RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

Quebec seems to be a special case. I hate to say it, but they do not like following rules. Witness a few groups of Quebec snowbirds not heading home to quarantine but caught going shopping in March. They also had a higher portion of care home issues. Actually Canada has a higher urban population rate than the US, 81.5% vs 76%. Most Canadians live in cities, mainly in a 200 mile strip along the southern border.

RE: Snow Birds ??

I am parking my RV and I booked a flight to Mexico which I may or may not use. I am in Canada and I don't believe the land border will be open until 2021. I do have Mexican residency and medical down there, so the travel insurance is not an issue, but do I really want to be in a Mexican hospital with covid? Until there is a vaccine or significant herd immunity, I will probably stay home. They might let me transit the US if I show them my Mexican resident card, but I am not taking unnecessary risks. i would rather lose 1 year of retirement enjoyment than 20.

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

I also think the Canadian border will stay closed until next year. The difference between infection in the US and Canada is huge so I can't see it opening. I decided to leave my RV home this year and book a flight in November, which I may or may not use. I do think some sort of herd immunity may be possible by year end simply because of the rate of spread. Hell of away to get there though.

RE: My dad worked on this

Well that is a possibility in those days. Lots of conspiracy theories around it, like pressure from the US because it wanted Canada to buy Bomark missiles, etc. My dad thinks it was political as it was started under the Liberals and the Conservatives then axed it. One thing against the spy argument is that the soviets did not produce any aircraft resembling it, like happened with the space shuttle. It would be naive however, to say they were not at least trying. That could explain why the plans & aircraft were destroyed. When my dad was working on the Vulcan around 1950, my sister & I were even escorted to school. That was right in the midst of the commie behind every lamppost scare. My dad was responsible for the undercarriage, so he had to know all the payload specs.

RE: My dad worked on this

It performed impressively in the test flights, it would have been nice if it had lasted long enough to be fitted with the new engines. It was an impressive aircraft for the late 50's. I don't think it was equaled until into the 70's. My dad also worked on the Vulcan in Britain before going to Canada. One of the reasons he decided to change careers was all the security restrictions involved in that period when working on classified military aircraft. He was told in no uncertain terms the conditions he would have to work under in the US. He said no thanks. This was not all that much later than the McCarthy era and paranoia about communists was still strong.

My dad worked on this

He did not go to NASA like most of the others, he went back to university and changed careers and stayed in Canada, despite the big bucks he was offered. I still remember the guys in the black suits trying to convince him. Saved me from Vietnam in the process, I suppose. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20200615-the-record-breaking-jet-which-still-haunts-a-country

RE: Covid-19 in Guerrero

Friends of mine in Melaque told me tour buses form guadalajara showed up in town over the weekend, until now there have been no cases. I don't think that will last

RE: Covid-19 in Guerrero

Friends in Melaque, Jalisco report no cases there. My dads english student is stuck in Mexico City. He says it's real ugly there. I am still in doubt about getting back in December to renew my temporal. May depend on flights.

Ok I spoke to the owner. They have power & water at least, plus a room to rent and a restaurant. It's called the sierra vista RV Park. The GPS coordinates are: N 27.815072 W 109.890953 https://www.mexicocaravans.com/sierravista.jpg

New Rv park cuidad obregon

Apparently there is a new park on lake Oviachic off hwy 121 just north of Cuidad Obregon. Bass fishing & hotsprings. I am trying to get more info and co-ordinates. I have a phone number so I will have my partner phone them and maybe check it out when that is possible.

RE: Tequila

You cannot take a Mexican plated vehicle into Canada. Once permanente if I want to drive down I will store it in San Carlos in the free zone and do a swap over. One nice thing aboiut BC is I can get a rebate on insurance while a vehicle is in mexico. Mind you I do live only 3 km from the border and its a rural area, so could probably store it in the US. A friend of mine is trying to talk the government into allowing something like the 6 month TIP in Mexico
