Glad you came and even happier that you enjoyed yourselves.  Nancy & I enjoyed your company as well.  And that of all the others too.

Gary & Nancy

It was a pleasure to see you again as well as all of the other attendees. Judy and I really enjoyed the rally, especially Nancy's stories Saturday night. We are really glad we decided to stay the extra two days. The trip back to the house in Melbourne was uneventful. Thanks for a good time. ;D

Glad you stayed, Wayne & Judy.  The Saturday night campfire sure had some memorable stories!

 Sunday was quiet and the remaining three couples (Dicks, Baginski's and us) went to Longhorn for dinner. Food was great and the service somewhat short of the food, but that seems to be the standard in Tifton.  8)

We too had an uneventful trip home on Monday. Now we are engaged in opening up the house after a nearly 7 month absence. No big deals, but will keep us busy for a couple days.

It was great to see everyone at the SE rally. Gary and Nancy did it again! The ladies had their red hat day and the men went out to eat and then some of us toured the Georgia Agrarama. It was a great afternoon. Learned some new stuff about the agriculture in GA back in the "good old days".

We arrived at TGO around 3:30 Monday afternoon. Now we need to settle in for the winter. Looks like it'll be just shy of 5 months before we're on the road again. I'll be trying to catch up on the forum since I was unable to get online for a week!!

You need to get at least one of the Southeast group to get a satellite hookup ;D ;D

I'm willing to provide a place to mount the dish if you'll pay for the service.  ;D

Actually, the campground had wi-fi but it for $18/week thru the Coach-Connect service. I subscribed and loaned out my password to others to use when I wasn't online, but Jim's laptop connected at an extremely slow rate for some reason.  Literally so slow as to be unusable online. I got excellent performance and  Ray Baginski had no complaints either.  Another of Bill Gate's mysteries, I guess.

Gary,

It sure is a mystery. I'm now on a 50K land line and the speed is blinding compared to the WIFI! I may have to invest in a Directway someday if I lose the Verizon high speed. Found out the WIFI here at TGO is $5.95/day or $35/month. They also have weekly and yearly rates. Again I can't get a good signal. Think I'll stick with the land line.

BTW, all the "doctors" in our group were correct...I've got Shingles. :) It is better and the rash should be gone in a week but the pain might stick around up to 5 months. Fortunately it's not that bad. Can't do anything with the shoulder until the Shingles is gone. :(

Sorry to hear about the shingles. I've heard that can be quite painful.

Jim,

Sorry to hear of the shingles.  Pat had them earlier in the year and was miserable.  Good luck on getting them under control and hopefully the pain will go soon too.

Tom, Jim, and Ron,

Thanks. It's not really too bad, thankfully. It's more irritating than painful. Doc said it is usually caused by stress and it's a result of having Chicken Pox. Should be better soon. The shoulder is the worst. Xray didn't show anything but a small bone spur near the bottom. He said that really shouldn't be causing any problems yet. They'll do an MRI after the Shingles is cleared up and see what that shows. Could mean anything from physical therapy to an operation. I doubt an operation is really needed. I've had it for several years but it's been a lot worse in the past couple of months. I'm thinking it might be due to the fact I didn't work as much so the arm wasn't exercised the way it usually is. ;D

Maybe you need to join curves to get that needed exercise. ;D

Ron,

Yes, it is. I wonder if I could file a lawsuit and force them to let me join? ;D Better yet, get a monetary award so I can pay off the coach!! ;D ;D Of course I haven't tried to join. Be my luck they'd say fine!

Jim,

I knew there was a downside to getting older, but then the alternative just ain't so attractive. BG

I hope you are feeling better.

Sheila and I are off to Chicago (via plane) for the weekend. With my luck it will snow!

When I was in Cape May I had the Coach Net WIFI, it was a metered bandwidth. It would work for browsing the internet it would fail using Microsoft Money to retreive daily stock quotes for investments, I had  to connect to Verizon and download quotes that way. Called the tech at Coach Net, of course they said everything was working fine. Well if everything is working fine how come I gotta go to my telephone to get the quotes to work?

Not having used CoachNet, a couple of things could cause that problem.  They may be blocking all but selected ports (HTTP, POP3, SMTP) and Money may be using one or more of the blocked ports for it's secure connections.  CoachNet may be using a proxy server that Money won't work through.

Well, our quick side trip to Florida to visit Family is over and we are home safe and sound. Only trouble we ran into was a satellite reciever that jumped out of the overhead compartment and landed on Jo's foot while we were underway. Of course yours truly was supposed to move it prior to travelling ::), but I got sidetracked(DOH!) Fortunatly her well padded sneaker took the brunt of the attack and she is only brused and a bit sore. If I wasn't out of reach at the time, I probably would be a bit bruised and sore as well ;D

We would like to thank Gary and Nancy for heading up the festiviities and everyone else for making is such a good time. It was great meeting new folks and solving the worlds' problems with old friends. The trip to the Agrirama was very informative, and makes me happy I was born in this timeframe and not earlier ;D. Jim, glad to hear you got your diagnosis confirmed and are under treatment (and that it's mostly an inconvenience). I sure wish I was as organized in traveling as Len and Jo, but I'm too cheap to print full color maps ;)

Unloaded the motorhome in record heat (high 80's) and today it won't make it out of the 60's......guess we should have stayed a day longer.

Hi Ken & Sheila,

I'll take the growing old before the other but I'm not there yet. ;D The rash is much better, thanks. Shoulder will be addressed starting Saturday with an MRI. Perhaps it just needs more exercise to lubricate the joints.

Don't freeze in Chicago!!!!

Hi Dave,

Sure glad you were out of reach of Joanne!!!! ;D Glad you made it back safely. We're tied up at TGO where it's in the high 70's. Sure is nice to be home for a while. It was great to see both of you again. Will be looking at your N-gauge site shortly.

Ouch! Hope Jo is OK. When we first got our coach I went around a corner and the sat receiver, which was in a cabinet above the driver, suddenly popped out. Fortunately the coax cables stopped it about a foot short of the steering wheel. Sure startled me though. The receiver is now held by heavy duty velcro.

Joanne and I are almost home.  We are spending our last night out at the Kentucky Horse Park.  The Park is shut down and the water is now turned off for the season.  The Natchez Trace Parkway was really a nice drive.  We could only spend two days on it and really could have spent two weeks.  Free camping on the Trace was a pleasant surprise.  We stayed at the Rocky Springs campground (south end) the first night and the Meriwether Lewis campground (north end) the second night.

Wayne We stopped at Flying J and picked up a Wilson cellular telephone antenna and adapter for or Verizon LG phones.  It really does work great.  Just like you said.

It would work for browsing the internet it would fail using Microsoft Money to retreive daily stock quotes for investments,

I had a similar problem when I first set up wireless at  home.  Most everything was fine nut couldn't get into American Express or Camilles eBay account.

Netgear tech support pointed me to the instructions for setting packet size and recommended a size.  Sorry that's the extent of my memory & all the details are in the 'puter that's a 1000 miles from here.

Suggest the web site or tech support for your router/wireless hub.
