RE: Canada border crossing

Respectfully Lakeside 013104, US Border Protection & immigration have absolutely no say on who can or cannot enter Canada. That is entirely up to Canadian officials. You don't even stop at a US checkpoint on crossing into Canada. Respect back at you Veebyes, but if you look at this part of my statement, I was speaking about entering and leaving the USA: 'If you want accurate information on rules about exiting and entering the United States, check with the Ports of Entry (POE), where the Officers wear blue uniforms and drive white/blue vehicles. These folks are the ones working in the 'booths' at the POEs. They are US Customs & Border Protection Officers (CBP), very different from Border Patrol Offices.' With same respect, the best place to check for information about rules that apply to entering and exiting Canada, is to check with CBSA, Canadian Border Services Authority, which is at the Canadian side of the border. Maybe I should have said that, but I assumed folks would understand my point was about entry and exit of the USA. Also you mentioned: " You don't even stop at a US checkpoint on crossing into Canada". This is a true statement, to a point. Outbound inspections, which is inspection of vehicles leaving the US side of the border are conducted on a rotating schedule. Everyone MUST stop at these checkpoints. Border search authority is the same at this 'outbound' point of inspection as it is at the inbound point of inspection, which is usually conducted on the other side of the buildings. These outbound inspection sites will be marked accordingly and normal driving lanes will be restricted in order to funnel all traffic to the point of inspection. For your own safety, please be prepared to stop at these outbound inspection points. Safe travels, Lakeside

RE: Canada border crossing

You need to call both the US and Canadian border patrol. Border Patrol (BP) (green uniforms and white/green vehicles) generally work between the Ports of Entry (POE), INA212 laws. If you want accurate information on rules about exiting and entering the United States, check with the Ports of Entry (POE), where the Officers wear blue uniforms and drive white/blue vehicles. These folks are the ones working in the 'booths' at the POEs. They are US Customs & Border Protection Officers (CBP), very different from Border Patrol Offices. BP (green) Officers main focus is about illegal immigrants with second focus on illegal narcotics. CBP (blue) Officers have vastly more legal authority than BP Officers, in order to conduct enforcement of laws for 44 other agencies within this country. LINK Lakeside

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

A long time ago my parents told me, "If you don't have something 'good' to say about someone, keep your mouth shut". I think that's what Thumper said to Bambi. It works in a children's movie. Your insinuating only children do the 'right' thing. Too bad 'intelligent' adults can not follow suit......there in lays the problem! Lakeside

RE: Long arm of the law...

The appropiate sentence should be to spend one month the hottest one in Death Valley with only his swiming suit, no shoes, no pants, no shirt, no hat and a canteen of water only! Betya he would not do it again! navegator And a toothbrush and spit to clean up his vandalism.... And if he can clean up his mess early, he gets out early. Work fast young man, preferably during the day when you can see what you are doing! Move faster, do it and do it now. Quick...quicker..... I wager he still would be too thick in the head to understand why he was getting sentenced to DV and be too lazy to even attempt early release. Shameful what some folks will do. Nothing between the ears accept sailboat fuel. Lakeside

RE: Mild earthquake shakes TC

We had a 7.1 that seemed to shake forever a year and a half ago. Mass damage to homes/businesses roads severely damaged, and major highway bridges closed due to damage. We came home to a house that had emptied most of the kitchen cabinets, wall decorations on the floor, garage shelf contents strewn all over the garage floor, no power for a long time (substation and switch stations damaged), and undrinkable well water. This all happened on a November 30th so we had to repair our wood stove chimney and fire up the woodstove to keep the house from freezing, used what bottled water we had left from the camper, and fired up the Honda generator from the camper for a little power. If it wasn't for the woodstove, our Wolf Creek would have become home! You sure learn what's really important in times like that. MORSNOW, good post. Thanks for sharing. Yes, I agree with you (You sure learn what's really important in times like that). Sounds like lots of work putting things back in order, with the stress of having no power for heat, cooking, water, etc. Most Alaskans are very 'hardy' people. My son and his wife live in Healy. It sure can get cold up that way. We were camping for the summer of 2017 up in Healy area when my wife accidently fell off the rear bumper of the TC while it was loaded onto the F-350. Like you said, when certain things happen in our lives, we certainly understand what is really important to us. Lakeside

RE: Mild earthquake shakes TC

How you feel earthquake depends not only on magnitude, but also on distance and what position you are in. When you walk or drive, you will not feel it till roofs will start coming down. I felt 3.2 quake when I was sitting on sofa and epicentrum was 3.6 miles from our home. We are past scorpions hatch and the few flies were blown by desert winds. With this week forecast for solid 80F, I have my pool ready. Envy for your nice warm weather Kayteg1. We got up to 44F here today with a few spots of sun. Snow is disappearing rapidly. Early flowers starting to show themselves. Each area of this wonderful country has its own pros & cons. Maine folks are a 'hardy' bunch and will get by. Up until a few short years ago, most folks up this way did not lock their doors or remove keys from their vehicles. Sadly, those times have disappeared, but true Maines are always ready to lend a helping hand to neighbors, often times for free or maybe the wages of a hot apple pie or a dozen homemade yeast rolls. Normally the payment of food treats are based on the reputation of the cook providing the gift....... Mainers are 'hardy', but not stupid. If the food is not so good, the labors of the day are free!!!!!;) TC standing by, ready to find a dirt road, a small stream, and an inquisitive moose. Lakeside

RE: Mild earthquake shakes TC

“and the little shake session the TC experienced I am glad there is a roof over the camper and a solid foundation under it.” SoCal people don’t notice much unless the quake hits 5.0. What was your number? Well below your number. I didn't even know we had an earthquake until it was reported on local news. I didn't see TC shaking, just assumed it felt the effects of the minor quake. I did see the heavy snow that came and weighted everything not under a roof with lots of white stuff. I was in SoCal during the quake of 1970 - 1971 erra. Not sure of the exact dates, just know I was out that way serving in the military when it happened. Just like we have 'black fly' season around here, folks have 'quakes' in your area. We don't like them, but become accustomed to them. If you experienced even a few 'black flies' buzzing around your head and getting into your nostrils, you would become concerned. What little quake that was reported for us is concerning because we seldom experience them, let alone feel the effects of them. I guess the concern is, if we had a little quake, is a bigger one coming? I know the answer to the 'black fly' issue. If you see and feel a few of them around you, very soon you will have hundreds buzzing around. After 'black fly' season we experience mosquito hatch, than deer fly hatch, no see um hatch, and moose fly hatch. Be safe. Lakeside

Mild earthquake shakes TC

Central Maine got a little shaking the other day. Between the heavy snow & high winds causing power outages for days, and the little shake session the TC experienced I am glad there is a roof over the camper and a solid foundation under it. Today's weather forecast is for 55 mph winds, but no snow, just rain. Hopefully power outages will not be so vast or will not last for multiple days. There are a few folks who are still without power from the last storm. So staying inside out of the rain keeps us dry and maintains the social distancing so prevalent in parts of our nation. My wishes for safety, good health, and maintaining one's sanity to all. Lakeside

RE: How come?

I can't say why in your case, my why is because I really don't want to be at home in the first place. :( from above statement. Sorry to hear that. I enjoy being around home. I can stay busy 12 hours every day. Always something to do outdoors or indoors on foul weather days. Cut, split, & stack 10 to 12 cords of firewood, gardens to tend, canning to do in season, lawns to mow, fishing, camping, atving, hunting, snow sledding, working with the tractor and shooting to do, maintenance on equipment, construction of decks and utility buildings, and always maintenance on the home, apartment, and garages. For indoor work, there is reloading ammunition, tying flies, cleaning inside of camper, help with the cooking and housework, reading, watching a favorite movie, talking to friends on electronic devices and so much else to do. I am never bored. I start my day planning to do one thing, when I notice something else that needs to be done. Always busy and love every minute of being around home. I do not need to be entertained for I can keep myself busy. If you don't enjoy being around your home, there probably are other issues that you are dealing with. Best of luck and I hope things get better in your life. Lakeside Oh, I've got plenty of things I could do around home, but I'd rather be out with the RV somewhere than doing any of them here. bukhrn, you are correct. Always good to be out in the RV, especially if that outing is in the north woods of Maine where the waters close by and the wildlife can be enjoyed. I never have to 'have' a reason to go camping. I wake up in the morning and the weather is fine and the forecast is good for several days, pack the grub and the fishpole in the TC and take off camping for a few days or a week. All good, but priorities in my life dictat that work must be done around my home so that my family will be kept warm and fed during the cold winter months. All in perspective of what your ultimate goals are chosen to be. I had hoped to go camping this weekend, but due to the 12" of heavy wet snow in the forecast, I will reschedule my visit with Mother Nature for a short time. Best of everything to you and yours and be safe. Lakeside

RE: How come?

We're a ways into self isolation and it's really upsetting me to witness my wife standing at the living room window gazing aimlessly into space with tears running down her cheeks. It breaks my heart to see her like this this. I've thought very hard about how I can cheer her up. I have even considered perhaps letting her into the house - but rules are rules. At least you could pass her out a little TP for the tears, OPPS no TP available. Maybe consider passing her out one of her old blouses or tee shirts. At least she will feel better knowing you are thinking about her!!!!! Lakeside

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

We tried 2 1/2 - 3 months in the Phx area for the last 3 years. We lived there for 13 years and we have plenty of friends but we're always anxious to get back home. Its hard to beat 5 acres, all the tools, toys and craft stuff AND shooting in the back yard! We're going to try 1-1/2 month, next winter. Craig Almost a duplicate for us. Retired at 10:30 AM on the road at 11:00 the first year with our 40' 5er, went to FL. & AZ and after 5 months, back home. Next year reserved 3 months in FL. at a very nice site on an alligator filled mud puddle, after three weeks, wife was homesick for our home on a crystal clear lake in Northern Maine. Third year a 5 month trip to Alaska cut short when wife fell off the rear step of our TC, while we were 200 miles back into the bush. After this nightmare unfolded and we made it home, no more long trips for us. We still love to CAMP in secluded spots near home with friends who enjoy doing the same hobbies as fishing, hiking, and sharing each other's company & conversations around a campfire. No rules to follow other than to appreciate Mother nature's beauty and respect the land. There is a big difference between RVing and Camping. Parked like sardines next to strangers who invest no time with their neighbors because you are a transient and will be gone shortly. Listening to neighbors fight and scream at each other and at their unruly pets is not something the DW and I wish to repeat. Rules of some campgrounds we visited applied only to transient travelers and not to folks that own their lots. No such dramma as this in the many private spots near lakes that we camp at now. No stress while traveling other than to avoid the moose and deer that often show themselves. Each to their own. No full timing for us. No more RVing in crowded campgrounds with neighbors who will not speak or wave in a passing friendly manner. Now we Camp as often as time allows and truly enjoy the beauty around us. Lakeside

RE: Don't come to NH either!

United States, 350 MILLION people. 150 deaths. Come on y’all. Isn’t this maybe a tat overblown? Yes and no. I'm far from an alarmist but it seems there can be "community transmission" i.e, the virus can spread to those who have not traveled, etc. I do plan on continuing outdoor activities (with discretion and caution) AND keeping my sense of humor intact! Yes, great idea madam.....I stand corrected. Pol-ah-gs extended! Lakeside

RE: Don't come to NH either!

Come on people. You are supposed to stay home to prevent the spread of this killer virus. Sure transporting it from state to state is a good idea. Lighten up Jack_Diane, Mr Crowe knows if he feels well enough to think about nice eating places, I am sure he is intelligent enough to not travel right now. My post was to keep things on the lighter side, remembering happier times. Most know that traveling is not good right now. I think there is nothing against laughing, but I could be wrong. Smile and be healthy, Lakeside

RE: AF 1140 Dry Weight

My buddy on the AF owners group on FB says his 2019 1140 is 6000lbs loaded for travel. Yes, that sounds like a good number. I loaded my Palomino for a 4 month trip to Alaska than went to the CAT scales for my weight. I immediately came home and removed 800# of stuff that I thought I might need, but got along just fine without it. As it was, I still scaled out at 5300# of 'cargo' for the trip, 13,800 gross weight.
