      Bob & Shirl Thompson I'll look forward to hearing about any RV spots you happen on to in Florida. Our plans are Key West next year. Possibly Spring before the kiddos get out of school.

        Bruce and Carol Shephard Our plans were for Key West this winter but those plans got blown away with the wind so we'll probably be going next year as well. We'll be in Georgia in March though.

        SACnFrau Looked into flag etiquette a bit more, seems flying a foreign national flag alone is fine, subject to local laws (could not find anything for Florida). If host nation's flag is also flown, there are rules to follow. Still, you might get comments from ne...  more

    Well I went through the FCMA/Verizon signup process. I had to sign up for the FCMA auto renewal for 2 years. It will be interesting to see when I need to renew with FCMA as I just joined for one year. Will I need to renew in 3 years or 2 years?

        Charles Truax I called Verizon. Without an order number they could not do anything. They suggested that I go back to the site and look for a support number. I tried following the link back only to discover that the site is not working. It hangs partway through.

      Brian & Anne We found iroam.com as a convenient cell/text/data provider. Just use the sim card with any unlocked phone. Pay as you go, we actually use it all the time now as a regular cell phone. It's Canadian based roaming sim.

      Lindsay Amy & Chase's Adventures with Mable US Cellular works where a lot of carriers won’t in the U.S.  We also use Total Wireless, they use Verizon towers, but expect no coverage in Canada. We downloaded an app called “Hangouts Dialer” you can make free calls in North America.  So wh...  more

    I'm trying to get a motorcycle carrier/lift for the back of my Monarch Monaco. There are NO Canadian manufacturers, of course, and the one reasonably priced manufacturer (Might Hauler) won't ship to Canada! Arrrg!

      Charles Truax Yes, there has a Boss carrier. It is a ramp type that hangs off the hitch. I have been looking for a lift type. Thank you.

      Ron & Linda According to their website, The Hitch House in Barrie, ON sells and installs  Hydralift motorcycle lifts.  A fellow I used to know had one installed on the back of his Monaco coach for hauling his Goldwing GL1800.

        Charles Truax I took a hard look at the Hydralift. It weighs almost as much as my bike and costs about $7,000. This is way over kill for my needs. Thanks.
