Rather them than me! The comments on the Forum make very interesting reading & as someone suggested, it will make a good blog. Can't wait to read it.

There was a link in the rv.net thread to insp1505's arctic preparations. Most won't be able to see the link because rv.net is blocked to those outside the US. Here is the same thread via a different portal:

PS - worth picking up the points Silversand raises. He (Derek) is a friend of mine who lives on a mountain outside Montreal where it is -20c and lower for a good chunk of the year. He is also a weather specialist. You may recall we did a camping tour of New England with him last year. He has a lot of specialist knowledge about rain forest survival and gets employed as a consultant for such - not that that really helps Chris much :mrgreen:

I've finally had time to catch up with this - it makes a really interesting read, especially all the US 'you're going to die' answers.

There's a lot of food for thought, and I'll have a good think about some of the suggestions. I seem to be running out of time and too many jobs still to do. And still no truck. Tis all getting a bit fraught :lol:
