RE: Costs in Canada

One if you have $100 US Dollars as of today 2/23/17 that is ONLY worth $124 Canadian Dollars NOT 130 the OP Claimed. Well, yes and no. If you go on OANDA (used by industry) the exchange is 1.31 or $131 CAD for $100 USD, so the assertion that it's "worth" is $130 is correct. The Bank of Canada website also confirms this. However, this is NOT the rate one generally gets when exchanging cash at a bank, store or ATM. ALL institutions that exchange funds, banks included, charge fees to do the exchange. This is why it appears the actual rate is much less.

RE: Driving our homebuilt rig to Alaska....questions

I've never attempted anything like that but have been to Alaska a number of times. I agree with leaving the sailboat home-as others have said there aren't a lot of places to use it. I do, however, find it hard to believe you'd venture that way without at least one spare and that you are concerned about an additional weight of what, maybe 100 lbs? As far as your concern on the space, could you mount the tire on top of the toy hauler? I would think that with those bikes not being very large it would fit inside. Just musing as I realize how jealous I am!

RE: Taking dog with us on a cross country tour

Thank you!! Sometimes, it gets tiring, being painted with the same broad brush. No painting intended. My guess is anyone hanging out and asking questions on an RV'ing pet forum is likely to be a conscientious pet owner. I would like to think so but after some of the threads I've seen I'm not so sure!

RE: Taking dog with us on a cross country tour

It's really so very easy to know with just a modicum of effort that I'm always a bit surprised and puzzled when someone even mentions it. LOL! I'd venture a guess that 99.5% of those who take their dogs (and will leave them at the campground) wouldn't go to anywhere near those lengths to ensure their furbabies don't bark.

RE: How big an issue is weight?

Better re-read my question, that says nothing about an RV being overweight. See below. but must have acted in a way that showed a disregard for the foreseeable consequences of the actions Spelled out in the definition of Reckless Endangerment. They can't possibly put each and every scenario into the law. It's also not always the black and white of the words that's at issue, but the interpretation of said words. And there's always tort law, as mentioned above.

RE: Taking dog with us on a cross country tour

Don't get me wrong, I am a dog person, but believe that not all dogs are fit to travel. Everyone who owns a dog thinks their pet doesn't bark, and if it's a "dangerous breed" they never bite nor been aggressive towards anyone. Have to agree. If you aren't there, how do you really know that the dog doesn't bark? Just because no one complained? If the rule states no unattended pets, then all should follow the rules so that the rule doesn't become "no dogs". Amen, no crates Why? Many vets recommend this, provided they get adequate exercise and attention. Some dogs don't need it-mine prefer it. After watching the aftermath of my BIL's dog eat a battery we decided crate training is a much better alternative. I'm sure I'll get blasted by the "I never make a mistake" crowd but none of us can foresee every little possibility.

RE: How big an issue is weight?

Can you tell what law makes it a crime to pull a non-commercial overweight RV? Reckless Endangerment. Definition: Reckless endangerment is a crime consisting of acts that create a substantial risk of serious physical injury to another person. The accused person isn't required to intend the resulting or potential harm, but must have acted in a way that showed a disregard for the foreseeable consequences of the actions. The charge may occur in various contexts, such as, among others, domestic cases, car accidents, construction site accidents, testing sites, domestic/child abuse situations, and hospital abuse. State laws and penalties vary, so local laws should be consulted.

RE: How big an issue is weight?

There's another word that's far more important-it's called liability. Whether or not you knowingly overload is not relevant-if you do and there is an accident you can be cited including criminal liability.

RE: Rv park under 50k updates

Thoughts: GoFundMe account or try to find some venture-type capital. Agree with WZ above-you can't control the amount of water that will go into the system.

RE: Taking dog with us on a cross country tour

Unfortunately the trend has been you can't leave your dog unattended, even inside the unit. What I'd do is sketch out where you are going to be staying overnight and check out a few campgrounds in the area. This may help you make the decision on whether or not to bring Fido or what campgrounds to stay at.

RE: Costs in Canada

Who gives a dam what it costs? If you want to go there, GO THERE. I've traveled many times in Canada and it's so worth it. SO worth it.

RE: myrtle beach travel park

we have a 5 yr old hope he wont need a lot of potty breaks Don't deprive him but limit his liquid intake and keep him occupied-books, puzzles, naps, toys-and that should keep stops to a minimum. We always stayed at Cherry Hill Park in College Park, MD, but that's probably too close for you.

RE: Has anyone heard from Nabi?

I did a search on "nabi" "chihuahua" and "Ecuador" and she came up on a chi forum but her last post was 6/4. Didn't find anything else but didn't spend a huge amount of time searching.

RE: haircut

Thoughts and prayers to you. My mom actually pulled her hair out when she got to that point. Said it was therapeutic. It's hair-totally cosmetic, replaceable with a wig and it will grow back. Your unconditional love for each other will carry both of you through this and out the other side.

RE: Where to go for wildlife photography?

An African safari is indeed on the list but not for a few years, as is Churchill for the polar bears (or Svalbard Island of Norway). Next year we are trying to do a week in the spring and a week in late summer/early fall, henceforth the N. America request. If I'm going to travel halfway across the world I will definitely take more than a week!

RE: Brain Teaser

I think it's because we read of as "uv" or "ov" and don't associate f with it. That's part of it. The other part is our brain automatically fills in the word so we are not conscious of it.

RE: Travel plans, need your ideas?

Have been there multiple times. All of the above are great suggestions. The Mammoth site is great-incredibly interesting. I would highly recommend Bear Country USA as well. Lots of fun and just a very nice animal park. Wall Drug is much more commercial than it used to be and I found it a bit disappointing as compared to the first time I went there in 1984 but still worth a look. Love Badlands and Wind Cave as well.

RE: When do you know....?

When you make more mistakes than what having someone else do it would cost, then it's time. If it makes you miserable, it's time.

RE: Home Gym Equipment

We've talked about moving to a warmer climate so we could be out more as we are outdoor people, but I don't deal well with heat. On the up side my arms are being built up quite nicely from all the shoveling since last Thursday! :B
