RE: Anyone here upgraded their headlights?

I did, but I am lost trying to recall just exactly what. I bought Sylvania plug n light...no big deal..except I had to go to a dealer to get the removal figured out. The other thing to be mindful of is the front plastic on the your headlights is probably fogged. You can some ideas on You-tube on how to clean and that alone will improve your lighting. Gary Haupt

RE: Fall colours in Wa

Try crossing SR20 over the North Cascades Highway, Mazama, Winthrop, Twisp all should be colorful and make great stops. 20 is one of my all time favorite drives. This was a drive to Settle via a different route than usual. Gary

Border/passport issue

I have a post in General..that is titled Passport given to...?? It might be prudent to make yourselves aware of what 'could' and really did, happen. And in the telling...there is nothing I could have done to prevent the incident from happening. Skip to page 4 to my latest, for a short version. Gary Haupt

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

For those that operate any kind of RV, you could/will encounter this scenario, where you are directed to any kind of secondary inspection. The kiosk agent retains all passports given over to them in the original interview. The agent that will do secondary, collects the passport pertaining to that particular vehicle. I have no idea what the process is for setting those passports aside while the kiosk agent continues to to work with other vehicles that are coming after you..remember, YOU have been pulled aside, other vehicle come thru after you and get passed thru. Yes..I was really lucky that the person that received my passport was known to the Border people and that by his history, were confident he was coming back, same day. Apparently Oroville is a training centre, and that might have been an new agent getting oriented. I have been back in touch with original supervisor advising that I was not filing a complaint and that I was more than satisfied with how it was all handled. In the end...I lost nothing and had a very unusual experience. Gary

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

Mistakes happen, glad it was taken care of quickly. It could of been bad for both of you had you not noticed the mistake. Surprised the other guy didn't look at the passport when it was returned to him. It would have been 'interesting' if he hadn't come back the same day, for sure. I was already IN, so it would have to have been reported as Lost or Stolen by next day. Then who was going to pay for THAT? And all the questions that would have come my way everytime I crossed. And yes..if he had looked, but..he didn't. Gary

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

How would they get an extra passport. The previous guy left without asking for his passport back? Who does that? You are entering a foreign country, and you are going to leave the border without getting your passport back from the agent? Pretty strange set of circumstances involved here. Maybe I wasn't clear. I wasn't entering...I was already IN....The other driver was given MY passport, in error, obviously.I could have stayed at the border...this happened at 10:30 am and I could have sat there for 12+hours. They released me to carry on into town and in a later phone call with the afternoon supervisor, I informed him that I was camping out..and where, but he didn't care...and that I would be back in the morning.

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

This is why I have both a passport and a passport card. The card is not usable for international air travel but can serve as interim proof of citizenship should the passport be lost or stolen. I doubt the guard did anything nefarious. Yes, it should be reported to make sure procedure is being followed. If the guard commented "it doesn't look like you" than surely your pic doesn't look like the other guy either and most likely couldn't be used for any illegal activity. The guard did nothing nefarious. It was simply an error and I didn't have to report it...the Supervisor was more than just a little upset. Gary

RE: US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

I am sorry, your passport should never leave your sight!! When a driver is directed to a secondary examination, the passport is 'held' by BP agents until an agent is assigned to your vehicle. THAT agent returns the passport. Saying no is always an option. They will simply turn your around. And maybe not even that..they may take a particular interest in your and your vehicle. Gary

US Border agent gave my passport to.....??

For anyone that has border crossing concerns....Monday morning, crossing at Oroville, get the usual Agriculture inspection. Pull over to the left and wait for the agent. Agent finally saunters over...holds up the passport and observes..."you don't look much like this anymore" as he gives me my passport. As I hand it back..`because that`s not mine`. The agent in the kiosk had given my passport to another driver and they were long gone. Long story short...they knew the other driver and hoped he`d be back sometime in the day. I was released into the US and I overnighted up on the Similkameen. Got it back this morning at 9am. Gary Haupt

RE: Fall colours in Wa

That's a beautiful state even without the fall colors. I wonder though why you'll be amazed with WA. You are from BC where I bet, it's more colorful come autumn, lol. I find the fall colors here quite beautiful. No need to travel to Canada to see them. You'll be happier staying where you are. Travel has a tendency to broaden one's horizons. Gary

WA SR2 has colors in the Tumwater Canyon west of Leavenworth. Thanks for the hint. I am sitting in Omak looking at which way...I like yours. Gary

Fall colours in Wa

I hope. Off for a two week jaunt. Only a week in the state but that will see me over the mountinais and exploring several craft breweries along the way. The Seattle...more craft places. If you see the white 4x4 C...wave hi, eh... Gary Haupt

RE: Some Photos of Class C's from a show yesterday

Just slightly off topic but where does the money come from to buy a decent Class C? I'm thinking the cost approaches $100K! That's more than some houses. No need to buy a new one, Dick. Lots of good used ones out there. By far, the best advice is...don't go into debt for a buggy. Get the one you can afford. Gary Haupt

RE: New to RVing

Leaks..as mentioned are the killer to be super watchful of. It's not the water coming in, it's the rot that is the result of the water coming. Do a Google search on wood rot and it's health issues. Be aware too, that fixing an RV that has the wood rot is a huge HUGE expense. One you do not want. IF you are handy and can repair yourself? That is a whole different story. One answer...maybe the answer, is to do your research on RV's that are built using aluminum framing. Don't get trapped buying an RV that is water damaged. Everything, anything, else can be managed. Not water damage/rot. Gary Haupt
