      Dave and Doris December 26, 2018 Along St Mary's river near Aune Osborn campground is the best old fashion burger joint ever Clyde's Drive-in. The tour boat through the locks was a fun afternoon.

        CVP December 26, 2018 Thanks for the burger recommendation.  We are thinking a boat tour would be good while we are there.  Do you know if this area is walkable, or will we need to rent a car, since we are currently without a toad?
    • CVP
      Dave and Doris December 30, 2018 Soo Locks Boat Tours & Dinner looks like it’s walking distance from Aune Osborn. Don’t know for sure but there must be transportation up and down the strip. Maybe even a water taxi or shuttle. We were there just for a day trip while traveling through Canada.

    December 13, 2018Ok, our turn. Looking for a spot near Ft Meyers. Seems impossible to find anything under $1500/mnth. We can swap spots with someone if that would work. We are currently in Nokomis 1 mile from the beach. Any help greatly appreciated.

      Mark and Laura Alward November 27, 2018 Couple things to know.  The tow truck driver will remove your driveshaft, most likely your generator exhaust pipe , and tie up your rear mud flap.  I asked the dealer to check torque because the driver just tightened it.  I hope he installe...  more
