It is great to get real information from your trip experiences and I will for sure share mine during my trip.
I have a hotspot device using Rogers service and so far in all my previous camping trip the Internet services has been good enough to view this forum and update my thread....
With this device I can access the Internet in any of my WIFI devices, this include my iPod, notebook and iPad, actually up to 5 devices could be connected. I had this for over 3 years and has the following data flex plan:
$5 20 MB
$15 150 MB
$25 500 MB
5 cents per MB over 500 MB
I hardy go over $5 monthly because of free wifi but in this trip, I will use it to get interesting destinations spots and information, I won't hesitate to use it if I don't find free WIFI location. I have my work cell for unlimited send/receive texting and use voice for emergency only. My monthly mobile/data is $5 so going crazy with my hotspot in this trip will be ok.
I have been reading in the other forum in Facebook about the A-Frame wind kit and how much damage the wind could do to our rig. I don't have the kit, so I will always check the wind condition/weather every day using my hotspot device.
Does anybody know how much wind our rig could handle when it is up?
What wind speed is not safe to take down or put up the A-Fame?
What else should I be aware to avoid damages to my A128S?
Here are the check list I will do to the TT and TV before each long trip:
- Tire pressure
- Fluid levels
- chain hookup
- tongue weight
- pigtail hookup
- adjust electric brake controller
- fridge set to battery
- all door panels are locked or secured
- hitch ball is properly mounted and locked
- extended mirrors are securely mounted, adjusted and cleaned
- all my GPS programmed correctly for next stop
- CarCorder ready to record trip and memory space available, 16 GIG= 3.5 hours of video
- lights and signal lights check with TV/TT
- remember to gas up
- have snacks and drinks available during driving
- record odometer and gas usage
Please point out any task that should be included in the check list
I'm still in my preparation stage towards my trip. I got more tour guide information for each provinces and I got my TripTik from CAA:
The TripTik identifies the rest areas on the route, it had lots along TCH.
Less than 3 weeks to go and I'm still to doing more research.
