RE: Traveling thru Canada with dog

The CFIA website does not indicate a health cert is required. Importing or Travelling with Domestic Dogs Maybe not, but there are statements in various government sites that the pet must be in good health. & every single vet I've had since 1978 has recommended that I have a statement of good health signed by a vet. Such a thing is easily added to what is done at an annual check up. It is true that US Border guards ask about the dogs more often and are more likely to ask to see pet food when there are any sources of flu in animal sources of protein. Keep your original pet food container. :C

RE: Gas Prices in Canada for US travellers

Well, the most riotess gasoline experience on my cross continent trip earlier this year was in Skagway, AK. I had learned lots about pay at the pump places and could complete that transaction about 95% of the time, but at Skagway, I found a gas station with NO attendant. I`ve never been compelled to pay at the pump at gas stations out east. I drove around town a good 3 times before I found someone else at the pumps. & she walked me through that one. I didn`t even think of total $, I just wanted gas so I wouldn`t have to stop in Watson Lake heading south. What still has me sputtering was the attitude of the US Customs person. Rude is a light term for his outlook. I`m used to crossing with my father and my step mother from Lubec, ME to Campolbello, NB and exchanging pleasantries about me (the Canadian citizen) having been born in the US and my father and stepmodther (the American citizens) being born in Canada. After all in that part of the world family histories often run on both sides of the border. But Skagway critter used term expatriate as if my choosing Canada was criminal. I didn`t tell him he wasn`t doing tourism any favours. :C

RE: Cleaning my grill - Help!

Heck guys, what is the price of a grill - one monthly payment on a new truck? Anyway another cleaning place you likely have is the house oven, on self cleaning cycle. 800'F that is, or, should I say that's self cleaning on my 8 year old house stove. Then again you can email the Wildlife Center of Virginia, which is a hospital for wildlife. They have several veterinarians who can advise you. ;)

RE: Gas Prices in Canada for US travellers

We are thinking of visiting NS again. We haven't yet been to PEI so this might be the summer to go! We had a good time every time we've visited Canada. Now, there is a section of Open Roads Forum called RVing in Canada and Alaska. It's http://forums.woodalls.com/index.cfm/fuseaction/listings/forum/65.cfm. Why the moderators in General RVing hold onto threads about Canada in their section drives me up the wall. I'd like to suggest that you to over to RVing in Canada and Alaska and start a thread on where you might visit in PEI and Nova Scotia. Include some idea of the things you like to see and do. :C

RE: Gas Prices in Canada for US travellers

Sources of $ value. http://www.bankofcanada.ca/rates/exchange Our $, the CA$ went up today. Closing rate $1.3773 US$ value for $ 1.000 CA$ 3.785 l. to 1 US gallon. Gas prices vary a lot across the country.http://www.gasbuddy.com/CAN. & you can also check by province for fuel price regulation. New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador all have fuel price regulation. fuel, utilities, regulation are all words to use when googling for such. Also check distances of travel from point to point. Don't think that doing a route in the US will cost less. T'ain't so, since distance Canada locale to Canada local may be much less, than driving south all that way ..... Besides which, if you want to see Canada drive in Canada. :C

RE: Traveling to Canada for insurance question

Find out what medical coverage is there and get additional in place. I very much doubt that any plan covers anything under regular terms of insurance past 30 days from the day you leave home. & it is the insurance companies you have to ask, not us. :C

RE: Canadian Maritimes

Re. Gros Morne and anything across The Gulf, don't you think folks shy off when they have to go to that extra expense of the ferry or the plane to get there? I didn't mention the ferry that runs from Campobello Island to Deer Island and then Grand Manan Island and back because I haven't taken it, but I've heard really good reports about that trip. Do I feel spoiled for living in this part of the world? Heck no. & by the by I only did Hartland Bridge this fall. Oooooooh, forgot Magdalen Islands. Yep, on my bucket list, they are. :C

RE: Canadian Maritimes

pronounced kay-LEE Depends on whether your are a Scot or a Mic. I have heard it pronounced both ways when I've been in the Maritimes. Gros Morne has Cabot Trail Is there a second Cabot Trail? I only know the one that's in Nova Scotia on Cape Breton Island. Forgot about the Fortress of Louisbourg. That is a great place to visit. Kay-lee is what I hear in 3 out of the 4 directly affected provinces. Check out BaraMacneils works and those of others with direct gaelic ancestors. What I gave you was a ratio re. Gros Morne and Cabot Trail. I think Gros Morne is a 100 times better park than Cabot Trail. The reason is easy to find. They (Parks Canada and political developers)took out the settlements, human interpretations of early settlers for Cabot Trail. They, again Parks Canada and Federal and this time local and provincial developers, worked together. Have you visited Gros Morne? :C

RE: Canadian Maritimes

Go to the College of Piping in Summerside on PEI and take in a performance and attend a ceilidh (pronounced KAY-lay). Fundy National Park, NB. Get some peanut butter cookies, raisin bread and sticky buns at the bakery in Alma, the town just outside the park. Observe the tidal bore in New Brunswick. Drive the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. Visit the two national parks in Newfoundland, Gros Morne and Terra Nova. A) pronounced kay-LEE B) Maritimes are the 3 provinces in Confederation (nation of Canada) before 1949. Joey wanted the term Atlantic Canada to be the term for the 4 provinces on the Atlantic Ocean, when Newfoundland and Labrador entered Canada. Now, having lived on Newfoundland between 1983 and 2008, I heartily agree on many places. Gros Morne has Cabot Trail and enclosing park beat by about 100:1 JHMO. Don't cross The Gulf unless you can give that Island 2 weeks. & if you want me to let fly on that one, I sure can do so big, big time. Back to the Maritimes (where my roots are) -Louisbourg Fortress, Tip o' Cape Breton, ie. Meat Cove (hike), 5 Islands Provincial Park, Whycocomagh cg, Farmers Daughter store and surounds, Historic Properties Halifax, Yarmouth Museum, -Fundy, Tidal Bore, Kings Landing, Acadien Historic Village, Hartland worlds longest bridge, THE BAKERY on Grand Manan Island, Campobello Island with Lubec, ME thrown in; -PEI so I have the Anne books about memorized but I've never been to the make believe grounds and never will go, did beaches in the teens, love little day boat trips (view the scene, deep sea fish....) New Glasgow Lobster Suppers, Farmer's Market, Orwell Corner Village and Museum & neighboring Sir Andrew McPhail property, woolen mills, Alpaca Farms............Make sure to drive through some midlands for hills experience. Dirt roads Ask about The Klondike. All of which can be googled. Where to Eat in Canada searched for yummy rewards. Yes, to take ferry to and bridge from PEI. You pay one way and Bridge is Cheapest. :B Wish me luck on this image: Atlantic Canada without Labrador http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-E0FTxiZ9rew/TgyWnbqG7YI/AAAAAAAAAbk/e6FbI4SbWOM/s1600/Canada_map.jpg width=640 9 km Confederation Bridge http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_OzkM8ZQJ0mY/TJZiFf3Iw-I/AAAAAAAAEqQ/xNrdfu8QSWw/s400/images.jpg

RE: Newest kitty traveler

As a kid.......Then there was the kitten I named Int because he was always interested in what was right there at that moment. He looked very much like your little one. & when my father brought my Brownie Holliday pictures home from the photo shop, he'd say: "I wish you'd take pictures of something besides cats." I don't have handy access to a scanner anymore. :B

RE: Trans-Canada Hghwy in Ont closed indefinitely

Its open again. One lane only. http://ici.radio-canada.ca/breve/41281/ontario-reouverture-pont-riviere-nipigon Je ne parle pas francais. :) I solved that one for you, who at least troubled to look up a few words en francais. I gave you links to CBC news page articles. Living where you do I'd think you'd know to check CBC webpages for news without help. After all the CBC track record for fact checking before releasing a story item is one of the best, if not the best, in the world. So, the moral: key in and save www.cbc.ca/news Use when you want Canadian updates. :R

RE: Anyone else going to Newfoundland in 2016?

Please read what I wrote. I said to keep an ear and listen for for semis, be prepared to pull over when they come through. & that the roads are built for TWO big rigs to pass each other going in opposite directions. Hardly any one's idea of a jeep trail. Again if you want to be believed, read what you're replying to. :C

RE: Anyone else going to Newfoundland in 2016?

Note my motto, "& I took the road less traveled by". You miss one heck of a lot of stuff by being afraid of it. I'll bet I could find lots of interesting views or things happening on the gravel roads in your back yard. :P

RE: Anyone else going to Newfoundland in 2016?

We might cross paths. Not like there are an awful lot of roads in NL. Ahem! Side roads, industrial roads............. LOTS, If you have a 4wd wheels as part of your touring power, many more. Red Indian Lake and Grand Lake for 2 places can be circumnavigated by 2wd vehicles of several sizes. & east of Red Indian Lake one day I started down a side road, but came to a sign, "No gas for 65 kilometes". That's an indication of an industrial operation further down the road. Then there is the area west of Deer Lake, north and west of Corner Brook. It's a logging area, so keep your ears tuned for those big rigs heading out at 100 klicks and get over to the side. Yep there are roads in that territory so semis can pass each other going at highway speeds in opposite directions. Plenty of people have cabins in that area and fish the many waterways. Been there, enjoyed all that. :B

RE: Anyone else going to Newfoundland in 2016?

I think you are a bit early for going to Newfoundland. We were there one year in mid June with the hopes of doing some hiking. We could not access some trails due to snow and ice still being on the trails. A lot depends on the kind of winter they have. Also you might have trouble finding open campgrounds and some of the attractions might not be open in May. Play this video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B9OommJlrPY Queen's Birthday weekend through Canadian Thanksgiving Day is trad. campgrounds are open period. Granted there are cgs open all year, ie. Green Point, Gros Morne NP etc and the gravel pits mentioned. Check the iceberg finder. Check ice conditions via Environment Canada weather page. https://weather.gc.ca/canada_e.html If the ice is thin or gone in the Strait of Belle Isle, t'will be long camping season. If there are few or no closures of the ferry from NS to Port aux Basques, NL, again, 'tis a low ice year. I was in NL from 1983 to 2008. Now, in The Maritimes. To go by weather so far, I dunno. Like, by forecast I expect snow around me to be gone coming Monday. & almost looking like a year to leave the ice skates in the closet. Dunno, dunno, dunno. Last year largest snowfall for any year didn't really start coming down until the end of January. Dunno, dunno, dunno. Again, check the ice and ferry crossings. :@ :h :S

RE: Does THIS Exist?

Is this too big?? Yeah, my little one is only 2-quarts. I figure a deep would add maybe 2-3 more cups? Plus, this one isn't a "camp" DO. I will adapt to my circumstances. Aussies don't call their ovens Dutch ovens, but Camp ovens. :C
