RE: dump stations/taking on water in Gaspe', PEI during OCTOBER

I don't know of any commercial dump stations on PEI. That time of year there will not be any campgrounds open. The vast majority shut down by the end of September. All are closed after Thanksgiving (Oct 13). You better come with your waste tanks empty and perhaps your water tank full. I still say, ask and you will find a place that says yes. & that for me includes experience on PEI in the off season. If you check my photo album you will find shots of MacPhail and Orwell backside from November. :B

RE: Beer, Beef, Dairy, Fruits and Vegetables

I have to ask WHY? Your implication is that Canada is a 3rd world country. While in many cases our beef is even better than what you find in your superstores. But yes, you can load yourself down with extra weight and lack of freshness. Keep things in store container. No root vegetables, no citrus fruits. These can pick up insects. Of course, there are limitations on all alcoholic products. & isn't travel for discovering new or what you don't know???? :C

RE: dump stations/taking on water in Gaspe', PEI during OCTOBER

You may find cgs open if people are using rvs as a way to take a job away from normal home range. I found that to be the case in October, 2004. Fredericton was the city where such occurred. But one of the best places to check is the municipality. Say you want to dump off season and the "information" place with such is closed, check with the water/water safety plant. Chances are they have a place for secure/healthy dumping. There are boondocking places around and about outside of towns. :C

RE: Labrador Newfoundland

There are more municipalities than you think. Although the road does go inland, there are settlements, villages/towns along the coast. There are lots of useful links at this page: http://www.roads.gov.nl.ca/cameras/ Then we have the NL Municipal Directory: http://miga.gov.nl.ca/municipal_directory/index.html & a map: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bOTP6juxxxE/UkDGFFN7o-I/AAAAAAAABZQ/2dcAKvOIKdk/s1600/labrador+csd+map+-+labelled.png :B

RE: Trip to Quebec - french translation things

If you pick up a phrase book, also ask for a CD with pronunciation of key words. Every little bit shows interest in the place you are visiting. :B

RE: Labrador Newfoundland

The route from Baie Comeau is 389. In my photo album (see signature) you will see pics from Manic II as well as Manic V, as well as Churchill Falls generating station. I too found the tours quite worth while. :B

I have a former co-worker heading home to Mud Lake, near Happy Valley, tomorrow. She promises to send me pictures. :C

RE: Banned items for border crossing into Canada

IMHO Calais, St Stephen is a better place to cross. Good places to visit along the coast of New Brunswick or nearby. You miss these if you just enter via Houlton. I expect Calais would have places for storage. Check out town offices for suggestions. :C

RE: Beans: to salt or not to salt?

I would answer that question in terms of health. Greene & Hertzberg, Putting Food By, orginal ed. had USDA contribution. Hopping, Stocking Up. Both may be purchase via Amazon's used book link www.abebooks.com or direct via a new book source. They are well used. I'd trust what they say long before Rombauer, Bekker, Rombauer any day of the week I have all editions of all 3 titles.\ Health considerations; high blood pressure, heart, any chronic health conditions involving kidneys. & this is why our governments are having concerns with those who sell 'produced foods'. :C

Glad to help, but still not sure why this thread is under "Canada". Maybe we need a "Locations" forum similar to "Snowbirds" for "Summer Escapes"! Yeah I was tempted to move this thread somewhere else but not sure where! :E We really don't get enough discussions like this to warrant a new forum at this time. ... Eric ( Moderator) Eric, me son, did you work Expo 67 in Montreal, when...... & sure as shootin' you met Texans or fellow countrymen/countrywomen who were pulling a snowmobile and asked: "How far do we have to drive to get to the snow?" Anyone want to bet me there are American residents believing that parts of Canada never warm up? While, they are sure Alaska has a midnight sun? I wasn't in Montreal until 1969, so I sure heard about the snowmobile toaders. :R

RE: Crossing US Canada and back conflicting info on dogs

To the thread starter: Stop and think, common sense. & yes, I have read it on a Canadian page: your pet is to be in good health. Would you expect anything else? & yes, I have moved in the last few years. & vets in both places recommended a health certificate. Again, common sense. Why in the dickens do you or anyone else think that is a conflict? :C

RE: US/Can entry and exit passport scanning plan

While this make some practical sense the idea of international governments tracking and sharing this info is creepy and scary.Can we trust government bureaucrats and government employees to be sharp enough about data security and privacy?As long as health care record-keeping remains on paper and telephone, we're safe. But that can't last. You can't believe your health care record is only on paper. Paper and computer, me son, fer sure. Point 2. Come on, I only saw one person mention scaning a vehicle license. They're all scanned. Think to when you were asked to stop at red light, then move forward on the green. What I don't know yet is if they have my new vehicle license # as soon as I do a trade. I'd like to ask Mr. Snowdon about that. I travel overseas once and my bank gives me a 'world' credit card. Looks like you'll be going again, that says. ;)

Look what Forum you are posting in. Go to northern Canada, the Maritimes, or Alaska. This year The Maritimes, is as hot as all get out. You have to go to Newfoundland or Labrador, ie. that which makes it Atlantic Canada for comfortable sea breezes. Though, I'm heading for Quebec tomorrow and their forecasts are just a bit cooler. :C

RE: Route Info

Always found route 9 in Maine, rather boring. Depends if all you want to do is make miles, or whether you want to see some of character of the country as you go. Why travel if you don't look and absorb. & for my time Grand Manan, Campobello Island, Deer Island, Machais, ie, the coastal road is much more interesting. ;)

RE: Newbies from across The Pond

Best places to buy foods: 1. roadside stands with veggies 2. farmer's markets for all kinds of food 3. when dining out, a trully local place, like chains are always chains and bound by the policies of the company. A locally owned place will be best for what are dishes true to that area. :C

RE: Your favorite recipe using hard-boiled eggs?

Add a diced hardcooked egg to any salad and you have a winner. :B

RE: dupes

Something else up with which we need to put, or is this fixable? My thought also. This has been occurring for a while now with no resolution. Is this going to permanently "broken" like the internal spell check? Come on Good Sam Enterprises, you are a major organization,with lots of resources, act like it and fix this Betcha your browser has a good spell check. If not google spellings are timely, especially for this year's words, ie, selfie. On that, Open Roads Forum has no need to duplicate. :C

RE: Headed to the Canada!

Yep, we were in Canada for a month. We are returning again tomorrow for another three weeks. We decided to leave the rv in Ottawa with friends and fly to Nova Scotia. I know we will miss a lot in between but we will save a couple thousand miles and $1000 in fuel even after buying the air tickets. We will cut way back on alcohol and eating out. As stated, food, liquor and fuel are very expensive especially when one is coming from Mexico. It is a beautiful country and well worth the trip. We will be back in years to come but probably fly and stay. Disagree big time. If you don't drive it, you don't see it. Cities may have strong similarities, but the countryside doesn't . & you gain tremendously, if you drive different types of roads. Learning to pick up local produce you pick up local culture, big time. I've lived in sections of Quebec, Nova Scotia, PEI, Newfoundland and traveled much in New Brunswick. To fly is to omit, big time. There are sections of all of these provinces I'm itching to see also. :C

RE: dupes

If something seems to go through, but doesn't show your post, highlight, copy, put copy in word processing page. Then go back, preferably with a right click in the upper left hand corner arrow, then click on where you want to go. If your post is in the thread fine. If no, you can click reply again and paste in the words you copied. :C

RE: Headed to the Canada!

Yep, part of travel is to try new things. I make it a practice to dine out at least 1 day a week and switch doing so for supper and for lunch. I try to go where things local are the menu vs. going to chain sites. Re. what you will be asked to throw out: yep, see stickies. But some principals: that which will keep or attract insects, ie. root vegetables, citrus fruit. & yes roadside stands & or farmers' markets beat all chain groceries by the mile for freshness, taste and selection. NO firewood for the same reason. Pet food in original containers. & times may happen when you will not be allowed to bring that too. Best to have your pets on a brand you can buy in most stores. If need be, call stores in town where you will cross. :C
