Re: Video: VW Future Camper

We'll see if VW is still around after their massive fines for cheating the entire world with fabricated emissions results. It has already cost them over $30 BILLION . Now the Audi CEO is in jail also. I read they may incur another $30 BILLION on top of that. OUCH! I bet FIAT ends up owning it all. ...

Re: Verizon Cell Tower Forthcoming in Lake Clear

I have actually heard before when you are too close to a tower it actually doesn't help. That was a while ago, so perhaps it no longer applies to LTE radios.

Re: Verizon Cell Tower Forthcoming in Lake Clear

See, that’s slightly odd because up until 2016, I wasn’t able to get any “reliable” signal in the 140s. 1 to 2 bars if I was lucky, if it’s 3 to 4 now that seems like a significant increase. I think that’s where we’re staying in July.

Re: Verizon Cell Tower Forthcoming in Lake Clear

So, according to Verizon their coverage of the area has greatly increased in the last two years. Appears to be a lot more red on the map of the area.

Re: Verizon Cell Tower Forthcoming in Lake Clear

Yes I did some test again last week and was getting mainly 2-3 bars LTE with verizon. The data throughput wasn't all that great, but it seems to be more reliable than last year thats for sure. One comment I heard was that the signal may not be all that great due to the use of the fake tree technic ...

Re: First Time

That cownoe is awesome. Enjoy it. This is the first year in 25 years that I don't think I am going to make it up there. Once you go once, you'll never want to miss it again!

Re: Successful reservation on the first attempt...

Consider yourself fortunate. We tried for 140 sites at the end of September beginning of October and we couldn't get anything. Went for low 200 sites when that failed and they went instantly.

Re: New Reservation / Cancellation Logging (Booking Buddy)

Is Booking buddy permanently dead? I thought I read once upon a time that reserve America updates killed it.
