Don't count me as a Trumpist (wife's uncle lost money in a Trump bankruptcy) but, funding R&D for AstraZeneca, with option to buy doses and fronting a pre-production buy order for Pfizer are the reasons the US got first dibs on the vaccines. See Link. I think Moderna and J&J also got some kinda deal. It is not because they manufacture in the US. We got the vaccines the old fashioned way, we fronted the money and got rights of first refusal. It would be in the best interests of the US of A to move some of the soon to be excess doses to our friends.

This is an example of a very good decision of the Trump presidency. Now, if you got a month, we can talk about the bad ones.

Before you head this way...and yes, prices are higher, I hope you do some research on the viability of buying land in Canada with the intention of moving here. It s not as straight forward as one might think.

Hi, I never said I was moving there - I noted looking for a summer property to consider purchasing, similar to how Canadians do in winter in the southern states in the US! [emoticon] Prices are crazy here in the US right now too! There’s lots of places to visit here still I guess until the market cools down! Thanks for your reply!

I stand corrected.

I get Chucks “RV Travel” news letters and have for several years and I suspect many of you do too. I have been sensing for some time that in the U.S. and Canada we RVer’s are not liked much by those that don’t RV with anything bigger than a tent trailer or camperized van! Or not at all. The reports indicating this are in every issue.
Many jurisdictions block the development or RV parks, city owned or private. They see us a big fossil fuel consumers and see driving fuel costs up as a way to get us off the road.
The days of “live and let live” are in the past.
The RV life style is under attack at every turn. It’s not only the US /Canada border they don’t want us crossing now the BC premier has said they don’t want us on the road at all this summer in his province!
There is a hidden agenda

As someone who has a small folding trailer, I can tell you that I really don't give a rat's patootie how you RV. It's your choice - enjoy it.

This idea that big rig RVers hate the ittle guys and the little guys hate the big rig RVers is nothing more than paranoia and a self delusion that you are more important than you really are.

As for the current state of things, that has everything to do with COVID and nothing to do with a dislike of RVers.

There has been opposition to “new” camping spaces long before covid. I suspect you “toed” don’t read the newsletter I mentioned

And I don’t appreciate the insult.
You missed the point of my comment completely.

Don't worry about us we are not that bad. Fact is compared to the rest of the world we are right behind you.

We appreciate your concern but as I look out the window we are not on fire. Thing could always be better but here in Ontario we are having a political problem not a vaccine problem. We'll sort it out later.

Thanks for your concern.
