Back to the Posting Boards

Back online

Well I didn’t get my computer fixed (at least not completely).  I did pick it up and Charlie at My Internet in Yuma did replace the power plug on the computer’s mother board.  But after plugging in the AC adapter realized there is also a pin missing on it as well.  I can not leave it any longer for him to fix but will have to work on it later.

Picked up new computer

The big news is that I picked up my new computer from the FedEx store in Yuma.  They called this morning and I couldn’t wait to get down there.  This new computer is going to be a real learning curve for me.  I finally made the big switch from Windows to

My New Mac Book Pro

I opened the box in my rig at the FedEx Store and spent almost an hour playing with it and trying to figure out the difference between it and my old Windows PC.  In a nutshell – I LOVE IT!

Things do come a little slow but I am starting to figure it out.  Well enough on the subject of computers.

Getting hotter

The weather here is getting much warmer.  The highs are in the mid 80’s and not too cold at night.  The only bummer is that it has been quite windy.  I guess they don’t call my camp area Hurricane Ridge for nothing.

Andrea left this week to catch up with the WINS.  Ann and Jerry were staying down in Senator’s Wash but had to move after 14 days.  Now they too are up on Hurricane Ridge for 14 days and then will move on down to Senator’s Wash again.  They had the family over last week and had a wonderful time being entertained by their grand-kids.

Thursday is hike day

Every Thursday a large group gathers to go on a hike.  The first hike I participated in was to an arch.  It was about a 5 mile hike round-trip and the hiking wasn’t necessarily easy.  The hike was led by a guy that was 80 years old, but you sure couldn’t tell.  He walked at a very fast pace and kept everybody moving.  Up and down a lot of steep hills and over a lot of rocks.  It was a good workout for everyone.

Hiking to the Arch

We all made it to the arch after about a 2-2 1/2 mile hike.  The we all took a break and ate lunch.

Made it to the Arch

It was an absolutely beautiful day.

It was sure a great day and everyone enjoyed the hike.

I am glad to be able to get back online and posting again.  There is nothing worse then when you have computer problems.

  1. Glad you are back in computer land. I switched to a MacBook about 10 years ago and have never, ever regretted it. After my husband retired, he also switched. He worked in the pc world for over 30 years, with a degree in computing. Knew pc’s inside and out , software and hardware. After I got my Mac, he was amazed at how easy they were and jumped ship when he didn’t have to have the pc for work anymore. We now have to MacBooks, 2 iphones, and the ipad. This is why I have named our Class A, iHome!

  2. I knew you would love your Mac! It’s really hard not to love it. The weather here in Coolidge was a surprise after not having to use the heater very much in the morning (or not at all). In Coolidge it is in the 40s this morning and I’m definitely using the heater to take the chill off. In the day it’s been warm and not very windy. Highs have been 80s and high 70s. Looking forward to reading about your next adventures.

  3. Hi jimbo. I agree with you. Its really sad when a person has a problem with his PC. The world has changed so much in the last few yrs. When I was younger I would take off across the US with a wife(ex) and three babies and never look back and no I didn”t have a cell phone. Now when I leave the van if I forget my cell phone I turn around and go get it,lol GPS. What was that? Computer? My first was a Commodore 19…So much has changed. Enjoyed your blog as usual. Really nice pictures also. Sounds like your”re having a great time which is what its really all about…Your friend Joe

  4. I switched to a MacBook Pro last summer, and I’m really enjoying it. And, still learning new things about it. BTW you might want to change the title on your picture of the laptop. The photo shows a MacBook Pro, and you label it a Mac Pro which is Apple’s top of the line desktop computer.

  5. Congratulations on coming into the world of Apple. The switch will take a few weeks and then you’ll never look back. We love our Macs. Nobody says ‘I love my PC’. Glad you’re back to posting now.

  6. Hey there, glad you are back. Since you started out talking about computers, got a question for you. Are you using WordPress? and if yes can you tell me out to get the email subscription thing on my blog? Sadly I am still on a PC 😦 Take care in our journeys. www/tripswithtwo.com/blog.
