RE: BC Residents only

BC is making it very clear that it is BC residents only in the provincial campgrounds. If a camper were to have non-BC plates, they could/will be refused. https://www.castanet.net/news/BC/300622/Camping-in-BC-provincial-parks-for-BC-residents-only-this-year?fbclid=IwAR3XHCSlA_cguIGZfNwAJRFOrKdLOEFVYS6q8lx7LiC8Z1xyd81My6c5avo#300622 Gary HauptCool Idea. Maybe Arizona could do the same and keep the state campgrounds open only to AZ residents during the snowbird season. I sat on my fingers for 24 hours, wondering if I had the energy to respond to this sort of trash talk. I guess I do.. You have singled out snowbirds, so I will take it personally. Your comment is so typical of the nonsense coming out of some folks mouths. Protectionism, US only...that idea may appeal...right up until it doesn't meet the countries needs, then it's all about 'now what'. Be ever so careful what you wish for..water, oil, foods..oh...airfields to park your aircraft and passengers in the event of another tragic event. I can hear the voices now...'we don't need...'. Oh yeah...you do. By all means..stay out of ours...or be thankful we are good neighbors who are doing what is necessary too look after things. Soon enough, people will be able to cross the border and carry on with their lives. And people like you don't need to travel BC to get north...take the ferry. Gary Haupt Well said Gary. Thank you

RE: BC Residents only

I hope BC residents remember that when the forest fires start, and they need out of province help. Two totally different unrelated subjects. Firefighters normally stay in their own camps near the fires. See it when driving....a bunch of tents in a field with porta potties and mess tents.

RE: Canada/US Border still shut...

Our country, our border, our laws. Those borders are closed to all but commercial traffic....

RE: Snowbirding 2020/21

What I am wondering about is all of our Canadian friends. As it stands now, Canadians cannot get out of country medical insurance. Unless that changes, I doubt you will see many of us. We may have to get reacquainted with Canadian winters. No vaccine....No medical insurance....no travel to USA. Have a winter home in Casa Grande, AZ and optimistically....2 yrs before I`m there again.

RE: Newfoundland

Contact the Provincial tourism folks and get them to send ALL their info. Good starting point.

RE: Canadian Maritimes Provinces

May I suggest you look on the provincial tourism websites and have a look around there. Have the tourism folks send you their tourism books for you to read. Explore what interests you. RV Parks info & things to do, etc are in those books.

RE: insurance company

We have been using Travellers Choice(travelinsuranceoffice.com ) for years. Have compared it to others but always gone to this company. We buy 142 day top up to my pension coverage. $99 deductable for $10 million coverage each. 62 yr old female and 69 yr old male with pre-existing & stable conditions will run us about $1550 this year for the 142 days. Others may be cheaper BUT coverage is usually lower... ie $ 5 mil vs 10.

RE: Sights along Lake Superior

The Terry Fox Memorial just before Thunder Bay is a must. If you don`t know the history of Terry Fox, google and read up on him. A truly great Canadian IMO. Here`s just one piece of info... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_Fox Whoops. Not a "clicky" You`ll have to copy & paste!!! Can`t help you with campgrounds as we were through there 10 yrs or so ago.

Major BC Hiway Closure

https://calgaryherald.com/news/local-news/major-detours-over-years-loom-on-trans-canada-highway-through-rockies This news article outlines the closure of Hiway #1 /Trans Canada Hiway east of Golden,BC. Will be a MAJOR disruption to traffic flow for locals, visitors and the commercial trucking industry. Already busy alternate routes will become a nightmare, IMO. Heads up to anyone planning on driving in this area and southern BC. Be prepared for lots of traffic and extended delays.

RE: shaw satellite

Shaw no longer supports satelite south of the 49th. The current satelite will shutdown Sep/Oct. We winter in southern AZ and will be going with a "streaming" service that offers 5000 channels at $20/ month + purchase of the equipment. HS Mobile World. Call Bill at 604-510-5040 to get all the info. Others in our park use this service and are happy with it.Bill was very happy to answer all our questions. Won't you also need unlimited high speed bandwidth (aka internet access) in the park you're at? That might add issues and/or $$$ to the project. We have 25-27mbps thru Dish while we are in AZ. According to "Bill" that is more than sufficient and should not encounter any buffering. Other Canadian friends in the same park gave me a demo of the system and they have never had buffering.
