Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood . . .

Well, we’re on our second day of nice weather.  So something’s gone terribly wrong.

Once again after lunch I headed back over to the RV/MH Hall of Fame. By the time I left about 4:30 I had everything pretty much wrapped up. I’ll go back over Monday for a little while for a last checkout.

Getting back to the park about 4:45, we turned right about around and headed out with Nick and Terry to the Texas Roadhouse right down the road, where we met Al Hesselbart for dinner.

Texas Roadhouse gave us their usual great steaks and service, but it would be nice if the place weren’t quite so loud. It’s hard to have a conversation.

Leaving the restaurant we dropped Jan and Terry off at the rigs and then Nick and I drove back over to the Verizon store.

Nick had decided to get the Mi-Fi and I was going to get the Droid Charge. But, while Nick got his Mi-Fi, it turns out that they were out of stock on the Charge. Bummer!

But I called the Verizon store in Mishawaka and they have several in stock. That works out perfectly since we’re going over there tomorrow for some shopping.

I was really impressed by the speed of Nick’s 4G Mi-Fi. According to he was getting almost 15 Mbps, just about 10 times faster than the fastest 3G speeds.

Nice. Now if they would just hurry up and cover more of the country with 4G.

Be sure and tune in tomorrow for another installment of . . .

Things Every RV’er should have:


Thought for the Day;

On Oct. 9, 1903, the New York Times wrote:

"The flying machine which will really fly might be evolved by the combined and continuous efforts of mathematicians and mechanicians in from one million to ten million years."

On the same day, on Kill Devil Hill, N.C. in his diary, a bicycle mechanic named Orville Wright wrote:

"We unpacked rest of goods for the new flying machine."

  1. When the sales person suggests “insurance”, listen. After dropping phones for nearly a decade without an issue, I dropped my Charge for the first time – the display shattered. I had the silicone cover on it for a couple of weeks, but took it off because it didn’t quite fit with the extended battery. The accidental drop without the cover was a perfect corner impact with impressive breakage. I’ve since reworked the cover to fit around the bump in the back, but still waiting for a new display. (Hint – a 3rd party extended battery does make a difference… or leave it plugged in. )

    However we bought our handsets at Costco at $130 / handset and they gave us free car chargers and screen protectors. Not sure that promotion is still valid.

  2. Thanks for the info.

    Good to know about the larger battery.
