RE: Canada Day

Happy Canada Day to you both. I hope you are enjoying this wonderful weather I arranged for you!

RE: All time record high June temps in the Northwest !

Nearly all businesses have a/c, but very few homes do. The thing is though that even though we are right by the ocean, when we do get warm/hot temps, the humidity is low, surprisingly, it's a dry heat!

RE: Planning Canada RV trip 2016

With the first leg of your journey, from Peoria to Niagara, being eastwards, I assume that this is the direction you want to go? This will take you through Ontario, Quebec and on to the East Coast. This is a great area to travel, very scenic and interesting, we just love Quebec City, but it does not have the spectacular mountains that maybe you are thinking of when you say "I would love the scenic Canada stuff...".

RE: Auroras

I like this site for pictures as it shows how visible the aurorae were all over the world. Link to Spaceweather.

Great Shot! Everyone catch the 'Alpine Valley' near the top?

RE: Closed RV park

Wonder what happened? We used to know the owners of this place, Brian & Carol from Brentwood Bay BC. It was just six sites that were put next to his house, is the house gone too?

RE: Auroras

I missed them by about an hour the other night. I think that the record for furthest south visibility is Singapore at +2 degrees!

RE: So Cal to Victoria (via Oregon and Washington)

For the last bit, you need to go as far as Anacortes and take the Washington ferry over to the Island, because they have a 'special' rate for RVs. BTW it is 'Vancouver Island', You don't want to go to 'Victoria Island' as that is in the Arctic!

RE: Beer!

I have never had anything close to the Creamflow Bitters that they sell in the UK. I have tried a lot of the craft beers sold here and nearly always find them too 'hoppy'. I tend to prefer the imports, but only if they are fresh. Failing that, then the mass produced IPAs seem to suit my palate, but I find that over cooling them will take away the flavour. I'm sure that the almost freezing temps that most domestic beer is served at, is just a way the brewers can disguise the putrid taste of many of the mass produced pilsners. Maybe one day, people will catch on to this scam! The other 'scam' of course is 'Light' beer, or in the vernacular, 'Lite'. Again, maybe one day, people will realise that 'Lite' beer actually means 'watered down'! "Nothing beats an ice cold Bud Lite" may be infrequently heard in the future!

RE: CMHC Update: Hike in premiums for <10% down payment.

When I first started working for the bank, the various departments of the bank were run by experts in that area. When I left the bank all the departments were run by marketing people! SELL, SELL, SELL !

RE: CMHC Update: Hike in premiums for <10% down payment.

They run the credit check, they should be responsible for lending insurance should they desire to have it. Really ?? and then they pass this cost on to the rest of their customers! User pay is a great philosophy. For our American readers, CMHC is like your Fanny Mac or is it Fanny Mae?

RE: Maybe you can explain it !

If you are able to explain the Moon pulling the water to cause a high tide on the side of the Earth closest to it, then be ready to explain why there is also a high tide on the opposite side of the Earth! After that, explain how the Sun's gravity comes into it!

RE: Important document...Magna Carta's 800th year anniversary

I note with interest that only a couple of points in the Magna Carta are still valid. Most have been rewritten or cancelled as times have changed and these original points no longer apply.

RE: Detroit to Niagara Falls via Canada, what to expect?

I agree to stay on the Canadian side, there is much more to do there, especially for kids. Don't forget to get medical insurance for everyone when they are in Canada. The provincial plans do not cover foreigners. Unlike your insurance our insurance usually covers wherever you are. I didn't know this, thanks. I was basing this on the questions on the forum about medical coverage when travelling to Alaska, but I am assuming now that this only applies to Medicaid or Medicare. Coverage only applies when travelling DIRECTLY to Alaska. BTW, our coverage does cover us anywhere in the world, but only up to the amount that is covered in Canada. As a result we only need to have supplementary medical coverage, when travelling to the US.

RE: Hawaii's Favorite Food!

Go to places where the tourists do not go and there is a lot of spam in Hawaii!

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

Being singled out because of geography, Oklahoma being close to Texas, reminds me of something that happened a few years ago when crossing INTO the US. At that time I wasn't a Canadian citizen and traveled with my British passport. "You have a British passport, you'll have to go in for further examination" "Why is that"-me "Well, Britain is part of the Commonwealth?" "Yes??" me "Pakistan is also part of the Commonwealth" "Um Yes???" "Well, we are at war with Pakistan!" "No you're not, you're at war with Iraq and Afghanistan" -me "It's all the same country!!" At that point, I gave up, but they did let me in after finger printing me!

RE: Ethanol is dirtier than gasoline?

One of the TV networks here did some testing on putting premium into cars designed to run on regular gas. Their findings were that there were no discernible differences with performance or fuel consumption, but that emissions INCREASED with the premium fuel. This kind of makes sense as the extra additives in premium gas are designed to slow the burn down, to take advantage of the higher compression and more aggressive timing. Without these features in the motor, I would imagine that the combustion is not complete so you end up by blowing it out your exhaust. I'm sure that many think that premium gas is more refined and more powerful than regular gas, the opposite seems to be true. However, I do remember a few years ago, for a time, they were only putting ethanol in regular gas and not in premium gas. I remember seeing signs that 'Our Premium is Ethanol Free'. This could have resulted in better performance from premium, as on cross country trips a few years ago, when not all gas had ethanol in it, we would definitely get better mileage with the non ethanol tank fulls. This is not he case now as ethanol is added to all gas to increase Octane. I still think now though that regular gas has more BTUs than premium, but someone can correct me on this.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2015

pet peeve? gas stations that don't convert currency. $100 ($110 can), buy $50 in gas and get $50 in change, they make $10 extra. GGGRRRRR Are you kidding us! What do you think would happen if I tried to buy gas in KC with a Canadian hundred dollar bill?
