Connectivity Woes

Folks, if there is a primary challenge that we face as full-time RVers, it’s connectivity woes! I traveled 16 miles from the campground to find a Starbucks. Despite our having Verizon Hotspot the cell service wasn’t strong enough to use it at the campground.

Then, I was contentedly editing photos at Starbucks using my PicMonkey editor when its site quit working. I thought, “Aha! I will just write a blog post instead of editing photos!”

Then…BINGO!  My HP laptop froze up. So, here’s a photo of the blank screen.

Connectivity Woes…Blank Screen

I will just use my Google pixel phone to create this blog post, one character entered via my thumb tio at a time. (Whiner!)

Yuppers! It’s amazing what we take for granted. In our former “stick and bricks” homes, having access to the internet and a strong cell signal spoiled us rotten.

Perhaps the Speed of Sanity to which we aspire is being reinforced through lessons such as today.

From Beautiful Tennessee, Happy Trails and Connectivity to Ya’all!

  1. So you are in Tennessee. Nice time to be there. Leslie went to Vanderbilt and taught in the area so we had many good times there.
    Are you coming east?

    1. Hello Jean. I forgot that Leslie went to school at Vanderbilt University. It’s a fantastic school. I hope that you are all doing well.


  2. Hang in there Darlin! You can handle it. You grew up in the era of no internet. 🙂 . We love to hear from you whenever it’s possible.
    Best to you and Steve!

    1. Hahaha! Thanks, Donna. Yep, how quickly I assimilated to the fast lane of the World Wide Web and Smarty-pants Phone from the rural Iowa party (gossip) phone lines if childhood. 🤗
