Looking for a Cool Arizona Campground for Summer

16 December 2014 - 09:58 PM

We went through our first AZ Summer last year. Zow! It was hot.

 

This year we're looking for some place cool to camp in our Class A for part of the Summer.

 

Any recommendations?


Did Verizon Increase Its Data Rates?

25 November 2014 - 11:27 PM

I signed up for the 40 GB @ $150 data plan in October, but I was thinking of rolling back my plan to 20 GB (and then increase it 40 GB later).

 

However, when I looked at Verizon's More Everything's data rate online "slider", 20 GB is now priced at $150 and 40 GB at $300!

 

So, methinks the bargain rates went away.


DISH Anywhere & Sling

20 November 2014 - 09:10 PM

Just finished figuring out how DISH Anywhere works, and though I like to thank DISH, some of the info I originally got from their techs was bogus.
 
Anyway, like DirecTV Everywhere, DISH Anywhere is a pretty cool technology if you have a Hopper with Sling or if you use the new Slingbox M1.


MBR95 Data Usage Question

17 November 2014 - 02:21 PM

In our park model, I use a Verizon USB data stick in my MBR95. However, I also have a Apple AirPort Extreme WiFi router which is plugged into a wired broadband connection (microwave radio). So I have two WiFi networks.

 

When I pull up my MBR95's data usage screen, the legend shows LAN IN / LAN out and WAN IN / WAN OUT. ("Local Area Network" and "Wide Area Network"?)

 

Is the LAN my MBR95 and the WAN my Airport Extreme?


Internet Satellite Network in the Works?

SpaceX's Elon Musk (or Steve Jobs version 2.0) planning 700-strong satellite network. With possible DISH involvement?
