RE: New Foundland

Trip is cancelled. I could not get ferry res. when needed and I now own a 26' GMC MH in addition to having a Roadtrek for sale. Having lived there for 24.5 years, I find it hard to believe that there wasn't some way around your dates. - Did you try changing for a different time of the day? - Did you try changing which port is the destination port in NL? - Or the call me if you have a cancellation....... Etc. Or should I say, I've found the "what options haven't I thought of", conveyed sufficient concern. :C

RE: CANADIAN DOG INOCULATIONS TO CROSS INTO USA

We travel back and forth to the US a lot including with our dog. We have never been asked about taking dog food into Canada. Chances are very strong that you will be asked this year.

RE: chicken and dairy products into Canada

Re. Pet Food: What you do is call grocery stores on your route, just inside the border or one night's stop inside Canada and find out if they carry what you use. I can say that I see Iams in the area where I live, but I don't use it so I will not have paid attention to how common a product it is. The type of dog food I use is very common. Thus, I won't mind if it gets taken. On my trip near the border this year I'll carry small amounts and won't quibble if they confiscate it. Keep original container from the store. :C

RE: Latest on Poultry Ban into Canada

This was updated yesterday, May 11th; http://www.inspection.gc.ca/animals/terrestrial-animals/imports/travellers/restriction-on-imports/eng/1421341696172/1421341727507 ... Eric I'm glad you posted this information, we're headed up to Alaska via BC and the Yukon. I find the Canadian border website very difficult to navigate in trying to find such information. When you search are you including 'domain', ie. ".ca" in your search site. Or are you going to www.google.ca or www.yahoo.ca? :C

RE: Latest on Poultry Ban into Canada

Well, I had heard about bird flu in Canada. All of this means expect to be questioned about pet food and have it confiscated, since poultry is often the protein in pet food. Carry a brand you can replace in any small town. Or if a prescription diet, a copy of the prescription. :C

RE: CANADIAN DOG INOCULATIONS TO CROSS INTO USA

One of the best sources for all of your questions is your vet. It's not just what customs may require, but what might happen where you are going. -Most US locations will mean treatment for lime disease. My home territory requires that now too. -Heart disease pill for other locations. I always ask and try to get it all done within 30 days of my travel start date. Re. the border vets I had in Newfoundland all said get a health certificate. Vets I have had on this side of The Gulf also say get a health certificate. & what difference does that make to you anyway. You're making a routine annual check up trip to the vet, eh!! Plus, remember to make sure the pet food can be bought on both sides of the border. Either set of border guards can confiscate your pet food, should they be told to enforce that particular regulation. There has been bird flu this year (our country). & that just about guarantees somebody will have to turn over their pet food. :C

RE: Question for Canadian seniors

I think the 3 Maritime provinces are configured, ie, geographically set up to provide more at home care direct level than other provinces. We lack those long stretches of eensy popupulations going north. ON can't do for Toronto what it is prohibitive to do for Moose River. Or likewise, BC for Vancouver is too thin on the ground for near, but not in Prince Rupert. Thus, look to your pocket book. I think what we all have to expect to come down the pike is drug coverage complete. Quite a few countries do that for all now. :C

RE: Question for Canadian seniors

I am reading this question to be about all insurance, especially, if you can stay in your home as opposed to being in a seniors residence. At 72 I have many reasons to be paying close attention to the issue. This will vary province to province. Health care may be national, but it is really delivered by the provinces. Frankly, I'd rather not go to a seniors home! Got that.... ever. It is well known that the actual $ are less for a person in their own home. & the chat of politicians and health care managers, academics, etc. is getting closer to that goal----for all that much depends upon the individuals needs. ----------- In about 4 to 6 weeks I will need temporary operation recovery home care. Then I also have plans to travel. I know driving myself is pretty much this year, next year and the year after. After that I'll be 75. & insurance rates sky rocket, I'm told. & travel insurance outside of Canada gets higher faster. I'd say scout around. I don't know at what point it's a good idea to consider moving provinces, be check what provinces say. I moved when I retired. Why? well, that reason for much of outmigration from Newfoundland - the cost of getting to and from there, i.e., not health. But that move may prove to have health benefits. Or the population density in relation to delivering home care may be very important to what a province is willing to do. :C

RE: Going to Canada and returning to U.S. with dogs

This year is one of those years when you need to be extra careful about pet food. Buy a brand that you can buy on both sides of the border. You see, there is bird flu around. & poultry is often used as protein in pet food. Thus, if the border stations are likely to be told to implement the 'confiscate' regulation, that's when bird flu is around. If your pet is on a prescription diet, carry the documentation from your vet. :C

RE: New Foundland

If you're going to visit you need to spell it right ;) One word. Newfoundland. Definitely, more later. Blasted software took out 10 minutes of keying. Lived there 24.5 years. You're retired, right. So, arrive there in May, head for the iceberg alley, if it's a good iceberg year like 2007 AND 2015. Leave after Labour Day. Yeah sure you can take in some other places en route. & if you think I'm kidding, pm RobandDi, who have spent several summers on Newfoundland. :B

RE: Get Real AdBloc Plus back

But tell me the steps to take to HAVE real AdBloc plus. I've got an awful mess. I go to ad ons and try to follow common sense and no luck. Please. :C

RE: Get Real AdBloc Plus back

AdBloc plus is there under tools and has that option listed. It was 'ticked'. I've just tried 'unticking it' and the # of ads is worse not better. :C

RE: Remdies for Bugs & Bears

Not true. Wait till they land on your shoulders, then reach inside the shirt and bend the stingers, than flap your hands at them and you go airborne. Been to the top of the mountain with this method, but had to walk down. Big ones, eh? Ya mean Texan skeeters? Not Fort McMurray Skeeters? :p

RE: Portland to Nova Scotia ferry

Forgot to say the trip is 10 hours. What a difference calling and just looking up what one could find, ie. between figures I was given and those JackD got. Sure cabin cost is part of it, but not all. & I understood "pax" to mean passengers, ie. 2 passengers or another $94.00. Party I talked to understood those who wanted information are from the USA. :C

RE: Portland to Nova Scotia ferry

OK, step by step http://novastarcruises.com/ 2015 Fares I called them. 866-864-6295 That takes you to Nova Scotia office. Daily night sailing from Portland in summer at 8:00 pm. Cabin or assigned seat required. Fare 1 way $772, which includes 2 adult passengers, trailer and towing vehicle @ 55 feet. Morning sailing from Yarmouth 9:30 am. Atlantic Daylight Time, rig as above, 2 adult passengers with cabin. Cabin not required. $642. They ask you for your license #, which with trailer would be trailer. & passport numbers. They have to have those. Of course, I told the person on the line that I was inquiring for someone else and that the site should let a person scout out costs without having to give specifics. Round trip fare is less than pricing one way fares and adding them together. OK - what you see determines which way to drive. You may want to ask a specific post for members suggestions on what to see. Maine-New Brunswick dovetailed sights - Grand Manan Island, Deer Island - Coastal New Brunswick drive or inland drive different things. - city of Saint John - Fundy tidal sights Then lots of places to see in Nova Scotia, PEI and Newfoundland. I've got to run. But if you ask, of course I have suggestions. :C
