Life style changes taking effect

We’ve been making small changes in our life style since October of last year trying to recapture lost youth, or at least better health to enjoy the years ahead. We retired which is no small change. Shortly after both of us retired we had severe joint problems. Mines gone away but Della still suffers since she retired the end of April. 

Among the changes are starting Juice Plus to improve our nutrition, walking 10,000 steps per day, substituting the  Complete drink for two meals a day, drinking more water, and most recently biking. Today, got up had my shake and went for a bike ride down Skaha Lake. I’d say that constitutes a major lifestyle change. The view was wonderful. They say you never forget how to ride a bike. You do want to practise a bit though to avoid them prickly, desert like bushes around here though. 


Emergency Repairs on Tiffin Allegro RED

Just north of Cache Creek, BC a friendly motorist told us we had a door open. This is something I check before I move so I knew something was wrong, sure enough, the “skin” on the door peeled back. Theres nothing to be done in Cache Creek that time of day so we duct tapped it up and kept an eye on it. Repairs 2 The day was getting late so we diverted from Pencticton to Vernon so I could get some rest. It was late in the day so finding a place for the night took some effort. We found a place on Swan Lake that would do for the night. Yeah. Swan lake site Della’s father Maurice was travelling with us. He decided to stay with sisters while we concentrated on repairs. The next day we continued on to Pencticton hoping Mid Town RV could help us out. The repairs were holding but didnt look like they’d last all the way to Candle Lake, SK or even Balzac, AB. Shane and Tom at Mid Town thankfully helped us out. The skin is back on and looking good. It was another long day but we were in our own RV and our own bed that night in Penticton. The repairs put us off our schedule so we will miss a meeting in Kelowna but we made up by visiting friends in Pencticton.

Wifi Ranger Internet Reciever Review

We’ve been using a Wifi Ranger Elite for the past month. It fulfills its promise and provides a secure network within our RV that we can use for our personal and Juice Plus+ business applications. It took a while for me to get a handle on all the options in the interface. I’m still not certain I have set it up to maximize our Internet connection speed. To be fair, I don’t read instructions well. I have used the company website to view videos though.

The issue is the speed of the networks within range of the antennae.  The speed of our current campground varies widely. Now, Sunday morning 08:00 AM the speed is great at over 8 Mps. Most nights, I find the speed so slow, I turn the equipment off.

I had planned on roof mounting the antennae. I’ ve postponed those plans until I find a spot that isn’t interfered with when we use the air conditioners and has the best shot at the campground antennae. At this park, the antennae is behind us so I’ve positioned the external antennae at the rear of the RV. TIme will tell if this is the optimum position and I mount the unit permanently.

I’m very satisfied with the Wifi Ranger but still plan on investigating a cellular modem to backup our wifi connection speed when the campground network speed falls to an unacceptable level. The wifi router software allows this to be managed automatically.

Williams Lake Campground

When we stay in Williams Lake, we stay at the Stampede Campground. It’s handy for us to visit friends in family while we’re in town.

It’s a clean, friendly, fairly quiet place with a lot of history. It offers tenting through pull through units for the 40 footers. the grounds are clean as is the washrooms. The managers are very friendly and accommodating. We had our own reserved parking stall.

The Stampede hosts the Mountain Race. Years ago the race came from the top of Fox Mountain. Now, it still comes down a fair slope but no longer the mountain.


Williams Lake event summary

We had our first Juice Plus+ event on May 27th. Our mission is to improve the health of family and friends by telling them about the benefits. We had a good turnout, had some fun and reached some people. We used teleconferencing (ZOOM) to bring in a speaker from Camrose, AB. Four other speakers also told the crowd about their experiences. Each has had drastic improvements in their lives as a result of taking Juice Plus.

Parts of Della’s and Jessica’s speeches are in the attached video.
