RE: Newfoundland

What kind of things do you like to do? National Park campgrounds: Gros Morne, Terra Nova. Theatre in Cow Head with park cg there too. World Heritage Site at L'Anse aux Meadows plan on day at Norsted Viking Village too. Keep in mind that I lived in NL for 24.5 years. Check at www.google.ca for Codroy Valley, Burgeo area, islands with canoeing and cg. Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanactuary, city of St. John's many interesting places; Trinity Pageant ..................... Of course, get your visitors guide Search term to use for each province you'll travel through = 'name of province + tourism'. Take the short ferry drive both ways and see different things going each way. :B

RE: North Bay, Ontario

Your welcome, but I'd make sure to get the visitors guides and read up on stuff that interests you. Actually, lots of times I call and I mention what I'd like to do. Usually, these places have an extra pamphlet on my interests. :C

RE: North Bay, Ontario

Granted I haven't been through that area since 2004, but back in the 70s I worked from Sudbury to well north of Wawa (130 mi. n. of The Soo) Driving was a fringe benefit with all the interesting terrain. Great area for stuff to see. Lakes, fishing, mines, Great expansion of population after World War II. Agree more scenic going eastern way near Ottawa, Algonquin P. Park. Sault Ste. Marie area has some classic tourist sites, canal, locks, rail road trip (especially good in early fall) and other roads both north and south of the Trans Canada Highway. Espanola WWar II museum. Manitoulin Island, St. Joseph Island, etc. Check on current regulations re. use of crown land. Linger and enjoy. :B

RE: Prime Rib and ???

If Little Kopit gave his whereabouts, I would be there for Christmas dinner. I would like a little rum sauce on the bread pudding. I happened to be on PEI for the celebration of the 150 birthday of Sir Andrew MacPhail, Canadian doctor, agriculturalist and literary figure in November. 3 evenings of events. http://www.macphailhomestead.ca/ PEI also does a Fall Flavours thing. Best to google www.google.ca that. Early fall. They connect with diverse chefs, lots of sites around the island. Prices vary if I remember correctly. :B

RE: Prime Rib and ???

I had a lovely meal prepared by a Scots chef recently. Of course, it was to honour a person of Scots origin. Roast Beef Yorkshire Pudding, individual portions. Roast vegetables - like large chunks of carrots, parsnips, green and yellow beans, roma beans, could be scarlet runner beans in the pod too. Potato Scrump delicious gravy to go with all of Scots flavour ===================== Started with cream soup or bisque with a baked item in the shape of a star sitting on top. Finished with bread pudding (with raisins) Then with light cookies. Ordinary ingredients done in a different way. :B You could do turnips instead of potatoes. Yorkshire Pudding has plenty of carbohydrates to take place of potatoes.

RE: RV.net apparal

Since they're using the old Affinity logo for RV.NET, I'm not sure if they have authority now to sell forum related merchandise with GS. Ok, not that I'm blind, but someone is slack. What is the new logo and where is it posted? I come in usually via the Woodalls Portal. :C

I have a place in bookmarks: http://www.sportsindiana.com/rvnet/RVNet_Wearables.html I ordered from there more than 6 years ago. You might give them a call and post again. :B

RE: When you cross the border now with pets.

I apologize for introducing the phrase 'big time'. Culturally, a phrase with many meanings. I should know better. Each border crossing is one transaction. If each country is going to keep problems out of their own country, they have to question the incoming traffic one vehicle by one vehicle. 80,000 damaged items means big by comparison. Just as on Sept 11, a few planes, under 10, made a big difference by what they did. I can readily understand either border wanting to restrict entry of items containing the category of those which were diseased, ie. any pet food containing poultry. Now, the reality check that 'made in the USA' is considered acceptable for entry into that country. There is a minor detail not covered by that regulation. In the time of the phoney ingredient from China, which was actually a very dangerous plastic, some of it got into USA made pet food. I never picked up any cases of pet food made in Canada contained said plastic. Like, I said, 'minor detail'. Reality is if your going into the USA, those cases don't mean a thing. Still, I've always been glad I had my dogs on a made in Canada dog food at that time. :C

RE: When you cross the border now with pets.

Because cases of avian flu in the past have meant questions from border guards re. pet food. I probably assumed that all rving pet owners know that pet food can be confiscated going either way. They contents of any food parcel will only name source of protein, not where it came from. Thus, there is a chance it could have come from the affected poultry farms. I've learned that when avian flu hits the news media it's an alert signal for me as a dog owner. :C

When you cross the border now with pets.

There is bird flu big time in British Columbia. Poultry is a frequent source of protein in pet food. Thus, right now and probably the next few months you can bet heavily on being asked about pet food when you cross the border. My solution has always been to get my dogs on a type of food I can buy in just about any store on either side of the border. The story is covered: http://www.ctvnews.ca/health/b-c-poultry-cull-begins-80-000-to-be-euthanized-to-stop-avian-flu-1.2135514. I picked it up on morning radio. :C

RE: Average Speed

I'll support those who say that your average speed over a longer trip will be less than when doing a short trip. An example from Newfoundland. People from Corner Brook take 8 hours to drive to St. John's, Newfoundland at legal speeds. Likewise to drive to Port aux Basques at legal speeds from Corner Brook should take you 2 1/2 to 2 hours 45 minutes. Yet the people who live in Port aux Basques plan on spending 12 hours to drive from there to St. John's. Or, they wisely plan on some longer stops on that longer trip. If you've got pets, you will need to include things they enjoy and need in your stops. :C

RE: Spaghetti eating contest

I think I have two inhalers. Yes, retrievers, but Chessies. The 9 month old probably takes deeper breaths. ;)

RE: Grant & Lee Update - Starting a Sheepdog

Thanks for that video Mark. Very much enjoyed it, but I think Lee enjoyed himself more than I did. :B

Dropbox, Pros and Cons

Ok, let's hear about experience of Dropbox. I have read where lots of passwords were hacked from users of Dropbox. How do you use this software? Does it save you time? ......................... :C

RE: West Coast/Canada Trip

Canadian provinces have a Dept. of Tourism, which provides information for visitors including print guides. Contact each province for this guide. To do so www.google.ca and use search term "name of province & tourism". Visitors centers are run by the provinces. Municipalities may also run webpages helpful to tourists, but the larger tourist center is provincial. I post this information because I have visited Australia. I was acutely disappointed to find that Aussie states aren't tuned in on the value of encouraging tourist $ via the visitors guide. It took me quite a bit of my 3 months visit to learn how to find the municipal offices with info both on where to camp and places I'd enjoy. Or, Camps Australia Wide only gives so much. :C

RE: Trans Canada trip: Nova Scotia to Calgary

Be aware...Saskatchewan has NO rest areas for RV's. Only cars are allowed and they have big yellow posts close together to make sure. Use truck stops if you need a break Would a truck camper fit? :C

RE: Trans Canada trip: Nova Scotia to Calgary

You don't have to return the same way that you go. Except for right north of Lake Superior that is. In Quebec you can go up around Lake Saguenay and across to Kirkland Lake and Timmins, etc. & after Lake Superior there are several more northern ways through the Prairie provinces. :B
