There is a Campingworld south of Bellingham and all kinds of stores in Bellingham.

Thank you for your reply. I certainly hope we are not buying anything or much there. Don't know if we want to take a chance on sending by UPS. We will have to get a better idea of what we can fit and see if that is all of the must-haves. It occurred to us to take a trailer up there with our stuff but that is more trouble than it seems worth. We expect to be on the road for several weeks coming back and won't have most of our trailer items.

Corps of Engineers and many others charge only a quarter for three minutes, varies a little but nowhere near that expensive. That's all right. We are making a wide berth around some parts of Canada where we hear some people may not have had a shower for weeeeks! You will note that some people have to check with their wives as to anything regarding showers!

Our cheap loonie for 5 minutes, is not a lot more than your quarter for 3.

Not sure where you got this defamatory info about Canadians, but I can say living here my entire life, I have never heard of it. Just to be clear, we don't all live in igloos or sod huts any more either.

Expecting to see Escape "igloos" or Eggloos. Heard the shower thing on Fiberglassrv. LOL
I have no doubt that most Canadians are cleaner than most Americans not to mention the country in general. I hear the provincial parks are great and am looking forward to staying at those.
