Does anyone know if Algonac has WiFi? I wasn't able to catch a signal last year, and not seeing it listed online.

I couldn't get one either last year, so I brought my Verizon mobile hotspot. It hooked up to Canada, though, charging roaming, so I had to clear this up with Verizon when I got home.

It's very common for cell phones along the US side of the river to connect to Canadian cell towers. The "foreign" minutes can be very expensive. You can turn off roaming or dispute your bill at the end of the month.

Checked with Verizon office, going into settings for data and turning off roaming should force a connection to the Mich side of the river. Verizon coverage map indicates 4G LTE coverage at park. LTE service generally means verizon tower equipment as opposed to access through tower of another carrier which would be considered roaming. Not guaranteed but a good indicator.

By default phone makes connection to strongest signal / least busy tower that is why we get the Canadian tower. Roaming off should allow phone to find US tower if one is available.

If people wished to check other carrier coverage the state park address is 8732 River Rd Clay,Mi 48001

Hey are any of you interested in buying my bunk cover and the front bench seat cushions from my UHaul? I've changed over to a 2 person table up front and I don't need them, and I don't want to store them.
I'll sell the bunk cover (no foam) and I also have the lower couch cushion (with foam) as well as the 3 little foam filler cushions (you need them to fill in the lower bed when the bunk is in the 'up' position).
I'll sell the lot for $30. I'll bring them to Algonac with me if anyone wants them.

So does anyone know if Roger Kimble is coming with his VT, too? That would make 3 VTs! That's about 30% of all known VTs still on the road (at least through FiberglassRV.com and UHaulcamper.com).

JP, that works for me! I'll bring them with me to Algonac. Now they can go to a good home, and I can put money into my camping piggy bank

It's getting down to the wire if you are going to order a t-shirt with a 2013 rally logo on it and have it for the rally.

The selections are available at:
http://www.zazzle.com/drccac

There are several other items such as buttons, magnets, hats and mugs available, also with a 2013 rally logo.

All the shirts or clothing listed are just shortcuts to where you can pick style, color and size of your choosing. Actually that is the same for most items. The item listed is just a shortcut to the options that are like the shown item. Different mug styles and colors from the coffee mug listed, or button sizes and shapes from the button listed.

If the shirt says "custom back" it means I created text areas on the back for you to customize with your own trailer brand/model and year. I generally left the "Customize This" button enabled so once you pick an item you can totally customize most of them with your own message, font, and layout.

We have two Boardwalk folding bikes by Dahon that we are looking to sell. They are sturdy, one-speed bikes with front hand brake and rear coaster brake. We purchased them in 2009 and have used them on various camping trips. We would still be using them but we recently purchased two UHaul folding bikes made by Citizen that match our UHaul colors.

The Boardwalks were purchased for $300 each from the Salem (MA) Bike Shop and are in great shape. We are asking $125 each or $225 for the pair. We can bring them along to Algonac if anyone is interested. I'll be posting pictures later tonight.

Algonac Glassic (very loose and relaxed) Official Schedule:

- Friday evening 6-ish, Meet and Greet at Site 52 (Pam Garlow)


- Saturday morning, 10AM coffeecake and camping gizmos. Bring your ingenious camping inventions, or cool camping gizmos to site 52 and show them off.


- Saturday afternoon 1-4 camper open house. Tour everyone's camper. If you don't want people touring your rig, that is fine. Just close your door, no problem.


- Saturday night 6pm - Group Potluck Dinner at site 52 – bring your own meat and a passing dish. We can gather some grills together to cook on.


- After dinner, we'll have a drawing for a few prizes (none of which will cause you heartache at the border with tariffs or duties ). And if you want to donate a prize, we’ll have that much more to give away.


- Saturday night’s fire will include any music you want to provide and I believe we have a ukulele coming as well as a spoon player. So bring a few of your own instruments (or spoons) and we can have a fun evening of songs.

- Armel is bringing his scale so we can figure out how heavy our tongues really are.

The city of Algonac has a small downtown with a nice boardwalk off the river, for any of you that want to make a trip into town.


I will arrive on Thursday (9/5) so I'll wave a welcome at ya coming in

Don't forget to check out the Algonac Glassic shirts (see post #169)

Looking forward to another wonderful weekend !!
Rock on, EggHeads!
