Reader L asks me:

Texas Oilfield Gate Guard Location

Hi Andy & Kathy,
Enjoyed reading your blog… My husband Tom & I are a little older than ya’ll, 66/63 and have enjoyed fulltiming since 1999.

My Broadband Internet Connection Hardware Updated

We take plenty of things for granted in every day life — especially if we live in a fairly populous area. Water when you twist the faucet, electricity at the flip of a switch, heat or cold air pouring almost silently out of vents, a TV with a bazillion channels and an internet connection so fast you could download the Library of Congress if you were of such a mind. Try doing all that as easily in an RV,OK? Different world huh cowboy? And of course if you are boondocking without the basic amenities, it
