    I got 9 also, but am only able to claim 8 because number 10 was a trick question………………because the West Edmonton Mall just opened recently. U Connucks are all alike!

    Art, The West Edmonton Mall has been open for many years, and has always been the biggest mall in North America. I know as I’ve been there some 5 years ago. But, never the less, you did very well. All you guys are pretty bright. Thanks for the challenge and your input.

    Oops….only 5 right! I thought that #1 was a trick question, since the crocs aren’t really supposed to be there….
    Didn’t know enough about Canada, so that tossed out 3 answers there, and have never been to Montana, so that was a guess….
    I don’t feel to bad, and it gives me some places to put in the “Bucket List”.

    Thanks for a fun quiz!!

    santa skip, To get the other 9 is great work. I didn’t think this was a push over, but it seems we got smart people reading the RV.NET blog. Good going and thanks for sharing your score with us.

    50-50 which just proves my contention that we need to retire and do a lot more RVing!

    BARRY ENGLEMAN, I like your way of thinking. A bad day RVing still beats a good day at work. Thanks for your input.

    Got 7 right , am Canadian and missed some of the US question but I have been to South Florida a couple of times…. Western Canada is truly spectacular and the best way to do it is by RV .

  12. Avatar

    John Jackman, You are right about western Canada. The scenery is pretty hard to beat. I’m also a Canadian and just returned the week before last from Vancouver to Ontario via Jasper. I’ve done it a number of times and it just never gets old. Thanks for your input and score.

    Got all ten correct and have been to 7 of them. Have not made it to Calvery stampede or Dollywood. Actually all were on my Gold Wing Motorcycle. Now we full time RV so we can slow down and really enjoy each one.

  14. Avatar

    Pam, If you have been to 7 of them, you are a ringer at this. Good going on getting all correct. Yes, on a bike you would really see them, but an RV is far more comfortable. Thanks for posting your great score and for your input.

    I got five right and five wrong.
    Missed every single one of those Canadian -related questions and obviously a couple of others! LOL
    It was fun though and I learned some things. Thanks 😀

    Tulirose, I don’t know how bad 50% really is here. It well could be average, though it seems those that scored high are the major group that is sharing their score. Glad you enjoyed it. Thanks for posting your score and for your comments.

    Good Morning, what a great idea to get the noggin workin !!
    I got eight right.
    The two I missed:
    the first one was #1, which I thought was a trick question. My dad (God rest his soul) told us kids MANY years ago that there were NO crocodiles in No. America
    ((( and, we all know dad could not be wrong )))
    #10, what the heck ??? Are you sure ???? just kidding !! I always thought the good ole USA had the biggest and best Mall ~~ and, I LOVE to shop 🙂
    Thanks for the wake-up call. Hubby and I have not yet been to Canada so now I (whoops, I mean WE) have ANOTHER reason to visit there.
    Thanks for this quiz…

    Judy, Eight is not too shabby. I think the crocodile question fooled many. Good going with 8 right, I’m glad you enjoyed the quiz. Thank you for your participation and for posting your very good score.

    I got 9 correct. We’ve visited some, researched others for trips, and now plan on visiting others. The one I missed was #1; I, too, was taught that there are no crocs, except the shoes, in North America.

    Suzanne Griffin, The Croc question got many. Nine right! That’s a great score. I can not believe how many people did so well. They are either pretty smart or good liars. Thanks for posting your score and for your input.

    Hi Lug_Nut,
    Got all ten right. Took a guess on # 2 & 6 though. I drove the Road to the Sun Hwy years ago on the Harley, they had just opened the road and was still a lot of snow banks that were melting fast with the heat. Sure is beautiful in that area. Going to be doing a lot more camping in that part of MT., ID.,BC., and WA. People are great too. Well worth the effort!
    Cheers,
    John

    Hey John, Your the man! 10 right, alright. Good going. A Harley would sure be better than a motor home on the Going To The Sun Road. Sounds like you have been there a time or two. Thanks for sharing your top score with us and for your great regular input.

    I got 7 out of 10. I thought should have been (C). It would be near impossible to find a Crocodile in Florida.

  24. Avatar

    Don, 7 out of 10 is not a bad score. Yes, spotting a croc in south Florida may be difficult, but, they are there. Thanks for posting your score and for your input.

    Got all 10 correct – but we have been full-timing for 7 years. Can’t believe all we have done. This certainly points it out!.
