RE: Open CG in Whitehorse - a little good news

“Might still be a tad chilly, but hey! It's a place to go!” I’m not in favor of any traveling this month and announcing the availability of this park may encourage travel. Lwiddis!! Just saying hello...we were thru Mojave a number of times this past 3 months. https://i.imgur.com/KoeIWv1.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/KoeIWv1.jpg Gary Haupt

RE: Plamosa Rd.\ Bouse

I think it is incumbent on people to remember, just because there are people out in the boonies...like Plamosa and Q, many people have no where else TO go. Their home is on wheels and they have be allowed to park, somewhere. Gary Haupt

RE: Canada border crossing

The Yukon government isn't drawing a line in the dirt with their 24hr wording. They know that 24hrs isn't enough time. But..it will allow an intervention if they find a traveler flaunting the trip..turning into a vaca drive. Gary Haupt

RE: CalTrans towing TTs

From Tiger RV....Just read in newspaper that a whole crew of employee volunteers are sheltering in place at the water desalination plant to keep it going. Food will be left outside the gate and they will be housed in rented RV's on the premises. Gary Haupt

Rock hounds/metal detacting and old bones

Do any of you k ow a Mike Martin, from Mad River, Ca.? He also does metal detecting and paleontology. Met him on the beach at Samoa Dunes, near the USS Milwaukee Memorial and has was kind enough to give me a band of metal he had just found on the beach, right where the wreck is. I have a buddy that will see what a great guy I am, when I give it to him. Gary Haupt

RE: US Closes Mexican and Canadian borders

A lot of people are simply sheltering in place in a foreign country. Unless you are old or have underlying health issues the risk is very low. A lot of travelers are indeed sheltering in place....and often that 'place' is their RV, as they head home...north or south...Most of us have health insurance and that has an end date for many. As much as many would like to just stay put, they must be practical and get home. Gary Haupt

RE: Canadians heading north...

I don't think anyone is America bashing, at least I hope not. Saying Canada was doing it 'right' is simply an observation...one that is not accurate. The CDN government is doing it's best, as is the US. Some of it is just different. We are still happily motoring along, enjoying the Pacific coastline...self-isolated and living life. Gary

RE: Something about having 4 wheel drive

WOW, when will it end? I see you have a winch in case you get into trouble, good thinking! Hope you make it back to Penticton OK. I don't foresee any further issues. My only gripe now is that the brew places are all closed. Gary

Something about having 4 wheel drive

Trying to get home to BC has proven to be a challenge, weather wise. The drive up 395 in California was good...then it went bad...the forcast on the weekend for Reno was snow then improving. We had some dinner and got all jumpy feeling, so left town Friday night. Went about 20 miles up the road..wake up to snow snow snow..and ice...and had that for 100k's..then Susanville..where the forecast had been easing by 11am...then, all of sudden..extension of late winter snow storm. And a road block by CalTrans and CHP, 10 miles west of Susanville. Got snow tires? as they are checking...and are you in 4 wheel drive? yup...4hi....Great...carry on. And another 100k's of huge snows and no traffic. Fabulous drive. https://i.imgur.com/FxnxTIZ.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/FxnxTIZ.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ZRFiRD1.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/ZRFiRD1.jpg Gary Haupt

Canadians heading north...

From the last government statement: However, there is an exception to this rule for people crossing by land. Canadians crossing at a land border will be screened for symptoms. Sick individuals will be referred to public health authorities on the Canadian side of the border, but they will be allowed into the country. Major crossings will have quarantine officers on site to intercept the sick and supply masks. "We know there are very many Canadians who are presently in the United States and are very quickly making their way home, and I want to assure them all, Canadians will always be allowed to return to Canada," Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said of people crossing by land. Regardless of how they enter the country, anyone coming into Canada from a foreign country must self-isolate for 14 days upon their return. Gary Haupt..mid California...motoring along....

RE: Cautions about Death Valley

Phil...the first 5 or so miles are rugged and then there are a couple narrow spots and that deep sand..man, I wouldn't take mine. If you really want to spend a day doing it, rent a Jeep. Be a lot cheaper than paying a damage bill. Gary

RE: Cautions about Death Valley

We were fortunate to team up with Off-Highway, a buddy for years, that has the Jeep and skills to make it all look easy. We spent two weeks with Brian this past couple months...into the Saline from the south end...off the Panamint Springs end...to the hot springs. Had lunch a and a dip. I am going to enter into the fray tho..about traveling the DV roads n trails. You are never..ever, alone. There is as much traffic on those remote trails as any I have ever seen. That doesn't mean a fool should just take off and hope for the best...that won't last long. You need to have a skill set and tools, and some basic parts. A person does need to prepare to be broken and parked for a couple days...meaning food, water and a tent. You don't have to get a sat phone. You don't need to get a caravan. You just have to have the smarts to know your own limitations. Here are two Blog posts... Saline Valley https://mrgwh.blogspot.com/2020/02/saline-valley-oasis-and-hot-springs.html Titus Canyon https://mrgwh.blogspot.com/2020/02/titus-canyon-in-death-valley-and.html Gary Haupt I so wish I proofed before submitting

RE: Best gadget buy in a long long long time

OP here..and I too have a chainsaw..a Makita electric for the yard, that is seldom used. This wee B&D sawzall was bought used for $50 off Amazon.ca and even tho I am using a non-wood blade, it does the job asked of it, just fine. I don't need to spend the 15 bux just to have a rip blade. As for having a chainsaw while out in the rv? I think people that do that have a wish for self-harm. There are few tools more dangerous than a chainsaw.I invite your perusal. https://www.hindawi.com/journals/aem/2015/459697/ Does that mean you're afraid of one? Or don't know how to use one? :h I carry a cordless chain saw for fire wood cutting. I have no desire to harm myself... :B Gary A great question. I have had some actual training is use of said equipment. You? I do not carry the needed safety gear in my RV to adequately protect myself. Do you? Chaps, proper boots, gloves, hard hat. So, with that having been said...no one sets out to harm themselves with a chainsaw, so far as I know, but armed with the knowledge of what can and does happen...anyone who shrugs and says that's okay, I know what I am doing..falls into the category of 'can't fix stupid'.

RE: Parts of our 3 month wander...

If you want to see the trip, so far....including the Synagogue in Sedona with our Israeli newlyweds. http://mrgwh.blogspot.com/ Hey Gary, I just spent a while looking through your blog posts for your current trip. Virtually all the places and sights were very familiar to us! You've hit some of our favorite areas in the west. We are currently in New Mexico, will spend most of March in Arizona and then April in Utah. Did you happen to get out to Muley Point off of the top of the Moki Dugway? Sadly..I did not. The sign that says 'Not Passable' in wet weather put me off. It was threatening to rain. I saw a Jeep/trailer going in tho. Hopefully next time will see me there. Gary

Wood cutting can be a dangerous past time...and I like a fire. https://i.imgur.com/Q8rHa1K.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/Q8rHa1K.jpg Gary Haupt

RE: Parts of our 3 month wander...

For those planning on the Goosenecks...you get there and realize how badly you want a fire...and there is NO wood. Make sure you get some prior. https://i.imgur.com/QHEa6qC.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/QHEa6qC.jpg Gary
