Network Frustrations

Saturday March 25th 2017

One of the reasons I write this blog is to document my day to day life on my Rambling Road Trip. Today’s entry is not going to be very long or very interesting. For the second day in a row I stayed at camp all day.


Early in the day the sky was pure blue and the wind was nowhere to be found. 

It was another beautiful day weather wise. The first two thirds of the daylight hours were sunny and calm. At times the wind was not blowing at all. A very unusual occurrence in the desert. The last third of the daylight into the evening has made up for the lack of wind. It started to cloud over just before sunset and the wind has been howling.

My day has been focused on TV watching and computer based web surfing. These activities were interrupted by chores around the RV and a couple of walks around the park. On TV I managed to find and watch most of the Redsox vs. Phillies spring training game. The game ended as a nine inning three three tie. Since baseball, even in exhibition games, doesn’t recognize ties, by some quirk of the rules it is recorded as a loss.


At sunset the clouds had moved in and the wind was blowing strong.

The computer use was mostly frustration. For some reason my connection to the network is very slow today. I’m using my Verizon cell phone data plan. It had been running at reasonable 4G speeds since I got here. Today my speed tests have shown speeds under one meg down and even less for uploads. If you don’t have at least three meg down some web pages won’t load. I’m concerned that the slow upload may make this blog post take a very long time to complete. Time will tell.
