RE: Days with out electric hook up?

..... I will have a generator along so I would never be without power but peace and quiet is appreciated by everyone. If your generator is one of the quiet inverter type generators then you won't have any issues in public campgrounds around noise although many will have rules around "generator hours". The year of our Alaska Road Trip we used public campgrounds quite a bit - I don't recall problems anywhere - but we did use our little Yamaha 1000 more than I might have anticipated - pretty much anywhere we spent more than 1 night - we have just a single battery and that furnace blower a killer .....

RE: Reservations???????

Only made one reservation on our Alaska trip - that was in Denali and we made it just a few days in advance - never had any problems. Have a great trip. Jay

RE: Sault Ste Marie area campgrounds

Generally the shoreline of Lake Superior is a lot cooler than locations further away from the lake - and on the days that it isn't a dip in it's cold waters instantly deals with any feelings you might have of being too warm ..... Jay

RE: Out of Country Travel Insurance - Travel to US

Your broker is probably a good source - but also check any insurance company where you might qualify for group coverage - i.e. past employment (you or your wife), credit cards, travel organizations (i.e. Snowbirds, CAA, Good Sam), retirement organizations (i.e. CARP) - and also ask those folks who regularly travel south for the winter - there must be lots of others who have faced this same issue.

RE: going to Alaska with doggie

I think the only actual requirement at the border is a rabies certificate - but ask your vet - they will know. If you plan on kenneling your dog while out for longer day trips then you should also think about the vaccination against kennel cough (forget the name of it) - many kennels will ask to see your pups vaccination records and if that particular vaccination is not included then they will not board it.

RE: Advice for Lake Superior and Lake Huron area Ontario

I did the trip in June from Thunder bay to Pembroke, Ontario via Hwy 17. The road around Superior is excellent for driving but worthless for sightseeing. The new road is a couple miles away from the Lake and out of sight for most of the trip. It is 2 lanes with very narrow shoulders and a cable fence for most of the distance. Pulling to the side for a picture is almost impossible as the semis are whizzing past at 120+kph. I did have a black bear run across the road in front of me and almost got rear ended by a semi when I slowed to avoid it. Later I saw 2 moose feeding at the roadside and knew it was time to stop for the night. To see anything you have to get off of 17 and go to the small towns. Many of those roads are not in good shape leaving the highway, and many of the towns have suffered by the highway being moved away from them. Sault Ste. Marie has a lot. The Agawa Canyon train is great, Soo Locks boat tour. all the other things on both sides of the border. Antlers restaurant on the Mich side is an experience. Sudbury has a lot to see and do also. Wow - I guess each to their own - can't say I recognize much of this route in the above description ..... Google "Hwy 17 Lake Superior Views" - then toggle on "images" - you'll get an idea of what you will see. In the view of most folks Hwy 17 from Thunder Bay to Sault Ste. Marie is one of the more scenic drives you will find anywhere. It is an amazing chunk of Canada's Canadian Shield that was made famous by The Group of Seven painters in the early part of the last century. And trucks? - most will be taking Hwy 11 - the more northerly and flatter route - for those you do encounter there are passing lanes on most (not all) grades. SSM and Sudbury as tourism destinations? - well - maybe - each do have their own solid attractions - good add-on's to be sure - but IMHO not significant enough to be the main destinations on this route. I suppose the difference in opinions may be that some most enjoy places where other's aren't - and some most enjoy places where others are ..... Jay
