RE: taking cats into canada

According to the Canadian gov't site linked above a valid rabies certificate is required, a health certificate is NOT. Same for dogs; a health certificate is NOT required for your dog to visit Canada but a valid rabies certificate is. I feel sorry for folks paying to get a health certificate when it is NOT required to visit or drive through Canada on your way to Alaska. We've crossed the border many times with our pets. Have had to show the certificates only twice.

Missing traveller - Tennessee to Alaska on a motorcycle

Those of you on your way to, or returning from, Alaska, please keep your eyes open! This 74-year-old gentleman crossed into Canada on August 16, headed to Alaska on his black 1997 Goldwing tri-wheel motorcycle, Tennessee license plate ZB0984, towing a small Bushtek trailer. His family haven't heard from him since the 16th. His name is Jackie Dean Caldwell, known as Jack. If you see him or his bike, please call the RCMP at 403-647-3955 or contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

Hey, I'm writing some articles about RVing to Alaska from the Lower 48. Your input can help make my advice more worthy, if you have a minute to reflect and share. What do you wish you'd known before heading to Alaska? What words of wisdom would you share with other RVers planning their Alaska trip? What were your favorite activities in Alaska?

RE: thieves at Rondeau

Any wobbly bears around there? :B We never, and I mean NEVER, leave anything out at night as the scent of stuff attracts wildlife. Even the dog leashes attached to the outside stairs of the RV can attract bears who want to sniff and check it out. If not the bears, than some other wildlife will be curious. Simple solution seems to be to not leave anything out.

RE: Fishing in BC

The ferries designate a limited number of spaces as reservable. Other spaces are first come-first served for those that drive up without a reservation. The reserving just means you can confirm the time you'll be going and be there for that time. It does not mean the ferry is full, it just means you'll be able to get on a specific ferry if the line-ups are long. We've arrived early for our reservation and then been able to catch the earlier ferry because there was space. You do not get a refund on your reservation if this happens. This happened when we lived on the Island and were returning home from extended trips through Lower Mainland traffic, which made it difficult to be more precise with our timing. If someone reserved and doesn't show up, the spot becomes a first come-first served spot. Your reservation is specific for the time/date you booked it. If you show up late, you become a first come-first served client. There is no priority given to you because you missed your reservation.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Alternatively, you can visit Dawson City in February and drive across the Yukon River :B In Fall, the residents of West Dawson (west side of the Yukon River) must wait for the river to freeze and the ice bridge to be put in before crossing, and then in Spring must wait out the river break-up. With the Top of the World not open either, they need to stock up on supplies. Those who work in Dawson, need to stay in a hotel and wait it out. http://yukonsights.ca/images/DawsonCity/20120209_YQ2012_1014.jpg width=700 Or walk across http://yukonsights.ca/images/DawsonCity/20120209_YQ2012_1016.jpg width=700 In February 2012, I chauffeured Alex from the reality TV series, Ice Road Truckers, across the ice bridge at Dawson. Along with the location manager. Ironic, huh?

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

It usually means there's an RV caravan leaving town. The ferry isn't very big and if there are a lot of long RVs it can take only a few at a time. Haven't ever really noticed that there is more traffic going one way or the other.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Regarding crossing the Yukon River by ferry at Dawson...if we're going westbound over the Top of the World, we'll overnight at the Yukon River gov't campground on the west side of the river. Then we can leave whenever we wish the next morning without thinking about the ferry. As well, the paddlewheeler graveyard, which is a short walk north of that campground, is an interesting site to explore. There are no services at the Yukon River gov't campground. If you get there early in the afternoon chances are you'll get a nice site by the river though, which makes for a pleasant evening around the campfire.

RE: crossing the borders (food & fuel)

The origin of the fruit is not a factor. We've had California oranges taken from us when crossing from Canada to the USA. The agents don't care where the product was grown. They do care about where it has been.

RE: What to use to clean ear mites out?

I've used mineral oil. Apparently olive oil is also effective. http://pets.webmd.com/cats/ear-mites-cats

RE: Think I will keep mine a little longer

We figure we'll be camping with our 2003 fifth wheel until we die. Not even tempted to look at new models. We looked for three years before finding the perfect one for us. At 25' it has everything we need and it goes everywhere we want to take it. Perfectly set up for drycamping. Our last visit to a commercial campground was in 2010 when our dog became sick on a trip and we needed to visit the big city to stay near a veterinary hospital for a few days. I suppose we'll be old grey hairs towing a classic collectible fifth wheel when we're 80 years old.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

Left Alaska today :( via the TOW. Nice but challenging drive. Chicken to the Eagle turn off is the worst averaged 15mph. Then you get 13 miles of brand new pavement to the border which was a delight. The Yukon side starts out pretty good with mix of pavement and dirt but about 40 miles from Dawson it is a mix of good, bad, and ugly. Got passed by 3 large motor homes and ran into a guy who said he was doing 60 on some dirt sections. Don't know how they do it. Possibly some of them don't...I'm thinking they're the ones we hear the horror stories about: in the ditch, rolled over, off the shoulder, broken windows, busted hitch, etc.

RE: Win 8.1 recovery ... BIOS does not see HD on Dell

I have three Dell computers - two desktops and one laptop. One desktop is seven years old and the other a year old. The laptop is five years old. Only two hardware issues. 1. The RAM on the first desktop was flawed. Dell sent out a new chip at no cost to me. 2. The CPU fan was grinding on the first desktop during its third year. Dell replaced that at no cost to me. That first Dell desktop was on XP but I reformatted the drives last year and upgraded to Windows 7, and it continues to run well. Second desktop has had no issues whatsoever. Laptop crashed once when an update started when we were travelling and we left the area before the update was complete. Now I make sure automatic updates are turned off when we travel. I was able to get the laptop functioning for the rest of the trip by using the recovery drive and then reloading my photo software. When people ask me to help with computer problems, they're usually HPs or Acers.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

Before moving here when we were tourists in the north, our favourite month to visit was September. The fall colors are wonderful. The highways are quiet. The cranberries and blue berries flavorful. September 17, 2011 on the Haines Road with fall colors and termination dust on the peaks. http://yukonsights.ca/images/HainesHwy/20110917_HainesRd_045.jpg width=700 Top of the World highway on September 6, 2012 http://yukonsights.ca/images/ToW/20120906_ToW_0403.jpg width=700 Lunch stop on a piece of the Old Alaska Highway north of Kluane Lake on August 31, 2013 http://yukonsights.ca/images/AlaskaHwy_YT/20130831_OldAKHwy_024.jpg width=700

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

Well...the annual migration south has started. Not the birds or butterflies BUT RVs of all shapes and sizes with Lower 48 licence plates! On my trip to town (Whitehorse) today, I didn't see any RVs heading to Alaska. Only a non-stop stream heading south.

RE: Totally not RV Related but I need help from the brain trust!

Yup, you must have a personal facebook account of your own. Then be a facebook friend of the previous owner or like the business page, then the previous owner can add you as an admin. When you're ready to take over the business facebook page, you can then terminate the previous owner's admin rights. T'is good to have at least two admins for the facebook page, just in case something happens to one of them.
