Back in the saddle again
I just today realized how nice it is to have great Internet. I finished up my workamping contract with Hoodoo on Friday and hit the road on Saturday where I spent the first night in Ellensburg, WA. Then I drove to Redmond, OR the next day where I stayed in Crooked River Ranch at the River Rim RV Park. I have stayed here many times so know the area and besides it is a Passport America park so saved some money to boot.
Tuesday morning my destination is Alturus, CA and finally arriving in Reno, NV on Wednesday. I have checkups with my doctors in the area so will probably even get down to Fernley, NV. I may even get to see some of my friends who worked at Amazon in the previous years. Of course I have already decided to NOT work at Amazon this year. I don’t want to go through another winter like last year.
Life without GOOD Internet
Since I arrived at Panorama Point on Baker Lake back in May I realized that Internet or cell phone usage can be very frustrating. I was able to access the Internet using my Wilson Sleek booster, but I was only able to get a poor 3G signal. I could not upload or download any pics and reading other blogs was out of the question let alone post my own. Besides I was working, which took up a great deal of my time.
The worst part was when it rained. Then I had absolutely no Internet even with my booster. Yes, it does rain quite a bit in the Northwest. I had no cell phone usage either unless I utilized my booster. Sometimes in certain areas I could receive a 1 bar signal which at times would be enough to receive a text message, but not enough to make a phone call. So communication was very poor. At least I had a booster unlike the other hosts, who had to drive 10 miles just to make a phone call.
More to follow
I have many pics of my summer I would like to share once I stop traveling and can put together a post. I just wanted my readers to know that I am fine and enjoying not working at this time. I am not sure where I am headed after Reno, but will figure that out soon enough.
