Frontier Days

Current Location: Fort Toulouse Campground, Wetumpka, Alabama

November means Frontier Days at Fort Toulouse. On Wednesday, Val and David both volunteered. David helped direct cars to the parking areas while Val helped the buses full of school kids get where they were supposed to go to unload and to load. Malcolm had to work on Wednesday. Val and David were pretty well worn out by dinner time. We all slept well on Wednesday night.

Today, Malcolm was off work and was able to help volunteer. We all got up early, grabbed our bikes and headed to one of the vendor’s tents to have a great breakfast of biscuits and gravy, eggs and pancakes. Very tasty. We decided we will do that again tomorrow morning.

Malcolm and David directed parking traffic today until lunch time, then Malcolm returned to his post there until about 3:00. Val unloaded and loaded buses until about the same time. David had to run out after lunch to go to the dentist and run a couple errands for us.

When we got back to the trailer, we found our flaky internet device gasping its last dying breath, so we ate dinner and then headed into Montgomery to the AT&T store. Our internet device had a one year warranty and a two year contract and we’ve had it 13 months. So, $200 later, we left the store with a new MiFi Liberate (thanks for the recommendation Erika Dorsey). We stopped by the frozen yogurt place before heading home.

We’re now using the new Mifi device and it is head and shoulders above the old one. Besides allowing 10 connections instead of 5, it also has 3 bars of 4G LTE signal just sitting on the side table, where the other one had two bars of plain 4G service propped up in the window.

Tomorrow is more car and bus parking. Hopefully, it will be a tad warmer than today’s 60-ish temperatures with the wind making it feel colder (at least the rain went away early).
