RE: 1st long trip,Colo. to New England to Nova Scotia and back.

OK, if you want to know about Canada, go to Canada. 1. www.google.ca means searching in Canadian sites. Search "name of province & tourism". Do at least Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. Ferry from Maine will stop in very early October. You will have to go through New Brunswick. 2. Go to section of this forum, called RVing in Canada and Alaska. Browse for threads on these 2 provinces. Search all stickies for relevant border crossing information. 3. Check with local sources in person for camp grounds that may be open to serve folks living in an rv and working in that city. Atlantic Canada (NS, NB, PEI, & NL) have a long fall. Yes, there may be some frost, but days can be quite nice.\ The Fortress at Louisbourg in Cape Breton Island is an unusual reconstruction for Canada and well work checking for opening times in the fall. :B

RE: Redirected to advertising when clicking a topic.

If you use the browser Firefox, you can add the option AD Bloc+. Then, if you go to the forum via Woodalls, you will find a variation on the format of quite a few pages. I happen to like going into Open Roads Forum via Woodalls portal these days. FWIW, just google Woodalls and pick the forum option. :C

RE: Nova Scotia, PEI and New Brunswick in late Sept, Early Oct.

Camp grounds close to towns, where folks might use their rv as a home for a job, could be open, i.e. Fredericton, Saint John, Charlottetown, Halifax, etc. There are also ways to boondock for a night or so. Again, as said, lots of little things open, fall foliage is great. Some seasonal restaurants stay open through the first weekend of October. Puppy will enjoy anyway. BTW likely more will be open on PEI this year. It's 150 years since the first Confederation Conference in Charlottetown , that was the start for getting Canada together. Some special things continue through the fall, not sure how many. :B

RE: New Canadian currency melts?

The toonie is also known as the Queen with a bear behind. While Queen Elizabeth is on the front there is a bear on the backside. Never heard of it. I'm Canadian. X2

RE: taking cats into canada

There are regulations on file that permit customs on either side to take, ie confiscate pet food. What can trigger that is events in either or both countries, such a bird flu. In which case, your pet food might include poultry as a source of protein. I travel with pet food I can buy in either country. If I had a pet with a special diet, I would always carry a signed copy of my vets prescription for such special diet. :C ps. there are stickies in the section of this forum called RVing in Canada and Alaska that cover lots of border crossing info.

RE: crossing the borders (food & fuel)

Just a thought. Coming from the UK you are likely used to prices determined by a high density population. Checking google, US has 317 million people as of 2014. Canada has a population of 35 million. Of course it makes a difference in prices. Gasoline to drive on so many roads, for one. But as has been said, food prices are close, especially when you think of freshness. Enjoy :C

RE: Labrador

Report from friend who was just up as far as Happy Valley - Goose Bay. "They are working on the road between Red Bay and Port Hope Simpson. taking our the rock cuts and going around and making it a bit wider. Lots of heavy traffic on the road at times. " :C

RE: Labrador

I got a reply to my query to Transportation and Works re. routes 500 and 510, specifically: "What parts of these two routes have pavement? Are connecting roads paved. Please advise." Reply: "In response to your email requesting road surface condition; Ø Route 500 (Boarder in Labrador West to Goose Bay) is 546 km, of which 486 is paved and 60 km is a well graded gravel surface. Ø Route 510 (Goose Bay to L’anse au Clair) is 606 km, of which 80 km is paved and 526 is a well graded gravel surface. All of the connecting / access roads have a well graded gravel surface. As an added note, the gravel road within Labrador is well maintained, wet weather and gravel roads generally don’t provide the ideal driving conditions." :B

RE: Labrador

You could also try towns, as found via google.ca, http://www.happyvalley-goosebay.com/ . Ask them a couple of questions, one of which would be roads going to and from that town and nearby road repairs. Dates of special events and local festivals, name of newspaper and maybe online url, also. :C

RE: Labrador

You might use the 'contact' for Transportation and Works given on this webpage: http://www.roads.gov.nl.ca/cameras/ I know quite a bit of those routes have been paved, but am not sure of current conditions, or of the paving on connector roads. :C

RE: Best Way to Buy Canadian Dollars

In my experience: Best Way: Canadian Bank in person Worst Way: US Bank. Rate for large purchases and general guide: http://www.bankofcanada.ca/rates/exchange/ :C

RE: More things to NOT cross the border with...

Well, where are you finding out about these cases? And Frances, your link didn't work before. I tried several ways to make it link. :C

RE: More things to NOT cross the border with...

Gary, If you've posted on this sort of thing before, I missed it. Even for those who may have read a previous thread, it would be a good idea if you validated your stories by telling one and all where you found them and what confirmed their accuracy. PLease. :C

RE: Purchases in Canada

Besides which the taxes you pay in Canada on the purchase are refundable, so why not declare it? Incorrect. The refund for GST thing got stopped more than 6 years ago, i.e. that's when I moved from Newfoundland and I know it was stopped before that. :C

RE: Not the campground I expected.

Just a reminder for current reviews. Fewer BATS, fewer BATS. White Nose syndrome has killed bats. See my previous posting before you rush in and blame where that's not really a good idea. :)

RE: Not the campground I expected.

As others have said re. mosquitos, noseeums and other flying insects, these are usually consumed by bats. But through all of eastern North America, the bats have been attacked by white syndrome, a European ailment. Our bats have little immunity. Don't blame the cgs, they didn't bring the disease over from Europe. :C

RE: gaspe' - what are the larger grocery stores

I have a basic question for the thread starter. 1. When you start to check out an area for a trip to part of Canada, do you contact the provincial department of tourism (i.e. google.ca search term: "name of province & tourism") to get the visitors guide? Basic step 1. 2. Do you bring up google maps and look at the names of the places on that tour route? Then google up two websites for key names: municipality webpage & Wikipedia review of population settlement and history. basic step 2. In this case those two steps will help you see differences between the North Shore of the St. Lawrence River and the South Shore of the St. Lawrence River. And also, I am not the only one who missed the dietary need you have. Put such as either the first words of a sentence or the last words of a paragraph. So, check for health food stores in places like Rimouski, Matane and Gaspe. If they have webpages email them and ask where to find what you want. I'd bet you can find gluten free bread. Lastly, may I suggest using Canadian sources. If you can find a suitable media center, such as www.cbc.ca and search for radio or television. Radio especially can be picked up online. Follow through: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Quebec_media Under radio I see quite a few called CBC Radio One. That's jargon to replace 'am' radio. I have known a potential Labrador traveler to hunt up the towns there and contact each and every weekly newspaper and get online address. We keep hearing of folks overseas who use these sources to keep up with 'home.' :C

RE: gaspe' - what are the larger grocery stores

Sigh! You know they grow food in gardens in Gaspe, like many other places!!! & while I haven't been there since 2006, I recall that their stores were much the same as else where in Canada, including some very nice local, non chain stores. WHO the heck ever gave you the idea that to get good food, there have to be chain stores. My experience is go to the roadside stand for freshness, or the Farmer's Market. Farmer's Markets have been increasing their locations up here in recent years. :C
