RE: Border News

Talleyho69, sounds like a political statement to me between countries! You make your money in the US, but want to live cheaply in Mexico and probably not give up your US citizenship to insure the accrual of any other benefits. Surprise!! You have to pay taxes.

RE: Boondocking Water Question

Sandia Man -- X2. I love my Oxygenics! My husband installed shutoff valve; I just twist on the knob below the shower head to lower water flow to a trickle, hang shower head on the hook, soap down, remove shower head from hook, turn valve knob and rinse. What I particularly like about the Oxygenics is the water mixing with oxygen from the shower head which gives more water force while rinsing even though water is only entering the plumbing at around 50 psi.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

Moisheh, I'm having trouble with your logic here. If you read it; the trilateral agreement among Mexico, US, and Canada sets the basis under which the northern and southern borders of the US, Canada, and Mexico should close or open; all three countries agreed and signed it. Mexico has definitely breached the agreement; Mexico is OPENLY issuing permits to tourists who want to cross the border between US and Mexico. Why shouldn't US be POed at Mexico? They broke the agreement. So now you think the US should open its southern border at Mexico and let the people back into the US who went down to Mexico under a "breached" agreement. As far as diplomacy among three nations, Mexico cannot be trusted to sign agreements in good faith. At least Canada and US are consistent under the agreement, except there should have been a "meeting of the minds" before Prime Minister Trudeau made his border announcements.

RE: Skidaway Island SP GA upgrades

And it's not all that far to Tybee Island, too. You may just want to climb a lighthouse in Fort Screven section of the island.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

Sidehill, so far, the powers that be has indicated that the US wants no part of a uniform vaccination identification program among countries. In addition, they say it would be too hard to police and gain cooperation from other countries. Sounds good though in an ideal world.

RE: Possible Canada boarder opening mid August

Crowe, X2 on being hopeful, but not much more than that. Canadian friends want to cross the border into US around October, but I couldn't give them much encouragement. The Prime Minister's words in the article sound positive, but I tried to find some corresponding words from the US Department of Homeland Security; the only thing I found was that the US border is closed until July 21 and may be extended. With some of the border states to Canada with low vaccination rates and preferring to adsorb disinformation regarding vaccines rather than scientific information from the Center for Disease Conteol (CDC), this situation creates a breeding ground for the Covid Delta variant. If those particular states depend heavily on cross-border Canadian commerce, opening the US border adjacent to these low-vaccinated states would be a reward to those states; our US agencies are going to have to employ some "carrot and stick" game to get them to the pharmacist. As an example, the state of Ohio offered free college education lotteries, and the young people crowded into the kiosks to get their shots.
charlestonsouthern 07/16/21 06:13pm RVing in Canada and Alaska

Just noticed on CNN that Ohio has banned schools and colleges from requiring new and returning students to be vaccinated before they come to campus. No doubt, I would jerk my kid or grandkid out of those schools in a New York minute. So far, the University of NC at Chapel Hill has required the vaccinations for in-class learning and sororities; my granddaughter (and her family) is so tired of on-line classes and paying the same tuition whether in class or not. Some states need to get their act together for the sake of our children.
charlestonsouthern 07/15/21 11:23am Around the Campfire

BCSnob, based on the analyses you laid out, if parents are in charge of their children and want what is in the best interests of their children, why would these parents not get vaccinated themselves and have their children vaccinated above age 12. However, as yet, we know that the FDA has not approved a vaccine for children under the age of 12. But parents can assist in protecting those children by getting vaccinating themselves. In addition, were parents better parents say in the 1950s than they are today? I can remember standing in line outside of the school library at various times to get a smallpox vaccine and a polio vaccine, for example. Children were removed from the classroom who did not have a parents' permission slip for vacciines and taken home by "the then" truant officers to speak with a parent as to why their children were not to be vaccinated; if the reasons were not adequate or logical, the parents' names were turned over to state child services for possible child neglect and could possibly have the children removed from the family home. Just having a hard time understanding parenting these days or does it exist anymore to protect our children, who are the future of our country.

RE: Cripple creek/Pikes Peak

Fordlover, your kids would certainly love a visit to the Air Force Academy. Call ahead to determine if you can get on a tour. Of course, the majority of the cadets don't return until fall and the cadet parades on the grounds would have been enjoyable.

RE: Pics from our Alaska trip

Crowe, your photos are wonderful!! I'll play them over and over in my mind just before I fall asleep--it's nature at its best with the babes with their mothers. Very frameable photo art.

RE: Canada barring folks still

Mockturtle, totally agree. And the NHL failed Lightning, too--by not completing or securing the agreement between US and Canada and covering it up to the Lightning team. There should be some retribution to the NHL committee by the team players. What was the agreement for Canadian families to come to the US and under what restrictions to attend games? Was that a coverup, too? The NHL is the main culprit here; these games should not have been played; time to change sitting members of NHL with some honest people. Yes, I believe it was intentional!!

RE: An Embarassing Moment in a Walmart Parking Lot

Mexico Wanderer --- Wouldn't it have been cheaper to visit a Walmart men's clothing section and purchase a couple of pairs of new shorts which fit?

RE: Kings Bay Sub Base

Dutch and Mgirardo -- All I can say is there is so much to do in that area. However, take plenty of bug spray. I was born in Brunswick in the late 1940s when Dad worked for the Port of Brunswick, and we moved to SC when I was three years old after he changed jobs. There were so many friends the family left behind, but we returned often for visits. I enjoyed St. Augustine the best with the big Fort facing the ocean, and seeing the oldest house built in the US by the Spanish. Trolleys run up and down the streets, and you can get off and on as you wish. Get your gas or top off your gas before you roll into Florida from Georgia. It's cheaper in Georgia. We drove I-95 South about four weeks ago heading to Orlando and stopped off at the Kingsland, Georgia exit to fill up; the station we wanted was across the four-lane road from the exit, so we cruised on down the four-Lane until we made a U-turn. Bad decision, didn't see the "no U-turn" sign; therefore, we were stopped by a very nice police officer from Kingsland; she, of course, asked for license and registration, but I reminded my husband that both of us had to volunteer our concealed permits to her by law, whether we had "it" with us or not. She ended up giving us a warning ticket and said have a nice day, and we went on to the gas station. So, as you are pulling off into these towns along the interstate in South Georgia, watch out for the town policemen.

RE: Militarization of Aduanas

Talleyho, I was a young lady of the 1960s in the US; what was popular then and preached to you was "zero population growth." The birth control pill became popular around 1965, but the mothers sent their girls off to college with a compact of those pills in their purse against the advice of the church. However, parents then required their daughters to go to church colleges for protection and lots of rules, while the sons could go to rough and tumble football colleges. So, there I was at a church school with what was called "contraband" in my purse; very hard to get refills that way!! In Mexico the church is bound so tightly within the family unit; I would say that the family would think it a sin as per the church if artificial birth control was used within the family. Thus, the likely result would be many, many children which, in turn, among poorer families could perpetuate poverty because of the church's advice on birth control. When a Mexican family immigrates to the US, they bring the church and their practices with them; and, therefore, the sharp increases in the US population are the many children encouraged by the church, baptized as infants, and names entered in the church registry. No need to speak the name of the church denomination; if you know anything about Mexico, you know the name.

RE: Generators!! Yes YOU!

Never camped on BLM lands; however, I thought the point of camping on those lands is to live off the grid and away (far, far away) from other campers. The poor guy who has found such a Utopia and already set up camp far away from other people should not be bothered by campers who are determined to camp so close that they should be in an RV park. Ask Matthew McConnahey (spelling) while taking a break in his Air Stream after finishing a movie; he said he just walks around his camp in the desert naked just to scare other campers away from setting up camp near him. He said it works!! Other campers think he's crazy, nothing but a beard and his birthday suit.

RE: Diesel fuel at Card Locks across Canada

SideHill, you made me laugh when you said "one wife is enough." This is off-subject, but when my baby brother was working under contract for the Saudi Royal Air Force, he was checking in with Saudi Arabia's immigration and the Saudi employee noted on his paperwork that he only had one wife and said sir, you must be very poor; Chester said "one wife is enough." That was the first time I found out that numerous wives means a show of wealth to an Arabian. Different strokes for different folks!! Ha!

Canadians allowed across US land border for vaccinations

On CNN last night (Chris Cuomo), it was announced that Canadian citizens are allowed (via an agreement between Canada and US) to cross US border to be vaccinated; I've said this all along, and it should have happened a lot sooner in order to help Canada speed up its vaccination schedule to outrun the Covid contagion. In addition, Chris said a lot more vaccine is being pumped into Canada. The only thing left to be stirred into this recipe is a gung-ho corps of people out there ready to cover the country with syringes in heir hands. I may be seeing my friends back in Myrtle Beach sooner rather than later. We have greatly missed you.

RE: Las Vegas

Why rent a car (especially at today's prices) when taxis in LV are so cheap. Just rent a car when you are exploring for the day outside of LV.
