RE: Winterizing

Winterised ours in 2019, and never used at all due to pandemic in 2020. So lasted 2 years. This year only used in our province for 12 nights sadly so we didn't dewinterise the washer/dryer. All was well for the 2 years but this year we did run more antifreeze (year 3) through the washer as well of course winterise everything else and pour down pee traps. Put plenty in your toilet for the seal and cover the bowl with Saran Wrap to avoid drying out too quickly, and all should be good. If you feel uncomfortable though just flush through with more AF this year and of course all U bends/traps.

In researching for insurance at a reasonable rate for reasonable policy coverage, and reputation of paying out "if" needed, we've come across HeyMondo. There doesn't appear to be even a medical questionnaire or anything to sign up for it? Can anyone that has used this company and ideally any of you that have had a medical claim (that's all we want it for is medical coverage), comment on how good or bad your experience has been. Any other suggestions male just shy of 65years old zero medical issues and female under 60 on diabetic oral meds (zero insulin) stabilised for many years through diet and exercise plus pills. Again both of us zero medical concerns otherwise. Thanks really would appreciate your sharing.

At the end of the day folks when it comes to risk, it is everywhere in our every day lives we just all chose to take what paths we do with what odds work in our favour we personally feel at the time. I for one am pleased to see that the USA is opening up for Canadians to go down there. Absolutely being in our MH apart from Groceries and Gas Fills (both of which we do anyway being ultra careful here in Alberta personally ourselves and limiting other exposures), I feel we personally are safer than most both for ourselves and to others. Where some heavier spread and exposure, could come into play is those that cross the border once or twice a week for a few hours to buy cheaper gas and other items being border towns, and there were a lot of Canadians pre-covid that did just that. Those in cars that are travelling for sure will be exposing to more services such as restaurants, hotes/motels where it's harder to be more careful on exposure. Pianatuner I appreciate genuinely and see your thoughts and concerns but what is confusing me is that when I compared the charts a while ago: Canada at I believe 73%+ double vaccinated (the highest), UK in the 60's double vaccinated and USA 56.8%, you look at and compare the hospitalisation and icu number charts Canada's looks waaaaay worse over time, than those countries that have less double vaccinated. You say Sask' is the worse in Canada yet Alberta has just gone through being the worst of the worst according to all news outlets, as they brought in Vax passports to all non-essential businesses and are bringing in QR Codes only from 15th November. A lot of this is not making sense to us here, especially learning that a figure of 26 Deaths in Alberta several days back (we are having double digit deaths daily!) 5 were double vaccinated. Yesterday 38 deaths with the youngest in his 30's having no underlying conditions. So in a nutshell, there are tons of us that can't make rhyme or reason out of what we have been told from the get-go, an updated info by officialdom and what we are seeing in the reported numbers. For sure, everyone has to do what their comfort level is and has been said (ideally without derogatory comments!), go or don't go. It's your decision and your comfort level, but this is going to be with us for a very, very, very long time. Even with being vaxed, personally we are still masking, very much social distancing, avoiding unnecessary public exposure as much as we possibly can, sanitising till our hands are almost raw after touching, handling anything immediately (shop carts, gas pumps, elevator buttons, door handles IDs etc). That is our comfort level right now, but there are sadly many many others that think the vax is the be all and end all to carry on without thought of what we've all been trained since Mar 2020 to ideally do. I for one hope and wish that the US border remains open,(who knows how long it might last???) and am now planning come December or January when the initial frenzy dies down somewhat, to make a trip south to our cousins. Here's to a great Fall and winter season wherever we may end up this year.

There's going to be a lot of happy Canadians heading south this winter again according to the latest news released a good half hour or so ago. US to open Land Borders between Canada and Mexico to double vaccinated folks. More info to follow on Wednesday, so be interesting to see what testing or restrictions get placed on travellers. Wondering what the travel insurance costs for snowbirds and the amount of coverage if adequate will be moving forwards. Here's to a warmer winter this year for many. HWGJ

RE: What do you use for local travel once camped up?

Do our grocery shopping enroute as we travel from one locale to another. Usually parked remotely by a lake, river or stream for a few days and then move on. Don't toad in over 18 years. Use Uber very rarely (Las Vegas was easier than driving ourselves anyway), and rental car twice, other times walk mainly or public transportation. If something too far away we explore enroute or when leaving our current area. Not towing hasn't restricted us in the slightest that we can recall. Used to love biking but SI joint issues and saddle hurts with less padding LOL.

RE: Free overnight camping in small towns

Tomball Texas - 3 nights free. Vulcan Alberta up to 3 nights free. Just off top of head. There are some still around, albeit over recent years with cost cutting/irresponsible people prior they have diminished. Check out Ioverlander or Freecampsites, often find some in there folks have stumbled across. Most of ours listed have come from over a quarter century keeping notes from readings but ..... Yep there are still some out there, just not as many as years ago. Happy Trails.
