  1. I am thinking about full timing in the future but am a Canadian from Ontario and would like to know how other Canadians have experienced the lifestyle. How to make sure OHIP coverage is maintained. How to get a cell phone at a reasonable price that will work in both the U. S. & Canada. What satellite/internet provider is a good one to use. Any hints or tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  2. I've written down the name of the campground and will make sure that we never go there either. Who needs attitude when on vacation!
  3. I would be interested in learning more about this. Would it be applicable to Canadian residents? Planning on retiring next May as I'll be 60 years old then. Wife will only be 57. We won't have much income but will have time to enjoy life. Not worrying about how we are going to pay for our medications would be a blessing. How would pre-existing conditions be handled? Lots of questions to be answered.
  4. It is a marvelous park!! We spent 2 weeks there at the end of April/11. It has all the facilities that you want/need. It was toward the end of the season so most of the Snowbirds were on their way home, but everyone that was there was very friendly. The Tiki bar seems to be the rallying spot. It is about a 1/2 hr from most local sites by car. We do not tow, but we rented while there. I am envious and just wish that I could be there, but unfortunately we still work (ever notice that WORK is a 4 letter word)!!
  5. You are doing what we are contemplating. Going fulltime that is. We are relative newbies too, with owing a motorhome for the past 4 years. We are loving every minute we can spend in it and long for the days when we are not restricted to 4 weeks holidays per year. We wish you good luck & happy travels. Keep us posted as to how you are enjoying your adventure.
  6. I have never tried to import a motorhome from Florida, however we are insured with Wayfarer Insurance Brokers, Beaverton, Ontario 1-800-461-0318. We have had a couple of claims and have found the service to be excellent and the rates are competitive as well.
  7. Living in Ontario, Canada, we don't have many hurricanes and I must admit I don't ever want to experience one. They say to get out of your vehicle and lay flat in a ditch and protect your head with your arms. I'd rather get out of town before it arrives. We do try to keep the gas tank topped up and will be even more vigilant now. I'd like to know I have plenty of gas in case we have to leave and also use the generator for an extended period. Should we keep the fresh water tank topped up as well? We tend to fill it half full to decrease the weight. We really appreciate the information you have given us.
  8. I guess we're going to have to get into the 21st century. We don't travel with a computer as we are not computer literate to say the least. That's on our "to do" list since we hope to one day have a nice long trip. It would be nice to see what the weather is like back home and in the surrounding areas. We also have to set up and use the weather radio we bought. We try to find a radio station that has news and weather on it but that is not always possible. I have written down those websites for future use and really appreciate the time you took to answer my questions. Thank you!
  9. Thank you so much for the information. I have driven in snow, sleet, heavy rain, high winds. I don't enjoy that kind of weather and have stopped to wait it out at times. I was wondering if I should have a kit ready in case we have to evacuate the RV. We were in Berrien Springs, Michigan last year when a severe thunderstorm occured. We were in the middle of a field and really didn't know what to do. We have purchased a weather radio (but I must admit we haven't used it yet). We just got back from Florida and drove by a town hit by those awful tornados. Should we have bottled water, our prescriptions, some clothing, money, passports in a bag somewhere? How many days should we allow for? Sorry it took me so long to reply, I'm not very good at using the computer and it took me a while to figure out how to get back to you.
  10. We are traveling to Florida in the near future and were wondering what we should do if we are in severe weather. We are relatively new RVers and travel with our cat. Should we have a bag packed - and if so - what should be in it? We do have a portable cage to put our cat in but it would need to be assembled first. Any tips would be appreciated.
