RE: from the frying pan....

But it's frikken COOL....at least looks like it in the pix..and then I saw the pricing discrepency, which really just pissed me off. I have this looooong BS anser from Amazon, too. I think the weather in Teaxs is sucky, too. The Loonie is in the sewer, having left the toilet. But..this morning on Haida Gwaii, the fog is burning off, thre sun is shining, eagles and ravens rip past the RV...so...I no longer concern myself with the Master Pan... Gary Haupt

RE: from the frying pan....

Oh yeah..I can make that arrangement..or get it when I am down in a couple months. It's just sooo aggravating. I have sent a query...I bet they are shaking in their boots now. Gary Haupt

from the frying pan....

man...this just rubs me the wrong way. I am seeing a really neat kitchen pan..Master Pan..compartmentalized frying pan...and on Amazon.COM it's 80 bux. On Amazon.CA it is CDN$ 214.63+ CDN$ 19.62 shipping. Gary Haupt

RE: Night ferry to....

Will you be going over to Moresby (Sandspit)? If so allow some time to check out Gray Bay rec area. It's beautiful there! Thanks, and yes, we are going to get over there next week. We'll be in Massett till Sunday morning, then wander off. Gary Haupt

RE: Night ferry to....

We are parked on the seawall at Old Massett this morning. Ravens and eagles screaming by. Anyone ever done the lanterns into the sky at night? Now THAT was cool. We'll spend the day here...Agate Beach and a nap...gotta have a nap. We are at this end of Haida Gwaii to join in a burial Cemermony as well as the Chieftenship. After Saturday we'll begin motoring about more. The Blog has pix to date, if that is your pleasure. Gary Haupt

RE: Night ferry to....

How long on the ferry? I imagine it can get rough. Yeah..Hecate Strait can be plenty mean. The sailing time is about 8 hours for the night sailing to Haida Gwaii. 6 coming back to Rupert. I guess they just kind of hang around QC before docking. Don't want all the traffic roaring in at 5am. Gary Haupt

Night ferry to....

Haida Gwaii. We are over for two weeks as of tonight. Have a Memorial service to attend, then a Chieftanship..someone in the family we know is becomig a Chief, then we'll just wander about for 10 days. Taking the RV isn't cheap..but then again, staying in hotel/motel's for 14 days and meals is even more and besides, we get to camp right on beaches. Just think of all the rocks one can collect..to be dragged home...all those rocks...geeezus. I am kinda hoping for a boat ride or two..we'll see how that pans out. Gary Haupt

RE: Volunteers needed in Washington State fire fighthing

When I worked fighting forest fires, training consisted of a step test to see if we were in shape, and a few minutes talk about stuff like, if the fire catches you, go down into a draw and lie in the creek. Newbie crews did mop up. We learned on the job. For people not in top physical shape, it still might make sense to call and offer your skills. They may need drivers to ferry crews around, and TC'ers would be perfect -- skilled at driving big, heavy rigs of FS roads. Some folks here may be skilled at timber falling or driving cats, etc. Me, I only herd cats. Training? ha..in '65 I was part of a seasonal crew and there was only OJT. Two close calls and I wouldn't go near one now. Gary Haupt

RE: Planning on Using the Cab Overhead Bed? We cannot use it!

A Google search provided lots of ideas for ladders for your RV bunk access. https://www.google.com/search?q=ladders+for+bunk+in+RV&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0CAgQ_AUoAmoVChMIxt371Ma_xwIVhVWSCh2IqQ99&biw=1600&bih=789 Gary Haupt

RE: Planning on Using the Cab Overhead Bed? We cannot use it!

My 'C' has a rear bedroom, so I never tried to get into the cab over. But I found a good use for the area. I removed the mattress and put a couple of rolls of the "sticky" stuff down. Then I found 3 plastic containers with lids where I store stuff that I rarely need. If I need anything from up there, I can use the ladder wearing shoes. One box contains an extra slinky. Haven't had to use it yet, but if you're a foot short... The second box contains electrical stuff. A 30A extension cord and 30A/50A dog bone in case the 30A hookup is worn. Used it once. The third box contains an extra white water hose and connector. I've needed that a couple of times. Now I have room in the rear storage area for the huge tool box that once contained full sets of standard and metric tools. But I've removed the metric tools (nothing metric on my rig) and anything that I don't know how to use. Which leaves me with a couple of hammers (easement tools), Phillips and flat head screwdrivers and a Good Sam Emergency Road Service card. It all fits in a small tackle box now. And I have a 17ft folding kayak in mine ,too. But, I bet that theirs has a galley in back, so no opportunity for a bed. If they have a gaucho, then they could rip that out and have a bed made in that rear corner. Gary Haupt

RE: Sooke to port refrew

We did the Pacific Circle route a few years ago and found the section between Port Renfrew and Lake Cowichan to be much better than the section between Jordan River and Renfrew. It was originally a logging road, but now it is all paved. Yes..paved as of 2011. I didn't know that...went looking. Gary Haupt

RE: Failing to Declare a Firearm at Canadian Border Crossings

"... we carried a rifle,supposedly to use while hunting ..." So you lied and now you brag about it??? Too many scoff-laws in this world IMHO! Yeah..I am kinda on-board wiith cruisersjs on this. What you just said sets off all kinds of stupid thoughts in other heads. Gary Haupt

RE: Nanaimo to Tofino

It's a super paved road all the way with some great scenery too. Follow the road to Port Alberni first, then on to Tofino. It is slow and twisty in some spots, but done with all kinds of rigs every day. Nothing to worry about. x2 And check out both Tofino and Uculet. Uculet often gets left out but they are both worthy of look-see's. And don't fall in love with Tofino...the real estate prices are out of this world. Gary Haupt

RE: Sooke to port refrew

Welllllll......depending on where you are planning to go...there is a road that crosses the Island, from or to, Port Renfrew. So, if you were going to cut a line across and just go the one way, I'd say sure. My remarks were if you were going to look and return same way. Check out the Pacific Marine Road...runs east/west. https://www.google.ca/maps/dir/Port+Renfrew,+BC+V0S/Honeymoon+Bay,+BC/@48.683636,-124.415261,11z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x548ed74c70bc7753:0x1b5d6ecf7516ca6!2m2!1d-124.422299!2d48.552966!1m5!1m1!1s0x548f2aa309a67b2d:0xd7ded8468fc678e3!2m2!1d-124.170934!2d48.815585 Gary Haupt

RE: Sooke to port refrew

That would dpeend entirely on your skill set and how you handle some pretty nasty turns. I have done it and...I'd do it if I was staying. If I was just taking a look then going back? The TV. Gary Haupt

RE: What did you do to your Class C MH today???

Let me list out my last month on my 99-V10.... Had to have a new spark-plug tapped in. A week later had all plug replaced to ensure they were all tight. Also one new coil. Full rear brake job. New muffler and pipes, except for the SS end. Undercoating of unit. Northern BC by the ocean..rust issues. New front shocks..Rancho 5115's On the 16th Sept...have exhaust manifolds off and new gasket and whatever else that brings. Gary Haupt
