A trip to Radio Shack and a Heath Kit and your be talking around the world... It was amazing just to talk to the another state. Now we pick up our phone and use Skype to have a face to face talk with family in other countries.... It is crazy how different the world has become.

Yes. Radio shack got lots of business from dad. First name basis with all the guys. His best friend was a technical guru.

No intention of being rude, just pointing out a realistic approach. Before cell phones, we always found the hospitals where we camped just in case one of our boys got hurt, etc. Since we got cell phones, we rely strictly on 911 and the emt's plus the boys are grown and now it's just TOWTA and me.

It's going to be mostly Debbie and I also. And whichever dogs we bring along. My stepsons 26 and he's glued to his computer. Not much of a camper anymore. I live for the outdoors. Tenting and having just what you bring in the truck was all I did. This is a life changer and our first trailer ,although I did trailer with my folks when I was the kid in the tent twenty feet in the bush.

Disconnect, so that if the TT bursts into flames, it does not take you TV with it. Two deductibles......
