RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Do the Provinces and AK allow studded snow tires?

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

I use a 200W magnetic heater on my oil pan of my Cummins when it gets really cold in MT which is probably balmy compared to the AK interior. I don't know if it does any good but it makes me feel better.

RE: Border closure for land travel extended.

pianotuna, Those numbers tell me again that the best use of the vaccines is in the US itself. This is where the biggest payoff will be.

RE: Prince George BC to Eureka Mt.

Ah ha. Never needed Full.

RE: Prince George BC to Eureka Mt.

And what is an FHU? My only thoughts are not for print or post.

RE: Fairbank AK -- Northern Lights ????

Someone once told me that in his neighborhood in the AK interior somewhere, guys would leave their diesel pickups idling all night when the temp got down there. It stunk up the neighborhood. Is that really so?

RE: Tire Chains

And I've always said that chains (real chains, not the cable types) were for the extra weight in the trunk and not to be put on (a miserable undertaking).

RE: Fairbank AK -- Northern Lights ????

Yes, saw them in Missoula one night. They were all green but still special. Laid on the back yard lawn so it wasn't winter. We would love to see them up there.

The Museum of the North on the U of Alaska campus is very good.

RE: Out the door....

Nice pictures, indeed. There is a silver lining to having to stay on ones own side of the border. Yellowstone NP had an all-time record number of visitors for a September.

RE: alaska 2021 ???

What's the situation with the Alaska Ferry (Marine Highway?). Can one start in Bellingham and have layovers in just Alaska ports and not Prince Rupert before continuing on land from Haines or Skagway? The ferry was a great part of our only trip to Alaska.

RE: Replacement Fridge Bigger than the Door.

More info. I keep a remote thermometer sender in the refrigerator to keep an eye on the temperature w/o opening the door. I concluded it wasn't working because the fridge temp didn't drop when turned on. But the freezer works just fine! Freezer temp = -6 deg F. Refrigerator = 50 deg F. I thought the refrigerator part tapped off the freezer. If so, how is this possible? Can these things get a vapor lock?

Replacement Fridge Bigger than the Door.

We have a Dometic RM3663 refrigerator in our 1997 Lance truck camper. We'd like to replace it because: 1. It doesn't work and we're told a new cooling unit would be needed. It seems the electronics are OK. Unplugging from 110 causes it to switch to propane and the flame comes on. Plugging it back into 110 turns the flame off and the heat is maintained. 2. The doors have cracked (rough Forest Service roads) and are being held together with duct tape. Serious problem for the wife! It seems, though, the camper door is too small to get a new fridge through it. What to do in a case like this?

RE: 4 maybe 5 weeks....

Typically (on average?), Logan Pass closes for the winter around the 3rd Monday of October but anything goes. It can close temporarily but then reopen. That can happen a couple times until they throw in the towel and close it for the winter.

RE: 4 maybe 5 weeks....

We're down here and would like to tour north of the border but that has to wait. Close to us, though, is Glacier National Park, an option but WOW. Here's a pic of the Logan Pass parking lot a while ago. I actually see an open parking spot! http://sandeace.com/scenics/loganpark600.jpg We could drive our truck camper over the pass from the West but continue to St. Mary where we'd have to turn back (at last report) because the Blackfeet Tribe has closed the Blackfeet Indian Reservation to recreation because of the virus. Good for them. The Blackfeet official website has a section described as "Prevent the spread on the Rez." Again, good for them.

RE: Good Oyster Digging & Clamming Spots on Vancouver Island

A bar in New Orleans has that advice about not eating oysters in a month w/o an R. Then they list the months including Argust, etc. The taste isn't quite as good in all those summer months but they eat just fine from our beach on Hood Canal, WA. Call your biotoxin hotline first, though.

RE: Border closure extended..again

I remember news stories years ago about Canadians buying places in the US SW, Las Vegas, Arizona, etc. I forget the name and cause of this opportunity. Are those folks allowed to come down to their places in the US? What's required to go back to Canada?

RE: Travel into Canada

Aren't both large and small cans of pepper spray used for personal defense? The rule puzzles me.
EEWally 08/12/20 09:01pm RVing in Canada and Alaska
RE: Travel into Canada

Why are large cans of bear pepper spray allowed into Canada but small cans of the same stuff, or stuff with the same effect, not allowed. (Do I understand that right?).

RE: Tracking US travelers

I'm just saying that when a good vaccine is developed, it will not be needed as much north of the border. They seem to have things under much better control than the US so leave the vaccine to the folks who really need it like me. Of course, in 3 or 4 years, everyone will have it....assuming the genetic changes don't throw a spanner in the works.
