WIFI sucks.

Hi, well this is a really nice camp ground, but the WIFI sucks. Then I remembered the last time that I was here [Premier RV Park in Salem, Oregon] and spent the night in the laundry room; Well guess where I am now. We had a wonderful time at "Camp smartstream" an hated to leave, but we have a few other things that we need to do. Our hosts were great and we couldn't thank them enough for all that they did for us. They had WIFI too but we just had too much fun, leaving no time for things like TV's and lap tops. Hagar and Boo-Boo were quite the pair.

Hi, wish you [and Cindy] could have been there when we showed up; But then again, we got the same full hook-up site that you had.

Bob,
This is probably been covered before. However with nearly 1000 posts in this thread, I think you will forgive me for asking instead of searching. What are you taking all your pictures with?

Ken

Hi, Ken; I'm using a Sony Cybershot DSC-HX30V digital camera. It has 18.2 Mega Pixels, and a 20X optical zoom.

Bob,

Every time my laptop or iPad goes to sleep, when I waken it the system looks for the strongest signal. At one house where I still have a wireless provider, the computer selects it instead of Verizon.

There are ways to solve this. One is to change it manually every time. Or, put the Verizon magic box next to the device antenna. If you need a password for the Tengo system, don't enter it, and if you have, go into the preferences and delete it. The third is illegal and has to do with CG antennas and wire cutters. I do not recommend that one.

Gene

Hi, Gail; we are right up the street from you, at Premier RV Resort, on HWY 22. Today we picked some more, FREE, wild berries. Of course Lee Lee picked much more than I did.

Hi, Gail; As you can see in the pictures, only one out of the cluster of berries is the ripe one. This is a really nice camp ground, we've been here before, but like the rest, WIFI is iffy.

Hi, today we had fun picking more free wild berries; We had some of them in our Black Cherry ice cream tonight. It was soooo good. Boo-Boo just relaxed today. He lets us know [with body language] whether he wants to go out with us or not.

Is there really a woman in there?

Hi, well I'm not sure exactly what happened, but we really pissed off Georgette. [my GPS] We were just driving around the country side and in and out of different housing areas. There was some construction going on and the road was closed. We drove up the road anyway until it looked like we were going to get into trouble for doing it. To get to our destination, we went around the other end of the construction area. There we had to go down tore up roads, in an unusual way to get to see this place. At that time we turned around to head on out. Because of the odd detours and streets that were not well known by Georgette, we didn't [couldn't] go the way she told us to. As I was going down this dirt and gravel road, Georgette went berserk. She started yelling at me, in a very fast, non-stop commanding voice. "turn left here, turn left now, recalculating, turn left in 50 feet, turn left on Jones street, recalculating, make a "U" turn at next intersection", and on and on and on. Actually I don't remember what she said, but she made about twenty five commands in less than one minute. Finally, my wife reached over and turned Georgette off. Whew!!!!!!! We really pissed her off this time. Because of her actions, we believe that there really is a woman inside of my GPS. We promised to never get Georgette pissed off again.

I think you only have a few options in order not to piss her off. Either blindly follow all of her commands as she seems to be the dominate type, or don't turn her on at all.

We just purchased a new GPS (Garmin) which left me less than impressed on our last trip. Here are a couple of the major stupid things she did.

1. She took us off of a freeway and had us drive several miles through city traffic. We found out later if we had stayed on the freeway for those several miles, would could have exited a few miles from our destination with only two stop lights to deal with.

We were at Cheyenne Mountain State Park in Colorado springs. Every time we left the park, she tried to route us via a gated emergency only state park road to join the restricted official business only road that serves only the NORAD command center inside the mountain.

It is obvious that when we deviate from her assigned routing, she makes no attempt to find the best route from that point to the destination. She simply seeks the fastest way back to her previously assigned routing. If you fail to comply and happen to be paralleling her route, she will order you to turn at every Podunk residential or narrow road along the way, so she can go back to sleep sooner. I have proven this by stopping her when we are off route and then restarting her from that point to the destination.

On the way home, we left her assigned route on a diverging highway to go around Denver to the west, rather than take I-25 though the city. For at about 20 minutes or more (well past the point where it was much quicker to take the route we had chosen), she tried to get us to take every other road back to the east through all the west Denver suburbs to rejoin I-25.

Ken
