We were awakened yesterday by a lady knocking on our door to ask me if I thought it was safe to return to St. Augustine. She was alone in a travel trailer and eager to get back home but worried about traffic, wind, and what she might find when she got there. I told her […]

Yesterday was moving day for us, but it was a short trip of about 45 miles to the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve. We were up early and it didn’t take us all that long to get ready. We pulled out of Three Flags RV Resort about 9:25 and drove a couple of miles into Wildwood, […]

It’s always fun to meet our readers and make new friends, and we’ve been able to do that in every corner of this country. Not as often as we’d like sometimes, because there are only so many hours in a day and so many days in a week. But when we can make it happen, […]

We love you! Today is our last day at Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort and I don’t know where the […]

We were tired from our long trip Sunday, so we slept in yesterday, and when we got up I did a whole lot of nothing all day long. If I were on an Army base, somebody would have painted me. Seriously, the most strenuous thing I did all day long was take the trash down […]

As I reported in Tuesday’s blog, All American Direct, the company that has been providing distant network service (DNS) to Dish Network customers who want to get the east and west coast feeds, is going out of business and it looked like Dish was not going to do anything to help. As with most calls […]

As I wrote in my recent blog Bad News For Dish Customers, All American Direct, the company that provided distant network service (DNS) for Dish customers, is going out of business as of February 24. At that time customers will lose their east and west coast network feeds. They can still call Dish to request […]

If you are a fulltime RVer and a Dish Network customer, there are big changes coming and they aren’t good. All American Direct, the company that has been providing distant network service for Dish customers ever since the FCC banned them from doing so several years ago, is going out of business on February 25th […]

TV Good, Internet Bad

We were up bright and early yesterday morning because Dish Network was supposed to send a tech out to figure out why the reception on our bedroom TV was so fuzzy. We knew he would arrive sometime between 8 a.m. and noon, so we were up well before then to be ready for his arrival. […]
