Came across this awesome article at the Camping Tourist and thought I’d share it with my readers:
Are you looking for the best camping destination in Canada? The best way to know Canada is through its national parks. Look at the below ten national parks and know about each region whether it suitable for your needs or not.

It is one of the Canadaâ€™s top tourist destinations. Once you enter into this park, you will be enclosed by glaciers, mountain lakes, mountains, and rushing rivers. Within Banff, you will find Tunnel Mountain campgrounds and this park have special regions for tents and RVs.

I got this email from a Rogers communications specialist and thought I’d post it on here since it may be useful if you’re currently a Rogers digital cable customer. I should have probably posted this email a few days ago to let you guys know about the NCAA but unfortunately I just read this email today.
I have some info on something that’s “free” in a sense – Rogers digital cable customers are able to get free stuff through Rogers On Demand, which is on Channel 100, and a lot of customers don’t even know that this channel is available to them FOR FREE with their digital cable – it has everything from free karaoke to free sports matches and all can be rewound, fastforwarded, paused, etc. Our latest free thing on Channel 100 are full commercial-free NCAA March Madness games – we have all 63 of them along with highlights. This is especially good because during the first and second rounds of the tournament, many of the games are happening at the same time. Networks like CBS can’t run all the games at the same time so they bounce around from showing, say, 3 mins of one game and then a few of another one happening at the same time. With On Demand on Channel 100 viewers can watch the full games so they don’t miss any of the action.
Just came across a great PayPal coupon code for eBay and I thought I should share up. After purchasing an item, ebay’ll ask you at the checkout if you have any coupon codes. Just enter CTHANKS50 and it should subtract $50 from the pre-shipping cost of the order!
That being said there are a few known issues with this coupon that you may have to iron out if you want to use it. If it tells you that it’s not valid with this PayPal account, you can call Paypal and let them know the coupon isn’t working for you. They’ll fix it lickety-split. The other option is to go and pay for the order directly from your Paypal — it should work from their if it didn’t in the eBay checkout.
Is it a coupon you have to work for? Sure. But is it worth it? Absolutely.
UPDATE: We’re gonna have to mark this one “use at your own risk.” A few of our readers have tried this, called Paypal, and had no problem. However reader Bobby Carter called and was told that because he wasn’t personally sent the coupon there was nothing they could do for him.
UPDATE #2:Â I think we’ve had enough complaints in the thread to suggest that this is probably only going to work for a select few lucky folks.Â If you’re planning on buying something on eBay before the end of the month, give it a shot.Â Otherwise, consider this too risky to try.
