Hi Everyone,

Thanks Doug for gathering some interest in our little meet and spreading the word about our Loons...

The direct link to the site is:

http://members.shaw.ca/glass.eggs.th...mber_2007.html

All the contact details, rates etc. are there as well as the dwindling number of sites available. There will be another group beside us so we are limited in the number of sites available. I might be able to squeeze one or two more. We have sites 1 through 18, 20 and 22.

This will be our tenth meet.

Craig

Come On People...., only 2 spots left and we'd REALLY really like to NOT have to turn any unused sites back to the campground because then we'd prolly have stickies between our Eggs and you know what a combination THAT makes

...yes, I see your name up there on the list. Do you need help/any questions about coming up here??

Your 'kids", would these be the 4 legged or two legged kind? The 4 legged ones (I think) are a 'toonie' each!!!

...oh, we have had a rather serious mosquito outbreak here (especially there, due to its closeness to a river), and the campground IS taking measures to reduce their numbers, but it might just pay you to pack a little (extra) of whatever you choose to use to repel those pesky l'il kritterz!!!

My kidders are the two legged kind, although with two of then that makes four legs! What are the rules about bringing the four legged kind across the border, anybody happen to know? I'm sure I will have some questions, stay tuned. Thanks for the heads up on the skitters, I hate them I always get eaten alive!

Sharon from Seattle meet Sharen from Whidbey Island. We're signed up for #10 at Fort Langley on Sept 14/15, so see you there. We've long wished to travel in B.C., so this will be fun, and what a beautiful time of year.

Like Sharon, we have questions about crossing the border with a rig. I know they like us to travel with our US Passports, so OK on that. And car registration docs, but what about rig docs?

- What should we expect with respect to towing the Casita? Anything special we should know to ease the crossing? No fresh fruits and veggies?

- We plan on bringing Keeper and True, our Westie and Golden. What documents are required for entering Canada and then returning to the US?

And thanks for the heads-up about the mozzies. Bug spray. Agrhhh. Ticks too?

Thanks,
Sharen

I've been in and out of BC from Washington State a number of times in the last 3 years. With my dog.

All they ever ask for is my passport and the piece of paper from my vet that demonstrates that the dog's shots are up to date. I think rabies is the most important.

Once I was stopped at a small crossing about 200 miles east of Vancouver. The guy at the crossing asked to see the inside of my 13' Scamp. I opened it up at which time he explained that the inspection was strickly personal. He and his wife were looking at FG eggs.

So I gave him the full tour. He took pictures.

Most of the bases have been covered here, except the kids. They each need some form of gov't issued I.D. (I think). Pets NEED current rabies docs. One should ALWAYS carry car and trailer related paperwork, ie proof of ownership/insurance papers, etc.

For you folks coming from the United States of America to the Fort, you might want to consider crossing at the Aldergrove (B.C.) crossing. It is closest and most direct route to camping at the Fort.

From Bellingham, north off I-5, you'd want to take the Guide Meridian Exit (not sure of exit # even though I use it alot in our tours in N.W. WA!!!) and keep on heading North till you hit the snow line !

Top up with gas at the station right before the border.

NOTE: this crossing is NOT open 24 hours a day, but I'm not sure when it shuts down either. It DOES open at 8:00A.M.

Leave all firearms and weapons of mass destruction back on the farm. Customs Canada does NOT like competition

Can't wait to see all these new fresh faces!!

As we are on holiday(s), the Trailer Goddess and I are going to try an "power park" ....get there early, maybe even that Thursday morning (We have sooo far to travel to get there from way up here on the hill!!)

There is food available at the on site diner (GREAT GRUB TOO) and 'town' with all its touristy shops AND the refurbished Fort is only a short walk into town, MAYBE 1/2 mile. so far no one in our group has mentioned anything about our usual pot-luck meeting so I can't recommend anything you folks might want to consider bringing to the communal buffet/meeting .... but finger food(s) are always a good thingy

Don't forget there is also an inground swimming pool here folks!!!

Hi all,

I managed to get a coupel more sites since we filled all 20 that we had. One of the three I picked up was immediately taken so if you've been thinking about coming to Fort Langley for our meet you better jump fast!

A short note to newbees coming to our meet...

This time of year the pollens and such are fairly in these parts, and you will be nesting in a grassy/woodsy setting.

Might be a good for those of you who suffer from allergies to pack whatever it is you'd take to relieve your symptoms..
