Craig. Sounds like an awesome trip you have planned! Like Hal, our goal is Tuk , but that was our goal last year too. And it's looking like its not happening again this year. Our camper has been sitting in our garage since Aug 2019 when we got back from our Nfld/Lab trip.

Hi, maybe the question is off-topic, but I bought a Mojave map, it would be nice to have a paper map. So where is Afton Canyon? Of course it is NOT on my map. read about it saw pictures of it.

There now seems to be some movement on opening the US/Canada border with both governments in discussion about what goals need to be met in order for reopening to proceed.

 

Good news all around.

Afton canyon is here:

But there aremuch more interesting areas in the Mohave. Afton canyon was our first foray into the Mohave and our response was "what's the big deal". A few years later, we tried other spots and have been going back for the past 20 odd years. If you don't have a CA Benchmark map, get one.

Does access to Afton Canyon depend on the Canadian Border opening?    :wacko:  

 

Never mind I know where it is, having been there.  :P 



Back on topic there is some indication that Canada may decide to open its border to vacinated travellers.  

"...Canadian Governmnet considering easing border restrictions after 75% of Canadians had at least one shot and 20% were fully vaccinated – a milestone that the government expects to reach by June 21.

 

https://www.usatoday...-22/7611474002/

However,  there is rising concern in the US (and elsewhere) about the Covid variant from India that is now spreading rapidly in the UK.  What will it take to get people to wear masks in public and get vaccinated so this virus will die down because it doesn't have enough new hosts to mutate in rather that spreading in a new wave and causing causing more deaths?

I am not holding my breath, yet.  I DO hope we can visit Utah this fall, but right now inter-provincial (cross-state) travel is still restricted, and in some provinces, travel inside the province is restricted too.  Vaccinations % is catching up to the USA, and we need to agree on some kind of vaccine passport/protocol (and the effect of variants/infection rates) before travel can be predictably allowed.  I for one can't afford to quarantine when I cross a border, and won't until our respective Border Agencies/Health Dept's and politicians figure this out.

It's slow in coming but with a lot of countries getting high vax %s

I look for travel to loosen up soon.

My daughter in Barcelona will get her shot next week.

Higher vax rates are starting to be the norm.
