RE: BC Hwy 99 Camping?

There is one, along the way..Porteau Cove. http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/porteau/ Very popular, so book as soon as you can. A caveat...you gotta like trains. You say #99...to where? Gary Haupt

RE: Norcold circuit board multi-pin wire terminal

My suggestion...call Norcold and talk to an agent (get their name). If nothing else, you can say you called and got such and such information. After that, do you have an RV shop you like? If so, go talk to the technician about doing the wiring, etc. See if they run away in horror, or snap their fingers. Gary Haupt

RE: Boon docking Near Lake Louise in Banff NP

Well now....it so happens I have Boondocked up in the Banff area. No, not IN the park, but there is a place.......if you were to Google Ghost Lake, Alberta.... As for Jasper...BC has a couple pretty nice offerings out of the main Jasper area. One is Lucerne but a couple more are listed as well. http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/parkpgs/mt_robson/#VehicleAccessibleCamping Gary Haupt

RE: Headed to Alaska?..Highway 97 closed

Hwy 97 through the Pine Pass is reported open, with pilot cars leading groups through single lane areas. Currently recommended for light traffic only. No overwidth, or overlength loads. http://www.drivebc.ca/#listView Good news, that. Fourth line from the top. Gary Haupt

RE: Hanging chairs from ladder blocking license plate

It doesn't matter what anyone else has had said to them, or not said...obscuring the license is not legal. Perhaps figure out a way to mount the plate on the chair legs. Gary Haupt

RE: Headed to Alaska?..Highway 97 closed

Looking at the Highways website...the info is not very helpful. Just closed until further notice. Nothing about a detour. Went looking and I guess no detour.... http://www.drivebc.ca/#listView Gary Haupt

Headed to Alaska?..Highway 97 closed

Pine Pass, north of Prince George is closed due to flooding. They have no idea when it will re-open, so..if you are heading for Alaska, hang a left at PG and head for Kitwanga and #37. Gary Haupt

RE: boondocking,,,what about your furnace ??

As you can see Luberhill, many answers and it can be very confusing. What I said in my previous post to you stands. One of 3 ways...plugged in, generator or batteries. Now then..batteries still need to be charged, especially after a night of heavy usage. You don't say what kind of RV you are using, so it's hard to comment. However, let us assume you have no generator and want to Boondock..no campground. As was mentioned by some, a propane heater is an option. It is always a bit of a conundrum. Some people dress in warmie warmies, some huddle around candles, some run different types of heaters...and so on. The biggest thing about cold weather camping is freezing your fresh water lines. If the temp is at freezing or just a bit lower, chances are you will be fine anyway. It's when the temp gets down into the mid 20's and lower that one has to be creative. You can insulate lines but forst you want to know where your lines are. Are they exposed. Some RV's..like the Triple Es are insulated well...some less so. So, you need to know what your exposure is. hahaha..pun, eh. Lots of folks camp in cold weather. It's a great experience and the places to go are many and quiet. ok..and having good ventilation. It reads counter-intuitive, but you need two vents (windows) open. The amount of moisture in the air from many different sources will amaze you and that moisture will wick to any soft place..upholstery, bedding, clothing...and man...you will be soooo cold and it won't matter how much heat you throw at the RV..it will be cold.

RE: ? about boondocking with furnace

As an Rv-camping person, you need to know this....your style of camping..in an RV, requires power in one of 3 ways. You go to a camping place that has hook-ups or you have a generator or you have a solar array and battery array that will support your needs. That furnace cannot run all night on batteries....whether you have one or 3...a full night with the furnace coming off and on will kill your power supply. Those of us that camp in colder weather learn how to deal with the wet/cold times. That learning curve starts here...if you were to post questions in General or even Boondocking, you will get guidance on how to deal with it. Gary Haupt

RE: Looking for a spot in or near Bend, OR

If I were you? Id hunker down in Eugene and wait out the excitement. That's good advice. I went ahead and purchased tickets for the Olympic pre-trials in Eugene. Hey, if you can't beat 'em, might as well join 'em. 100%....good for you. Gary Haupt

RE: Looking for a spot in or near Bend, OR

Maybe I should ask this...do you need or want to be in Bend over that weekend? If not...maybe you could throw out the anchor somewhere else? Where you coming in from? Gary Haupt

RE: Looking for a spot in or near Bend, OR

Oh man, no matter where you go, it's going to be busy. If you go east a bit on #20, you'll see Badlands Rock Trailhead...but I think that the crowds will be crippling. Gary Haupt

RE: Trip Advice - Vancouver to Moab

Raz...you mention Nevada. Ever been to the Sheldon Wildlife Refuge? Northern Nevada..there's even a hot tub up on the Virgin River Mine site. And of course you could do Speed Week on the Utah Salt Flats. Running around the salt flats is a hoot no matter where you go. Old mines and lost cities. Green River used to be a Minuteman Missile silo centre. Lots of wild and wooly stuff out there. Now it's melons, but the desert north and west is pretty wild. Gary Haupt

RE: Trip Advice - Vancouver to Moab

Kind of depends on trip duration. I have done the trip from Vancouver maybe a dozen times. If you only have a couple weeks, just boogie on down to Green River, Utah, quick as you can, and then start hangin out. If you have a month? Now your are talkin. Be aware...things are getting hot down there now and you have to be very careful about some things. If you go off-roading and get stuck or broken down...you need to know how to survive the heat. It will kill you dead if you don't do it right. Moab and the area...all very cool. If you want to touch base? hauptgw@gmail.com Gary Haupt Penticton

RE: Boondocking I-70 in Colorado?

Just Googl'ing the area..if one were to go to Minturn, off #24? And get down to BallPark Road at south end of town on Main Street, road goes left over the Eagle River and what looks like a big church on left and a truck parking area on the right. Gary Haupt

RE: Did you dump your refrigerator and pantry before crossing?

Its just amazing to me..that people ask for thoughts on the matter of food and crossings. They get all kinds of suggestions..(mine is always to go with nothing. That way...at least no hassles about that particular subject.) Then we have those that go with full larders and because they didn't get asked...suggest that everyone should do the same. Then those that have food, get searched, have food removed..and also suggest that a border agent is stealing it so they can eat it...good grief...You want no hassles? leave the food behind. You want maybe hassles..take it with you. How much clearer can it be? And yes, you are right...food costs are higher in Canada. Gary Haupt

RE: Long road trip question.

If I am reading your post correctly, the 5th has been parked for four years? If that is the case, I would suggest taking out for a good weekend road drive prior to the trip. Make sure all systems are working properly and so on. Gary Haupt

RE: Well, that wasn't very pleasant.

Maybe but if just one of those rounds are a self defense handgun round like a 9mm, you are going to be very very inconvenienced at best, Arrested and all your possessions including motor home confiscated at worst. Not worth it to me. I am retired LEO and I find bullets in some very out of the way places in my vehicles. TOTAL nonsense. Put away your paranoia and check the facts. Well, I did do some research and yes, what the poster says, can happen. But..its the American ATF, doing vehicle searches at the border, before getting to the CDN agents, NORTHBOUND that can cause the big trouble. Having ammo that is subject to an Export License. In fact, I have been thru these, at the Peace Arch in Washington State. I had just never connected the dots. Gary Haupt
