Count us in the ALWAYS catagory, self protection is your RIGHT and duty. If you cant protect yourself you better stay in a gated campground and travel with a pack of other RV's.

OK, I have a 38 Automatic, but what do you do when you go to Canada?
I know better but I forgot to leave my gun at home when I headed to Whistler to ski last winter. The Canadian customs officer sent me back to the town of Sumas, just a couple blocks, to leave my wine and gun in a locker and pay rent for it. Instead of the locker I went 12 miles south to the town of Nooksack where my daughter lives and left it there.

Upon my return to Canada I believe the customs people knew that I did not rent a locker. They insisted I call my daughter and let them talk to her to learn that I had truly gone back to her house. They did not believe all, and spent the next half hour looking for the gun.

They found nothing because there was noting to find and they did not look where I would have hidden it anyhow. Then they informed us that to bring a gun into Canada is an "INDITABLE OFFENCE".

Why the obsesion with carring a firearm with you while camping?I just don't get it. Don't get me wrong ,I am not one of those people who think that no one should have guns but the authorities ...Wouldn't that be a trip. All of the sudden we would have more "authoraties" than we would know what to do with Even moreso than now. But I just don't know about why anyone feels they need to have a wepon with them while camping. Take care to all of you who do and be careful to those of you who don't

If I were camping in an isolated area, I would carry. However, in a campground? NO, I find a piece of 10/3 cable zip-tied in a loop and ducted taped works just fine.

People that THINK they need to sleep with a loaded gun on their night stand like in the movies or TV need to either move or buy a dog.

Cheeeez....get a grip.

Looks like the "haves and the have nots" are running a pretty close race.I have always thought it's better to have a weapon and not need it than to need it and not have it. And I respect the right for anyone to have a different viewpoint. Since I'm a " never leave home without it", I thought it might be wise to get legal, so I took a right to carry class. Much to my distress, I'm the only lady in a class of 15 men and old enough to be everyone's Mother. I almost backed out because I thought these guys would really resent my being there.Not to worry!! I have never been around a nicer, more considerate group of guys.

Now, I need to find a forum that I can get some good advice on Pick-ups.

...and there are nice and considerate group of guys here on Maybe there are some singles here that will talk to you and pass the advise. As for myself, I will have to pass the 'Pick-up' since I'm already taken.

Prior to leaving home it would be worthwhile to check the laws of the states you will be passing through.

Scroll down to "Non resident" on this page.

Further word of caution, if found in violation vehicles get towed, $2-300 for a car who knows for an RV's, go to jail don't pass go. Although it may get all worked out, someday, a very nice trip can and probably will be ruined.

Re: the "pick up", I am often accused of being more interested in it than her, want-a take a shot?

Joking only, with 43 years of experience I know if she even reads that the shooting will really start.

Hey, Rich that's funny BUT where I come from a truck is a farm vehicle that has duel axels and will carry about 450 bu. of wheat, then there are 18 Wheelers and Pickups. I will try to remember to call a Pickup a TRUCK!!! Now, I'm going to try to find the forum that I can get some good advice on TRUCKS and Slide-ins. I have pulled various trailers and our 5th Wheel but I'm not comfortable doing that so I bought
a slide- in and need some input concerning the best Truck for the job. I'm thinking a Dodge Dully (used, can't afford a new one).

Count us in the always carry group, thankfully I've never had to show it. I'm the type that would rather have and not need, than need and not have. Mike
