RE: Covid 19 warning

I was always under the impression that CA health was pretty good. Now I’m confused when JaxDad said: The driver said that while he waiting in the emergency reception area a family of 6 came in showing obvious symptoms of being sick and were seeking testing, they were told it would be $200 per test, plus, plus, plus whatever else they could charge them. So COVID tests aren’t included??? Dave

RE: Leaving dog at campsite

...in asking neighbors we've never had anyone say they heard anything. I'm sure it's very dog dependent. Ours is fine alone in the motorhome. ^^^ X2 ^^^ Dave

RE: Camping with my dog

As a dog owner I always report campers that leave their dog behind in the camper for the day.Dear Mike, maybe you should have mentioned the barking part the first time around. Dave

RE: Camping with my dog

As a dog owner I always report campers that leave their dog behind in the camper for the day.Hmmm... maybe a little MYOB is in order here. As a multi pet traveler, two labs and a Maine Coon, we have no issues leaving them alone in the coach. We know they don’t bark, well not sure about the cat, and they are safe. Having a mosey-body snooping around them would certainly make them, and me, uncomfortable. Dave

RE: Pls respect Canadian laws

doubt you went from Fl to Nantucket, non stop without any contact with others or their property. Fuel for travel, replacement of perishables all become issues... Did you not stop in any of them for food or fuel? Fuel and to walk the dogs, period. Both very much easily distanced from everyone else. The CG we stayed in (until they were all closed and we slept in rest areas) were contact-less check-in and everyone kept to themselves. When we got to the ferry we had contact-less check-in and were asked not to leave our vehicle. Dave

RE: Pls respect Canadian laws

Well... "Were they only food shopping for while they were "attending" their seasonal property?"... this is part of the problem. When we came home from Florida we didn't go shopping for 14 days because we cared about those we would be exposing to whatever we may have picked up in our travels through the entire East Coast. Food shopping is not quarantining, no matter how you look at it. Our friends stepped up and delivered things we needed to our home. IMHO these folks should have made arrangements to have supplies delivered or simply stayed put instead of putting others at risk. Dave

RE: Canadian Snowbird Future

At the risk of offending my American friends, this is what it's starting to feel like up here https://www.mexicocaravan.com/border.jpg height=480 width=640 :B :B. No offense taken! Dave

RE: Canadian Snowbird Future

Statistics really are wonderful aren’t they? Go look up what the working class on Nantucket pays in rent because they can’t afford to own but still need a roof over their heads. Who the do you think keeps everything running for the people that own your statistical multi-million dollar homes? I’m not getting into a p****** contest with someone who thinks they can sit 1000’s of miles away and quote stats from the Internet. It’s becoming obvious why Canadians would rather keep the border closed! Dave

RE: Canadian Snowbird Future

What would be your "cohesive national response"? The needs and resources of people who, like you, reside in Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are vastly different than a 7-11 clerk in Alta, Oklahoma. You might try living here before you start making statements like that. You are clearly convinced that everyone on the Islands must be wealthy, when the reality is that is far from true of the year round resident population. On top of that many of our workers work seasonally (80 hours a week in season) and therefore still haven’t been able to collect their unemployment “bonus”. As for a cohesive plan, the governors of most of the New England states plus NY and NJ agreed early on to work this problem in concert. Have you looked at a Covid map of densely populated areas recently? So far the open slowly but surely seems to be working far better than “hey everybody, the heck with the virus, let’s get back to work.” I guess time will tell. Dave

RE: Canadian Snowbird Future

The whole thing smells weird because it is weird. We live on an island 30 miles off the US New England coast. After a dozen cases the locals went super careful and shut down most everything and for 5 weeks we had zero cases. Then the tourists started, many not being the least bit careful or respectful of others, and now 5 cases in a week. We’re not worried personally because we are vigilant, but we know people who just believe “most” don’t get too sick so they are less careful. Not having a cohesive national response is troubling, we’re just glad the northeast US is mostly on the same page. Dave

RE: Leaving tow bar connected to MH

We traveled quite a bit with the bar attached and folded up. It caused no problems and was not in the way. When I finally removed it, I needed some penetrating oil and a big hammer. Exact same thing happened on my first class A. I now use a receiver bike rack on my class B and I lube it well because I leave it on for 10 weeks in the winter but then pull it off when home. Dave

RE: Class C vs Trailer for Cross country with family? Help

Don’t forget to carry a solar generator for your Rv I found some options ***Link Removed*** The planned trip will have him driving several hours per day...shouldn't need extra generation beyond the alternator.:b. That is spam advertising from someone who joined today. Dave

RE: Who do you use for Insurance?

We recently shifted everything to Mapfre insurance. Tough to get home owners on an island and tough to get an RV covered Massachusetts. They did both saving us almost 3 grand a year from our previous policies. Dave

RE: Required signing waiver of responsibilty

I guess you wouldn’t mind if the roofer changed the type of shingles after you had signed a contract with him. If the OP hadn’t paid in full and created a contract with the park I would agree, but they are changing the contract after the fact. This assumes there is no fine print on the reservation form saying you will be asked to sign a release. Dave

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

Amazing how many people don't bother to read the entire thread before posting their learned opinion. The OP has stated a number of times he does not live in an HOA :(. DAve

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

They tried to institute this in a town where I used to live. It was a beach town and boats were okay in driveways but some people didn't want RV's. Luckily I was an elected councilman at the time and lobbied against it (pointing out that boats ARE recreational vehicles) until it was dropped. Dave

RE: What "NAME" can you call that Class B?

... there's nothing that will run an RV A/C other than shore power or a generator. Oops. You might want to take a look at what people are doing with Lithium batteries... Winnebago running AC off Batteries for 12 hours. Then they add a UHG and charge back up while traveling the next day. Dave

RE: Week in Maine. Where would you go?

Next time we head up towards Acadia we are going to check out the Schoodic Peninsula part of the park Schoodic Peninsula in Acadia. Dave
