RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

Any way to get there other than ferry? To NFLD? Fly, or swim ... but in either case you won't be taking your RV. :W Nonsense, there's a lot you can't do, if you tie yourself down to staying in burgs. You get what you pay for and with an RV you should have a fair idea of how to economize on the road. Cooking at least 1/2 of your meals as you do at home is one. :C

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

You can get to Labrador from Quebec, cross Labrador, then take a ferry from Blanc Sablon, QC to Newfoundland. In my photo collection are pics of me going the opposite way. My choice was to stop for the tours of hydro dams and related developments. Labrador City had a special day the day I happened to be there and aside from various races, the whole place was closed up. Also, I should mention that you can drive all the way across Labrador now and some is paved. & I still think the rver who emailed each and every municipality with a web page had a great trip. Always ask locals. Then when you get to Newfoundland give yourself at least two weeks, better 4 to visit all around. Without a doubt it's changed since I moved across the Gulf in 2008. Fish/seafood for eating natch. Larger centers for general shopping and gasoline. Check Public Utilities Board for gas prices, ie. costs less Deer Lake through Corner Brook than south around Stephenville. St. John's being the largest most dense population area has lowest gas prices. Some absolute musts: L'Anse aux Meadows, Gros Morne both sides of Bonne Bay, Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary, a selection of St. John's. Check what festivals are where. Play Tempting Providence @ Gros Morne Theatre festival in Cow Head. 'Tis local history. :B

RE: Site to check my speed of internet access

Thanks to you both. I will do my checking in the day time, first. {{{ Interesting, although that site indicates an area of eastern N. Am. continent, it gives me ads of Canadian interest, like the musical Come From Away. Ok, ok, I know that's going to Broadway, but it is about Sept. 11, 2001 in and around Gander, NL. }} :C

If Inukshuk 32/32 Professional (707kcal/cup) GOOD HEAVENS! That's like Rocket Fuel for dogs..... Just go check out the daily temperatures in that part of Canada, Dec. to Apr.

Site to check my speed of internet access

Yep, I may not have broad band. So, I'd like the suggestion of a site where I can go ask what my downloading speed is. I'm 400' from the nearest house and more than a kilometer from a convenience store/sub post office. I think a Canadian site would be a good idea, but am not sure. & here's why I'm asking: http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/crtc-internet-essential-service-1.3906664 Canadian Radio and Telecommunications Commission today ruled that broadband Internet service is essential to Canadians and has put up $ and time to make this happen. Just in case you don't know 75% of our over 36,000,000 (a wee bit more than California) live within 100 miles of the U.S/Canada border. Got that, this ruling likely affects something like 9 million people (of course, it's less than 9 mil. because of places like Fort McMurray located quite a bit more than 100 miles from border.) & curiosity question please. I'm paying $99.00/mo. for my access. How does that compare? :h

RE: Sam was out maneuvered or out gunned

What is the percentage of animals who recover completely from Lyme disease. (When I lived in Newfoundland, it was a non-issue. Only when I moved across The Gulf did my pets need Lyme protection, so I'm new to it and I'm not finding google to be a good tool) :C

RE: What's With All the Down Time for this Site?

Given that I've only had one early morning down time for the whole Open Roads Forum in the last two weeks, I have to suggest that you check your local connections and how they connect with the outside world/internet. I would also comment that in my 13 years of reading here, things always slow down around Christmas time. Should anyone be surprised at that? They pick up after New Years. :C

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

We want to rv in Newfoundland and Nova Scotia next. We have visited Newfie 2x and loved it, but we didn't take the RV. That turned out to be beyond our budget. I lived in Newfoundland for 24.5 years. Traveling by rv should be less than any other way, except motorcycle and tent. Something is out of kilter here. I certainly have heard of places where the facility owner, would say, 'use our parking lot'. Of course, this plan includes taking the ferry Port aux Basques to N. Sydney both ways. The Argentia costs lots more. & there are ways to be careful about gasoline cost too. Check Public Utilities Board for fuel prices: http://www.pub.nf.ca/orders/ppo/fuel/Fuel_161208.pdf Memorize this url http://www.roads.gov.nl.ca/cameras/default.stm There are lots of related travel links. Still, I should say my reason for moving away from NL upon retirement was to get away from the ferry cost. It's a very big source of outmigration, especially for those with grandchildren living 'away'. :C

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

I email many of the Canadian Provinces tourism office and received good information. At times too much. British Columbia is well covered in books about the Alaska Highway such as The Milepost. Alberta is partly covered in The Milepost as well. Yep, as this post says ask: "name of province + tourism". If you have special things you like to do a call to the 800 is what I find is best. & there are parts of provinces where you can 'boondock' or just park, providing you have the equipment for 'dry camping' I have a truck camper. In 2015 I did 18,000 kilos maritimes to Alaska and back and only stayed in a 'campground' about 6 or 7 times. & that also comes under the heading 'ask locals' :B

RE: LA family leaves dog at shelter... because

I haven't read the full thread or looked at the video. When I was a child a dog of ours lost his mother and had never been separated from her. My parents put an ad in the paper. "Well behaved dog with personal loss for sale." A family in the oldest of cars came to see him and my parents were sure he would be cared for. A year later they brought him back for a visit. He ran to all of his favourite places, gave us all lots and lots of kisses and returned to his new family car when called. Our dog with a great big grief had an excellent happy rest of his life. (His name was Tawny. Look up the fiction book about the hero in a cowboy story, who had also suffered a loss. It's an oldy but goodie available on the used bookstore market. By Thomas C. Hinkle. 1927 original publishing date. :C

What's the average weight of coyotes down there? Where I am they usually run 35-40 lbs, but one over 65 lbs was trapped in 2012. :C

RE: cast iron damaged?

I've always understood that cast iron needs to be heated slowly and cooled slowly. Thus, let your heat source go out and die. Take you pans out of that place after they are cooled to the air around them and you. :C

RE: Trans-Labrador Highway

I did it in 2006, when parts of it were not finished. They were finished and all connected in 2009. Much paving has been done since. At that time I lived in Newfoundland. Photos are in links in my signature. There is a power dam to happen at Muskrat Falls. Very recently the construction side was occupied by residents concerned about the environmental effects of not removing all organic matter. I can't find the settlement article, but via cbc.ca/news I've found a bit: http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/muskrat-falls-quotes-protests-1.3815505 Nevertheless, traffic has to get through and no doubt the government of Newfoundland and Labrador will find a way. I'd like to do it again. :B

RE: recipe archive

I went down the page below this thread. There is a line for a topic, then advanced search, and the words recipe archive appear. I put in 'roast beef', that being something many of us enjoy, then clicked on the words "advanced search". A new screen appeared. Again I put in 'roast beef' as a likely topic, and clicked on the words more than 12 months old. I was told it could be 'slow'. But I didn't even wait a minute before I was given a list and told there were 643 items on that list. Try it. Sorry, don't have time to do a print screen and then produce images to post here. :C

RE: Reseasoning a Dutch oven

If you were reseasoning (or newly seasoning) use the method Little Kopit mentioned. The only change i would add is to heat it up on your BBQ. That way you don't get the smoke (if any) in the house. This is a good site for recipes, there are tons on the net, just Google. Warning though...it can eat up your time searching for recipes!! Camp-cook recipes 410' F in house oven with plant oil gives NO SMOKE, no smell to my nose. Animal fat @ 500'F does give smoke and smell up the house. :C
