section is all about getting together with other RVers to share travel
guides that are helpful to other RVers. For it to be included here,
I must have reviewed it myself and believe it to be beneficial. If
you saw it here, please tell them so!
- I first saw this site from a Facebook link to their Camping
Road Trip Along the Natchez Trace Parkway. I really liked
their format and how the trip was laid out with great tips for RVers
about campgrounds, must-sees, links, etc. Now that I've read about
it, it's on my "must-do" list too!
- 12,000 public campgrounds - entire U.S. and Canada. "This site
provides what we believe to be the most comprehensive and geograpically
accurate US & Canada public campground locator available. Includes
all National Park, National Forest, State Park and Provincial campgrounds,
all BLM, TVA and Army engineers and military-only campgrounds, all
regional, county, city and utility-owned campgrounds." Their
main site includes being able to search for campgrounds, a camp finder
app, tips & articles and a forum to share experiences and info.
Tom Hillegass has been camping for over 40 years and started this
site for many of the same reasons I started MaliasMiles. He wanted
information on public campgrounds that isn't easily found or accurately
presented that RVers want to know when planning trips. I appreciate
his efforts and I think you will, too.
just getting around to compiling this list of helpful travel guides,
so if you have one to share, please do by sending me an email at Malia@MaliasMiles.com.
friendly as our northern neighbors are, it's still a bit intimidating
for some to prepare for a visit to or through there. As Peggi
imaginary line between Canada
and United States of America is the longest undefended border
in the world but we ARE two different countries." "As
a Canadian with 21 years of fulltime RV travels, I know
what I am looking for. The mega number of websites, phone
numbers plus extensive general information in RV Travel
to Canada simplifies your planning and adds piece of mind
to an RV Adventure in the friendly country to the north."
the big general info to useful tiny tidbits, Peggi &
John share what they've learned in their extensive travel
through this amazing land. They give you the highlights
and helpful links, featuring each province and territory
you're going through, answering questions you may have
forgotten to ask yourself:
2 cents: Peggi obviously
put a lot of time into the research and presentation of
this easy-to-understand guide to RV travel in Canada.
I particularly like that it's an eBook which you can download
instantly and makes reference and finding what you're
looking for quick and easy. Brand new updated info abounds
throughout and I think this would have been very helpful
when I was planning my own trip through Canada to Alaska.

Malia's amusements): (I'll
include these every now and then as I am reminded of a revelant
story - especially if they're irreverent!)
I got back from Alaska, I saw a posting in a forum asking for links
to sites about northern travel. I submitted my
website pages and my journal about my trip through Canada. He
wrote back with his "rejection" of my site:
- From your journal:
was also a little surprised at my reaction when I crossed the border
into America again. I heartily greeted the border guard with a "God
Bless America!" In the past month, I got tired of converting
money, trying to figure the exchange rate of loonies to dollars,
trying to convert litres to gallons, etc. The guard said he gets
that reaction all the time. I guess I'm not as un-stuck in my ways
as I thought."
find that comment offensive. Anyone with that sort of attitude should
stay home, or at least stay out of my country."
of the thin-skinned Canadian withheld in the interest of keeping
let that pass by, so I responded:
really surprised to hear you took offense at any of my remarks.
It was certainly not my intent and in fact there was nothing negative
said about Canada or its people. I was speaking strictly of my own
limitations and frustrations in dealing with confusing things like
exchange rates, calculations, etc.
of my journal entries drooled over how beautiful Canada is, "The
Canadian Rockies are really a beautiful force to be reckoned with
and I feel so unbelievably fortunate to have been treated to such
an unexpected bonus it is so much more than just the way
to Alaska...I do believe if this road is all I would have seen,
I would have still been extremely happy and content."
man) I don't think I'll take you up on your offer to
'stay out of my country.' I get positive feedback all the time from
Canadians who have read my journal and I have never had one other
person take offense. But, hey, it's your site and I can't blame
you for not linking to anything you find offensive. And when my
site is a well-known resource for RVers, I'll try not to hold it
against you. :-) (lighten up a little (thin-skinned
man) - it's a joke, eh?)... And
one more thing now that I think about it - I've got to give you
credit: you've got offensive down much better than I do! "stay
out of MY country" indeed - now THAT'S truly offensive! I am
thankful I did not meet any other Canadians as rude as you are.
if I would have read Peggi's book first, I wouldn't have so offended
this poor guy!
