RE: tour canada

My wife and I are considering touring southern Canada this summer. Anyone have advice? Class A motor home. Best time for us is mid-August to Labor day. Maybe start north of Montana and end at Niagara Falls? Anyone going that way we could join up with? Any advice welcome. To the Original Poster... Could you possibly come back and just make a post that you have read or seen replies to your post? :h I realize you are new here but just wondering if you posted and left or are still with us? May I add, I've read your 'mid August to Labour Day' & really taken that in Aug 15 - Aug 31 = 16 days Sept 1 - Sept 4 = 4 days. To be sure 20 days is better than 0 days, but it sure is a tease for this beautiful ....... :p

RE: Dutch Oven size recommendation

Will any 8/10/12/14 dutch ovens "nest" inside a larger do for storage? Sure Natch Of course, Hey, the walls of any aren't so thick as to cut out nesting. Cabelas has some nice foam and cloth zipped bags that help to make safe storage places. I think I did a subject search in their catalogue to find what I bought. :)

RE: tour canada

When I did my east-west crossing of the country I put Royal Tyrrell Museum http://tyrrellmuseum.com/ at the very top of my list and vowed to go out of my way to get there, if need be. I was right. :B

RE: Newbies interested in PEI and Cape Breton this summer

Out here in Atlantic Canada (ie. 3 provinces in Canada in 1800s called The Maritimes)plus Newfoundland and Labrador who joined Canada in 1949, seasons are as follows: Spring is slow to come Summer is pleasant in that temps seldom get to 90'F or 35'C Fall is prolonged, cool at night often very lovely in daytime. Many a year serious frosty nights don't happen until late October. But some really great sites to visit lose their extra summer staff about September 1. So, what do you like to do? Hike, swim, boat in coastal waters. Sweat not the small stuff. But if you need a lifesaver to patrol your beach, no go after Labour Day. Hit the historic sites and convenient hours, come before September. Examples Louisbourg Fortress is a major reconstruction. Staff in period dress on Cape Breton. Or Orwell Corner a historic village in PEI with adjoining historical museum. Again before Sept 1. Neighboring Sir Andrew Macphail estate likewise Get local delectable eats at .seasonal picking times. Easy as pie for Farmer's Markets at Saint John, NB, Charlottetown, PEI, Cardigan, PEI, Farmer's Daughter at Whycocomagh, Cape Breton. Call, tourism guides: online search: name of province & tourism. Ask about your special interests & There are things called Fall Flavours. In June there is Festival of Small Halls for two weeks in June with some sites booked first ticket night, or Stan Fest June 30 - July 2. etc..... Remember take the ferry to PEI and the Bridge off. You pay only for the leaving crossing and the bridge costs less than the ferry. Does that help? :B Left out the winter season. More in some provinces (Newfoundland and Labrador) than others. There's a skiers trying for a Believe it or Not entry this weekend, besides other skiing. & Other provinces and Alaska have sled dog races. ie. http://www.yukonquest.com/ is on this week for 9 - 10+ days....

RE: cool looking fried eggs

How thick are the slices of the peppers? Peppers in N. Am. are capsicum in Australia. :B

RE: Dutch Oven size recommendation

Welcome to the world of Cast Iron Chefs. I found a 10" Dutch oven of mine(garage sale), but no legs and curved lid, thus not a charcoal type. Thank you for thoughts. Dean One can take aluminum foil and create a rim for the edge of a rounded lid. That raised portion lets juices drip back into the rest of the recipe. :C

RE: Poor Peg

My longest lived Chessie made it that far partly because my vet prescribed 1 glucosamine/chondroitin 900 pill per day to help her with arthritic stuff - just like me, except I get 2 pills per day. When she came to the end, I brought her inside for food, which she declined. I gave her water, which she drank, then brought back up. With that I knew, "it's today". I had swiped her name for my forum name, btw. :C

RE: Poor Peg

Have I known you that long, Mark? I remember a photo of Peg as a young lady. You all went to observe a trial day,but had no dogs there yourselves. & Peg had a litter mate who was there. & when they saw each other, they exchanged strong greetings. Am I right. That was young Peg? :C

RE: Canadian Atlantic itinerary check

To edit any post you have to have that post open on your computer. I think, to edit the title line, you need to be in post #1, click on edit and try. It's been a long time since I tried that. Or, go to the section called "Forum Technical Support" via that menu in the frame on the upper right hand side of this page. - Browse around and if you're lucky you'll find the how on your own, but - If push comes to shove, you post in FTS and a mod or Admin will tell you how. Even so the world is not going to come to and end if the thread title stays as is. :C

RE: Canadian Atlantic itinerary check

Corrections. When you get down here locals will appreciate local spellings and terminology. Saint John, NB vs. St. John's, NL Maritimes = the 3 provinces which joined Canada in the 1800s., namely New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island. & of course, the conference that started Confederation was in Charlottetown, PEI, hence the term, Cradle of Confederation. Atlantic Canada = Joey Smallwood's term to add in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador, which joined Canada in 1949. Per your trip outline, you are just visiting The Maritimes. Your trip would need to be at least 2 weeks longer to include all 4 of Atlantic Canada's provinces. Your trip is yours alone. It is what pleases you. This is beautiful part of the world. You're bound to miss parts you would enjoy. Be flexible. Think, we might want to change. Enjoy :B

RE: Canadian Atlantic itinerary check

Some MUSTS. Campobello Island and neighboring Maine. One can take the bridge to Campobello and then a ferry to Deer Island then Grand Manan. Lots up your alley on all. Include getting to The Bakery on Grand Manan well before opening to get your place in line. Agree on Fundy Think things Acadian. Louisbourg Fortress, good day or more. Whycocomagh, prov. cg, Farmer's Daughter. PEI, remember to cross the central hinterland more than once. Orwell Historical Village. Farmer's Markets, esp. Charlottetown. :B

RE: Sam was out maneuvered or out gunned

Wendy was back on chain pulling tire to keep her in same field as sheep. She broke the quick link between snap used to attach to her collar and the chain attached to tire. She also got a reality check; she got popped on nose for guarding sheep feed from the sheep. When having a houdini of a dog, I have either gone to a attachment link with a rotating part or padlock. Padlock is the only secure connecting device. Parenting puppy dogs has its challenges. ;)

RE: Sam was out maneuvered or out gunned

My temptation is to say, you get Birch another dog, about Wendy's size. Or this 'problem' will occur with any dog you get for yourselves, Sam or......sheep pal. If Wendy's spayed, anyone can feed her and think 'oh, she really needs more to eat.' The scent of Wendy and other attractions won't easily get 'erased.' I would also think that it would be easy to find a vet to support you in this, not to mention people who work in seniors care homes. My sympathies. :C

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

Any way to get there other than ferry? To NFLD? Fly, or swim ... but in either case you won't be taking your RV. :W Nonsense, there's a lot you can't do, if you tie yourself down to staying in burgs. You get what you pay for and with an RV you should have a fair idea of how to economize on the road. Cooking at least 1/2 of your meals as you do at home is one. :C

RE: rv camping in Canada, different than camping in the US?

You can get to Labrador from Quebec, cross Labrador, then take a ferry from Blanc Sablon, QC to Newfoundland. In my photo collection are pics of me going the opposite way. My choice was to stop for the tours of hydro dams and related developments. Labrador City had a special day the day I happened to be there and aside from various races, the whole place was closed up. Also, I should mention that you can drive all the way across Labrador now and some is paved. & I still think the rver who emailed each and every municipality with a web page had a great trip. Always ask locals. Then when you get to Newfoundland give yourself at least two weeks, better 4 to visit all around. Without a doubt it's changed since I moved across the Gulf in 2008. Fish/seafood for eating natch. Larger centers for general shopping and gasoline. Check Public Utilities Board for gas prices, ie. costs less Deer Lake through Corner Brook than south around Stephenville. St. John's being the largest most dense population area has lowest gas prices. Some absolute musts: L'Anse aux Meadows, Gros Morne both sides of Bonne Bay, Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary, a selection of St. John's. Check what festivals are where. Play Tempting Providence @ Gros Morne Theatre festival in Cow Head. 'Tis local history. :B

RE: Site to check my speed of internet access

Thanks to you both. I will do my checking in the day time, first. {{{ Interesting, although that site indicates an area of eastern N. Am. continent, it gives me ads of Canadian interest, like the musical Come From Away. Ok, ok, I know that's going to Broadway, but it is about Sept. 11, 2001 in and around Gander, NL. }} :C
