In the evening, dark, with widely scattered periods of light in the morning !

Could be damp, or dry, or in between, so dress in removable layers...especially for cute chicks !

Gets hot near the fire, or the wet Tee-shirt contest ! Gets cold when you fall asleep with your butt in a cooler....

Its humid in the shower, and down right damp in the pond !

The mosquitoes come out at night to bite the arses of the racoons !! But the bats get the skeeters.... so all is fair....

Timmy's coffee is always hot, but Mickee Dees prints it on the cup.....Hail makes the holes in the donuts....

Electrical storms power the blenders !

Bring everything, and use none of it !!!

Enjoy Canada EH !!!

Alcoholic beverages

Alcoholic beverages are products that exceed 0.5% alcohol by volume. If you meet the minimum age requirements of the province or territory where you enter Canada, you can include limited quantities of alcoholic beverages in your personal entitlement. Minimum ages for the importation of alcoholic beverages, as prescribed by provincial or territorial authorities, are as follows: 18 years for Alberta, Manitoba and Quebec; and 19 years for the remaining provinces and territories.

You are allowed to import only one of the following amounts of alcoholic beverages free of duty and taxes:

1.5 litres (53 imperial ounces) of wine; or
a total of 1.14 litres (40 ounces) of alcoholic beverages; or
up to 8.5 litres of beer or ale.

Note:
The CBSA classifies "cooler" products according to the alcoholic beverage they contain. For example, beer coolers are considered to be beer and wine coolers are considered to be wine. Beverages not exceeding 0.5% alcohol by volume are not considered to be alcoholic beverages.

The quantities of alcohol you can bring in must be within the limit set by the province or territory where you enter Canada. If the value of the goods is more than the free allowance, you will have to pay duty and taxes, as well as provincial/territorial assessment on the excess amount. In Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, you cannot bring more than the free allowance. For more information, check with the appropriate provincial or territorial liquor control authority before your arrival to Canada.

The 3rd annual Pre Vanfest Virtual Tour happened yesterday. We filled up my TMW Astro to the brim with Econo lovers. It was a good day but some key contacts were MIA at both the Guild and Steamwhistle.

The group with Supervan:



Two extremely cool Vanups:



Doug S's garage. Doug was a member of SOVC, one of the most travelled clubs out of Canada in the heyday, they were regulars at King City and good pals with Midwest. If ever you get a chance to visit another vanner's place jump at it. Doug's setup is amazing, he just finished off the ultimate garage behind the house.





The gurus of Econolines in front of the only van we could find, a Sprinter lol



The biggest disappointment of the day was not seeing either of the vans at Steamwhistle when I was told both would likely be there. But we did have a good tour of the brewery, then the others went up the CN Tower and we finished off the day at Wayne Gretzy's with supper on the rooftop terrace.

Today Ken,Mary Frances and Bongo are hosting the many long haulers coming from all parts at their place. Ken is already lining up some photo ops,
