|Annie and I visited Palatki ruins|
I've visited The Cousins for the past two weekends. It's about 1.5 hours through Oak Creek Canyon. I'm not yet jaded enough to speed through the switchbacks.
|No vehicles over 50 feet long. Please.|
I have just ordered a passel of gadgets for making my life even better. I'll tell you about them when I've received and enjoyed them. If they suck, I'll tell you about that, too.
Tonight, I activated my Command Center (in the footwell of my passenger side). I'm powering my Wilson Sleek 4G-V signal booster together with my Millenicom MiFi hotspot.
I'm also charging my telephone. I'll plug in my Nook, if I feel fancy.
Although most of my gadgets have their own battery power, the Wilson Sleek is the exception; it needs continuous power to boost a signal. This is where the Prius "generator" comes to my rescue. It turns itself on for a minute or two every so often (Suanne figured about 4 minutes every half hour for hers). That keeps the 12 volt accessory battery happy.
One of my new gadgets will hopefully bypass that necessity. I'll tell you about it soon. The Mifi has a battery, and when I don't need signal amplification I can use that very well. When I set up tonight, I got two bars of 3G without the Sleek, and four bars of 4G with it.
I just figured out that the same cable powers up my phone, Mifi, and Nook. Oh frabjous day!
I just got an exciting idea for my next trip! I'll tell you about it once I'm started.
