New Wannabe!

Hi to all! Thrilled to be able to post and ask a few questions once in awhile. I'm so envious of all of you (in a good way). I would absolutely love, like and adore having a travel camper. I am a retired school teacher from El Paso, now living in South Carolina. I have my heart set on a Lil Snoozy someday and since they are made right here where I live, perhaps it is not so far fetched. Love everything about this camper but most of all, the living arrangement. I am an old movie fan (Netflix, Hulu, etc.) and would like to be able to watch these at night while camping. I am interested in learning how Wifi internet service works when camping especially along the beach. Thanks in advance for putting up with newbies like me. I will probably ask some really silly questions from you. Love and happiness to you all!

Carol, with my Droid from verizon as long as I have signal I can streal netflix on my phone and can plug it into a larger tv screen with an adapter...uses data but its an option if no wifi is around. I would still suggest carrying along some dvd's for more remote kinds of locations.

Check out ParkLiner too, there in NC and make a real nice camper!


best of luck

Wow Deryk, I never thought of that! When you hook up somewhere like a KOA or Park do you usually receive the Wifi automatically? So it is only when you are out in the wilderness that you could use the Droid?

We have been to the four SC state parks at the beach. Wifi was only available at the campground office/store area. One of the parks didn't have it at all. I doubt it is good enough to watch movies. The campground we are at now in GA has wifi throughout the campground, but it is erratic and not able to accommodate much use. Sometimes we can't get on this site or any others, or get email. Cable tv is the same, sometimes erratic, not too many channels, much to my dismay no History channel.

You may find better wifi and cable at a private campground like a KOA. Our experience is with state parks.

Carol, I cant speak for SC but on the west coast in the 8 states I have traveled through in the past 2 years its been my experience that few public campgrounds such as state parks offer Wi-Fi. If they have it, its often only near their office to allow for a quick email check. Did read someplace recently that some of the state parks may be adding it though. Cant recall what states. Many private campgrounds do have Wi-fi but some charge for its use & more often than not its not the fastest Wi-Fi you will have ever been on. Many private campgrounds also offer cable TV but not all and its also an item you can often expect to be charged extra for. As others have suggested far better that you down load movies at home prior to leaving or bring your own DVD's.

Drink, make music, dance around the bonfire, laugh with friends, swap stories, and stare up at the stars and realize your place in the cosmos

That's a given. And, a remote control for the fridge.
