Hi Alf
South of the Border, down America way
That’s where I beat the cold and beat
the mold and had a nice stay.
But I’m home in St Thomas and planning
my garden for Spring.
So the Joys of Niagara again I can sing.

To the tune of the Bob Wills classic, South of the Border.

Good to hear from you Alf, glad you had a great trip. Hope my comments don’t get the boot ( a left foot)

Hi: Kevin A... WELCOME in advance!!! You're right, lots to see n do. We look forward to meeting you there. Did they give you a site #?

Coming on the 15th and staying until the 21st, have no clue on what site number as they didn't give me one. This will be my first Niagara Wine rally and I really look forward to it.

damarchman 03-14-2020 10:32 AM

Coming on the 15th and staying until the 21st. Looking forward to the rally, first time for the Niagara Wine. Didn't get a site number, didn't think to ask. As the song goes, see you in September. :thumb

If youíve not been to the Falls or even if you have thereís a lot to do in the area. From visiting wineries to the beauty of the parkway, the quaint beauty of Niagara on the Lake, youíll have a good time. If you decide to make a day of it around the Falls there used to be a ticket package for several attractions that will save you some money. I only hit one or two restaurant buffets in a year and can tell you Breakfast at Bettys on Sunday morning is one of the best Iíve come across.

Yes all fiberglass are definitely welcome. I’d list the numerous brands I’ve seen there over the past 6 years but I’d leave someone out. You are welcome and hopfully there will be other delightful Pennsylvanians.

Susan, if you are willing to travel a bit, there is a rally in New Hampshire from the 14th thru the 17th of May. You can see it on the side bar under the title of Spring Fling in New England. The info is there, and all fiberglass trailers are welcome. Don.

I hope this passes before our planned 2 trips to Canada, one in August and this one. I read today that the border is closing to all but necessary crossings.

Hereís what Iím hoarding. The strawberry jello is for my super carp doughball bait. Got my light spinning rods ready to go yesterday. Have to do something positive every day. I have plenty to do.
Iowa Dave

Alf S. 03-19-2020 08:14 AM

Hi: Iowa Dave... Now why on earth would you give perfectly good Jello to some carpy fish? :confused: Alf
Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie:wave

Iowa Dave 03-19-2020 08:37 AM

I buy the cheap jello on sale for the carp bait and the good stuff for myself. We ate a lot of jello coming up. Two “recipes”, Lime jello with pineapple in it, and my mom’s specialty, orange jello with about a pound of shredded carrots in it. Always made in a large glass baking dish. At Christmas, my dad would get tuned up and we would make a large Jello salad. About three boxes of jello, sliced apples, sliced bananas, green grapes, a can of cherries, and black walnuts picked out of the nuts in the back yard. Then we would float mini marshmallows on the top. That was a holiday treat. We made it in a rose tinted, fluted glass bowl. Everything set up at a different level, I guess it was my first lesson in specific gravity.

Hey Alf, there is a town not too far from Niagara, NY called Le Roy- where there is a jello museum Home since it was first made there.

A friend called today and the campground is not taking any new reservations for now. They also reported having a lot of cancellations.
Fingers crossed I guess.
The rally is well after Labor Day and hopefully the border will be reopened and things will ease up by then. Sure hope so.

Hi: WaltP... Thanks for the info. Things are cautiously starting to open up here in Ontario. Tourist areas look to be the last on the list. I don't know what the rally will look like this year? Camping at best!!! This pandemic sure lends a new meaning to "Keep your distance".

scotty61 06-23-2020 09:02 AM

Hi Alf... with this covid-19 going on, my charity ride has been postponed to September... guess what weekend? The same as the rally!!! So not sure we can make it this year as I missed the charity ride last year due to health reasons. Don't count us out just yet though! Going to see what I can wrangle so I can do both if possible.

UPDATE as of July 07!!!
 
Hi: All... At present Niagara Wine Escape is on, but in a much modified form. No potluck dinner, beer/wine exchange. No day visitors allowed into the park to view trailers and any doors open allowed only at the discretion of the owners. We will have a socially distanced campfire at site 52, and other groups may have one too. Doesn't matter which side of the fire you sit on you will get smoked!!! Wear a mask if you feel more comfortable with one on.
Niagara board of health has let the Riverside CG. open... BUT NOT THE WASHROOMS. The border is still closed to cross border travel except for business.
This will change as Ontario opens up!!! :bh
Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie:wave

Iowa Dave 07-09-2020 08:41 AM

Rally
 
We have not contacted Celia regarding our reservations but itís starting to look pretty iffy for US citizens being able to attend the rally. One of the ironic twists is the restroom closing at Riverside Campground. This is probably the cleanest restroom Iíve ever used in a campground and Iíve camped a lot of places. The little plastic triangle on the floor warning of a wet, just mopped floor seems to be always there because someone always seems to be cleaning. Immaculate. Best description.
That said, the sewer hookup sites allow most escapes and many others to have everything they need right at their site.
If things go off the way Alf has described there will still be fun to be had.
Keeping fingers crossed

Last I knew the campground owner was not accepting reservations from US citizens because nobody knows how long the border will be closed.

CompactJR-Sailor 07-28-2020 08:36 AM

Sorry Alf, Looks like we will not be coming this year. I don't see any travel between US and Canada this year. Hope your able to come to Florida this winter.

Hi: All... Calling all Canadian campers!!! The WASHROOMS are now open. One shower and two toilets/sink basins on each side for social distancing. Celia has asked for people to call for Rez's. They have spaces available.
As the song goes... "See you in September". Bring masks and hand sanitizer for your comfort.
Alf S. North shore of Lake Erie:wave

WaltP 08-07-2020 02:49 PM

Of course I'm jealous and disappointed, but I hope all Canadians above the border have a great time and this Canadian below the border will just have to look forward to twice as much fun next year.
Guess I need to call Celia and formally change my res to 2021.

Going to try to get out with a couple HC1s this year Alf and maybe an HCT if we can get it here in time.

CindyL 08-07-2020 03:32 PM

We have not canceled yet, I don't think, but I scheduled dental appointments during this rally yesterday. Raise a glass for us, as we get our teeth cleaned after months of not being able to do this.

See you next year and "rally" for a vaccine in the meantime.

Jon Vermilye 08-07-2020 04:14 PM

I'm still hoping since the last I read the border was closed until August 21...

They've been extending the closure a month at a time. I wouldn't expect the border to open this year, given the performance of the U.S. leadership. Canadians wouldn't stand for it.

WaltP 08-07-2020 07:18 PM

I pretty well agree Glenn but it won't hurt to wait another couple of weeks to cancel, just in case.

Jon Vermilye 08-08-2020 09:22 AM

To be honest, I have to agree with Glenn, but one can only hope! It is too bad they can't use an area decision. Our section of NY has very low Covid 19 figures, so the short drive to the border & across would likely be fine. Still, I understand and appreciate Canada's approach.

emers382 08-09-2020 08:28 PM

It's great to be hopeful but most Canadians at least from what I've seen on social media are adamant they want the border to stay closed. Today we canceled our Sept. weekend at the New Ulm MN rally as know it's very likely we cannot get there. I can't even drive three miles south of town to get gas or pick up packages anymore. Our border crossing is nothing but trucks now.

While I do not disagree that the border remaining closed is the most beneficial/safest situation for Canadians, I have to disagree with the implication (statement) that ďCanadians wouldnít stand for it.Ē

Canadian citizens are no more able to effect policy than citizens of the US, period. All policy is established by elected government at multiple levels, whether it be State or Provisional, Federal or Confederational (not sure what term is used in Canada to label the highest level based in Ottawa). But fortunately for Canadians, the governmental authorities are and have based their policies on rational, medical and scientific principles rather than wishful economic thinking/desire. If they hadnít, the borders would now be open regardless of what the average Canadian wants.

CindyL 08-10-2020 09:13 AM

We postponed until next year. See you then.

Yes! We have re-booked our spot #69 after canceling earlier this year! See you all there!

Jon Vermilye 08-14-2020 12:42 PM

Well, the border is now closed until September 21, so I reluctantly canceled my reservation. Since the plan was to drive through Canada to get to the Algonac Rally the week before the Niagara rally, I canceled that as well. Looks like the trailer is going to live in the driveway!

WaltP 08-14-2020 01:15 PM

Yep. I'll cancel now also. Too bad.
Hoping for next year.

Walt

We just cancelled also. We are really sad. Going too
miss all our friends.
Thatís two trips to canal cancelled this year.

Still planing on Algonac and Brown county, IN.

Hope too see everyone at borerama next July.
