    3/4 Rant

    Usually try to turn adaptive cruise off, but many cars/trucks do not make that option available. When driving those vehicles you may find that you have slowed down substantially without noticing it right away because the transition was so smooth/slow. Might be ok in heavy freeway traffic...

    Going to Canada with a DUI

    Surprised that most do not know that exactly the same thing happens to Canadians when they travel to the US, including the need for a visa in order to do any work.

    Going to Canada with a DUI

    US has same issues for Canadians if they cross with a DUI in their past. Can take some serious time and dollars to resolve, but it can be done permanently to solve the issue going to the US and suspect that a similar process is available for those coming to Canada. Working in either country...

    Desert Storm Shootout “C’Mon Man”

    My built in speed inicator is not good at telling me actual speeds but is pretty good at relative comparisons, and based upon what we saw, Fatal Attraction's first run was noticeably quicker visually than any following (even engine sound was different). But, that still does not mean that an...

    Welcome to Canada: Gulag Edition

    Hotel stay not quite in effect yet (unless your preflight test is not accepted then you are escorted, by armed guard, to the undisclosed quarantine location shown in the article), as always, the govt was not ready. Amazing that they decide to become so over cautious at the same time positive...

    Why do we stay here? -37 now -52 with wind chill.

    And thats the reason we leave Northern Alberta in the winter. Enjoyed it for enough years, no need to suffer through it at this time in our lives.

    Be careful with capacity limits on the trailer. In some states you might find yourself needing a CDL even if towing an empty trailer.

    FYI; Canada effectively shutting down travel

    FYI; Canada effectively shutting down travel

    That used to be true, but not anymore. All cross border traffic is now coordinated with both countries and on computer. You can check your I94 status anytime and it will tell you when you crossed the border, where and which direction. Apparently there might be a process to extend stays but...

    FYI; Canada effectively shutting down travel

    Now that we are here in Arizona, the Canadian govt seems to not want us to return. OK with me, but need the US govt to extend our 6 month stay to 18 to make it work, otherwise we will be in a neverland where we are not welcome back in Canada and not welcome to stay in the states. ?Maybe we can...

    Seems that your quest for the perfect RV is still on. After seeing so many pass through your driveway it might be time to think about custom building from the frame up to get what you want. On the other hand trying them all out and flipping them might be fun and sometimes profitable. For me...

    OAKVILLE, Ont. — The federal and Ontario governments are each chipping in more than $250 million to mass produce electric vehicles — and the batteries that power them — at Ford Motor Co.'s plant in Oakville, Ont.

    Canadian Inmates

    Serious lack of leadership that is able to think above grade 2 level. But Prime Minister Justin's handlers think they have an opportunity to convert the country to true socialism using the COVID as an excuse by the looks of things. Would not be surprised to see the feds close the national...
