RE: GPS recommendations

Been using my Garmin RV 760 LMTGPS for quite a while. It has a 7inch screen and comes with a suction cup mount You can use it in RV Mode or Normal vehicle mode when not using the RV. The Rv Mode gives you RV Routing and Warnings, Directions to RV Parks and RV Services. Weather via Smartphone link as well as traffic conditions. I would give mine two thumbs up. Funny story I was heading on the highway to the B.C Ferry and it was telling me to go off of the highway and take a different route. Knowing that the route forward was the best and quickest I ignored it, bad decision within a few miles we were stopped and crawling along the highway. Won’t make that mistake again. Like all GPSes you have to be aware where it is leading you too but all in all pretty good....Mike

RE: Travel into Canada

If you do believe your trip to Canada is essential and can persuade Canadian Customs you might make it in. There are ways to transport weapons and you can discuss that with them ahead of time and file the required paperwork. But Please! Please! Don’t lie to them when they ask and don’t try to hide your weapon. They are really good at their job and the consequences are more than you want to pay. And we really would rather keep you as a friend and for you to come and enjoy our country.....Mike

RE: Celebrating our 50th anniversary...

Happy Anniversary. You two obviously chose wisely. 9000 ft I don't even fly that high. I live at sea level. If the sky is clear they sent a Comet for you to enjoy in the North West sky. Have a great holiday......Mike

RE: Good Oyster Digging & Clamming Spots on Vancouver Island

As you go by Qualicum Beach on the old highway there is a road on the right called Kincade before you get to Riverside Rv park. Turn right go to the end of street and park. Don’t take the bend to the left. Walk over the berm and angle to the left toward the water. Good clamming, oysters and suntanning, Don’t forget you need a fishing licence and there is a daily allowance per licence. Study the saltwater fishing guide and have fun. Riverside Rv park looks like a fun place if you have kids. Water slide pool and games. Be careful don’t catch the virus even though there is no limit....Mike P.S. this place is a secret so don’t let anyone else know. :B

RE: Longer closure gathering momentum...

On Vancouver Island the reason we have lower stats with the Virus is “We have a moat around us” :) Sorry if you think we are being harsh with the border but we have worked very hard to avoid this Virus and it would be a shame to negate that now. This thing is not done with us yet. It is better to err on the side of caution. When you look at the number of people who have died from this it is hard to see each one on its own. I bet their families would have liked us to have done more. I hope there is a light at the end of this dark tunnel......Mike

RE: Be Kind!

Stewart B.C. vows to look after their Neighbour a small Town in Alaska that has no access other than crossing the US Canadian Border. This is the Way it should be. Proud to be a Canadian. I quote a comment left on the CBC web page. “Invisible lines are no match for people with big hearts” How true. CBC News.CA

Be Kind!

It’s terrible what is happening right now. People are scared and in fear of losing there loved ones. We are all in this together. This Virus is not picky on who it attacks. We need to support and help each other and to do what we can. This is a time to make it about someone else not about you. Be Kind, stay safe and do what you can to stay healthy......Mike

RE: US Closes Mexican and Canadian borders

The closure is mainly to stop the virus from crossing the border. There are lots of exceptions to the closure such as the free movement of trade. Canadians can always return to their home country. As is the case with Americans crossing to return to theirs. If you are sick you will be isolated in your own country if you arrive by land. If flying you might not be allowed on board. If you arrive from any other Country you must self isolate for 14 days.

RE: Looks like the Canadian border is CLOSED.

Too much false information. The Canadian border is closed to all foreigners except Canadians or permanent residents of Canada and Americans. The recommendation is to avoid non essential travel at this time. You should self isolate yourself if you have been in contact someone who has the virus to avoid spreading it to others. This would not be a good time to visit as most restaurants and bars will be closed. Gatherings of more then 50 people is also banned. There is no sports being played and the ferries have reduced sailings. Hospitals have cancelled all elective surgeries in case there is a surge of those with COVID 19. The recommendation is to return to your home and to practise social distancing.......If you are young and healthy you more then likely will recover from this virus. Those that are older with health issues could have a far worse experience......Be safe....Be kind....and Good luck...Mike
