A mobile post

Good morning all from site 12 at the
Just north of beautiful Manistee, Michigan!
This is finally our first mo-ho trip of the season!

That's right! I got me a Laptop,
and they have wi-fi!

It's a fairly basic laptop, can't play my newest games, not enough power or memory. But seems more than adequate for mobile surfing and posting, and keeping up with my favorite blogs. So even on our trips, if the park has wi-fi, I'm on! And of course this laptop came with the new Vista operating system. Man! what a memory hog that is! I can't believe they actually sell these laptops with only 512 memory! That's absolutely the minimum Microsoft
recommends. I went with the 1G.

And as niffty as the finger pad is,
I also got me a wireless optical mouse.
It comes with this small USB connector.
Just plug it in a port, and your off and mousing!
And when not in use the connector snaps in the bottom of the mouse ,

disconnecting the battery, saving battery life.

How cool is that!

And of course, the first thing I did was install
some extra security. I Un-installed the free 60 day Norton, and installed the FREE Avast! Like I've said many times, I always like free! And it comes highly recommended from PC World, which I subscribe to. I highly recommend this magazine for people who, like me, are computer challenged. Always lots of info and tips.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
We're going to do some sightseeing, a little gaming, and lot's of eating!
But right now while Craig's still sleeping,
I'm off to read some blogs!

    I tend to prefer Logitech mice, but I have used the mouse you show there and it can't really be beat for traveling. :)

    Hope you guys had a great time! <3

    Finally glad you got out in the moho. I know you must be excited. Now if you could just add a Motosat for internet, well, that would be real living...maybe you could pay for it with your winnings at the casino

  9. laptops are best for that, just communicating on the go, especially with the abundance of free WAN.
