RE: Fuel Stops in New Brunswick

Fuel prices. Diesel least in NS Gasoline least in PEI. If you want the links to the regulatory boards, ask, I have them for all provinces in Atlantic Canada. Usually under 'utilities board', but not all are that way. & I stop at stations which are convenient for where I am, given that I have a TC. :C ps. betcha a station in Calais, ME is lower than any Canadian site.

RE: Trans-Canada Highway

This question is just about killing me..."as you prepare to travel the #1 from Banff to...Washington State"..? what? If you mean...do you need to carry extra fuel? no. Water? no. Six spare tires? no. Quarters for the pay phones? no. Borrow a gun to defend yourself? no. Are there places to stop? yes. Food? yes. Are there other travelers?..safety in numbers, I know...yes. Is it smooth gravel all the way? no..it's paved. Gary Haupt Killing response Gary. You left out diesel, in case this a person who lives in cities where that's hard to find, where as long distance roads have many diesel fuel stations. Or should we encourage this party to come east, take shorish roads of NS, paved sure, but they twist all over and match the original land routes between settlements (when water transport was easier)? :P

RE: Our July 4th Menu - What's Yours?

I agree with your relative. My menus are: 1 protein dish 3 varied vegetable dishes. of which one is a strong carbohydrate, such as potatoes, 1 is a strong green veg, and one betwixt and between, or peas, parsnips, beets, carrots all have a certain carb content. I've seen some do potatoes, turnips and peas for their veggies and that makes me cringe. There are also such things as tomatoes, which are served as a veg, when they are really fruit.* I'm sure the dieticians would have definite comments about too high a percentage of protein, or too high salt content. * I invented a great stew of late, --stewed tomatoes could be 2.5 c. tomatoes to 1/2 c. of each of other ingredients, except meat or 1 c. or more beef cubes ---diced beef --sliced parsnip --sliced onion (i.e,. 1/4" x 1") --diced celery The parsnip is the taste maker. Brown beef cubes before other adds. :C

Missed the boondocking question. Yes, you can with care I only said in about 4 cgs. :C

Plan at least a month for round trip, When I had thought about doing cross continent, I thought 2 months. In the end I did it in a bit over a month. Go two different routes I went north on the going way Lake Saguenay, and across to Timmins thence because you have to down to Thunder Bay. & worked north really starting at Winnipeg. Had to go up and down a bit Hay River, Fort St. John, Whitehorse, Skagway. Coming back, my bit want was Royal Tyrell Museum, which I know you've seen. I guess my point is find yourself some targets and go for them. Sault Ste Marie has Agawa Canyon with much colour in fall, There are historic features all the way east of there. Yeah time wise, it's nice to go around Toronto, Montreal Quebec City, but don't leave them out of your life And make sure you go all the way east, like St. John's. The wisdom re. spending your $ on Marine Atlantic Ferry is two weeks on the island of Newfoundland. Don't know but what you might include a day up and down the mountain of Gros Morne. Enjoy. :B

RE: Stale technology impacting RV.net forums?

Someone else had to point out the specifics to me and I've forgotten them. So, like you, I don't know if that situation could be still there. I mentioned in case it's still the case. :C

RE: Stale technology impacting RV.net forums?

Back in the days when I went to irv2, I learned that they were really run by advertisers. Once you knew who were the advertisers who owned irv2, you could see how stuff paying them got favored. I tried to speak up for stuff not having anything to do with the pay guys and that brought and end to my participation. Of course, management may have changed. You might check that out and let us all know. :C

Relevant changes re. Border Services

The present Government of Canada tabled some new legislation today which affects the Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA) http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/security-terrorism-legislation-1.4168780 (& that is supposed to be a url, but it won't let me make it clickable in the quote box) (the legislation aims) aims to strike a better balance between strengthening security in a fast-changing threat environment, and safeguarding the charter and privacy rights of Canadians. the new expert review body, called the National Security and Intelligence Review Agency,.... It will also have jurisdiction over every government department and agency that has a security or intelligence role, including the Canada Border Services Agency. I've seen inconsistencies from CBSA as we cross the border and those rulings for foreign boats entering Canadian ports. Of course, I'm thinking this will be a way to sort such things out. :C hmm http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/security-terrorism-legislation-1.4168780

RE: Quebec City Info

Good treatment comes from good interest by the visitor. I have seen this time and again. I have found that using what French I have helps locals see my interest. & doing things like trying to track down a place where I might hose down my camper or have someone in a vehicle service business wash my camper after I had done a gravel/clay road in rainy weather. Believe it or not it seems that folks will put that effort off. So, my request was asking for help the same as I would want at home. The gal who did the work wanted to make my camper so shining clean that I could take into a competition. Again taking an interest in where I was at the time. For comparison, Baie Comeau, QC or Skagway, AK. :C

RE: How are the mozies this year?

Betcha those little violins are in full orchestral splendor and hunger everywhere, the whole country. Come equipped with your fav. buzz off containers, including the pump sprays to spray your clothes before you venture out. :P

RE: An Apology to my Canadian Neighbors

Ok, Canada is not alone. I don't know how many other countries, don't have guns, except for hunting, but having been to Australia, I'm quite sure about them, they don't & their hunting regulations for use of guns are more strict than those in Canada. & remember, they have scads and scads of rabbits. Humans brought rabbits to Oz, so they lack natural wildlife enemies. Re. rabbits, remember saying: "breed like rabbits". ;)

RE: Dont forget Prince Edward Island

Guessing my arrival to be around mid June so will check back on this thread for more advice/must see/must do/must eat. Check festivals. Each province has them. ie. StanFest in NS, Festival of Small Halls in PEI, check East Coast Music Association awards 2017 for suggestions of groups. Lots of good ones around Atlantic Canada. & don't cry too hard if some are out of this area in summer. For example, 10 Strings and a Goatskin, could not be in Canada to accept their ECMA award this year because the King of Sweden had them booked for those dates. :B

RE: Dont forget Prince Edward Island

the later ferries get to pei close to dark, nice big walmart in Charlottetown, lots of campers there usually, 30-45 minutes from the ferry You can do lots better than that!!! If you're thinking places to park/camp just use your eyes. & there is a visitors center very shortly after you leave the ferry where staff will help and give you a visitors guide. I'm not a beach person, but I liked them when I was 15. So, my adult favs: going towards Charlottetown, the Orwell Corner historic village and museum and the Sir Andrew MacPhail Homestead, (kids, Chuckwagon eatery and playground), the Charlottetown Farmer's Market {go with empty freezer and empty tummy, Wed. or Sat.} Panmure Island, Strathgartney cg. with walks. Look at map for walks and scenic roads (prov. map)., New Glasgow Lobster Suppers for food and scenery. Lots of good places to eat too. & tours of Charlottetown too. Cape Bear Lighthouse all the way east along the shore road to the end of pave and hang a right per signs. Point Prim Lighthouse near Eldon, the one and only round lighthouse constructed of bricks, not to mention Wood Islands Lighthouse right when you get off the ferry (hang a right before you leave the ferry peninsula.) ---- course I'm forgetting quite a few lighthouses as I write. :B

RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

myredracer, quote... "I wish Americans would leave their firearms at home.You just don't need them here unless your going hunting or heading to Alaska". With that attitude, I hope that our military follows that concept when/if you "ever" need help!!!! Oh but the way..... You Canadians are many millions of dollars in arrears on your NATO dues!!! Well, me son, I've heard that THE USA is behind with UN support. None of us is expert on t'other country. ;)

RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

Along with CA, NY, and IL, Canada and Mexico are places we will never visit again. Too many rules that don't agree with our life style. I strongly recommend you go visit an ISIS locale, something even more different and challenging. ;)

RE: Nova Scotia Info - esp Cabot Trail

By the By all of Atlantic Canada has very good entertainers. Lots of festivals for summer. In the time since 1983, the weekend entertainment in Corner Brook has increased so that folks from other parts of said island and southern Labrador are as like to come to Corner Brook to shop and take in the shows as St. John's. In 1983 lots more Newfoundlanders would shop in SJ than.... Check out East Coast Music Association. ;)
