RE: Your favorite place you've been

My favourite thus far is Jolly Roger in Marathon, FL. It's the only campground I've visited in the Keys. You can't go wrong with anywhere in the Keys, though.

RE: Florida December Vacation

Daytona Beach. The Encore resort nearby in Ormond Beach might have a spot. We really enjoyed it there.

RE: Secure internet access?

Verizon has a coverage map on their site. Have a look.

RE: Secure internet access?

Virgin broadband to go for me. Not sure what the regular cost is since I bought the unit as a Black Friday special, but you buy a top-up card from Wal Mart in the US.

RE: Nexus cards

Just a word of advice, although since you just had your interview and received your information and have already read it, when driving across the border and see nexus specific lanes, EVERYONE in the vehicle has to have their card. One person, say another family member or friend, with a passport and you HAVE to go through the regular line(s). They will tear a strip off you up and down if you go through that lane and they can disqualify everyone from the program, send you back home and, thus, you'd have no choice but to get passports for your next trip. Read the documents very carefully and know ahead of time ALL the restrictions. Things you can bring across are actually more restrictive than traveling with just your passport(s) and caught with any will disqualify everyone along for the trip.

RE: Best RV Club for a Canadian

Passport America for me. My 3 year membership paid for itself my 2 week tour of Florida. 4 nights at Jolly Roger Travel Park in Marathon and 4 nights at the Encore park in Ormond Beach. Your mileage may vary. It will probably be tough to find a park down south that doesn't have a restriction on use during the winter, which, of course, is prime snowbirding season and they don't need the discount to provide additional customers. Visit the Passport America site and see which parks offer the discount in the areas you'd like to visit. From there, you can see what the restrictions are. If it seems like you can make it work, call to see if they have Passport America sites available when you're planning on being there. If everything lines up, buy the membership and then make your reservation(s).

RE: Living in an RV in New York City during winter

Just asking because I do not know... does NYC not have by-laws regarding parking overnight on the streets during winter? If not, do they just plow around parked vehicles after getting snow?

RE: Park to park

Personally, once I retire and start snowbirding, I'm sure my winters will be month here - month there kind of thing until I find a park that I would feel comfortable calling home of the entire time I plan on wintering down south. Once I find that park, I'd surely reserve 3 or 4 months the following winter there and spend the rest of the time I plan on spending away very slowly making my way back.

RE: Nexus cards

Remember, a Nexus card does not allow you to fly home in an emergency... need a passport for that. Canadians can use Nexus to enter Canada from anywhere, provided the airport has retina scanning on its Nexus machines. After receiving their card, they can go to a designated crossing and have their retina's scanned by CBSA. Those scans are then matched to their card. This is correct. In addition, more and more airports in the US are participating in the "Global Entry" program, which includes the Nexus card, and have special Global Entry lanes which take you out of the lines with everyone else. They can be found here : http://usa.immigrationvisaforms.com/travel/global-entry-participating-airports To answer the OPs question, I cross the border frequently with our Nexus cards as we don't maintain valid passports anymore. I camp mostly in Massena, NY. However, I can say that there are Nexus lanes where there is no way I could drive the RV. There is one I passed in Niagara Falls (our side) where the lane was so narrow and a sharp turn in that I could never make it with the RV, but that's the only one what I would imagine would have that kind if restriction.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

You are talking about the camper, aren't you? :W You should have that discussion with Sue...... I went to camping World yesterday and looked at motorhomes while the Montana's furnace was being repaired. The price of those things are unreal. At 73 years old I could finance a motorhome for twenty years making me ninety-three years old when it is paid for. They justified a sale they made by stating an eighty two year old man bought a motorhome and financed it for twenty years. I asked what happens if the eighty two year old man dies and leaves the debt on the motorhome for his family to pay for? They replied the bank gets it back or the family continues to pay for it. Imagine leaving your family with a motorhome with a debt of over one-hundred thousand dollars to be settled at probate. In all good conscience I could not leave Sue with a debt that large just for the sake of enjoying it while I was alive and leaving her with the obligation of paying it back by herself. Okay enough of that. The girls are doing fine. Suzie ran out the door this morning with her favorite toy. For some reason she wanted it in the yard with her while she took care of business. Hobo, Peaches and Izzie are okay but Hobo and Izzie were naughty this morning. Peaches was busy eating her food and was almost finished when Izzie attacked Peaches from the rear. Peaches left her food in an attempt to escape Izzie and Hobo moved in and finished Peaches food. It all was so quick and smooth it was hard to follow until I saw Hobo licking Peaches bowl. Okay I need to get moving so I will wish everyone a blessed day and I will talk with you later. My loan had insurance where, if either one of us passed away, the other owned it outright with remainder of loan paid off by insurance.

RE: New RV park, just south of manzanillo

The picture on their website shows them on the beach but the Lat Lon coordinates are several blocks from the beach - at least that is what I see on Google Earth. Maybe their numbers are off? Must be off. Their photos show them 7 blocks up right on the beach. On google maps you can see the pad that's on the corner of the lot where the MH is pictured on the blog. More like 18.919076, -104.072298

RE: Rv park reviews

rvparkreviews.com is my first resource when planning out stops at new (to me) campgrounds and parks.

RE: niagara falls

We liked staying at the KOA in Medina (Wildwood Lake) when visiting the US side of the Falls.

RE: When to Dump??

Before I bring it back home, if the tanks aren't full, I'll fill them both and dump them.

RE: My Experience re. shipping to Canada

Hi, Let's suppose you live in Edmonton. To pick up a parcel in Montana would require a road trip of 8 hours one way. But I live in Regina, so it is only 2 hours one way. Personally I can't drive for 4 hours round trip to save $50. If you only do it for that, then no it doesn't make sense. However, if you combine it with a whole bunch of groceries and some clothes shopping, you'll up those savings considerably.

RE: My Experience re. shipping to Canada

Luckily, there is a UPS store in Ogdensburg, NY, a 40 minute or so drive away, that will accept and hold packages for you for a small fee. Considering I do quite a bit of online shopping, I've saved quite a bit on these brokerage fees and Canada Post charges.

RE: LT vs ST's - Canadian Tires cries "Illegal!".

There really isn't anything I would trust Canadian Tire with in the first place.

RE: Full-Timing...what's your opinion...

We can't wait to get to fulltiming. My main reason is something that a lot of you don't need to concern yourselves with... the godforsaken Canadian winter. Seriously... I've had more than enough and I got a little over 11 years still to go. Please, let me hit the lottery soon!! I don't see a need to maintain a home here when I'll be away for 5-6 months of the year. If I can live in a MH down in Florida/Texas/Arizona/wherever for 6 months in the US, I can do so the remaining months up here once that crummy white******is gone.

RE: backing up your toad

Yes, to my knowledge SDcamp and Westernrvpark are not the same. I don't recall seeing anything from SDcamp that would lead me to believe I wouldn't want to try his camp, but Westernrvpark however....

RE: Number Of Hours?

For me, it would depend on the value and location of the site. Not too many places I would work a 40 hour work week for a freebie site. But Bluewater Key would likely be one, for example. There would have to be some kind of WOW factor for me to, essentially, work full time hours for it. For a site that would cost be something like $500-$600/month out of pocket, nope... I value my free time at more than that.
