RE: Towing a towed and a boat behind mh

Occasionally have "stings" near the Idaho boarder. It's legal in Idaho and there are some recreation spots off I-84 near the border where people try to "sneak in" for a short distance. Fine till you get caught. How does it become a 'sting' ensuring that the states laws are being adhered to? It's all well and good till there's an accident..then, when the goof's inusrance walks away, and said goof says "uh uh got no money"... Gary Haupt

RE: BC to WA With Only Enhanced BC Licence?

I see that 11am time is for the Nexus lane. Not sure what that means for RVers who might use another lane? Yes, it looks like a passport is the way to go for the various scenarios. (Another hassle to get one of those!) Especially now we have a new government that is likely to get us back to being called Canuckistan any time now, so the boom could be lowered without warning any time on all this stuff. (Yes I know politics is a no-no here, but it does apply in this case if you are going by the odds whether to get a passport or just go with the enhanced driver's licence while in the US for the next while) Sounds like you are not happy with Canada! I suggest you'all move south & solve both problems at the same time! Don't let the door hit you on the way out! Oh, & btw, that isn't politics, just pure racism. X2...see ya jack...eh. Gary Haupt

RE: Generators stolen --- UPDATE pg 4

I have passed on the info, as limited as it is, to the folks I know on The Slabs. The likihood is slim...but...one never knows and it doesn't hurt to spread the word. Gary Haupt

Sounds like you paid a high price for free camping. Of course, thefts never happen in paid sites, right? Gary Haupt

RE: Generators stolen --- UPDATE pg 4

UPDATE: We went to police dept to report and he followed us back to camp to take pictures of the footprints the jerk left. They led to an old cruddy Class C that ironically was gone by the time we got up this morning. Any chance you can recall anything about that cruddy C. There is a refuge not to far away...the Slabs...that will be a place that attract that kind of individual. I happen to know some folks that live there. They'd be happy to keep eyes open, if they had some clue as to what they were looking for. Gary Haupt

RE: anyone from edmonton alberta

Hi I am from Surrey bc I am looking to buy a dually truck off a car dealer and was wondering if someone could go and take a look at it for me. As you know dealers will tell you anything but the truth to sell something I don;t want to fly all the way there if it is a not as good as advertised . I will buy you a nice dinner for your time you Can pm me thanks Sorry that I can't help either..I am waaay to far away. But...I want acknowledge your offer to buy a dinner for the person that does take you up on the request. So many people ask for some kind of long distance help from someone that they will never meet and I don't ever recall an offer to compensate. Good for you. Gary Haupt
garyhaupt 11/20/15 10:29am RVing in Canada and Alaska

So, what is the procedure at the Canadian border if you are taking ammunition to Alaska? We are shipping a couple of guns to Alaska. Have the product in an easily reached location, tell the agent and be prepared for a full on inspection as they search for the weapon(s). And don't be cranky about it...experience has taught border agents that having one item, often leads to the discovery of the other. It has also be shown that it doesn't matter what a persons occupation is or was...that many people 'forget' about the weapon. Thinking about this..if you have a toad? what about dis-connecting, load the ammo into the toad and cross. There is far less to be searched in a small toad than the RV. If one was going to do this..you'd want to have the rv driven across ahead by minutes, of the tv. Get some distance between the two or they'll be tearing both apart. Maybe this is a bad idea...I am sure someone will point out the pitfalls. Gary Haupt

RE: Out of Country Travel Insurance - Travel to US

I hope that Portliz posts what was found as far as coverage. Note..I am not asking about the medical condition..just about the final answer for you. Gary Haupt

RE: How to keep jerry cans from freezing when boondocking?

Dan..I'd be inclined to keep that one jug inside at night and stop fretting about the rest. By the time you'll need the others thawed, the days sun will have done that, especially if you have a black tarp over them to get the suns warmth. KISS Gary Haupt

RE: Winter-Proofing your RV in cold locations....

You do mean for your continued trip, right? If so...go to a hardware store and purchase a small-ishy ceramac heater. You'll be parked in RV lots, right? Plug it in...open up all your cupboards to allow the warm air to keep your lines ice-free. Open up at least one window..yeah, I know...counter intuative..but you are creating mositure just thru breathing never mind cooking, washing, etc., and that moisture will make you feel really really cold. 22 isn't life threatening for you in your RV, it's just cold. You can't be just out boondocking ..that's parked without power, if you haven't prepared for that adventure. Your battery(s) will die a fast death As far as winterizing...it all kinda depends on where you are parking the RV overwinter. From what I have read, you plan to camp over winter. If you have power, just leave the ceramic heater on low setting with the cupboards open. Then, start asking questions about how to do the camping thing. It is great fun, you just need to learn how to do it. also..I have sent you a pm. Gary Haupt

RE: Out of Country Travel Insurance - Travel to US

portliz..I want to add...that any travel insurance company will move mountains to avoid paying out on a health claim, so, if there is the slightest opportunity for them to do so, they'll say no and then you are into a very expensive fight and flight. And, because you have posted openly on here, I'd be very very clear to an agent and have it all very clearly spelt out. Gary Haupt

RE: Passenger pickup at McCarren Airport with class A motorhome

From personal experience...if you can, do a PRE run in a car, so you know where to go. I did it, and the first time was a bit of a mess. I ended up sitting in the middle of the traffic, staring at the 'overhead bar'...with my tow, I couldn't back up. I was in a bit of a pickle for a bit, until I was able to scope out the right lane.

RE: Out of Country Travel Insurance - Travel to US

Portliz...by this point in reading, is it maybe not time to consider not going this year? I see you are now looking at a medjet policy, so that suggests there is an actual medical concern. Time to think with the head and maybe not so much the heart? Gary Haupt

RE: Where to park 21' rv in San Francisco

Some hotels have ground level parking. Any chance you could book into a place like that? Park the RV in their own lot. I am looking at one..the Motel Capri...that has a groud level open pking lot. Just a thought, but you should be able to find something like that. Hotel Mira Vista, Berkley North..same/same. Ocean Park Motel..no pix of paking lot but cool looking place. I'd call. Gary Haupt

RE: Disrespect along the Alaska Highway

It's always an interesting thing..watching how people post and what they say different times. 'Explorenorth'..some time go there was thread running on here about people visiting Quebec and some language issues and you ventured your opinion which was.."The French language is an interesting and important part of the culture and history of my country. It's an expensive nuisance in mine - but I seldom hear it in the Yukon or anywhere else, and I won't be going to Quebec." That was disresptful as well. I had thought then, that I should say something, but chose not to. Now..I don't feel quite so bound. Gary Haupt
