Blue Ridge Parkway

Today is Friday and the Weekend Warriors are coming into the campground one after another for their weekend camping adventure.  Hubby said this morning “All of these Weekend Warriors are excited to come camping this weekend.  We get to camp every day”.  We do get to camp every day and sometimes I take it for granted. I hope these Weekend Warriors are lucky enough that when they retire, they can camp every day.

It’s supposed to rain all day on Sunday. When you get to camp every day, it is okay if it rains.  Rain days give us full-time RV travelers a chance to relax.  A rainy weekend can ruin a Weekend Warrior’s outing. For us, a rainy day will be our chance to sit around and do nothing. I guess we don’t need a rainy day for that. The other day, at Walmart, I bought a board game. I bought Scrabble for a rainy day. Hubby thinks he will beat me at Scrabble. GAME ON HUBBY!

Today, we drove some of the Blue Ridge Parkway. We’ve ridden the parkway many times in the past on our motorcycle. I will never get tired of this drive. The speed limit is 45 mph. Going 45 mph gives you time to safely gawk at the beautiful scenery.

Some trees were full of color today.

The pups enjoyed their ride today. We had to put the child lock on the truck today. BooBoo put the window down. Don’t worry, he is tethered in.

BooBoo and Benji stay awake most of the ride. Bella is sound asleep in her bed on the floor.

By the time we got back to our campground, almost every site was taken. Campers were cooking over campfires. Kids were riding bikes. The campground was bustling with all kinds of campers. Weekend Warriors, full-timers and Seasonal Campers were all enjoying this start to a beautiful weekend. It’s a nice evening. Sweatshirt weather. I took my daily walk around the park enjoying looking at all of the different kinds of campers. Everything from pop-up campers to large Class A motorhomes.

One of my neighbors asked what I use for my Internet access.

TOGO Roadlink partnered with AT&T is my best internet. Unfortunately, AT&T eliminated the plan I currently have. I am grandfathered in until the end of January. The plan I have is $35 a month for truly unlimited unthrottled internet.

The hardware in the picture below is supposed to be mounted on the roof of the RV. I didn’t want to put holes in the roof of my rig so I just usually set it out on the floor of our deck. If we don’t have our deck open, it just sits in the garage area of our Toy Hauler. Even from inside our coach, I can stream TV and do anything I need to do using TOGO.

I also have OTR Mobile using the NightHawk router. The plan is on AT&T and I pay $70 a month. It is supposed to be unlimited, unthrottled, but I think they throttle it after so many Gigs.

I also have a jetpack through Verizon. That is where I have my cell service through. Since Verizon throttles broadband after 15 gigs, I have the WeBoost Drive X RV. This booster does work.

In the campground I’m in now, I am just using my TOGO. It works great and it is all I need. In January when I lose my TOGO access I will probably go with NoMad Internet –

God Bless, Stay Safe, and Be Kind to Every Kind.
