RE: Canadian RVing for newbies

Maine, Campobello Island via Lubec International Bridge NB Via ferry Grand Manan Island Tidal Bore - NB and NS Fundy national park St. John's City Market NS think it is Five Islands cg. Interesting Museum in Yarmouth Citadel in Halifax - very good on NS and CA history Historic Properties in Halifax Farmer's Daughter, Whycocomagh, NS google this rather different type of store and history + cg nearby I really like ****Fortress Louisbourg, Cape Breton. reconstructed, staff in period clothes. google for more. Meat Cove, northern Cape Breton. IMHO Cabot trail is nice scenery, but I liked it so little I only went once PEI Take Ferry to and Bridge from. Pay once on leaving Charletown, for history Charletown Farmer's Market go with empty fridge and empty tummy, crafts also Orwell Corner Historic village and neighbor Sir Andrew MacPhail Homestead & if you can find 2 weeks Newfoundland Gros Morne National Park, both north and south of Bonne Bay L'Anse aux Meadows historic village. World Historic Site and neighboring tourist construction of more Viking related at Ingstead St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary walk included, but very unusual St. John's is quite historic :C

RE: Trans Canada Hwy

Provincial maps are more up to date and have more local information. Why, well you see, each province manages its roads. Online maps are more apt to be out of date in varied sections of the large territory the cover. :C

RE: Would like an explanation please.

I still think places and events to visit are very much a part of rving. Services for veterans in memorial of our histories are events for rving. Moderators, please remember that. :C

RE: Trans Canada Hwy

Yep, every province and territory has a set of visitors guides and provincial maps. Go gohttps://www.google.ca/, yes .ca because you're searching Canada. Search term = provincial name & tourism. Enjoy :B

RE: Canadian RVing for newbies

Re. diesel fuel. Hey, what in the world do you think fuels most transport trucks?????? Diesel is easy to find on and near the highways, natch! Where you would have problems would be in cities, just because of many streets. Fuel prices are regulated in Atlantic Canada. :C

RE: Would like an explanation please.

I think it should have been left. General section is a good place for suggesting things to do on a trip. Attending Remembrance Services is a good event to attend. Yes, Canadians call November 11 Remembrance Day. When I lived in Newfoundland, I used to get ask to make a post on June 30/July 1 about the Newfoundland Regiment in Beaumont Hamel in WWI. There was never any question about it fitting in "RVing in Canada and Alaska" section. Of the 801 soldiers who attacked, more than 700 were killed. Services are in quite a number of locations. I would certainly hope that from now on, moderators will think more carefully before moving. :C

RE: Canadian RVing for newbies

Acheter un dictionnaire francais. Pocket sized. The more you show interest, the more help you will receive. When I drove across Labrador and down a dirt road to Baie Comeau and searched for a hose to wash the mud off and was taking weekly French classes, I spoke what I knew. I got sent for a place that does special washes. The gal who did my truck camper was extremely thorough. It became very clear to me that I was doing very well for myself, that I was being thanked for the effort. So, when a Francophone area be sure to ask questions in almost every place. That's showing an interest. Of course, you start at the visitor's center, in the grocery store, interest could be as simple as saying: "It's really beautiful here, we've been to........ What are your favourite places?" Now, take the ferry to PEI and Confederation Bridge from. You pay when you leave. The Bridge costs less. It's also a spot to tour. Make sure you google "name of province tourism" for every province you are going to. & ask for a provincial map. Provincial maps have reference to things people who live there know. Some of the most interesting roads are the old ones, ones with twists and turns. Yes, there are buildings around from the 17th and 18th centuries. The less of an overhang to any edge of a roof, the older the building. Yes, I and anyone who has lived in these parts can make suggestions of places to see. So, ask if you want that. :B

RE: Contacting owner of lost wallet. What is best way.

Alternate business, bank if credit cards are included. Most major credit card will indicate which bank. This is very true for Canada and I think more true in the USA than it used to be, when most banks were strictly local. Now, I walked some place about 20 years ago with a purse, not snapped firmly to lock it. I carried 3 containers with cards: 1) little card case with car insurance, drivers license to carry when hiking, 2) credit card case with social insurance card and all major cards (Mastercharge, Airmiles was not yet started), 3) wallet carry cash, yes that era, photos of special people, name and address, receipts for special things ie, today would be computer. The credit card case came out. My employment was head of a site serving the public. My financial signature always has been different from my work signature. The person who found the credit card wallet called my bank and checked with them, then he called my place of work. He made sure he had the right person before he told me he had my credit card wallet. I'm now retired and have had a hip replacement operation. I have one card case which acts as an everything wallet and which I carry in my pocket. As said before. As soon as you use an item in your wallet, put it back in your pocket. :C

RE: Dumping in Nova Scotia in winter

We are new to the province and we want to use our RV in winter in Nova Scotia for fulltime living. It is absolutely winterized. So it is not an issue if it works technically. Lotsa luck with that - "Down East" has some of the absolute WORST winter weather here in Canada. :E My dear fellow Canuck. You think NS has bad weather, why don't you go to Sudbury and North. Maybe Labrador, occasionally Corner Brook (having lived and worked from Sudbury to Hornepayne for 5 years and the Corner Brook area for 24.5 years). Those winters are far more "interesting" than NS or PEI or southern NB. Northern NB is more like QCity. So, go find out what winter really IS!!! Oh yes, one winter St. Anthony, NL had a Friday afternoon snowstorm. They took the snowblowers up on the roofs to START cleaning up. & brought the kids home from school via snowmobiles on MONDAY. Write St. Anthony for photos. :P

RE: Overnight Visitor

I've been ROFLMAO on this thread. Think, hey no one has suggested members of this forum follow a criminal behaviour. Still, that does happen. There is a school board in AB wanting to teach criminal behaviour. Natch the prov. gov. is saying NOT NO WAY. So, we're just laughable. :p

RE: Dumping in Nova Scotia in winter

Municipal water works may allow you to dump and replenish the water supply. Will you have access to shore power? YES, municipal water facility. I have gone out in The Maritimes in the winter and that is where I went. I have lived in Nova Scotia. Yes, places near the south shore are warmer than inland. i.e, if you go to the north shore I'm not going to promise anything. Another thing you can do is check online for municipal websites, especially places where you want to go. Ask them what winter conditions are likely. And at Environment Canada site: https://weather.gc.ca/canada_e.html check for ice conditions in The Gulf of St. Lawrence. :B

RE: Veggies in sealed mason jars

Herzberg, Ruth. Putting Food By. 2010 Includes reference materials from US Dept of Agriculture. Go to www.abebooks.com enter author and title. This is a branch of Amazon, world wide. You will learn the whys and wherefores of food preservation. ie. Lettuce is a low acid green. Preservatives used in stores aren't particularly safe for long term storage. :C

RE: Fantasy RV Tours Canadian Maritme first timer

Once upon a time I worked out of Sudbury, ON. I also owned land near Lubec, ME. Thus, I went via the northern route, ie. 17 to the border with QC. Then through Montreal, over to the south shore, via a through way to Rimouski, then over to NB across that province to N. Sydney and the ferry to NL. The route can be entirely via the TransCanada Highway http://www.thekingshighway.ca/PHOTOS/hwy17-169_lg.jpg Newfoundlanders call it the TCH. As I said before get visitors guides for the provinces you will pass through. All of these provinces are rich in scenery, events and people. As Near to Heaven by Sea: A History Of Newfoundland And Labrador by Kevin Major. Kevin Major is an award winning author. This book was written by request of the publisher. Again go to www.abebooks.com to pick it up at a good price. :)

RE: Planning a Newfoundland trip.

When you call the provincial tourism offices, tell them of your special interests. St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary should be top of your list. There are also boat trips for things like bird islands, whale watching, and trips up fjords of Western Brook Pond and Trout River Ponds. Summer theatre has plays on local history at Cow Head. Theatre Newfoundland and Labrador, Gros Morne, Cow Head Look for Festivals. :C

RE: Planning a Newfoundland trip.

I lived in Newfoundland for 24.5 years and left in mid 2008. There is boondocking year round in places off the road. There are some year round cgs, including some in Federal Parks. You can access each and every province via Canadian google, i.e. https://www.google.ca/ Enter as search term: 'name of province tourism'. All have visitors guides. & given my cross country trip in 2015 all have provincial maps, which give you more information than the commercial gas station ones. So, you are passing through or by the following provinces to get to the province of Newfoundland and Labrador: New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and maybe Quebec if you take in Labrador. Weather via Environment CanadaTo find out if is a good or a bad year keep watch via google on the word, 'ice'. Gulf of St. Lawrence and Strait of Belle Isle are useful areas to check. As is the Marine Atlantic Ferry. Check that periodically over the winter http://www.marineatlantic.ca/en/ Once a week would be lots more reliable than once a month. You're looking to find out if the ferry runs are cancelled much over the winter. This can be a very good indication of slow melt and lots of ice. In my time the bad weather comes down from Iceland rather than central Canada (& dominant wind pattern is from west to east), thus, weather from the opposite way is opposite the norm. Iceberg Finder http://www.icebergfinder.com/ opens in late April or early May. :B

RE: error 520

Yeah, the forum has a mind of its own!!! Best thing was getting a pm from someone in the middle of it all. I had to confirm log in to read that, which was great because other 'previously non-working link' accepted that log in. I just kept click next visible link and getting one more step closer and again one step closer, to finally reach being able to be normal. Then held off. Now, all is back to normal. :B
