RE: Cooking on the Campfire

The point of seasoning is to seal the cast iron surface with carbon. If the pores in the cast iron are "open", would it not rust every time it gets water on it? Seal with hardened oil, me son, not carbon. Put brain in gear please. What is soap or soap products supposed to do, but break down oil and grease. Water alone don' do none o' dat, dat is unlessens youse let it soak in a water tub with an electrolysis rig. 'K :W

RE: Cooking on the Campfire

If you use cast iron cookware, you will not use soap. Cast iron cookware is seasoned by baking a thin coat of oil on all surfaces. If you use soap that goes into the pores of the iron and is bad news. :C

RE: Cooking on the Campfire

If you use cast iron utensils, this can be your main style or fuel for cooking. :B

RE: Travelling From Sarnia Ont. to New Brunswick

If you`re going to make comparisons to the Cabot Trail, look across The Gulf. Gros Morne National Park is the best national park I`ve enjoyed. I used to live 1.5 hours drive from the southern side of that park. Take at least a week to each side, south of Bonne Bay and north of Bonne Bay. & that`s not allowing for the rest of said province. ;)

RE: Travelling From Sarnia Ont. to New Brunswick

Yep worked out of Sudbury in the 70s. - Worked with teams in NE ON and Western ON. Thus, leaving The Maritimes, took ferry across R. St. Lawrence to St. Simeon and up along the Saguenay. Could have done more there. Headed west in Val d'Or area and over to route 11 to see Timmins and Kirkland Lake area, the to pick up north side of the Great Lakes going west on my cross continent trip. You could go north from Ottawa and do my route or area and then cross to Riviere du Loup going the reverse of me. Also, stick to north of NB for places like Acadien Historical Village. Look up Hartland Bridge and pick that up too. just keep on the prowl all beaut country. :B

RE: Passing through Timmins, ON, where can I fill water tanks?

Timmins is also big enough to have a Municipal Water Safety and Sanitation outfit. Check with town hall. :C

Beaumont Hammel

Every so often I'm asked to come up with a thread for this day. July 1 may be Canada Day to all of Canada, but more significantly in Newfoundland, it's Memorial Day. 100 years ago, July 1, 1916 The Newfoundland Regiment got named to start the Battle of the Somme at Beaumont Hammel. The attack was a devastating failure. In a single morning, almost 20,000 British troops died, and another 37,000 were wounded. The Newfoundland Regiment had been almost wiped out. When roll call was taken, only 68 men answered their names - 324 were killed, or missing and presumed dead, and 386 were wounded. This year there have been more programs on air to remind us of how significant that battle was to Newfoundland. A grandfather to several, an uncle to others, a cousin to still more. 100 years is just enough to mean many connections to that comparatively small population. A day to remember. Today, July 1 remains an official day of remembrance in Newfoundland and Labrador. Every year, people gather at the National War Memorial in downtown St. John's and at other locations across the province to remember the soldiers who fought at Beaumont Hamel, as well as the many other men and women who have served in other forces and other wars. http://www.heritage.nf.ca/first-world-war/articles/beaumont-hamel-en.php is a recent revision of this story. :C

RE: Canada road atlas

Nothing, but nothin' beats the provincial road maps. No commercially prepared atlas ever gives you the info of a provincial map. Granted you have to organize. .......as to how to get those maps prepared by said provincial governments, go to www.google.ca and search "name of province + tourism". Call or use online options. Me, I like to talk to said province then I can ask about my special interests. ;)

Given that I haven't a clue what your words mean, you'd best give us a picture, or link, or just plain spell the words out. & always make sure every single person will understand your subject line. :h

RE: Question about taking pets into Ontario

Going either way border guards can confiscate pet food. So, keep your ears to the ground for things like 'bird flu in....' If something like that is going on, they will ask for your dog food. I make sure to keep my dogs on a reputable dog food that you can find in just about every grocery or convenience store on either side of the border. I have been ask for that pet food. I have also had to pass over the paper work I have for my pets. Rarely, but it has happened. :C

RE: Weird question re: emergency procedures while driving

ro_sie, having been a widow since 1970 and had 3 travel jobs, I say you should go get a travel job. Then let DH do his own cooking. Maybe you should buy him a Dutch Oven, then he can become a specialty cook. Oh and yes, suggest he be the one to make the kitchen and the bedroom pretty. After all, with your travel job, you have 300 miles to drive today,'k! :W

RE: personal medications into and out of Canada

When I went to Australia, I got my pharmacist to give me a one page list of my prescription medications. They were carried in my day-pack or carry on luggage. That's all you need crossing any boundaries. :C

RE: Weird question re: emergency procedures while driving

Emergencies can happen at any time. My sister-in-law died yesterday. The doctors were going to this, the doctors were going to do that and suddenly in 15 minutes she was gone. Much better if you can share driving. I know couples where both are good drivers, but for some reason when both are in the vehicle, the husband thinks he should drive. Frankly, I think it would be best to try on a small open vehicle ----- small farm tractor, even lawn tractor, where the newbie can see what happens when shifting gears, using steering wheel, etc......... granted I started driving said farm tractor at age 8. Then, well, widowed in 1970, never met anyone I wanted to share the same roof with. I liked it when working that I traveled with co-workers and we shifted drivers. Can you get someone else to be with the non-driver for one slow time around a parking lot? & once that is done have said non-driver sit in seat of rv. Keep trying. :C
