Florida ranks 27th of all the states in murder rate, so I don't see it as a 'Florida' problem.

I do see it as a US problem, because you're comparing US homicides to Canadian homicides, and as we all know the two countries have vastly different gun laws.

I'll be out on the boat this afternoon if you need me [emoticon]
Using the Homicide Mortality Rates Florida is 5.8 whereas Minnesota is 2.7. or less than half of Florida's rate.

Then there is the Auto Accident Death Rate. Florida is 14.8 but Minnesota's is only 6.5. I could go on and on.

Enjoy,

For those who think that there is not a lot of RV action in colder parts of Canada, all one has to do is drive around and observe.

Take one cold winter location for example: Calgary. We see temperatures frequently in the upper minus 20's and lower 30's C. Sometimes more extreme. Short as they may be, our summers are blistering hot. Our igloos melt and we have to build straw huts.... [emoticon][emoticon]

Take a drive around the outer city areas and down any highway. There is storage yard after storage yard after storage yard, everywhere you go. Thousands and many more thousands of RV's stored everywhere you look.
It's most likely the same for any major city, such as Regina.

My work takes me all over the map, so I not only see this, but I also see lots of them on the road in all kinds of cold adverse weather. We have a few unserviced locations that are accessible year round, some with power only for obvious reasons.

The point is there are many considerations to be out winter camping and batteries are one of them. We have to consider the effects of cold and what will give us optimum service when it is well below freezing.
Some types of batteries are just not well suited for extreme cold. My GC2's last all winter, outside in the RV. They will still function, run out the slide in any weather.

We are not talking Florida here where you don't get real winter. It's about making it work in cold parts of Canada.

So, don't move to Florida.

No need to go on. I see your point. Minnesota is way better. Maybe it has something to do with the months-on-end that it's just too dang cold, snowy, and icy to go out and commit a crime or drive somewhere! LOL

I'll stay right here.

I'm glad you finally see the point.

When you live in Florida and don't understand why others live where they do, expect those who live elsewhere to explain with facts why they chose to live where they live. Plus, we happen to enjoy the distinct seasons.

And by the way, we live in a karst topography, the only area in Minnesota with no mosquitoes! [emoticon]

Enjoy,

Well in Nevada, a chambered 9 in the front seat is a legal and effective means of preventing hijackings and encouraging good manners…

Well, I really don't fully see the point. I lived in Michigan for 20 years. Also 5 other states, then ultimately Florida, so I fully understand what it's like to live in different places, with different climates, and four distinct seasons. I just happen to hate freezing cold winters, ice on the ground, brown grass, and trees without leaves . . . . just a personal choice.

Notice that, other than the crazy cold weather, I didn't slam Minnesota.

Congrats on the no mosquitos thing, but of course under 50 degrees fahrenheit no place I know of (other than parts of Alaska) have mosquito issues any way.

Now those are perfectly good reasons for living in Florida. [emoticon]

your talking about one or two geographical areas which is why there is a higher concentration of people there, but drive through toronto, vancouver and thoes types of places and how many rv's do you see in the yards, not many compared to other areas. the largest geographical area of canad will very often see -30 or -35 in the winter..


No one lives in the largest geographical area of Canada.

I think something like 95% of the Canadian population lives within 100miles of the US border.

I see lots of RVs in Toronto. Camping if very popular there.


because there are more people there, you go to more rual areas and there is a camper in every driveway pretty much so I should rephrase my original statment to say per capata haha I did a google search it came up with 75% 90% 95% so what do you believe. the only reason for tht is because 1/2 the population of canada is ontario and quebec and there its probably 95% in BC its probably 90% or a bit less, the praries its way less. alberta the majority of the population is more than 100 from the boarder so it depends on the provence and why places were built where they were.
