RE: Mission Texas Weather

When we were there in 2004 It was almost impossible to go for a bike ride. The awning was never used. The car dealer down the road had a flag half the size of a basketball court and it was out flapping as stiff as a sheet of plywood. Once was enough.

RE: Question regarding residential refrigerators

We have the Honda 2000 at the cottage in case of power outage. It keeps a full size fridge going no problem as well as the Satellite & TV and floor lamp.

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

The following explains a lot. You be you and I'll be me. Introverts sometimes avoid large groups of people, feeling more energized by time alone. Extroverts, people who finds energy in interactions with others

RE: Oil headed for 70 bucks s barrel. Here we go.

Give it time. We went from gliders to the space program in 60 years. No difference here.

RE: Any new options for casting from a mobile device to a TV?

Howdy! I used a Apple Lighting-to-HDMI adapter to mirror from my iPhone or IPad before going to Apple TV. Yes it mirrored everything when connected. Not quite. Once in while I get a message saying HDMI cannot be streamed. They do have ways of blocking some programs

RE: Is Socializing a Dying Thing in the RV Community?

In our experiences "Social People" are talkers, not listeners. You can't get a word in and they don't understand peace and quiet. yak, yak, yak.

RE: Wi-Fi extenders

Try having it higher with a cable extension. Sometimes that's all you need to clear all the clutter around you.

RE: I must be getting olde !

I gave a teenager a ride in my pickup. He loved the idea of turning a crank to open the window. Was not real sure about sticking a key in a hole to unlock the door. Good old days when things were simple and worked. I lost my car keys and had to pay 290$ for a new fob. Can't start the car without it.

RE: Beware Gift Card Scam

From what I found out all these cards are backed by MasterCard. The scam comes from the card manufacturer. These are the same cards you find everywhere. MC has an ongoing investigation going on. ONCE MORE. Your best defense is to have the cashier scan the card to make sure it's legit. My card was a genuine Apple card that activated a Best Buy card somewhere else.

RE: Beware Gift Card Scam

My wife bought the card at the local drug store. It was sealed in the package like all other card. The cashier said they were familiar with the scam but it was sporadic, not all card were affected.

Beware Gift Card Scam

I don't really understand how it works but we were scammed. I received an Apple gift card for Christmas. When I tried to use it I got the message that it had not been properly activated. I went to the drug store and found out that when it was activated at the register it actually activated a card for Best Buy. The lady at the cash showed me when she scanned my Apple card it came up as Best Buy. When she scanned another it showed Apple. So now it's in the hands of the fraud squad etc. I doubt we will ever see any money from this. SO... When you buy a card have it scanned first to see if that's what you're buying. Apparently this a scam perpetrated way up the chain where the cards are printed. BEWARE P.S. NO, the card can not be used at Best Buy.

RE: Tablet Battery Charging

To repeat what I posed two days ago. I speak from personal experience. Don't leave it charging 24/7 I ruined one that way. I used it as a hotspot all summer at the cottage. As it was explained to me. The phone will stop charging at 100% but it always sips away using background app like wifi, blue tooth etc. The battery drops to 99% so it charges up again. If it does that for hours on end it will heat up and deteriorate. Mine swelled up so much it popped off the back cover.

RE: Tablet Battery Charging

A fast charger won't harm it, just don't keep it charging 24/7. A general rule is to keep it between 30-80% for longer battery life.

RE: Fulltime family of 4: 2019 year in review

Are the kids happy? What do kids say to their friends, not to you,...their friends? As a trade, is shooting photos around Disney a worthwhile occupation? HUH?

RE: Wi-Fi extenders

An extender doesn't give you a stronger signal it simply extends the signal it receives. If you put it at the far end of the router signal you get nothing. If you put it where the signal is 50% it will extend that out beyond the router's range. Or sumtin like that

RE: No Warranty on your RV? Don't buy new?

Basically... You are towing a box down a bumpy road. Something will go wrong, an inconvenience for you can be a major catastrophe for others. There is no right or wrong Sh*t happens!

RE: cabin fever !

A month ago we had a deep, deep freeze -26C windchill. That really threw a scare in everybody. This past week it's been mild and now it's raining. No matter the weather you have to get our and embrace it.
