5 posts in this topic

Any truth 2 the rumor I heard about Canada letting the flood gates open due to a decrease in tourists n hunters n fisherman from lack of $$ weather it be gas$ or individuals being inadmissable due to the dui or other offenses ?

I havn't heard that, we did you get the info? I checked at the CA border this july and they said may/june traffic was up 7% over the past 3 years junes.

I wonder if thats due to all the canadians running over the border and back to take advantage of our weak dollar.

Don't know if that is tru either, but we just crossed and they didn't ask us any of the normal questions: Where are you from, do you have bait, do you have potatoes...

Coming back was easy too. One guy didn't even have his birth certificate / passport and we still breezed through.

I falls both ways

I'm not sure what you are talking about? Do you mean Canada is going to stop enforcing their federal immigration laws so some ex-lawbreakers can go fishing?

Fat chance! This sounds like an urban legend or Internet hoax.

Getting into Canada is not an issue if you are a law abiding citizen. If you are a felon or have drunken driving hsitory, you can deal with their laws and still get in.

I have much longer waits and more issues on the U.S. side.

FYI

    • Just use plain old spray paint in a can. I've done it many many times and seems to stick really nice. Nothing special either I can't even tell you the brand because I have no clue. But as mentioned doing 2-3 light coats helps.
    • no expert here, but heat doesn't rise. heat radiates in the direction of least resistance (R value). warm air or water rises because it is less dense than colder air or water.  If you don't insulate you will be heating the ground under your cabin and the earth is a very large heat sink $$$. get some info from an expert in the radiant field as far as tube diameter, spacing, water temp, manifolds, length of runs, and so on. it varies on amount of windows (solar) ceiling height and room type (bed, bath, living area,  storage etc.). once you pour over the tubing you get to live with it. I did my own Home 15 years ago and got some good advise (wish I would have taken it all)
    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
