21 Aug 11 Great Fun!
Dave, our guide, did a great job and gave us a wonderful ride down the river. The food was good and plentiful. The various beers were excellent!
The lakeside cabin had good showers and more than enough room for the four of us. I do wonder if what happens if all the beds occupied. When the people were all awake, the common area would have to be very friendly if all were inside.
The WiFi connection at the brew pub was iffy. Sometimes it just went away. I averaged about a 15 minute connection, which let me check e-mail once a day. My younger son couldn’t download his weather charts – too big. (meteorology student that eats, sleeps and breathes weather.) The older boy needed to download some large updates and couldn’t. He did manage to do some coding that didn’t need internet. He couldn’t test them, tho’ because he needs an internet connection to test the app on an iPad.
Then again, we’re on vacation! I was really kind of glad that my husband wasn’t constantly interrupted by e-mail downloads on his Droid.
