RE: Sept Nova Scotia

Nice weather then. Low 70's when we were there in mid-Sept. Unless you get a cold snap! Some stuff closes after Labour Day, though.

RE: SoCal to North Central Washington: 395 or 95?

I always found the drive thru the tri-cites of WA to get on 395 very confusing.Heck I live here, and I find it very confusing also! We have morons designing the highways here.

RE: 2-3 Day Trip into Canada

If you find yourself near Cranbrook, forget the commercial CG's near the town, and head south on 95 to Moyie Lake Provincial Park. Very nice and quiet park.

RE: Lewis Clark Memorial Highway

I much prefer SR14 on the WA side to I-84 on the OR side. More scenic, less traffic. Good road surface. However, it is most all 2-lane, and the part between Camas and The Dalles has more curves. It's no problem for RV's of any variety.

RE: Best route from Biggs Junction to Coos Bay

Depends on which roads you prefer. I-84 to Portland, I-205, then I-5 would be the freeway route. Avoids most of the messy bits of Portland, but 205 is very busy as is 84 coming in from Troutdale. Troutdale is the gas place. Or, head from Biggs to Redmond. That road is very good, though mostly 2-lane. US 20 to Eugene is a good road also, but obviously twistier through the Cascades. Madras is a good gas place on this route.

RE: No Spare tire correct

My RoadTrek CS has a spare, tucked up under the chassis. Good to have. But it is way too heavy for me to work in my old age. Coach-Net guy will have to do it, but at least I have the tire.

RE: Travel to the USA

Easiest answer: Maybe. There is little consistency. Best bet is to not bring fresh produce and meat into the US. Just get it when you get there. The rules change at the whim of somebody -- nobody knows who -- such that even the border agents agree it is impossible to know all the current regs. That said, if they do check you over, and decide that your little bag of rice (like in my case!) or whatever is a no-no, just let it go, plead ignorance, and move on. No argument will succeed.

RE: Aggressive Sales tactics at CW

Sounds like you made a credit card deposit on the rig. What exactly was the "delivery checklist"? Surely there was a bunch of fine print to clarify all this? If not, then tell them to pound sand.

RE: Dash AC Control Knob Replacements

I'd be checking out my nearest "used auto parts dealer". (Otherwise known as the junkyard.)

RE: My Shrimp Salad

Holy moly -- 3 tablespoons of Old Bay?

RE: Is Good Sam worth joining?

All they did was flood my mailbox. Not worth it to me.

RE: Toad charging line

I put a charge line on my 06 CRV when I set it up for towing. Couple of times the wire worked loose in the connector, and yes, the toad was dead at the end of the day. Once I fixed that, trouble free. 40k miles of towing it.

RE: Route 6/191 from Provo to Canyonland

What everyone else says. The white knuckle route is I-15. Everyone seems to think if they slow down any, Vegas will run out of money before they get there.

RE: Canadian side Niagara Falls Questions

Just go to an ATM and get some Canadian currency. You'll get a better exchange, and you won't be disrespecting Canadians by expecting them to take US cash. What do you think happens when Canadians produce Canadian currency in the US?

RE: Camping with Dobermans

Those are two lovely looking Dobies. I've had two over the years -- marvelous dogs, both softies. Unfortunately their reputation precedes them.

RE: Visiting Montreal and Quebec City

Quebec City: Usual CG is the KOA on the south shore. Not very scenic, but they have shuttle to the central city, where you certainly don't want to be driving an RV. Montreal: if it is a hot and muggy day, head underground to the vast interconnected spaces in the central section. Other sights: Mount Royal Parc, St Joseph Oratory, Botanical Gardens. And go to Schwartz's on St Laurent for an iconic smoked meat sandwich.

RE: The Wide Open West - an Example

Looks like US 93 in Nevada between Wells and Ely.

RE: yakima to emumclaw Washington

Snoqualmie Pass on I-90 is a much "easier" drive. The grades are gentler, the curves less, and the road is 4-lane. With plenty of traffic. Chinook Pass is a 2-lane roadway with some long pulls and some interesting curves and "edges". It is, however, a much more interesting drive than I-90, and is driven by RV's of all persuasions all the time. Oh, and just west of Yakima, near Naches, you'll find fantastic fruit stands!

RE: Vegas food

You have to decide if you want GOOD food, or CHEAP food. Some of the best restaurants in America are there on the strip. Haven't found them to be cheap, though.

RE: Route suggestions Branson to Russellville, AR

Arkansas 7 is indeed pretty curvy. It is also one of the most scenic roads in America in my opinion. I've run it a couple of times, including with a 38' pusher and toad. Not a problem, though not a speedy drive.
