  1. Was surprised when this truck pulled in beside us at the Thunder Bay KOA.
  2. Don't get to see the Rockies until we get closer to Calgary. We go through the Thunder Bay area every few years on our way to Val-d'Or Quebec to visit friends. If the border remains closed this summer we may be heading that way again. Usually stop at the KOA there.
  3. Hi Carl, We have a monitored system that was installed about a year ago to replace the old system. It is a combo of wired and wireless sensors for alarm, fire, flooding. Can arm/disarm detached garage and house independently from cell phone, tablet or PC. Will email me on breach our entry/exit. Is Alexa enabled so arming is easy by voice. I have a small app (tinyCam Pro) on my cell and tablets for monitoring 9 wireless camera's. Also, tried a new Reolink solar powered battery powered wireless camera on our back driveway and has worked very well at motion alerts and live monitoring away from
  4. will they give us any more site beyond the 41 if they open up?
  5. WOW! how many sites did they give us?
  6. Tim, I've traveled with Chad and Dave. I just get out of the way and let those big horse power trucks lead the way and maybe catch the draft! Have fun in "Q" wish I could join you guys. I'm just hoping the border is open by WCR time. Locked down in Canada.
  7. WOW! That's great news for the rally....better tell Carol to get some more spots for us!!!
  8. Made our reservation this morning. Crossing our fingers that the border will be open by then! Will also be bringing our SxS with us.
  9. Going to make the reservation soon...hope the border is open by June.
  10. Here is a picture of our 2006 turbo diesel 450. Here is the 453 2017 turbo gas SC
  11. The car is well inside the width of the mirrors so it doesn't look that obvious. It seems the trick to loading on angles with the new DCT is to use the hand brake and (not the foot brake) and accelerator petal at the same time.
  12. I installed airline L-track to the back of bench and purchased 4x L-track seat belts.

    Carl, Yes the one I have comes on with motion. Also, if you do the hardwired kit it will stay in parked mode for monitoring when not in vehicle and has a low voltage cutoff setting so if batteries get to low will turn off dashcam. Hardwired kit

    Hi Carl, I just changed my 1080P dashcam to this VIOFO A129 Pro new 4K dashcam last trip. I can now make out license plates much better and has really good video. I also bought an extra GPS mount to move to the Smart Car and the the remote Bluetooth button which I mounted on the dash that can trigger the camera to save picture and video quickly since camera is not reachable from seating position. Since this uses a lot of data to record 4K I bought a 256Gb micro SD card. There are a lot less expensive dashcams out there but I have been happy with this one so far. The WiFi app is nice and park
  15. I have never noticed any condensation at all in this area.
