RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

The only consolation is my parents are still alive and they tell me it was worse during the blitz. They had no food, Internet, or Netflix, and masks did little to protect against bombs.

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

I am hopeful for a vaccine by year end. The purpose of my post was not to discourage anyone but emphasize the need to take as many precautions as possible.

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

Just so everyone knows, a friend of mine died of covid on thursday. He got it while RVing. He ended up on a ventilator for 2 weeks, his wife just got sick. It is possible to get it RVing, and every time you are traveling you inevitably come in contact with strangers who may not even know they have it. His wife has no idea how he got it. Maybe getting groceries or filling with fuel. It just goes to show you cant be too careful. It is safer staying at home where you can restrict the number of others you come in contact with. Myself, I have just had a bucket of cold water poured over me. I am staying put until this recedes or there is a vaccine. Just to make it real here is a photo https://www.vancouver.hm/johnmary.jpg height=400 width=640

RE: Covid 19 warning

Its filled with sand, but we can take them out one at a time if we can do a head shot. Maybe we can also burn down the white house again like we did in 1812.

RE: Covid 19 warning

“Prime Minister Trudeau should arm the border if necessary, to keep Americans away,” Reminds me of "The Mouse That Roared". Remember, we now have a grenade. Had it for 16 years now. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/grenade-scare-closes-us-border/

RE: Covid 19 warning

Too many unknowns for us for the coming snowbird season including the Canada/US border, we've already decided to cancel our annual trek to South Carolina. I’m 72 and my wife will be 69 this year; until they have this virus beaten with a vaccine, we’re staying in the great white north! First time in 9 years. :( I am 71, my wife 65. First winter in 15 years for us. I don't even own a winter coat. Hoping that maybe there will be a vaccine by February and I can take a late winter trip. Even here in BC Canada we are seeing an upsurge, due to young people doing things like beach parties. We were averaging about 10 new infections a day, now its 30. Still way below most of the US, but it shows people are getting complacent.

RE: Covid 19 warning

well i am in Canada where the rate is 1/4 that of the US, and maybe less compared to Mexico, but that aside, you can control your circle of contacts at home to a known quantity. When traveling you are in unknown territory.

Covid 19 warning

For what it's worth, I just received news a good friend of mine passed away this morning from Covid 19. He got while RVing and they were being careful. His wife also go it, probably from him, but just got very ill. He was on a ventilator in hospital for 2 weeks. He was healthy and active. This is a wake up call for me. A winter at home beats eternity 6 ft under. This disease is not one to be blase about, it is not a hoax, it is not less dangerous than flu. Think long and hard before you decide to play Russian Roulette by heading for the sun this winter before there is a vaccine.

RE: 100 days till snowbirding........ maybe not

I normally take my RV down to Melaque Mexico. I can maybe get across the northern border as I have a mexican resident card, they let people transit canada for Alaska, but it seems too risky. I booked a flight for november and will rent instead, but I may cancel. A winter in Canada beats 20 more in a grave.

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

It seems to be a far leakier border than the northern one.

RE: Canadian Snowbird Future

BTW just saw a news item they are doing trials in quebec with an extract form tobacco. Same thing at the university in lethbridge with something from pot. The way it would work is not provide immunity but impede or lessen infection. If that just makes it like a normal bad cold or flu, that works.

RE: Expiring Residente Temporals and Covid

that one is debateable. Some say you can, some say you cannot. I would like to get it settled. Its like RV's with a 10 year permit belonging to people who obtain permanente. I know of 2 people still bringing in their RV each season. A friend of mine is doing that. He even got stopped last year, but they only wanted to look at his tow car (which was a Mexican plated one). They were not interested in the RV and he did have to show them his resident card. If you look at the SAT regulations they are clear on cars, but not on Casa Rodantes. Its almost as if they are considered residences. I even know of one case where somebody with RP got another 10 year sticker. So who knows. I am involved in running caravans down there which is why I am so interested in getting the rules straightened out. It is a challenge. We all know the hassles over 3/4 and 1 ton trucks for example. Another issue is whether a RP can put a close relative on their title/registration and drive an RV. We turned away a customer who was suggesting that. I said no at the time, but pouring through the regulations it seems like that may be OK. There are a lot of grey areas. Who knows what implications there may be with NAFTA 2.0. Its also weird with taking a Mexican plated car into Canada. You can take one into the US for a year, Canada seems inconsistent by province. Back to the free area, I know there are a lot of RP in Baja with American plated cars. This is not quite the same situation as with the seized boats. In that case they required TIP's, cars in Baja do not. It one big confusing mess. regardless anyone with RP driving a car in the free zone would be smart to put a close relative which has to be a spouse, sibling or parents on the registration. Since the vehicle does not need a TIP, it appears to be perfectly legal, its right there in the SAT regulations, just carry a letter from the relative who is co-owner of the vehicle. I can find the paragraph if anyone is interested. It's on page 24 of the SAT Regulations, but still open to interpretation. Of course it a moot point where a TIP is required as the relative would have had to get the TIP, but in the free zone where no TIP is required? BTW ,Moisheh, I am not trying to circumvent the rules, simply clarify them for others. WE have been battling the tuck weight issues for 5 years even using lawyers inside Mexico. We have finally pinned the problem down to a mistranslation in Banjercito. Even though they are aware of it, soem officials are still causing problems with it. It is cargo capacity, not GVW, BTW.

RE: Canadian Snowbird Future

Well its hard to say, this may become like the flu with an annual modified shot. It depends on what mechanism a vaccine uses. The first ones will be to develop antibodies, others they are working on attack it in a more generic way. The other SARS was easier to isolate. Toronto was lucky it had Dr Bonnie Henry on the job with that one. She is almost single handedly responsible for BC controlling this one, although I have to give the provincial government credit for stepping back and giving her complete control.

RE: What will Canadians fo this fall/winter

also my neighbor who has both a US & Canadian passport left in their RV for California yesterday to visit family. They did not come back, so they must have got across.
