RE: Repairing aluminum roof

BradW has the right idea about patching hole in aluminum roofs for those large holes. For smaller holes I just use JB wield, it has worked great!

RE: TCM voting time

I'm sorry I am not going through all of those pictures, writing which ones I like and then manually having to type in my top 10 line by line.... TCM those two seem like smart folks and should figure out a better way if they want more engagement I opened two pages of TCM. one on the photo page and one on the photo number entry page, simply wnet back and forth entering my choices as I came to them. Good Luck c.traveler2 Thank you..c.traveler2

RE: TCM voting time

I almost was able to vote, but it said I have to pick 5. OP only has 3. :D Contestants are ONLY allowed to submitted 3 photos, this is only the first round of voting and you can vote up to 10 photos of any that were submitted. TCM changed their contest rules last year and not for the better. Good luck to anybody that has entered this photo contest. c.traveler2

RE: TCM voting time

It seems to me that your pictures should stand or fall on their own merits. I think it would not be fair to the other contestants if I voted for your pictures not because I thought they were the best but just because you asked me to. If you think other submitting photos are better then vote for them or not, your choice.

RE: TCM voting time

I kind of wish some of the photos would get weeded out prior to the voting process. 500+ pics is a lot to view (time consuming) and some are not good at all, like half the tail end of the truck or camper is cut out of the photo, etc. Some have a purpose being like that, others not so much This is the first round of voting to do just that, thin out the herd. I didn't like the change in the photo contest rules myself.

This is us driving my 2007 F250 hauling a 2002 Lance 815. Stop by and see Rhyolte ghost town near the trail-head for Titus Canyon.

RE: Advisability of late summer Alaska drive up

We were up there in August 2018, rained 15 days out of 19 days so watch the weather and be flexible about your plans.

RE: Costco vs Sam's Club

The DW and I are planning a trip to Alaska next summer. We are members of Sam's Club as they are the only wholesale club in our area. As I read trip reports from others on an Alaska journey, I can't help but notice that more people report shopping at Costco than Sam's. Is this because of availability of Sam's in the area? We could join Costco for the year if there is any real benefit to doing so. I've never been in a Costco, so I just don't have anything to judge this on. What say ye (or y'all)? Costco in Anchorage,AK and Grande Prairie, Canada sell diesel.

RE: Farewell to Canada

Our reasons had nothing to do with Canada or Canadians. Age, health, distance all came in to play. It's a 5000 mile round trip, I will be 78 in two months, British Bride just turned 73 and has some health issues. Out two little Bichon Frise Bear Killers are both 17 with health issues. Just not up to the trip. My 93-year old mom was in a nursing home and the possibility of having to return home has been very real for a few years. She passed away peacefully in July. British Bride will not fly, so that is not an option. Both of us feel that it was our God telling us not to make the trip. On a more recent shorter trip, wound up taking my British Bride to an Urgent Care clinic in Denver with viral Bronchitis, then cutting the trip short and returning GM GM That is a situation that all of us will be facing..staying healthy enough to travel...Best wishes..c.traveler2

RE: Where did Mooney go?

There's quite a number, there's one called "Truck Camping" where alot of the RV.net truck camper folks have migrated to. Actually, we've migrated to the group "Truck Campers" though a lot are members of both Truck Campers and Truck Camping Like many of the TC members I'm not on this forum as much as I use to be, kohldad are you using the same user name on the Facebook sites?

RE: Things we learned while driving through Canada to Alaska

The only problem we had with our cell phones in Canada was dealing with Bell, it's system would simply not recognizes some USA phone numbers, like my credit union. We have Verizon service. If your debt card has a MasterCard logo on it you'll be charged a 1% surcharge when using it outside the USA, it will show up as a international trans-action fee, MasterCard didn't do this in 2015 when we traveled through Canada but did this past summer, 2018. My Costco Card wouldn't work at any Costco in Canada but worked fine at any USA Costco stores, a mystery at hand. We were never asked about fruits or vegetables coming or going, just money, guns, pepper spray stuff like that.

RE: Boondocking tips on the way from Denver to Alaska

When traveling in the US we like to boondock as much as possible to keep the costs down. (I’m using “boondock” here to mean free camping, which would include Walmart parking lots.) I’m wondering about the availability of places to boondock if we drive from Denver, cross into Canada from Montana, head up to Dawson Creek and continue on the Alaska highway. Any tips on how to find free or low cost camping? I don't call staying at Walmart "camping" it's just a overnight sleeping spot, that said we just recently came out of Alaska and Canada and some of the rules at Walmart have changed. Anchorage: all 3 Walmart's no overnight parking period. Fairbank's: stay as long as you want Dawson Creek: we found a nice hide away approx. 10 miles up the Campbell gravel road. Whitehorse, Canada one night allowed at the Walmart..note there's a RV dump at the fuel station next to the Walmart. Dawson City,Canada Beautiful overnight spot up on Dome Road just outside of town, note FDS fuel stop nearest to Dawson City has the cheapest fuel. Plenty of pullout through the Kluane Lake area in Canada. As you approach bridges check for side roads leading down to the rivers found several good camping place that way.

RE: SoCal to Homer, AK trip in the planning

Hey folks, Planning on a trip up to Homer, Alaska from Southern California via Calgary. I went from SoCal to Halifax (and back) this past summer. Some quick questions: - Are there improved campgrounds along the route or best to boondock? - Best mosquito strategy. - Any "must see" stops along the route? - What's the longest distance between diesel fuel stops? - I'm ok eating at restaurants along the way, but want to also make sure that we cook onboard to maximize the use of the camper. Any links to stories are always helpful. Anyone else going? :-D Planning on 1-30 June. BG Read the TCTR postings right in this very forum, many good stories of the journeys into Canada and Alaska. If your a member of COSTCO, many of them sell diesel fuel (Costco Diesel) It will be the cheapest price wise, we paid 2.99/ gallon at the Anchorage,AK store. Many Walmart's have banned overnight parking in Alaska, all three stores in Anchorage have, while the Walmart in Fairbanks will let you stay forever. Finding a place to sleep the night away usual isn't a problem in either Canada or Alaska.

RE: Whitehorse Walmart is going to ban overnight RV parking

RE: Alaskan Weather

Unfortunately, I doubt Canada will be any better with all the smoke from the BC fires. Unless you go to Yellowstone via Ontario? :B Saw on the news, in some places, it looks like dusk at 10:00 in the morning. Depends on how long you plan on waiting before heading south. Maybe someone from BC can give you a sitrep? We're leaving to cross into Canada tomorrow, I may fly back up here next year for the Northern Lights.
