Nice paint job! It looks like you were able to match the original striping colors quite well.

John,

Thanks but I can't take credit for the striping. The previous owner had that done and they are decals, not paint. Have no idea where he got them though. Notice the SunLine decals are gone? In time I'lll see about replacing them.

this camper was a one owner unit. They picked it up at the factory and have many, many thoudands of miles on it but the overall condition is really good. The only thing I wish is that he would have been a little neater putting all that sillycone on it but atleast he put it on and the unit has been high and dry. There are a couple scrapes to the sheetmetal but nothing I can't live with.


Is there a thread here about internet and camping? I guess I'll have to learn how to use the wireless connection on this laptop. I'd like to have Wifey's computer and mine connected but that might be asking alot.


Jim

Life without computers? How do you ever do it? Must be really short trips. *really big grin*

Seriously, I do enjoy time away from computers but most people are getting so electrocuted they need a generator just to walk around so I thought I'd check into it for us. If the price of unlimited wireless internet through Verizon is about what we pay for DSL on our landline then I'd jump-in-it. And if I get online with my computer then Wifey has to have her own connection. Do the CGs with "free" WiFi have limits on the number of computers per site?

So many questions I guess you can tell I live a sheltered life.

Jim

Jim,

First, let me add my "Welcome aboard!" to the others. We're glad you are here.

My wife and I both have Blackberrys through Verizon. As part of the that, we get unlimited data for the two phones. All of our email goes to the phones as well as to our computers so we pretty much stay connected as long as there is cell signal. The BB's can do some browsing, etc.

Since most of our camping is in GC's with no hookups, we tend to look for the free WiFi hot spots where ever we are. For instance, in Tupper Lake, NY the public library has free service although you do have to go to the desk and get the password if someone has not already given it to you. Then you can sit in their lounge and log on or just park next to the building and log on. They usually leave the service up even when the library is closed.

The camp store right outside the CG where we stay for a week or two at a time in June and August has free wifi with no password required.

Generally, if a CG offers WiFi, it is not limited to one computer. I will probably be proven wrong on this at some places, but that has been our experience. It's pretty much the same as hotels. We both take our laptops when we travel and have never had a problem being online at the same time.

One other thought... When I travel, I always take a LAN cable with me. Some hotels may not have wifi in every room, but may have a LAN connection in the room. Many hotels have a business center and the same may be true there as well.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the welcome but I must ask before I forget, What kind of hitch do you have on the rear of your tt to tow that dingy and the boat? LOL!

About the only computing we've done on the road is hooking a LAN cable to family systems but now I think even they have gone wireless. And I've never even tried to connect to a wireless system, not even here at home. I'll have to learn how to do that for sure. I'll get it figured out soon enough.

I've been playing around trying to get all the camping gear in one place to determine what to keep and what to sell at the next yard sale. This is a bigger job than I thought it would be. Would be easier to pitch it all and start over again, LOL! I know this is Winter and you guys are having a god one but we've been in the fifties most of the day with a good wind so I've been inside in the recliner.



Jim

That truck would pull all that stuff if I asked it to. But Mama's Grand Cherokee is her happy refuge when we travel. The dog rides with her, too. I get to listen to the purr of the Cummins all by myself.

If your laptop has Vista or Win 7, it's pretty easy. The newer platforms make things like this much easier.

As Kathy says, we're in for a couple of really COLD nights and days. I'd give a lot to be in temps in the fifties right now.

Deciding what to carry and what not to tote along is an ongoing process. Some of it is trial and error, and some is school of hard knocks. Put some thought into it every now and then before that yard sale. One day you will want to sell a particular item, and week later, you'll decide it is essential to take along. We're still fine tuning after all these years.

Jim, no worries. It happens often when we are both posting in the same thread and Jon and John know each other so no problem. Thanks for posting back though.

While we are both Sunline Fan’ addicts.... Jon is our true Sunline Fan. If you ever get to a Meet and Greet and can see Jon's collection of Sunline "stuff,” it is truly amazing. While I can recognize many of the newer camper year and model floor plans by the windows, trim and where the fridge vent is, Jon can rattle off frame numbers of forum members campers.... and go back to about the beginning of Sunline history. He is our passionate Sunline Fan.

Sreve.... I guess the answer to my storage problems is to put some items in the tow vehicle. I'll have the setup equipment and other non-home items there while the storage in the tt will be for what Wifey needs to be comfortable.

We usually have three computers going at any time we're awake. One with Win2K, two with XP and one Vista. Being unplugged from the internet is like walking barefoot. Only the Vista laptop has wireless on it But I guess I could put wireless on the XP machines.

John.... I really like this site. It is a shame most of the members and activities are so far from us. If I win the Lottery I might could do a long trip like M&G. Always wanted to go to PE Island one day so we never know.

I'm always amazed at someone with such a good memory. It is all I can do to find my way home at night.

I guess I should move my posts on out of the testing area. Don't want to get slapped.
