    Just an observation and no insult intended to any Canadian members of the forum, but the Canadian Highway Department needs to learn about this new stuff they are using to pave highways in the rest of the world. It's called asphalt. Not tar and gravel, or just plain gravel. That's old school. They should really try this new fangled asphalt stuff.

    As a sidebar, I now have two new rock chips in my windshield, courtesy of passing drivers and flying Canadian gravel.

    I'd go another way if there was one. Unfortunately, the motorhome won't float up the Inside Passage.;):D

    If you had the amount of hyway to work in the US with the tax base of Canada you would have mud hyways here. Really chip seal(what you are refer to) is a good way to keep up roads. Does the job with a smooth finish and good wear. AH as to wind screen I had to have both halves replaced when we got back.

    Got two more rock chips today.

    Len, I'm talking asphalt - hot, black gooey stuff, dumped out of a truck, spread by a machine and rolled flat with a big roller. No loose stones until it starts to break up. Something else the Canadian Highway Department could use is a bull dozer and a straight edge. Push this hill here into that hole there and run the road in a straight line.

    Bob, I don't think I would trust my motorhome on anything that close to the water. That thing looks scary. I saw a guy today with the right idea. Had his RV and pickup on a flatbed trailer behind his semi truck.:D:D
