Winter camping For most of us, the camping gear is in storage and our 2021 camping memories will carry us thru yet another winter. In the meantime, if you want to get in the mood for the upcoming season, there's nothing better than spending some time at an RV show. Last year, all shows were cancelled due to Covid-19 but this year, some shows are making a comeback (note that some shows haven't yet published their 2021-2022 dates because of Covid-19). To see the ones already announced, see "Upcoming RV shows" below, select a show from the list and click on the "Go" button to get more information about that specific show. You can also click here to see a complete list.

If you're one who loves winter camping, check out our Winter RVing tips, our Winter camping tips as well as our Winter camping checklist. According to the Farmer's Almanac, this winter season is shaping to be a cold and snowy winter! You can read more about this here. If you're brave enough to go winter camping, check out our Winter RVing tips, our Winter camping tips as well as our Winter camping checklist.

Poison Ivy Poison Ivy Poison Oak Poison Tumac Poison ivy typically grows as a vine or shrub, and it can be found throughout much of North America. Poison ivy plants typically have leaf arrangements that are clustered in groups of three leaflets. The plant may have yellow or green flowers, and white to green-yellow berries, depending on the season. Poison oak also grows as a vine or shrub and is found in the western United States and British Columbia. It has a leaf arrangement similar to poison ivy. Poison sumac on the other hand, grows as a shrub or small tree and is only found in eastern/southeastern United States. When infected by one of these, you get a rash within 12-72 hours. Skin may become red, swollen and/or itchy. Rash usually appears bumpy, streaky and linear. Fluid may discharge from blisters but isn't contagious. Within 20-30 minutes of exposure, rinse the affected area with lots of warm water to remove the oily plant resin. You can also use soap or rubbing alcohol to help with the resin removal. The rash slowly improves and disappears after one to three weeks in most individuals. For more information about poison ivy, click here.

Circa 1920 RV The RV industry has evolved tremendously over the last 100 years! This industry directly and indirectly supported an estimated 67,200 jobs and delivered $4.8 billion in added economic value to the Canadian economy in 2019. It is estimated that approximately 2.1 million Canadian households currently own an RV and this number has been increasing exponentially since Covid-19 began! With more than 4,300 campgrounds across Canada, additional investments in our camping and RV infrastructures is likely to improve the Canadian tourism industry. If you want to view pictures of RV's over the last 100 years, click here.
 
Parks Canada recently announced that they will double the number of its new oTentik unit at Parks Canada "oTENTik" camping structures in national parks and other locations across the country this year! An "oTENTik" structure is basically a crossbetween a tent and a cabin and is intended to add a degree of comfort to camping (see "Glamping" below). After rolling out a few dozen of the units in 2013, initially at La Mauricie National Park in Quebec, Parks Canada made 124 available across the country last year, mostly in national parks but also at a couple of national historic sites in B.C. This year the number of units will hit 238, said Francois Duclos, Parks Canada manager of visitor experience infrastructures and the rental cost ranges from $90-$120 a night for a unit that can accommodate six people.

Prices range from under $100 for a single night with a cot, to around $1000 for four nights with a queen bed!

Camping Cantley  (Cantley, QC)
My wife reserved at this campground and did not see (or think to look for) the fine print related to cancellation of a reservation. She went ahead and booked 2 sites for 3 nights (we were going to camp with a friend). Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, we had to cancel nearly a week before the camping date. Since I travel a lot, I am very familiar with hotel cancellation policies that require to cancel before 4pm the day of arrival to avoid fees. So, naturally, I thought that being nearly a week before arrival, I would not be penalized (except for the $6 non-refundable reservation f........ Charles  Ottawa    Ontario
