  1. We used to do 6-8 months in our Sprinters. The thing with a B is, you live more outside, & travel more. Now if you get stuck, as we once did in Homer, waiting in the rain for 10 days on your mail....better REALLY like each other. Now we travel in a Travato only for 2-3 months before we have medical appointments.
  2. Info here. https://www.fnblivingston.com/personal-other-services.htm#shred
  3. I’m posting this info here for any who need medical in Livingston, or travelers who may want access to a medical facility. This will be another use it or loose it benefit I’m sure. Cross Posted from the Escapees park email. "Medical Clinic at CARE - Monday and Thursday mornings Dr. Sandra Hutchison operates a clinic here at Rainbow's End at Pearl's Cottage which is near CARE. Mondays and Thursdays 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Lindsay Mabe, Nurse Practitioner. Call for an appointment (936) 328-5612 Open to all Escapees and the public. "
  4. I’m on day 3 of my 14da free trial and I’m pleasantly surprised. I have a Mobley account so the data use isn’t a lot of concern but I try to minimize it. I use a Roku stick in my TV as a receiving unit, with video quality set to 720 to minimize use, data consumption is still ~.5 gb hr.. The system, at that resolution seems to work fine down to 5MPS. For $50 I get unlimited DVR & local channels, in addition to a lot of other "stuff". The locals can be set manually, or automatically using your internet location. We (I) got tired of moving sat equipment, then dinking around with CS to get the locals changed. I’ve gotta say that, so far, I’m impressed with the product. Just a user, no ties to the company, other than Google, who know everything anyway.
  5. OK, what does OTG mean, other than On The Go?
  6. After living in Scandinavia and China I've seen a couple of "solutions" & I don’t believe we would find either acceptable. Learn to say " No money, go away" in what ever language works.
  7. Not a problem today, but a cold front just passed. That usually brings a flock of Snow Birds until they get frozen to their northern roosting place.
  8. I’m going to post an excerpt just received in the Rainbows End park email. Hopefully it’s OK either everyone. " CARE - Reopening Clinic and Meals on Wheels Dr Sandra Hutchison confirmed she will be at the Activity Center Social, this coming Sunday 11/24 to discuss opening an office in Pearl’s cottage 1/1/2020. (Come at 6:00 p.m. for ice cream social, discussion will follow. David Horton) Initially, the office will be open two days each week with Nurse Practitioner Lindsey. NP Lindsey offered to make house calls, if she does not have patients in the office at the time of request. We are encouraging the Doctor to also bring in specialists, if possible. This service will be for all of Rainbows End (deeded and transient RV’ers). If you want a close, convenient health resource (that you could walk to) come to this Sunday’s Social to ask questions. For folks that travel and domicile in Texas, needing annual checkups, this is the ultimate convenience. The CHI clinic, in Pearls, left due to lack of participation of Escapees. Escapee CARE Inc. has no connection with Dr. Hutchinson other than to offer the use of the cottage as an office. If you want a convenient Health Resource, Use it or Lose it! Also beginning 1/15/2020, Escapees CARE, Inc. will offer Rainbows End folks “Meals on Wheels”. Our goal initially will be to deliver lunch to folks in the campground, Monday to Friday, for $9.00 each (or $16.00 for 2 at same address), If there is sufficient need expressed. Initial details include prepayment of 10 meals to get on the delivery list and at least 10 folks (10 stops) signed up by December 15! Normal lunches are $ 6.00, plus $1.00 for special take out containers and $ 2.00 to the person delivering. Week-ends could be added if there are sufficient volunteers to drive. Get your questions answered at Sunday’s Social. Russ Johnson carefd@escapees.com "
  9. Wondering what limits the draw on a circuit used as charge for a toad ? Thinking about wiring into the taillight circuit but don’t know what the draw will be on the circuit.
  10. Looks like once again that the vocal minority has ruled over the silent majority. The much needed (&wanted) cell tower at CARE won’t be constructed on CARE property. This decision, in my opinion, was driven by hysteria & ignorance.
  11. I believe (hope) that they would know if the signal inside of a vehicle, car, truck, or van, made of steel (many are you know) would be USABLE, or not.
  12. The only thing that has held me back is I have a B with a steel roof and don’t know if the signal will penetrate the roof. I’d have had one long ago otherwise. Wineguard says yes the signal will be degraded, but can’t/won’t say if it will be unusable or not.
  13. I’d like to know more about the BB failures Alloy, can you provide any info ?
