    BC Hwy 99 to 97 from Vancouver and other passes

    Yes, it is mountain driving. Lots of switchbacks with very sharp immediate inclines once you turn the hairpin corner. It was not fun. Intense driving (and some cursing) made it a less than desirable route. I'd avoid that experience in the future (including the cussing) and do a more relaxed less stressful route - that's all. Probably personal preference.
  2. We'll be making reservations for our 30' fifth wheel + truck to make the jaunt from Tsawwassen (Vancouver) to Schwartz Bay on Vancouver Island for a mid-June sail. Other than storing the bikes inside the fiver so we don't have to pay for extra length, anyone have suggestions on either the ferry trip or some great BC campgrounds on that gorgeous island. I'll also check RVParkreviews but would love to hear from you, too. Thanx.

    We took Hwy 99 from Whistlee to Cache Creek... oi vey. Never again. We have a 30' fifth wheel and a 2500 diesel truck... not fun. I suggest you revise your itinerary.

    Tips for Traveling to Canada

    In 2015 we crossed into Canada from Havre, MT and found the Canadian road was gravel for about 50 miles through the prairie. That border crossing was open 8 am - 5 pm. Unfortunately, our truck broke down about 1 mile north of the border crossing and we were there from 11 am - 8 pm waiting for a tow (truly out in the boonies). The customs/border guys were understanding and great (even brought us popsicles on their way home from work🌞). We eventually camped in Cypress Hills National Park - quite lovely - and then Maple Creek (for two weeks while the truck was repaired) at Willowbend Campground (very nice folks, spacious cg, and convenient to town). It's fun to be there on July 1 - their national holiday. The Canadians have nice in their DNA. Enjoy Sas.
  5. We are evaluating satellite antennas as we prepare for full-time living in our fifth year - commencing next summer. From what I have read lots of travelers like the CarryOut G2+. We're also considering the smaller Winegard Trav'ler (which is very spendy - as we say in Oregon). Anyone have experience with the Trav'ler? I wonder if it is worth almost $700 more than the other units? Thank you for your input.
  6. I want to attend an event in Pasadena in Feb. 2018 and would appreciate your thoughts on a good place to park our 27-5L for four or five days. Eastshore looks like it is a time intensive trek in the morning to the Metro Gold Line (need to be in Pasadena by 8:15). Anything in the SF Valley? Or a family who would like to host us in their driveway? Thank you for your ideas.
  7. Just FYI, if you have the interest read The Girls of Atomic City prior to going there. It's a good read and facinating history. Then do the tour while there.
  8. We live in Oregon's "banana belt" - about 26" of annual precipitation - some sun and some nasty winds in the winter. We are researching covers for our 30' Arctic Fox 5th wheel. The rig will be in place for about five months while we recover from surgery. We want to preserve the finish and have already noticed some trim piece deterioration due to UVs. I've looked at PermaPro, ADCO, and Calmark (too expensive) and read reviews that rave about the product or moan about it. What are your experiences? Thank you and happy holidays to all.
  9. For Sale: 2015 Arctic Fox Fifth wheel furniture – includes the recliner ($300), Jackknife sofa (including air mattress - which resides in its base – a very large storage drawer) $200, dining table ($250) and its four chairs ($50 ea.) . The upholstery on the chairs is Arctic Fox’s 2015 graphic design white/black/grey. These are practically new because we removed them within months of taking ownership and prior to travel. This furniture is currently located in Roseburg, OR. Please email me if interested: Lindaclary1@gmail.com. Thank you for your interest.
