RE: For those concerned about driving through Atlanta - a primer

I have driven through and around Atlanta annually for forty years. I can see no problem. Compared to the 401 through Toronto, driving I75 through Atlanta is a stroll down a country lane!

RE: Out of country travel Insurance - Update

I received my medical test results and nothing abnormal and no treatment required. When I spoke with my group policy insurer they informed me that because there was nothing found in the tests and no treatment suggested that I should count 90 days stable from the date of the doctors appointment when the tests were ordered. We will wait for the 90 days before we travel. This means no extra insurance for "unstable" conditions will be required. As mentioned in my previous post I did find travel insurance that would cover "unstable" conditions up to $150,000. I would have considered purchasing if needed. Would you mind sharing the name of the company which will cover unstable conditions?

RE: Canadians Avoiding US due to Gun Violence

When we first began to travel to Florida in the early seventies, We were warned to avoid travel at night and to avoid bars after dark. We try to stick with this plan and have had no problem in now over forty years.

RE: Canadians Avoiding US due to Gun Violence

My neighbors have wintered in Mexico for years. They fly down because the wife is afraid to drive across the States!

RE: Handling the Holiday(s)

We leave for Florida around the middle of Oct. Return to Ontario around Dec 1st. We usually wait until the Thanksgiving traffic has died down. Stay at home for Christmas, two actually, as my wife cooks a turkey for our kids and families Christmas day, does it all over again for her family the day after Christmas. Then, usually, we leave again for Florida on Dec 28th to stay until approx. April first.

RE: 8840 Form

If it is, as it appears possible for the US to tax ones world wide income, how do they, the IRS, determine what this income is? I cannot believe that they have access to income statements generated in Canada, Europe or elsewhere!

RE: 8840 Form

We are getting far afield from the 8840 form which was the original question. Crossing the border either way for work related travel is an entirely different matter!

RE: 8840 Form

Does anyone know of anyone who has been questioned or fined? I am thinking someone that you know personally. Not stories from the cousin of your ex brother in law!

RE: 8840 Form

I do not really understand this. If I spend four months per year in the US, do not own property there, have no income, earned or otherwise from America. Why should I be forced to fill out this form? I can see the tax implications if there is income, otherwise, what is the problem?

RE: What do you want in a long term RV site?

I would pay a healthy premium for not pets and no fires! Imagine, no stinky smoke filling your rig, no parade of pet owners walking past with bags of poo, this assumes of course that they actually pick up, many do not. What is not to like?

RE: Shrinking Canadian dollar

The talk about low priced US campgrounds is rather misleading. We are presently in a park in Michigan. The cost for two nights, with Good Sam discount is $109.80. Add twenty five percent for exchange, sort of pricy!

RE: Shrinking Canadian dollar

I fuels up my small classC , Ford E350, yesterday. The pump shut off at $150.00, guess that is all it will do on a Visa card. As it must be almost full, I did not bother to re swipe the card. Next fill up will be in Michigan as we head to Duluth Min then who knows where!

RE: Campground/Park-for-the-night

Many of the small towns in western Canada have low cost or free Rv parking.

RE: Failing to Declare a Firearm at Canadian Border Crossings

FYI You can only declare long guns for entrance into Canada, Hand guns can not be taken in for any reason, except LEO's in the line of duty. All hand guns (if you're traveling thru Canada) will need to be stored with a gun dealer in the states before crossing. Not true. There are rules to follow but most handguns can be brought into Canada. http://canada.usembassy.gov/traveling_to_canada/bringing-weapons-into-canada.html

RE: Advice for First Time Cruisers

I've never cruised - but if I was going to: I'd get a prescription for the scopolomine patches for seasickness. Dramamine makes me drowsy - scopolomine doesn't (and it works fantastic!). I'd bring several pocket-sized bottles of hand sanitizer. People pay big bucks to go on cruises and will go even if they're not feeling well. In tight quarters, viruses can spread quickly. You don't want to spend your cruise time in the "head". Non drowsy Dramamine is readily available. My wife uses it every day while on the ship!

RE: Retired, first time buyer

Pay no attention to the bigger is better crowd. We bought a /93, 22 ft class C in 2000. Still have it today. It has carried us all over north America, from Fairbanks to Key West, from Maine to Oregon. We have never towed or needed a car. I cannot understand the mindset of a huge rig that limits where one can go. If you want to stay on the interstate, take the Greyhound!

RE: Retired, first time buyer

Remember that there are thousands of generators which sit unattended from one power outage to another.

RE: Advice for First Time Cruisers

Make sure that your passport is not close to running out. I think it has to be more than five months from expiry.

RE: Advice for First Time Cruisers

We did a cruise on Oasis of the Seas. That has to be the ultimate. All others pale in comparison!
