|A cool morning, so I bundled up!|
Success! There is sufficient receptivity on the hill loop of the campground if I use our signal booster. The only problem is that the hill is prairie transformed to grassy campsites--no shade, and not a good spot for camping when weather is in the 90's.
An overnight trip consists mostly of arriving, setting up, eating, sleeping, and leaving in the morning. Sound like a waste of time? Well, I do see the point. However, I was determined to accomplish more than just check out the cellphone receptivity.
After checking out the receptivity, I played (field tested) with some of my new toys: hitch tightener, foldable storage bags, but mostly using the new stabilizing jacks and jack pads. Also, I erected the awning again, using the four-inch suction cups. Everything worked well, so this was a successful "shake-down" overnighter.
Below are more photos and captions of my mini-trip.
