, you'll want the 81 to 77 to 26 to 95. Much less stressful drive and more scenic, especially through Fancy Gap. We used to go down the 95 the Harrisburg/Baltimore/DC way until the first time we went to 77. That's the way we'll take from now on. No problem with traffic around Charlotte using the 485 bypass. I use the 81/66/17/95 to Myrtle Beach, but still not to Florida. I avoid as much of the 95 as I can.

RE: Toronto to Orlando, FL

The mountains down the 77 are too beautiful to pass up, IMO.

RE: How to spend money in Canada

Depending on the fees you incur by using a debit card, instead of using an ATM, make a purchase at a Wal-Mart and use the cash back while paying using the debit card.

RE: concerns about atlantic provinces

The statement that no one in Quebec will talk English to you is nothing but another myth. If the person cannot speak English, they will make every attempt to find someone who can.Then we must have been in the wrong towns, because we got the "no English" treatment a couple of times at small towns in Quebec, when we stopped to eat. Oh it happens, not doubting it in the least. Quite frankly, I can speak both languages fluently, but you'll rarely hear me speaking French, even in Quebec. You can get a true sense of a business and the person serving you when they don't think you can understand them when they speak to each other in a language they don't think you know. I've walked out of a couple of places, but can hardly apply the experience across the entire Province. One should be able to function well enough using English only.

RE: New Brunswick

Maybe someone could move this to the appropriate forum and out of the Mexico and South America forum. I don't think we moved New Brunswick.

RE: Cigarettes are driving me crazy.

The only thing that helped me quit cold turkey was about a half hour of being genuinely scared that I was in the process of living my last few minutes of life. Although the issue I had was not related to smoking, I quit smoking and coffee at the same time that instant and never turned back.

RE: Slide doesn't stay tight to frame when driving the MH

lol, you lost me on that one. How does that board keep the bottom of the slide from working "out" of the chassis? On the inside of the coach, with the slide in, there is a lip around the slide that makes a seal when the slide is out. On the bottom, cut a piece of 2X4 the length between that lip and the wall. Wedge it in and the slide can't go out while on the road. Have to take it out before sliding it out when you need to.

RE: Driving home my point

The only time you'll see my motorhome over 55mph is when I'm on a downhill or there a big uphill coming up.

RE: Problem Using Out of State Credit Card at Pump

I don't have a zip code. Postal code in Canada and no letters at the pump. Gotta go inside. Easy solution. The three numbers in your postal code followed by 00. Worked for me every time up and down east coast.

RE: Canadian - CAA-RV vs Good Sam vs Explorer RV Club

CN is my provider, at about a third of the cost of CAA-RV.

RE: CoachNet

CN was awesome for me this winter. Needed a boost on one of the coldest days this winter. Neighbour had just called CAA and was told over an hour wait. I called CN. After hanging up the phone, I remembered I had one of those battery booster packs in the basement, but it was dead. Got it, plugged it in front of the car and hooked it up to the battery. Sat there for a couple of minutes and turned the key and it started. By the time I got in to dial the phone to cancel the CN call, I saw the truck behind my car. I was only a few minutes late to work that day, so it couldn't have taken longer than 10 minutes.

RE: Thank you all

OK, I needed to change that sig, didn't I? :D Edit: And it seems that the change didn't take. Congrats! I see it fine...
