January Potpourri...

Thursday, January 31, 2019

Yes, it's been a while since we blogged and figured it was time for an update. The first week of January, we changed RV parks. We have a nice, long, graveled site. No matter there aren't trees since the weather is cool here during the winter.

The park we are in now has a dog run and boy, do the #2doods ever love that! Take a peek...





In fact they have adjusted wonderfully to the RV lifestyle although we are still working on "ignoring" other dogs when out walking. LOL! Here are a few pics.

Ringing the bell and waiting to go out...


Freshly groomed...


Showing good walking manners...

We are still adjusting to cooking in the rig, sticking to our low carb WOE (way of eating). We forgot we have this Liddle Griddle. Now it gets used for bacon, sausage, and eggs as well as banana pancakes.


On my author blog, I posted about setting up our RV office using the dining room table. We have been using the campground WiFi but unless we changed sites to move closer to the router, we found we use our phone's hotspot more often than not. When I was in the laundry house, the WiFi was strong and fast, so we researched a solution. Over the years we have talked off and on about this but the only recommended solution was in the $500-600 range.

Well, things seem to have improved with newer technology and we ordered this Alfa WiFi Camp Pro 2 long range Wi-Fi repeater kit with free shipping from Rokland for $140. We figured it was worth a try. It arrived quickly and using a Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter for our MacBooks, Stu had it set up quickly. We wanted to see how well it worked before mounting the antenna outside.

Guess what? We ended up with fast speeds with the antenna inside, hanging from the lights over our dining table! Seriously! So that is where it sits and we are thrilled!!




Next up, our latest cruise...

Ciao for now!
