RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

Along with CA, NY, and IL, Canada and Mexico are places we will never visit again. Too many rules that don't agree with our life style. I strongly recommend you go visit an ISIS locale, something even more different and challenging. ;)

RE: Nova Scotia Info - esp Cabot Trail

By the By all of Atlantic Canada has very good entertainers. Lots of festivals for summer. In the time since 1983, the weekend entertainment in Corner Brook has increased so that folks from other parts of said island and southern Labrador are as like to come to Corner Brook to shop and take in the shows as St. John's. In 1983 lots more Newfoundlanders would shop in SJ than.... Check out East Coast Music Association. ;)

RE: When a 50 pound puppy wants to be held...

There are guides for such. Once my 100 lb. mature dog beat up his companion. I did some reading and with a suggestion, I rolled him on his back and put my open hand around the base of the under side of his neck. My source said this would indicate that I was the dominant soul in my house. At 10.5 years he did some jumping, while on a chain attached to the truck and me in the campground shower. I wasn't happy with how he got himself loaded for the day and stopped fairly soon. Tried again. Then did an hour and half drive home knowing I had a dying dog aboard. When I called the vet I was told to check eye relfex - none. Twisted bowel. He made it very clear that morning that he trusted me. Guides help, but they are far from the be all and end all. :(

RE: Nova Scotia Info - esp Cabot Trail

RE: Nova Scotia Info - esp Cabot Trail

A) Lived in NL 24.5 years. Gros Morne National Park is the best park in Atlantic Canada. Why, locals participate!!!!!! B) Roads around Cabot Trail are paved. Better doings, places IMHO are north end of Cape Breton Is, except for Louisbourg Fortress. BTB there are period eateries and restaurants. C) Of course, I love water, the PONDS in NL - take boat tours, & I've never done enough of Lake Bras D'Or in NS. D) NB/Maine Campobello Is. and Lubec, ME and coastal cruising on land roads and water. Used to own land in that part of Maine. Worst thing that has happened to that part of Maine ------- Walmart Store which rather wiped out some very nice good service and product stores from Bangor and north. Now, when I worked in Corner Brook and Walmart and Canadian Tire were across the parking lots from each other, folks bought from Canadian Tire over Walmart if same product was available in both!!!! ..... course, I am Canadian. Oh, and don't forget Labrador and L'Anse aux Meadows, & Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary.......oh & St. John's.... :B

RE: Had a new moose calf born in the backyard yesterday

I too have been 'close' to 'a' moose 2x. 1. Walking with my Chessie dogs on a trail from parking to a power line and back. All of a sudden young moose jumps up in the bush 5 feet from us and runs away. I couldn't tell 'male' or 'female'. 2. While digging potatoes one October morning, I stood up to give myself a 'rest' of straightened legs, when Mr. Moose came trotting in from the upper terrain through my back lot and to the very edge of my garden just to stand. Oops 'turnips' are a bare 10 feet from him. "Good morning", I said and Mr. Moose turned ran off my back lot quite directly for the house owned by our resident 'taxidermist', I kid you not. Could kick myself for worrying about the turnips. I wish, I wish I'd taken a longer look. As PackerBacker says.... ....................Oops, never mind all of those times I've come to a full stop on a public road/highway, 4-laner, etc for a moose. What does a moose do in these cases, but wait for you to stop and then moseyed leisurely across the road. The caribou behave like that too. But sometimes they run away from you. Always glad it's away, not into my wheels. ................ :C

RE: Trans Canadian Highway campimg suggestions

Have to question your going south around the Great Lakes. Lots of interesting things to see on Canadian side. Liked the cg just west of Thunder Bay, but don't remember name. I went north around Lake Winnipeg going so I could pop into Northwest Territories (Hay River) and then to AB, BC and up to the Yukon. Liked the Whitehorse folks suggestion of 2.5 hour drive to Skagway, AK. It's really different. But came back to main CA drag to camp in so so place. My biggest tourist site by about 1000x was Royal Tyrrell Museum & that is more southerly, so my return route was more south. I did not go to Vancouver or such. :C

RE: Upcoming Trip to Newfoundland

does anyone have campground recommendations for New Brunswick (and NS?)...i'm researching now but any first hand experience is appreciated! Once upon a time (Oct 20+ 2004) I stopped in SW NB for a purchase. I asked the staff at said place for suggestions and they called around. What came to light was that 20 - 30 people were working Fredericton during the week and living in their rvs. They went 'home' for the weekend, but the campground was still open. So, find yourself a business, (mine was Briggs Wool factory) and ask. Or you check municipal offices in larger centers, St. Stephen, Fredericton, Moncton, Saint John..... All based on your going before Victoria Day weekend or after Canadian Thanksgiving, when many cgs aren't open. :C

RE: Free overnights transiting Canada

Ask, especially at Wally World's in Canada. Granted Canadians will shop at Canadian Tire stores before they go to the USA chain. :p

RE: How to get rid of birds?

The number of birds on this planet is decreasing by a dangerous amount. Do your bit for biodiversity and talk to bird/wildlife biologists and find out how to lure these birds to a place where they will want to build a different nest. Yes, I know that some wildlife folks blame cats for the decrease in birds, but when you think about the number human animals who have used weed and feed and tried to make their lawns monocultural, you will realize that humans are the big problem. As I say talk to those who will help you make these birds want to go elsewhere. :C

Over 600 icebergs have already been counted off the NL coast. :B

RE: RV Parks near Quecec and Must See in Quebec?

RE: What Do I need To Visit Canada

Actually you can stay up to 6 months then you would need to apply for an extension or other immigration type status. You will likely not want to be here in the winter; even us Canadians don't really want to be here in the winter! :B. :B ... Eric Even SOME Canadians haven't learned how to play in the snow and take joy from the crunch, crunch of walking on it. Skiing downhill, skiing cross country, snowshoeing, snow boarding, ski-doing,snow fort building, snow fort combat......... :p :p :p :p :p

RE: What Do I need To Visit Canada

AHEM! New Brunswick is the one province which is officially bilingual. QC est francais! Get yourself a wee dictionary. Learn a wee bit aux francais, merci beaucoup, bonjour, au revior, & maybe you wouldn't believe the good will you learn by showing that much interest. Try lots of roads. Sure, little ones are slower, but hey, they have more to see. Every province has a French section. Newfoundland, it's the Port au Port Peninsula, Nova Scotia the SW coasts, PEI, Summerside, Rustico, Souris. Ontario NW bordering QC and around Sudbury...... :C

RE: Upcoming Trip to Newfoundland

Yeah, it's real tough to find that site that tracks icebergs. http://www.icebergfinder.com/ Key that in and up it comes. But it doesn't really start tracking until MAY. Think and you'll understand why. ;) ps, I remember this couple who didn't get to Newfoundland until May 18. Then they went tearing up the roads as fast as they could go in case all of the icebergs had melted before they got there!!!! As said above springs in that part of the world don't encourage starting some gardens until June.

RE: Upcoming Trip to Newfoundland

I lived in NL from 1983 to 2008, 24.5 years. A) The Maritimes is the 3 provinces that joined Canada in the 1800s. B) ATLANTIC Canada is 4 provinces, ie, the above 3 plus Newfoundland and Labrador, which joined Canada in 1949. DO NOT tell any Newfoundlander/Labradorian that you are enjoying The Maritimes when you are in THAT province. You pay a fare to NL and another fare from NL. C) There is a route up from PAB to Corner Brook, then Deer Lake. At Deer Lake you hang a left and cross the Northern Peninsula. You might go to Trout River and Woody Point. Actually, that's essential to see both sides of Bonne Bay. You want to do both "PONDS" aka fjords. & it is essential to see some theatre at Cow Head, especially, Tempting Providence, which covers local events. Do lots of hiking in Gros Morne then head up the coast, wonder around all the way north, spend t......i.....m......e in around St. Anthony. parks, walks, eat and whale watch, head a bit west then south and see a bit of the east coast of the NP, then at Roddickton go west. Consider a couple of days in Labrador or 2 weeks in said "Big Land" wrapping up in QC. SEE my photos from 2006. Ok that's western parts. There is a much and more going east and south. Cape St Mary's Bird Sanctuary. There is a build your own tour option for NL. For ALL CA provinces google up 'name of province' & tourism. Call them and make sure to mention your special interests. Almost all will send you extra booklets. Another essential (besides fortress at Louisbourg) take the ferry to PEI and the Bridge FROM. You only pay one way. Bridge costs lots less than ferry. Can answer more .... :B

RE: Mark, how soon new waggly tails?

& toward the end you must prove that you've still got very good eyes. My cataracts got demanding mid-cross continent trip, especially after dark. How much longer will you have this year's lambs? :B
