RE: Border closure extended

The Canadian Snowbirds Association appears to be a good source for info on the ongoing border closure. According to THIS RECENT POSTING "This means that travel for tourism purposes will not be permitted at any land border crossing until at least October 21, 2020, but we anticipate this closure may well extend into 2021."

Magnesium versus aluminum anode rods

I couldn't get a replacement magnesium anode rod for our 6 gallon Suburban water heater, and put in an aluminum one. However, we notice that there's a terrible sulfur smell that comes back several weeks after the tank has been thoroughly cleaned with vinegar. When we used magnesium, we didn't experience the sulfur smell, and am wondering if others have had that experience. I'm a bit confused, because some folks say that there's the sulfur smell when using a magnesium rod. When we look at the aluminum rod, its diameter has hardly changed, but there's always white crud on it. I recall that the magnesium rod deteriorated a lot faster, but isn't that a good thing? Thanks in advance for any help.

RE: Manitoulin Island - Ontario - Boondocking?

Thanks Harley4275 for the link. Nothing on Manitoulin Island except one in Gore Bay, but it's closed until further notice, probably because of Covid-19. Pianotuna, thanks for the suggestion. Tobermory's lot is mentioned, but it's on the Bruce Peninsula. The ferry terminal at the south end of the island in South Baymouth isn't listed on any of the "free camping" sites. Lwiddis, we try to look for a sign that lists how long you can stay. We've seen some that say, for example, "Maximum Stay 72 hours".

Manitoulin Island - Ontario - Boondocking?

Just wondering if anyone has successfully boondocked on Manitoulin Island. Parking lots that have no signs prohibiting overnight, crown land, etc. Any suggestions would be welcome. Failing that, any advice on reasonably priced campgrounds would be certainly welcome, and thanks in advance.

RE: Savannah, GA or lower SC along I-95

We've used Ft. McAllister State Park in Richmond Hill as it's much closer to I-95 than most of the other parks mentioned. The drive into the downtown area of Savannah was quite pleasant as I recall.

RE: Tracking US travelers

This story is getting a lot of media attention here in Canada. This news item from Canada's Global TV network is just one of many.
