RE: Exchanging currency

Is it cash or a cheque? If a cheque and you are not exchanging it a bank where you could cover it if it were returned, they would probably put a several day hold on the funds. If cash, they would be taking a 'Source of funds' statement from you. I have never heard of that company.

RE: Customs Stories

Not a specific incident, but a few years ago, when going through customs at the airport, the standard question was "Has anyone put anything into your case without your knowledge?". It was a ridiculous question! I was always tempted to say that if it was without my knowledge, how would I know, but resisted and just said "No" . Now I think they have added "Is it possible that........"

RE: Ahh, the exhileration!

Even though we live in the Great White North we always drive our old Mustang, year around, with the roof down.

RE: My Way to Alaska

Our neighbour in Chilliwack, Gordy, had worked as a paramedic in the Yukon and had lots of stories. They were driving their ambulance through a small valley on a nice clear day. They saw what they took to be an Airstream trailer approaching them way farther down the valley, but on the same road. They then realised that the trailer was actually on the other side of the valley, but there was no road on the other side. By this time they could see that it was not an Airstream as whatever it was, went silently past them, just above the trees, on the other side of the Valley. The other story was of a friend of Gordy's who was a pilot. He told of a flight he made in which he claimed that it appeared that a mountaintop had disappeared (!) and in its place was a huge complex. He radioed it in and talked about it when his flight was over. A few days later he received a visit from the 'authorities' who warned that if he continued to talk about this, he would be considered delusional and would lose his flying license! Not sure I could accept these stories, but would be interested if others had heard similar stories.

RE: My Way to Alaska

OK, Joe, the clear night eliminates the Moon rising behind the clouds and a bright aurora as it was non directional. How about the extreme dark adaption that I have experienced myself at a 'Star Party', 6000' up in the Okanagan Valley with no artificial lighting visible? (As you can see, I have an interest in all lights in the sky!)

RE: My Way to Alaska

I find your sighting interesting Joe! Was it clear? If it was cloudy, could it have been the Moon rising? Could it have been your eyes super dark adapting, that can happen when people are camping well away from artificial lights?

RE: Trip to Alaska

Snag! That's a famous place.

RE: North and South Dakota

Sounds funny....going "down" to N. Dakota! Reminds me of how in Detroit, you drive DOWN into Canada! I can also remember being in a bar in Shelby Montana, on a cross country trip to visit family in Toronto, and being unable to convince any of the locals that sooner or later, I would have to cut SOUTH to get to Toronto! No, they all said, they were adamant that I would have to head NORTH into Canada, and I would surely never get there!

RE: Thanks to Cadbury for the help

I'll try this again! Growing up as a lad oh so long ago, I was used to Cadbury's being made in Bournville, just outside Birmingham UK. Then when I came to Canada, I was surprised to see Cadbury's and other British chocolate like KIt Kat. It was still quite good but didn't quite taste the same, and I can remember still getting my Kit Kat from Britain. We could buy Cadbury's chocolate from Britain here though. Over the years however, things have changed. Cadbury's has changed hands several times, it can be made all over the world. The recipes have changed, it no longer tastes the same. :(

RE: Eastern Canada - Diesel and DEF availability??

I think my two favourite 'groaners' have been asked on this forum. "We are going to Canada for the first time. Is the 401 Hwy, that goes past Toronto, a good road, or is it a narrow track that winds its way through the wilderness?" It's the busiest road in the WORLD! "We are going to Canada for the first time, do we have to stock up with everything before we enter, or do they have grocery stores there?"

RE: Quite the storm!

Hope the owners of the cars up front washed them down real good with fresh water as soon as they got ashore. I wondered if they even told them! The way that one car was floating around it could have easily smashed into other cars. I thought it was odd too that I went back to KOMO's website to get the original video and it had been removed. Maybe at the request of WASHDOT?

RE: Quite the storm!

Yes thanks. Wonder how I did that/ I did it again and the 'old way' came up so it should work!

Quite the storm!

This was a video that originally came from KOMO News in Seattle. It was from one of the Washington Ferries that cross the normally quiet waters of Puget Sound. FF to about the 2:20 mark. Clicky

RE: Newfoundland

Read the comments on that video! It's NOT the NFL ferry, it was taken off the coast of New Zealand.

RE: Just a warning

Yes, I'm pretty excited about it too! I just love those light Spring and Summer evenings. As for the disturbance in your sleep patterns, you must find long trips really bad crossing those time zones!

RE: Signals on freeways

"As a RVer they can put their roundabouts when the sun don't shine. None that I have been it can handle a large RV. They may be OK if your driving a small car " Around these 're parts, I've seen DOUBLE tanker trucks whip around our local roundabout with no problem at all! Maybe you need more practice! ;) Or maybe we can send some engineers down there to show you guys how to build them properly! ;) Or both!

RE: Signals on freeways

They have three lane roundabouts in the UK. Try going round one of them the wrong way around, shifting gears with the 'wrong' hand, and trying to decipher the bi-lingual road signs! But they work!
