Rob-When visiting the United States you must remember that our states are almost as big as your countries. I once met some people from Isreal who came to see the US. They thought that 3 months would give them plenty of time. At the end of their 3 months, they had seen part of 8 states (we have 50 states.) They decided that they would need at least 3 years just ot do a short visit to each state. They also could not believe that people here hook up thier trailers, load their 4 children in the car and take off on a 2 or 3 week vacation and travel 5000 miles (8000 km.)

A good comparison between the US and Europe-You think 400 miles (640 km) is a long ways, we think 400 years is a long time. Your history goes back a long way, we routinely travel long distances on vacations.

Wow!
What a question.
Our two countries are over 3000 miles coast to coast, and range from tropical to arctic. As two nations we boast of our Rocky Mountians, central deserts and rolling praries, palm trees of Florida and the borial forests of Northern Canada. Our Northern Territories, the Yukon and Alaska boast of the tundra, the white bears, the Eskimo,the forest, the mining the oil. Long rivers such as the Mackenzie, the St Lawrence, and the Missiissippi traverse our countries.The Great Lakes are inland seas that we share. If the USA was settled on horseback then Canada was settled by canoe. We like to think that we are different from each other but we share this great continent. Our commerce and our language ties us together and often our families live in or come from both countries. We are as diverse as all the countries of Europe and much larger. Each state of the United States and each provence of Canada is as individul as each European country. If we gather together you can not tell us apart except by our local dialects or accent. Still, we are each fiercly proud to be an American or a Canadian and would not have it any other way. We are separated from Europe by 1500 miles of water but we are separated from each other only by a line on a map. It would take many books to tell you all about us so PLEASE come and see us. Let us share this great land with you.
Jim

I will extend the same invitation to our Italian (& European) friends as I do to the member of this forum. If you come close to central Wisconsin, give me a call and I will camp with you. I can put you up for a few nights in a camper parked in the yard or at my Dad's tree farm. Everyone is welcome. Just remember, it's cold in the winter and buggy in the summer.

Oh this Italian-American-Michigander would agree!

Hi Bob,
There are also in Europe people that travel many and many Kilometers for the holiday.
For example, I have made 7.000 km with my Lander Caravan last years for holidays .
I have travel to Austria, Germany and Denmark, and in the 2005 I have a travel to Svizzera, Germany and Holland for 6.000 Km.
In Europe and in Italy there is many many many traffic and so the drive is very difficul.
The road in Italy, in the holidays period, are in this mode


Name:   autostrade.jpg
Views: 41
Size:  5.6 KB

and you can see that is very difficult travel in freeway (in Italy the freeway are very expensive... for example if you travel 500 Km of freeway, you pay 40 euro for the use, and the prise of one litre of gasoline it cost 1,4 Euro = 1,8 dollar ).
but we have many adamancy!
But in USA/Canada I think that is more easy travel... (distant from big city), more relaxant! and less expensive!

Thank's bob and sorry for my bad english!!!

In order to help the epocaravan's italians could you describe your favorite country's actractives that italian friends can visit if they decides to visit your country?

The rocky coast of Maine is a must visit. It's not just the sights but the whole atmosphere and people that make this area such a nice place to visit (or live).
From rocky cliffs to nice sandy beaches all up and down the coast there are many campgrounds and then inland we have the great forests and although nothing like the European mountains we do have some nice ones in Maine and our neighboring state of New Hampshire.
Great fishing in our lakes and streams too.

Since recreational vehicles, including our trailers, seem to be more common in the west than the east, I think the east coast is being missed. It has been many years since I have been to the Maritime Provinces of Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador), but I would like to go back again. The sights may not be as spectacular, but there are both natural wonders and rich culture and history to discover.
<blockquote>
Poiché i veicoli di ricreazione, compreso i nostri caravan, sembrano essere più comuni nell'ovest che l'est, penso che il litorale orientale stia mancando. È stato molti anni poiché sono stato alle province marittime del Canada (Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland and Labrador), ma vorrei andare ancora indietro. Le viste non possono essere come spettacolari, ma ci è sia wonders naturali che coltura e storia ricche da scoprire.

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Many people here list natural landmarks, great parks, wonderful countryside.

In addition to that, there are sites that have historical value...

One lesser known place is in my home town in Upstate New York.

The Oneida Community

It is linked to a common, everyday set of items that everyone has in their home!

The cool thing about North America is 99% of the continent is made up of just three countries, and there are natural marvels to visit in just about every region. Half a day's drive or less will get me to a place where I can watch Puffins nest at Canon Beach (Oregon) or see amazing waterfalls in the Columbia Gorge (Washington and Oregon) or climb a glacier on Mt Rainier (Washington), walk in a rain forest on the Olympic Penninsula (Washington), or hile in High Desert Country (Oregon). You'll never explore all of them in a lifetime.

The down side is there just isn't as much history to the place. Sure, you can go see Mayan ruins down in Mexico or the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings, either of which are a thousand years old or more old, but many of the earlier residents of this continent were nomadic and left few monuments to their passing. Most of the history you can visit on the American continent dates to the 16th century or later.

In Europe the situation is the opposite. The first European settlers had only recently arrived in the Americas when Shakespeare wrote his first sonet, and that's recent European history compared to the old Roman Empire. Half a day's drive from London will deliver you to ruins left by the Roman Empire and cities sacked by the Vikings, places where kings and queens gained and lost their power (and sometimes their heads), the wonders of Stonehenge, the university where Sir Issac Newton penned three of the most basic laws of physical science and another university where the structure of DNA was discovered and yet a third place where penicillin was discovered, and the apartment where where Shakespeare wrote sonets and plays. And the list goes on and on for London just as it does for Rome or Paris or Berlin. You'll never explore all of them.

Yet, for all its history, Euope lacks the natural wonders found in abundance here. Sure, there are places like the Alps, the Black Forest, and the Scottish Highlands, but nothing like the diversity or frequency of North American natural sites.

There is sooooo much to see on both continents! I wish I could visit them all.
