RE: Firearm deposit at border?

Kinda what I'm thinking...depending on what a gun store wants to charge to "clean". Gonna be a logistical issue..I want to hit Glacier NP on the way up or back, then through Bellingham WA and the coast in opposite direction. Then again, I should see what hurdles Canada puts me through to bring a Remington 870 20GA Youth model. It's a shotgun. Unless it has been altered I am pretty sure you will be allowed to possess as long as the correct permits are filed. Having said that...don't be just driving up to the border with it. Go to CDN websits, and get the right info. Gary Haupt

RE: Dry camping for night at Victoria Coho ferry terminal

It is behind a wire mesh fence and it's Victoria..of course it's safe. And it's right in the quiet area of the harbour. The most noise you will here will be from float planes and choppers, and they are out of service after dark. Gary Haupt

RE: Cooking while driving???

I use a Dutch oven in the oven. I prop a camera mono-pod from the door to the base of the cupboard opposite. Works like a hot **** and after a 5 hour drive? A nice slow cooked anything tastes mighty fine. Gary Haupt

RE: B.C. to restore ferry service on Central Coast

This has nothing to do with the election looming next year, of course. Placating the First Nations groups and tourists all in one fell swoop. Gary Haupt

RE: Ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles US Security Check

Z-Peller..I think the post about border crossings was at the Stewert/Hyder in Northern BC. There is no US presence entering the US, and one can go up the gravel road and back into Canada, again, no presence. When one leaves Hyder on the paved road..into Canada..there is a presence. And they can be a tad...tetchy. Gary Haupt

RE: Dodge 4x4 RV

Any chance you can re-post the pic? It's probably not a factory build. There are a couple kits around that folks buy and install. That or have a shop do the conversion. There are a couple in the US. Do a Google search for that. Gary Haupt

RE: There is ugly..and then there u-g-l-y

So... any kind of story behind this? Did you talk to the driver/ owner? No...It was parked at CDN Tire in Penticton. Later on saw it in the shop. Never did see the owner but it's a BC plate so maybe I will run into him. If so..I'll get the story. Gary Haupt

RE: Mobile hot spots

OP..in your original ask, you didn`t mention the need for secure. The only way you are going to achieve that is a data plan with your at home carrier. You need to talk to them and ask about their plans for travelers. If you post your carries name here...someone will have the scoop. As `pianatuna` has said...T Mobile in Canada has a plan but it changes Sept 6th. Your intro shows you in Ontario. If you are close to the border, perhaps go across now and buy a T Mobile at Wal-Mart.

RE: Mobile hot spots

If you are asking about free? McDonalds, Starbucks, Lowes, some Wal-Marts..maybe all, Home Depot, Safeways, Save-On Foods. Many libraries. If you are talking a laptop? I'd suggest investing 20 or 30 bux in a WiFi booster from Staples or The Source. D Link is good. It will allow you to get a stronger signal if you are out in a parking lot. Gary Haupt

RE: Old topic -- leaky roof

I had just written a whole bunch and realized...this is going to cost you just a lot of money, no matter what you do. If you can figure out where the leak is? Eternabond tape. Lots of it. And get it right..you can't just pull it up and do it again. Once down...it likes to stay down. Get a moisture meter from your local Lowe's or Home Depot. Check to see just where you have wet to where you have dry. If it's in your walls and floor? If it's just the back wall? You can buy stuff that paints on and stops rot and seems to harden up the existing wood. http://www.pcepoxy.com/our-products/wood-repair/pc-rot-terminator.php If you have done the moisture meter thing and it's walls and floor AND the back wall? Throw it away. Gary Haupt

RE: Class C motorhomes, Do they all leak?

Yes..they all leak..but, so do all houses if they are not looked after. One of the things to look for then, is a C manufactured using metal framing as opposed to wood. It's the repairing of the rotted wood framing that will cost the HUGE dollars. With a metal framed unit, you repair the leak, tear out the interior wall replace the insulation and put the wall back up. No rot to contend with. As for leaks...the clearance lights and the seams around the cap are the biggest culprits. DO NOT buy a C with a fabulous front window in the cap. Then the windows. Those can all be removed and re caulked by yourself or a shop. Then the roof itself can leak. Any place on the roof where it has got stuff into it..thru it...the A/C housing. TV and Sat cables. Vents..are all areas to check, but...again..they all leak sometime. Getting it repaired is always the key. Gary Haupt

RE: E350 Super Duty Triton V10

It'll be an exhaust manifold leak. The question is always..shall I fix it or not. And...it depends. It will allow more heat to escape from around the doghouse. The box, under which sits the motor..and that will be felt on the feet. However..there are two exhaust manifolds and they'll both have broken studs, and always the rear ones..the ones that are just a dirty nasty horrible job to replace. The Ford book says it's a heads off job...25 hrs per side. A good shop will get the job done from underneath but it is still a bunch of money. Like maybe $2,500 to 3 grand for both. I can give you the name of a guy in Vanderhoof that can do the job. He did one side of mine and ran out of time to do the other. I had the other done here in Penticton a month ago. Whoever you have do the job...they need to know what they are doing. Not get part way into it and shrug..and tell you they can't finish the job. It really is a mean, big job. And filthy. It has someone welding nuts onto studs and backing them out..maybe. Someone in Alaska should be able to get it done..but ask around. Ask a NAPA store who they might recommend. Or..just leave it and drive it the way it is. It won't quit on you. Gary Haupt

RE: Central Washington

Hey Phil...not 'new'..had them for a couple 3 years now. Aluminess custom bumper, Warn 12,000 and a set of LightForce beamers.
