Medical issues!

Ches i like your suggestion ,but I am really curious to know how our U.S. friends deal with ''out of country health insurance ? for us pre-existing conditions +age =impossible .Is it the same for those of you with the same problems?
My husband would have to pay $400+$'s ,cad. for a 10day trip to the U.S. Of course his age is really ''up there''
How do you all deal with travel insurance with pre-ex conditions?

Pippa
This is one of the reasons I threw this idea out there so early.Lots of pros and cons.Health care is a good one for older folks.Something else to think about.

To get close to "Central", draw a line from Houlton, MA to San Diego, CA, and from Seattle, WA to Miami, FL. That should get you pretty close to the center, and would include people on both coast, Mexico and Canada. :L
turns out [b]this spot is North Platte, Nebraska.

Not to mention

Gas prices, shrinking mutual funds etc etc, i hardly dare buy green bananas these days,Ches:banana (this guy slipped past me)But just thinking about such an event helps. Nice idea!
I'm thinking that the travel ins .issue is mainly a North to South one.

Now from the west coast we canít go in a straight line. We must go up then down to travel forward a short distance. The up and the down is MUCH harder the cruising along in high gear on flat level eastern bottom land, right?

Hey, I've camped in North Platte, NE

(NE=Nebraska for all of you who mistakeningly think NE is Northeast)

Right on 1-80.

A Holiday Trav-L-Park.

Nice place. Great swimming pool.

We sometimes hit it to clean up, rest up when we come down out of the mountains.

(We usually stay in national forests, national parks, state and provincial parks, army corps of engineers ... and use full service to regroup after weeks of dry camping.)

well I used two methods. pencil across from point to point.
then I used Map trip-er. and that's where they crossed. no I didn't use actual miles or figure in the height of the mountain. my map was flat. :)

No

No .. we're about 700 miles (1120 km) from North Platte, NE.

Just got a kick outta the fact Jana said it was the epicenter.

Y'all should stick with Salt Lake City.

There is nothing in North Platte ... for that matter, there is nothing between North Platte, NE and where I live except flat land and corn.

correction. actual milage middle is
Houlton, MA to San Diego, CA = Avoca, Iowa, NE SR-83 and I-80 1659 miles, half of 3319
Seattle, WA to Miami, FL = Lincoln, NE US-77 and I-80 1665 miles, half of 3330

these two places are 98.8 miles apart. :)

Thanks for feed back.This is just an idea at this point in time.The organization and someone from that area Utah would be needed to do a lot of leg work.
Up here by that time a passport would be required and as Pippa pointed out Medical coverage.:wave
