RE: West Coast/Canada Trip

Canadian provinces have a Dept. of Tourism, which provides information for visitors including print guides. Contact each province for this guide. To do so www.google.ca and use search term "name of province & tourism". Visitors centers are run by the provinces. Municipalities may also run webpages helpful to tourists, but the larger tourist center is provincial. I post this information because I have visited Australia. I was acutely disappointed to find that Aussie states aren't tuned in on the value of encouraging tourist $ via the visitors guide. It took me quite a bit of my 3 months visit to learn how to find the municipal offices with info both on where to camp and places I'd enjoy. Or, Camps Australia Wide only gives so much. :C

RE: Trans Canada trip: Nova Scotia to Calgary

Be aware...Saskatchewan has NO rest areas for RV's. Only cars are allowed and they have big yellow posts close together to make sure. Use truck stops if you need a break Would a truck camper fit? :C

RE: Trans Canada trip: Nova Scotia to Calgary

You don't have to return the same way that you go. Except for right north of Lake Superior that is. In Quebec you can go up around Lake Saguenay and across to Kirkland Lake and Timmins, etc. & after Lake Superior there are several more northern ways through the Prairie provinces. :B

RE: My Experience re. shipping to Canada

The US Post Office picks up and delivers mail and packages. My guess is that the sender does not want more than one account to maintain and has chosen FedEx or UPS as their sender. Yes, but you can do all forms online and print at home or your office, except for parcel post. For parcel post you have to fill out forms at the post office. :C

RE: My Experience re. shipping to Canada

I used to ask for parcels to be shipped 'parcel post' or ground. But when things got computerized, that one became a: "have to bring that to the post office" item. Means of shipping where forms can be filled out online cost more. I don't know all the names. But yes, I always feel guilty about pushing the sender to go to the Post Office, when, do it online and the P.O. picks up. Very hard to blame the sender on that one. Still, the item could go through the Post Office and you wouldn't pay that brokerage/record keeping fee. That's what I ask for. :C

RE: Can a dog

My dogs enhance a trip. But I want a dog to have reached a certain stage of training before I go. :C

RE: My Experience re. shipping to Canada

I've also known a shipper to insure the parcel at a value they wish the auction had reached, like $100 to $200 more than my winning bid. & then had Canada Post use that value for charging GST amount. Thus, if I think of it, I'll send a message to the shipper to please use the auction amount for the value and explain about our GST. Most seem to understand that. :C

My Experience re. shipping to Canada

Yes, anything being imported with a price over $20.00 should have the GST collected, most of the time. Sometimes, when you've bought used off a market site, such as Ebay, they will not collect the GST. Their option their rules. What is the most maddening is that there is a difference in fees charged for the shipper to collect that GST. My most recent experience is: - Postal Services Us, Au......, = $5.00 collection fee - UPS $20.00 up to a value of $200.00 $30.00 after that. Beyond that I have no personal experience. :C Yes, I have been known to ask an Ebay seller to ship via their postal service and explained my preference.

RE: 1st long trip,Colo. to New England to Nova Scotia and back.

OK, if you want to know about Canada, go to Canada. 1. www.google.ca means searching in Canadian sites. Search "name of province & tourism". Do at least Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Ferry from Maine will stop in very early October. You will have to go through New Brunswick. 2. Go to section of this forum, called RVing in Canada and Alaska. Browse for threads on these 2 provinces. Search all stickies for relevant border crossing information. 3. Check with local sources in person for camp grounds that may be open to serve folks living in an rv and working in that city. Atlantic Canada (NS, NB, PEI, & NL) have a long fall. Yes, there may be some frost, but days can be quite nice.\ The Fortress at Louisbourg in Cape Breton Island is an unusual reconstruction for Canada and well work checking for opening times in the fall. :B

RE: Redirected to advertising when clicking a topic.

If you use the browser Firefox, you can add the option AD Bloc+. Then, if you go to the forum via Woodalls, you will find a variation on the format of quite a few pages. I happen to like going into Open Roads Forum via Woodalls portal these days. FWIW, just google Woodalls and pick the forum option. :C

RE: Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick in late Sept, Early Oct.

Camp grounds close to towns, where folks might use their rv as a home for a job, could be open, i.e. Fredericton, Saint John, Charlottetown, Halifax, etc. There are also ways to boondock for a night or so. Again, as said, lots of little things open, fall foliage is great. Some seasonal restaurants stay open through the first weekend of October. Puppy will enjoy anyway. BTW likely more will be open on PEI this year. It's 150 years since the first Confederation Conference in Charlottetown , that was the start for getting Canada together. Some special things continue through the fall, not sure how many. :B

RE: New Canadian currency melts?

The toonie is also known as the Queen with a bear behind. While Queen Elizabeth is on the front there is a bear on the backside. Never heard of it. I'm Canadian. X2

RE: taking cats into canada

There are regulations on file that permit customs on either side to take, ie confiscate pet food. What can trigger that is events in either or both countries, such a bird flu. In which case, your pet food might include poultry as a source of protein. I travel with pet food I can buy in either country. If I had a pet with a special diet, I would always carry a signed copy of my vets prescription for such special diet. :C ps. there are stickies in the section of this forum called RVing in Canada and Alaska that cover lots of border crossing info.

RE: crossing the borders (food & fuel)

Just a thought. Coming from the UK you are likely used to prices determined by a high density population. Checking google, US has 317 million people as of 2014. Canada has a population of 35 million. Of course it makes a difference in prices. Gasoline to drive on so many roads, for one. But as has been said, food prices are close, especially when you think of freshness. Enjoy :C

RE: Labrador

Report from friend who was just up as far as Happy Valley - Goose Bay. "They are working on the road between Red Bay and Port Hope Simpson. taking our the rock cuts and going around and making it a bit wider. Lots of heavy traffic on the road at times. " :C

RE: Labrador

I got a reply to my query to Transportation and Works re. routes 500 and 510, specifically: "What parts of these two routes have pavement? Are connecting roads paved. Please advise." Reply: "In response to your email requesting road surface condition; Ø Route 500 (Boarder in Labrador West to Goose Bay) is 546 km, of which 486 is paved and 60 km is a well graded gravel surface. Ø Route 510 (Goose Bay to L’anse au Clair) is 606 km, of which 80 km is paved and 526 is a well graded gravel surface. All of the connecting / access roads have a well graded gravel surface. As an added note, the gravel road within Labrador is well maintained, wet weather and gravel roads generally don’t provide the ideal driving conditions." :B

RE: Labrador

You could also try towns, as found via google.ca, http://www.happyvalley-goosebay.com/ . Ask them a couple of questions, one of which would be roads going to and from that town and nearby road repairs. Dates of special events and local festivals, name of newspaper and maybe online url, also. :C
