RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

I can't just let it go ether...estimates are that as many as 12,000 Canadians served in combat roles in Vietnam with 140 of them dying. As many as 40,000 served tho. And these folks volunteered into the US Forces. Canada was not involved. So..by all means, don't come if you don't want to. But once you begin to throw mud... Gary Haupt

RE: Cell and internet in Canada

There is free Internet all over the place north of 49. We were camping with some people from Australia the other day and they asked about Internet. I told them of three places that have free internet in the small community of only 2000 people just down the road. They hadn't even tried to use there phones on WiFi as they just thought it would work here. They drove to town they next day, found the free internet and sent messages home with pictures and Videos. They were very happy to know that FREE internet ( wifi) is aound, just have to ask. Soup. Yessir...most cafe's offer it and libraries and all BC Liquor stores have it, Save-On Food stores. It is very commonplace in BC. I can't vouch for other provinces or Yukon. Gary Haupt

RE: Roll call Alaska 2017

CDN money...Loonies and twonies..or toonies...are the one and two dollar pieces. Otherwise, we use the same names for currancy..quarters, dimes, nickels, pennies. Some..but not ALL machines in Canada will accept an american quarter. or dime. or nickels. Machines won't keep the US quarter..it'll just drop it into the recepticle. And yes, our bills looks different than US currency. https://www.google.ca/search?q=canadian+currency&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjY57vwz-3TAhUh_IMKHUFTAkEQ_AUICigB&biw=1600&bih=789 Gary Haupt

RE: Roll call Alaska 2017

Loonies and twonies...we don't have one and 2 dollar bills...we have metal discs...loonies and twoonies. Just like paper only heavier in the pocket. ATM's don't give 'change'..just bills. Most/all laundromats have change machines..you put in twoonie or loonies..or a bill and just like Vegas...get a handful of change back. Gary Haupt

Looking for a four wheel drive?

Nothing to do with me...but for those looking for a used Tiger? https://whistler.craigslist.ca/rvs/6128088924.html It's in Canada so consider the exchange rate if you are in the US. Gary Haupt

RE: The FORM

It just reads to me that some are looking for a way to circumvent Canadian laws, in order to be able to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights..rights that they do not have in a foreign country. It is my un-learned and un-asked for opinion, that trying to out-smart the border folks and the RCMP...is fraught with peril. I will tell you now..that if someone were to witness a person using a US licensed vehicle in what to them appears to be an unlawful act? They will call the cops and I am betting that 'someone' is gonna be really unhappy with the outcome. If you are going to Alaska? Ship your weapons. Or, go via the ferry system that provides a non-stop, no CDN border to cross, go right to Alaska and back. Gary Haupt

RE: Stealth Camping or Layovering

jefe here. I think i was the O.P. It's been a long time since I was run out of town on a self righteous rail. I do have these observations: 2. With the exception of Haupt, who seems like a serious guy, I hope I never have the pleasure of running into any of you out in the outback. jefe yeeeeeesssssssssssss http://i53.tinypic.com/r8tlaw.jpg]http://i53.tinypic.com/r8tlaw.jpg Haupt

RE: Stealth Camping or Layovering

Gary, it's still considered a 4x4 even though you have dually's (6 tires on the ground). 6x6's are three axle vehicles that all three axles have power to them .... Isn't it Wheels x Drive-axles? So a dually would be 6x4 and an Army 6x6 has 6 wheels and 6 drive-axles. LS See? Gary http://i65.tinypic.com/34fldtj.jpg]http://i65.tinypic.com/34fldtj.jpg

RE: Stealth Camping or Layovering

Gary .... then there are folks who have only one RV because they've chosen an RV that can do it all ... including boondock camping out in the middle of nowhere in a fully self-contained compact 4WD Class C. :C Phil..I am in a quandry here. Perhaps you can help. Yes, it is called a 4x4 or 4 wheel drive..but there are six tires on the ground. Now..I know what a 6 by is...but mine is not an X Army truck...so..what do we refer to mine as?

RE: Stealth Camping or Layovering

So..no wonder people living in the boondocking world get a hard time from so many on here. Check the thread in General..how many folks have 2 RV's. When you have that dichotomy there is no way to find common ground in that conversation. Gary Haupt

RE: US to Canadian dollars

Another tip. Ask for some extra cash when ever you are shopping and using your debit card. There is no service charge that you may get just using an ATM. We have spent months in the US and seldom needed to get money from an ATM. Good suggestion, this. Just not EVERY STORE does a cashback...BC Government Liquor stores do. Other could list some, too.

RE: Glacier Wwaterton,area

That would be the bear spray you buy in Canada, eh. They'll confiscate the US bear spray I believe. If I am incorrect, someone will mention it. Gary Haupt Gary, I've taken big canisters of bear spray across the border from the U.S. and never had it confiscated. Done it for several years now. But it is bear spray (I usually buy UDAP), not mace or anything like that, which I think they will take. Thanks for clarifying. Gary

RE: Stealth Camping or Layovering

I see that the King of Vagabonding is back on the road..Tioga George..although now it's Team Scampy. Can see the posting in General. I have modeled much of my methods after his. My day and night camps. Befriending people as I meet them. Yep...he changed my way of doing things. Gary Haupt

RE: Propane tank not really doing it?

Depending on the regulator, pressure could be increased some by removing regulator cap and screwing down on the diaphragm spring. Never heard of a regulator reset. Right? Gary Haupt
