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.

RE: Seniors and motorcycles

The fact is that nobody wants to be in an accident. Your question does not make sense. I could ask, would you prefer to be in a car or an airplane, motorcycle, speed boat, on a collision course at 80 miles/hour. People ride motorcycle and get killed, people drive cars and get killed. People get killed walking on a side walk. People get killed in motorhomes.:)

RE: Seniors and motorcycles

Eye contact is never a guarantee but it's better than nothing. (Just my experience after 50 years of motorcycling.)That's not what my instructors counseled me. I was instructed over and over again to watch the tires, if they move you're in danger. I don't see how you can do both reliably and making eye contact does not guarantee the tires aren't moving. It's clear you did not read my previous post, I did mention the wheels. But...ah well...everybody has his own opinion. My opinion worked just fine for me for 50 years. Have a great ride you all. :-)

RE: Are there hookups at Provencial Parks?

I hate to disappoint you but I used water and power there in august. Goes to show you: Don't believe everything you see on internet forums.

RE: Seniors and motorcycles

I never act as though I've made eye contact, that way I'm not surprised when they do something stupid. Thinking you've made eye contact can get you hurt, so IMO it's not better than nothing. OK.

RE: Seniors and motorcycles

I am 68 and have been riding since I was 18 years old. Never been without a motorcycle since I started. Right now we (wife on the back) ride a Honda CBF and a Triumph Bonneville. Accidents can happen, one of the most common accidents is somebody with a car making a left hand turn right in front of you. When I see a car at an intersection with a signal light going, I slow right down to the point of having eye contact with the driver. A lot of times, when I am in my car and ready to make a left hander, I have a guy on a motorcycle go by me like a bat out of hell. He's 2 feet away from being dead meat, just lucky I am sitting on my brakes and my front wheels still facing straight ahead! Watch out for cars that have their front wheels already facing left...somebody could hit them in the back and push them in your line of travel.

RE: Are there hookups at Provencial Parks?

I was there a few weeks ago and there was power. Okay, I'll E mail the Prov Gov't Parks people and tell them that they are wrong. Gary Haupt Yes, you do that, Gary. I was just there two days ago again. Nicely hooked up to power and water. :-)

Juniper Beach between Kamloops/Cache Creek

I just want to point out that the Provincial BC Park "Juniper Beach" between Kamloops and Cache Creek, still has power AND water. Somebody posted on here that the power had been discontinued....but this is NOT the case. We just spend last night there hooked up to both.

RE: Are there hookups at Provencial Parks?

None in BC that I can think of. Gary Haupt There are electrical hook ups at the provincial park between Cache Creek and Kamloops BC It's the park at the Thompson River, Juniper Beach and down the road at Steel Head.

RE: I can't believe that I found this...

No, it's not pretty, but for being the age it is (over 40 years) it looks usable...someone would be happy to get that rig, fix it and have some fun. Like another poster said, not everyone can afford a newer rig and some who could would rather not. The pictures are honest portrayals of the MH and its condition...don't see a problem there. Well said! Most fancy new big rigs are financed. At least these guys are willing to put it in their lot. Most wouldn't. Somebody will be happy to own it and good for them.
