RE: Canada border crossing

While we're on the topic of Sweden, here's an interesting take on their predicted verus actual results...it's a short read, don't be scared. https://www.spectator.co.uk/article/can-we-trust-covid-modelling-more-evidence-from-sweden?fbclid=IwAR1BVpIlED2Bp8sJg3CLbGr1ONonQtSe3xv7UdOVF6Ejm8HM5xvGGRzsfAw As was stated the more you test the more you will likely find. Perhaps deaths and ICU cases are a better comparison. Sweden with a population approximately equal to our 4 western provinces reports 3313 deaths and 500+ in ICU. Our 4 western provinces have a total of 269 deaths and 26 in ICU. Quebec on the other hand had the misfortune to have the virus get into the population before they realized, have results more in the line of Sweden despite having a somewhat lower population. Sweden is counting on having better immunity in the population going forward. Time will tell.

RE: Electric Fire Places

I think it depends on the type of weather you camp in. For us, in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, it is probably the most used item in our trailer.The air conditioner gets turned on about once a year to see if it still works. Our fireplace (supplied with the trailer) did short out after 10 years and of course the the manufacturer was out of business. I replaced it with a dimplex.

RE: Looking for revelstoke recommendations

Stayed there several years ago, don't remember where, but it backed on the railway. Avoid that with all the oil trains going through. Great area.

RE: Two Weeks in Canada

The problem in Jasper is that Whistlers, by far their largest campground, is being totally rebuilt and will remain closed until 2021. The KOA you mention will be at Hinton, about 15 minutes outside the Park Gate, an hours travelling time from Jasper Townsite and a bit more to most of the attractions you will want to see. I just wanted to be sure you are aware of this.

RE: Thinking about downsizing to a B

I recently saw an ad for a 2015 Leisure travel B van on a Sprinter with a slide and a dry rear bath. The bed was in the side slide. I don't recall the model but if you Google Leisures 2015 models you will probably find it. They no longer make B units. Only small Cs.

RE: 2004 Minnie Winnie question

It is usually the cold. My understanding is that if a floor covering is totally glued down it prevents cracking. I don't know if this is forever but even new ones will split on a dealers lot in the cold. When I factory ordered mine in 2008 I stipulated the floor covering be totally glued and so far so good. Some others nearby have split. I believe Triple E would have totally glued your current one. U.S. manufacturers?? May just glue the edges and hope it goes south.

RE: Dempster Hwy Planning Questions

Thanks for the suggestion of the 2 rental companies. Has anyone heard of the rental companies Driving Force or Go North? If so, any feedback? Looks like they might have rentals for those roads. Judging from the pictures of Sue Thomas there is a lot of color in the Fall in the Far North. Not hardwood trees but other kinds of vegetation. It doesn't last long and that's why I am trying to get a good estimate of when to get there. We have driven up to Alaska and Yukon several times before but never in the Fall. Unfortunately we don't have the time this year. Thanks, Ambrose You are right, it can be quite colorful in places. It isn't so much the trees, it is the shrubbery and even smaller vegetation on the slopes. See the Tombstone Territorial Park pictures. We were in Tombstone after mid Aug and color was starting. We were in Denali prior to Labour day and it was getting quite colorful. I think maybe a period centred around Sept 1 might work. Why don't you email the Tombstone Interpretive Centre for their thoughts on the best time. Perhaps they even know of some RV rentals that service that area.

RE: RCMP seek witnesses - Liard Hot Springs death investigation

I find it strange that the authors of the articles speak about the 2 suspects as having spent a good bit of time in the past 2.5 years doing survivalist activities in the bush. Then in the next paragraph comment that there is only one road going and coming in the area where the latest vehicle fire occurred. Sue, you must know quite a few people who are capable of living off the land, especially in summer. Have you or do you know of police officers who can live off the land and might the next level of searching be in that method? :)Searchers could be supported. I imagine they would have other options such as infrared heat detection from aircraft or drones. I believe that is how they captured Borque in N.B. It is just that in this case the uninhabited area is vast, particularly if they are not sure they are still there.
