Here We Go Again

If you missed us yesterday looking for a post, it wasn't there.  We were at the Escapees Headquarters and RV Park and we couldn't connect to the Internet with our Verizon MiFi.  Our computers would not work at all, after multiple attempts.  It has been very frustrating.

We left this morning and drove 169 miles to Louisiana and stopped for the night at another Passport America Park.  They offer free WiFi and it seems to be better than our Verizon signal.  Still, neither signal is strong enough to upload photos to Blogger.  Bummer.

We took quite a few pictures of the Escapees Headquarters and when we get a good signal, we'll do a post about it and the CARE adult daycare facility.  Marti will give her impressions about it, coming from her long term care background she sees things in a different light (and her impressions are good).

Tomorrow we're heading towards the Florida panhandle, hopefully we make it all the way to the FamCamp at the Navy base in Pensacola.  We need to soak our toes in some salt water for a couple of days.  Maybe even chase down a pelican or two for an attempt at a picture.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  2. The ongoing saga of finding a good connection ... we're all set up now with our router and air card, just need to find some remote places to test them.

  3. We have a Verizon mi-fi as well, but try to only use it half the time, and tether our phones the other half. Amazingly enough, the tethering works better sometimes, and it's the same service ;)

  4. How long are you hanging around Florida?? We head to Tampa area mid March. Any chance you'll be in the area??

    Safe Travels and Happy Trails....

  5. I can't believe you're going to blast right past me! MS Sandhill Crane NWR is only .9 of a mile off of I-10. I could even offer you an overnight stop with water and electric for free. :)

    No roses blooming right now, but you could stop and smell the pine trees...

    I'm looking forward to Marti's impressions of CARE.

  9. Park wifi, or lack thereof, is one of our pet peeves. Don't get us started!

    How long are you planning to be in Pensacola? We're not too far down the road near Gulf Shores.

    (And, after seeing Judy's comment we're feeling really bad that we whizzed right by her when we passed through MS. We didn't realize she was that close!!)

    Safe travels across the Gulf Coast!

  11. Poor WiFi is one of the things I dread the most. I am so used to high speed instant internet connection.
