RE: Dog and Copperhead

I have been within 3 feet of a copperhead 2x. First time I heard snake hiss and called for help. My then boyfriend brought a long rod tool, maybe an axe and whacked it. The second time was walking near a river with rocky shoreline. Again I called for help and this time my then husband threw a rock to make the snake go away from me. I don't know that I could have thrown with such accuracy had our positions been reversed. You all did well. :B

RE: Hard Boiled Eggs that peel great every time.

Is it best to wait till the egg is out of the chicken ?? That may be what I'm doing wrong. Yep, especially given that a suitably wrung necked chicken, who has been a good layer, will have several eggs in the developmental cavity, most without a shell. I speak from experience, Dennis. ;)

RE: Fantasy RV Tours Canadian Maritme first timer

Among other things, go to www.google.ca, yes you want google with domain for Canada. Search "name Of province" tourism. Email or better call their 800 #. Ask for latest 'visitors guide' and provincial map. Tell person on the phone activities you enjoy (music festivals, hiking, historic sites, beaches...whatever). Chances are they have special booklets for these things to do. Consider Northern Maine as well. At one time this was part of early Canadian Settlers. The Maritimes (NB, NS, PEI, or provinces that entered confederation in 19th c.) New Brunswick: - Islands of Campobello (Roosevelt cottage), Deer Island, Grand Manan - Historic Acadien Village - City Market Saint John - Fundy Park - Tidal Bore Nova Scotia - Louisbourg historic fortress. It's a reconstruction with staff in historic dress. Food service included. You park in a lot and are bused to the site. Plan on at least 1/2 day. More would be better. The most must do of The Maritimes. - Historic Halifax - The Ovens - Peggy's Cove - Farmer's Daughter, Whycogamgh. - Cabot Trail (Cape Breton Highlands National Park, nice, but no comparison to Gros Morne National Park in Newfoundland) - Meat Cove, top of Cape Breton Island - More tidal things on western side. PEI - Historic Charlottetown - Beaches (haven't done those since age of 15) - All the stuff about Anne of Green Gables Love all the books, not into things which are like seeing the movie after reading the book. Still many go to them. - Historic Village as built. Orwell Corner. Staff in timely dress. Animals with babes, ie colts, lambs, piglets, agricultural museum. - Neighboring Sir Andrew MacPhail Homestead. - Lobster My fav. New Glasgow Lobster Suppers - Farmer's Markets, especially Charlottetown. - Take the ferry to PEI and the Bridge FROM. You pay to cross the water when you leave. Bridge costs less. Atlantic Canada (means all eastern provinces including Newfoundland and Labrador, which joined Canada in 1949. This is Joey' term) - Gros Morne National Park. Both north of Bonne Bay and south of Bonne Bay. See visitors centers at both. Tour the fjords at Trout River and Western Brook Pond. & more, Summer Theatre at Cow Head, esp. Tempting Providence (historic Nurse Bennet) - Other Summer festivals and theatre - Start at Port aux Basques and work your way up the Northern Peninsula. Take in Viking sites both at southern Newfoundland and the two at the top of the Northern Peninsula. L'anse aux Meadows is a World Heritage site. - Scads of interest in many a town or village all along the routes to St. John's., which is also of great historic interest. - Climb Mtn. of Gros Morne - Bay St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary. Come back, cross to Labrador. and do lots there. - Red Bay. Whaling site of Basques whalers. - Labrador City. - You can drive all the way. Check about road conditions. It was fine when I did it but sometimes there is a year with poor road conditions. Have lived in 3 of these provinces. NL for 24.5 years, but back across The Gulf now. :B

RE: Hard Boiled Eggs that peel great every time.

Hard cooked eggs. Yes, hot water, but not boiling. You want it to almost boil, but not quite. Better if eggs are close to room temperature too. Now, Put eggs in simmering water and cook for 18 - 20 minutes, depending on size. Remove from heating unit and take pot and all to sink. Drain off water. Add cold water, drain again. Add fresh cold water to fill pot. Let sit about 10 minutes. Drain. Peel. Deviled Eggs Slice peeled egs in 1/2. take out egg yolks. Use fork or other to break up yolks. Add mayonnaise or other thinner (sour cream?). & flavourings, especially horseradish, pepper, mustard...... to your taste. Use yolk filling to refill space where yolks were. (haven't made them since I retired). :B

RE: Boondocking NS & Newfie..?

Granted I moved away from Newfoundland in 2008, but in my time, I simply cruised allowing an hour to find a place. Often and often I found places where a campground had been set up, but never continued. So, you'd have a site for parking and setting up that would do just fine. Most municipalities with information centers have a place for dumping. Enjoy. :B

RE: NB and PEI in a week?

All right. Alternative places to see. Real sites, not imitation. I've neither been to the Anne theatre or to the tourist site. I love the books and know them well. I just know better than to think someone can do an interpretation I'll agree with. So, history, neighboring places. Orwell Corner historic village. Sir Andrew MacPhail homestead. Real people lived in these places. They are not something someone made up. :C

RE: NB and PEI in a week?

A hint - if going to PEI, take the ferry from NB over to PEI and come back on the bridge. The ferry charges by the foot whereas the bridge is a set fee for RV's. On PEI, be sure to spend some time in Charlottetown and visit Founder's Hall. Also the play, Anne of Green Gables is enjoyable for all ages. It runs until Sept. 23rd. Re. PEI, if you're not going to NS, take the bridge both ways. You can tour bits of that too. Founders Hall is closed! Cruises from Georgetown or Montague on the east coast are nice for those with slow walking skills. If in Montague, have lunch at Windows on the Water restaurant after. New Glasgow Lobster Suppers is also open through all of September. PEI also has special lighthouses: Point Prim, Cape Bear. Google them. :B

RE: Firewood Ontario

On the other hand most species of living items have started somewhere and got to the America's over time. For example, the honey bee: No Apis species existed in the New World during human times before the introduction of A. mellifera by Europeans..... Species of Apis are generalist floral visitors, and pollinate a large variety of plants, but by no means all plants. Of all the honey bee species, only A. mellifera has been used extensively for commercial pollination of crops and other plants. The value of these pollination services is commonly measured in the billions of dollars. Bees collect 66 lb of pollen per year per hive. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honey_bee So, while there are species who do great harm to an ecology when they arrive as invaders, not all are that way. The honey bee arrived from Europe. What would we do without them now. Or several species of raptors, ie, the predatory birds who clean up dead animal remains. DDT just about wiped them out. & you know very well that humans couldn't begin to pick up after life is gone from many critters, plants, etc. How wonderful that there are eagles, falcons, ospreys all over the world. Unfortunately, I don't know enough to really say what good insects accomplish. No doubt they do some good for our various ecologies. The world doesn't come to an end because insects enter firewood. :C

RE: Firewood Ontario

Has this wood been any place where insects could attach themselves to it? But as Gordon says, check with CBSA. & I'm sure you know CBSA is stretched further than the limit of present staffing levels can go -- given that there are so many seeking to move from the USA to Canada. I think you might also check Ontario provincial regulations too. ON has limits on camping on crown land and it is a big province. It would not surprise me if there are provincial limits on how far you can travel and use wood. :C

RE: What do you cooked in your Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker

A pressure cooker that is a real pressure cooker saves time. Mine has separate containers that fit together. 3 containers make a layer. Thus you can take one out if that item is done. & leave the rest. i.e. snap beans take 5 minutes steaming. Potatoes and beets 25 to 30 minutes in normal boiling water. 1/2 that in the pressure cooker. Usually, when camping I cook meat separately and cut to size to match cooking time for the rest of the meal. :C

RE: crossing border with food

Try growing a garden, that'll teach you. Next, find out how to grow vegetables without insect repellent. Example, use soap in a 2 gallon watering can and put that over your cabbage and cauliflower once a week. :P

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
Little Kopit 06/26/17 05:48am RVing in Canada and Alaska

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
