RE: gaspe' - what are the larger grocery stores

There are all kinds of big stores, including Walmart if you are looking for a night stop.

RE: tay away from Muncho Lake, BC

Beats me why anybody would pay so much money just to pull over and and stay one night to sleep.

RE: tay away from Muncho Lake, BC

Here's a review a saw: For $55 a night, one gets 20 amp electric and water only, and not on the lake. Oh, I forgot you also get their generator that runs all day and night. Of course, this was not mentioned when I made the reservation. We picked this place (knowing the price, but not about the generator) because of the Muncho Lake setting, and it is magnificent. However, the constant loud noise from their generator destroys any sense of peace and tranquility this setting would instill. And make sure you have plenty of fuel or you will pay $1.89 a liter! To be fair, they knock off 20 cents if you stay there - big deal - the next station up the road is still 25 cents less than that. These people are obviously out to make as much money as they can off people or take unfair advantage of people who may be stuck in the middle of nowhere. We would have stayed just up the road if they had been up front about that generator. And the Milepost and website pictures are deceiving. The lodge itself and cabins look very nice, but the RV sites are something else. The back-ins require you to back down a road to your site - also not mentioned or to be seen in the web photos. OK for a bus, more difficult for a 5er - not to mention they are more expensive because they are right on the lake. There are other RV Parks in the area - don't make our mistake. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

RE: BC Parks, Porcupines, and Chicken Wire

Porcupines? I would be more concerned about Alaskan mosquitoes flying away with the family dog.

RE: British Columbia

Are there any security problems parking overnight at truck stops? In uk and particularly in Europe we wouldn't consider it. That said I understand that in Canada, and particularly BC, crime is low. But then we had our campervan broken into in a small village in France, so now we are quite careful about where we park leave it. Friends of mine from Australia came here for three months last year travelling in a small motorhome. They avoided all campsites. They dumped at dump stations and filled their water tank. They stayed overnight at airport parking lots, church parking lots, truck stops, big box stores and at tourist info centres. They told me it would just be to expensive to pay for every night during the three months. We went from coast to coast in Canada, took 65 days, we overnighted at 32 Walmarts, 4 Truck Stops, 5 rest stops and the balance at campsites.

RE: British Columbia

One thing to keep in mind about the weather in BC is that by the end of Aug. or early Sept., the eastern and northern part of the province is starting to get cold and places are starting to shut down for the winter. You are not very well informed about eastern and northern BC. Campsites are still open at the end of august AND early september. I wished people would check before they start posting rumours. When we were camping in that area of BC 20 - 30 years ago, that was what we found because of the low temps. I said they are "starting" to close, not they are closed. Lol, things have changed a lot in the last 30 years. We camp all over the place in september.

RE: Driving with the generator on

Mine is always on except when they fill it they always turn it off. When you go on a ferry they require you to turn it off. I know they check it when going on a BC ferry. They taped my propane access door.

RE: Rare Prince Rupert Photo

We were in Prince Rupert recently and had great weather. We travelled between Prince George and Prince Rupert for 10 days and never had a single drop of rain. (Btw....That campsite close to the ferry is a rip off.)

RE: BC Provincial Campsites - When are they open?

Ok Thanks! Seems most are still closed in the interior of BC. Looks like they don't open till around may 20.

BC Provincial Campsites - When are they open?

Does anybody know when the BC provincial campsites are opened ?

RE: Medical insurance in Canada?

Actually there is a small charge for airplane ambulance in British Columbia. It's not much, but I paid around 50 dollars for a 800 km flight. This was 10 years ago. Maybe things have changed.

RE: Spokane to 100 milehouse

You most likely will travel through the Fraser Canyon from Hope BC to 100 Mile House. An easy trip without any road problems and great scenery. Done it many times. No Walmarts between Hope and 100 Mile House. But there are many opportunities to pull over for the night. Once in 100 Mile there is free parking at Save On Foods on the north end of town. Near Hope we stayed at the shopping mall in Chilliwack. From there it's an easy day drive to 100 Mile House. From 100 Mile to Gustafson Lake you will be following a gravel road.

RE: red coat trail in Sask

Done the Red Coat Trail. No problems, some sections are good, some bad, but nothing really serious. We'll do it again this summer.

RE: Propane Sticker Shock

Why worry about propane prices if you own a $ 100.000 plus motorhome. i always get a kick out of it when people complain about nickels and dimes, yet they don't hesitate to blow money on expensive vehicles. :-) Just saying…

RE: Snow on roof

All dealers up north in Canada leave the snow on the RV's. I think removing would do more damage than leaving it on there. We have had RV's over 20 years and never ever removed any snow. We get about two feet every winter.

RE: Rving in southwest Canada

If you are just driving through stay at Walmarts, Truckstops, etc. We went across Canada several times and out of the 70 days we hit about 30 Walmarts and the rest campsites where we stayed a few days and some more…. No use paying upwards of 35/40 dollars a night if you just want to spend the night to sleep.

RE: Emergency Medical - Canada

For Canadians living in BC, I understand that for instance BC Medical is good for all across Canada. My wife required help in an Ontario hospital and it was covered by our BC Medical Plan. As I understand it, transportation from anywhere in Canada back to BC would not be covered. For years I have been buying extra insurance through BCAA when going to Europe. BCAA advised me also to buy their insurance when we stay in Canada. But I decided to refuse doing that. Any transportation across Canada would have to be paid out of my own pocket, which I can pay for. Our doctors and hospital services are covered across Canada by BC Medical.
