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: Sam was out maneuvered or out gunned

I've been wondering if that pair have accepted each other as the staff of "Sheep Care, Inc." yet. :C

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

RE: Sam was out maneuvered or out gunned

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

RE: Reseasoning a Dutch oven

Ok, here we go again. The seasoning on a Dutch oven is OIL! Do not use soap on a seasoned oven. However, if you want to make sure about how well seasoned an oven is, re. season it. You know, very thin coat of oil, plant oil like olive oil or safflower oil...., lightly gone over with a light rag to make sure it's a thin coat. Put in oven for 2 hours at high temperature, I use 410'F. Turn oven off and leave oven there until cool. Then on to step 2. Do that 3 times. and it will be well and truly seasoned. Enjoy. Post some photos of your cookings, s.v.p. :C

RE: True Statement

I have Chesapeake Bay retrievers. Most of my dogs have had a lightly wavy smoothish coat. But finally, I have one with a almost poodle thick curl coat. Given that I love to put my own paws into dog fur coats, you know that's a dream come too. When they've been out in the rain, I find they dry pretty fast in the house. But if we are on the road, we do about 10 minutes of retrieving fun to help get the wet out, especially, if we've put the wet in via swimming. :p

RE: Provincial parks payments

Bravo Orion. Would that such would go visit Europe, or say the parts of the UK where the exit Brexit croud hangs out. I hear tell you may not get stopped at country borders in Europe, but you have to have ALL of your papers in order. Bravo again Orion. :C

RE: Provincial parks payments

Excuse me, but on which side of the border did you stop at a bank? & for what it is worth, the only country where I felt treated like an unrecognizable alien from Pluto was in the US.* The Canadian side always has treated my 'foreign exchange transactions' as a regular happening. :C * off the top I've done currency exchanges (one country to another) in UK, France, Denmark (pre Euro), Israel (and maybe Lebanon), Australia, US.

RE: Provincial parks payments

Common sense, not to mention a basic idea of decency or courtesy is to use the currency of the country where you are. Banks are the essential basic place to do money business, though some border crossing sites have such services, as do some stores. But heck, that's why banks are there. Certainly in Canada, they are the least costly. Why, well any one bank operates over a large territory. In the US banks used to be a 'this town ownly' set up. Betcha it still costs less to change your money when in Canada. :C

Border Crossing Special Watch

I just heard on CBC that Canada is going to make a special effort to insure that all guns crossing the border do so with full compliance with all laws and regulations. The news item said that 7 guns had been picked up very recently, my memory knows I've forgotten the specific phrase, i.e. "today" or "this week". But I think they were in more western parts of the country. checking the CBC online sections. :C

RE: White bread!

When I used to make bread, I always knew it was mine because of the kinds of oil I'd use. But it's so long that I'm not sure. I think I was more into safflower oil, almond oil, walnut oil than into olive oil in those days. Also, I have always used milk for the liquid and egg. This is bread machine bread mind you. However, I never follow the God forsaken bread machine recipes re. salt. There is no @($#!@(#$(!($*!($#* earthly sense to all that salt. WE DO NOT NEED it. It's bad for us. To heck with worrying about super even rises. Taste and health matter much more. Experiment with different ingredients and find what tastes like Steve's bread. OK? :B

RE: Anyone had to use OHIP in another province?

In most provinces your card is accepted and the province where you made claim gets the $ back from your home province. If you were to move that would apply to all medical treatment that you received in your 1st 3 months, then your new health card for your new province of residence would cover you. I've read many a time that there is an almost, but not quite 6 months option on health coverage if you go out of Canada. :C

RE: NS on the 22 of Aug, Reservations?

Best $ to/from PEI are ferry to and bridge from. You pay when you leave. Bridge costs less. Check fuel prices all 3 Maritime provinces. All are regulated. If it's a week when PEI is less, it will pay you to tank up. Likewise in NB or NS. I'm not going to guess reservations. Figures on visitors from US are high because of exchange rate and maybe our dry summer. Forest fires in NS appear to be solved. :B

RE: Hwy #4 on Cape Breton, any good

Hold on, last wk. there were problems on PEI ferry, it seems that one is out of service, and limiting RV's nd letting cars on, had to re rout trip. call before, check out. Daughter was held off for two trips, and told they weren't sure of the 11:00 PM crossing. Yes, there is only one ferry running PEI to NS, but you paint it worse than I hear it is. Some loads they put in a mezzanine, favouring the car traffic. Other loads, especially those at night have the ferry with the usual height allocations. The late night runs are set up to get the industrial traffic through. And, of course, a lot of motorhomes are the same height as the semi-trailers. But call is definitely a good idea. http://www.ferries.ca/ns-pei-ferry/ :C
