Yeah, that's on our hit list. We've been to Pismo for the vintage trailer rally before and I think it was Steamers we went to one night.

Let us know when you're in the Canadian Rockies, you never know where we might be, we could crash your campsite.

Liked Canada, but probably won't go back for a while. Scenery was quite beautiful.

We were not thrilled that the weather was a bit wet and that costs were a bit higher than we see in CA.

All our campgrounds were close to the train tracks and we grew tired of horns. Better planning and reservations might have helped. We did enjoy watching the trains being built in Golden.

Canadian customs were professional and personable.

US customs required a vehicle and coach search by agricultural agents. All professional and informative.

Travel safe. Pat

There are some real values in Canada. You just have to look for them.

Travel safe and make the smiles. Pat

The girls spent a lot of time looking for value.

Yes, one of those smiles. Pat

Things are definitely more expensive in Canada. You do have to factor in the exchange rate though. We're in the US right now and even though many things seem less, when you consider the exchange rate not so much. I just consider it the cost of travel.

CL - It's not just the exchange rate, it's the metric vs the english system of weights and measures. And possibly it's knowing where to purchase products on your home turf. Safeway is less expensive with a club card in the US. Costco is a good place to shop if you are a member. Not being keyed in to good deals is the price of traveling. A little wine and some sun helps ease the pain.

Travel safe and enjoy the smiles. Pat
