RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

It's the CBC, so it's got to be suspect. Lol...Any other conspiracy theories you’d care to share?

RE: Towing a 4500lb TT with an SUV

A newer Grand Cherokee will work perfectly. We towed our 5000lb+ trailer with a 2015 V6 for 10 000+km all over Canada and the US. We upgraded to the V8 a few years later and it was better for towing, but the V6 still did the job no problem. I don’t think you’ll find anything in your fuel mileage range. When towing we’d get around 9-12mpg depending on conditions with the V6. The V8 does better but not much.

Can’t get a reservation in BC or Alberta?

Hey, thought I’d pass this on if anyone is struggling to get a reservation in BC or Alberta this summer. There is a free site, campalert.live that will help. You enter the park you want, the date you’re going and how many nights you want and you’ll get an email when a spot opens up so you can go book it. I’ve used campnab.com which does the same thing but it costs money. This is free (looks like the guy who made it isn’t opposed to you “buying him a coffee”, which is fair) and works, I was able to get a site at Bow Valley in Canmore after it booked up in 30 seconds when reservations opened after the lockdown was lifted. Anyways, just thought I’d pass it on. Looks like they do national Parks now too.

RE: Campnab

Well I tried it out, got a monthly package and got a site in Jasper with power for 4 nights so I'd say I'm satisfied and that it works pretty good. It would be great to get Alberta provincial parks in this system too! Thanks for creating this!

RE: Campnab

I had no Idea things were getting that tough to get a site. We visited Banff/ Jasper 12 times and never had to reserve at anytime. My first time there was 1971 when I hitch hiked with a backpack,tent, clean clothes and a hair cut from Monterey. He he..... a doctor picked mE up in Portland and flew me over the Cascades in his airplane to NW Washington. Then Border guard gave me a ride to the trans Canada Highway. I can't tell you how fun it was in those days. Wow that sounds pretty great! I'm not sure you could get away with that these days. You can can get a site in Banff easier than Jasper, the biggest campground in Japser has been closed since 2018 so that makes it more difficult. Almost impossible if you want any hookups. Things have changed!

RE: Campnab

It searches campgrounds every few minutes to check for cancellations and sends you text messages to let you know if a spot opens up at the campground you are trying to find a spot for. Yeah ... I just tried Campnab, but it still doesn't offer what I most often want: Notification whenever a SPECIFIC SITE becomes available - due to cancellations - on your specific desired dates that you REALLY WANT but was already reserved on those dates when you first tried to reserve it. Campnab seems to be able to notify you when a specific campground has a previously reserved site anywhere in it that opens up - but NOT when a specific desired site in that specific campground opens up. For example, we want a specific group site in a specific camground that is very difficult to get in certain months - unless you reserve one year in advance. That is not the way we want to RV camp ... nor do we want tie up hundreds of dollars in reservation fees for months in advance before we actually camp. Thanks, that's sort of what I was thinking. You might just get a bunch of notifications about sites being available that you don't want or can't use. Thanks!

RE: Campnab

I like the old way best. What, showing up and hoping you get one of the three spots that aren't reservable? That's a tough thing to do these days if you want to go anywhere popular. I remember camping with my parents 30 years ago and the idea of reservations wasn't something anyone thought of but things have changed now.

RE: Campnab

Google it and get all the information first hand. Great, thanks for the super helpful response. I'm so glad you're here to provide such valuable information to people.

Hey, just curious if anyone has tried this service out? It sounds like a brilliant idea, wish I had thought of it! I was thinking of signing up to try to get a few spots in Jasper and Banff since they all book up for the year on the first day. Just curious if anyone has had an luck with it? Thanks!

RE: Camping with TPN

Thanks! We have two pumps that last about two days each so we shouldn't have an issue with power. We have a trailer and only use sites with electric and always have a pump charging so even if there is a power outage as long as it doesn't last 3 or 4 days we should be fine. She only needs TPN for 13 hours a day and will probably be down to about 7 or 8 by the summer so power shouldn't be too much of an issue. I was thinking we might need an extra fridge or something since the TPN will take up so much space in the trailer fridge and I'd don't really want that around all the other food and stuff. What a pain in the ass this is! Oh well!!

Camping with TPN

Hey, just curious if anyone has had any experience camping while on TPN. My daughter has had some serious medical issues since she was born in July, she is doing fine now but will be on TPN for the next few months. We were hoping she'd be off of it by the summer but that doesn't seem likely. So, we still want to go camping with her but I'm just curious if anyone has any experience dealing with TPN while camping. I don't imagine it being much different than it is at home. Thanks!

RE: North Whidbey Rv Park @ Oak Harbor,WA

I'd highly recommend the state park over an Rv park any day , it's one of our favourite spots we've ever been too!

First trip with new baby advice

Hey everyone, my wife and I can't wait to introduce our little girl to camping and are looking for any advice anyone might have on what to bring/do and want not to do. She will be 1 in July but was born 3 months premature so will be closer to a 9 month old when we head out. We've got a few weekend trips in May/June planned to test things out but then in July we are heading out for a 3 week trip to Idaho, Oregon and Montana...which might be a little ambitious but go big or go home right?! Thanks in advance for your tips!
