A Great Start to 2016

We did nothing special for New Year's Eve. I think we were asleep by 11. But on New Year's Day we met old Fort Lauderdale friends for lunch at an outside patio bar and grill. What a gorgeous day! And good long time friends!



By January 5, we had to be over on the west coast of Florida because we had a seminar scheduled for the Greater Tampa Bay Computer User Group. We booked a week at our favorite campground - Thousand Trails, Peace River. That would put us in the right place for another seminar scheduled for the Sarasota Technology User Group, and a third that we were asked to present while we are at the Peace River campground.
We love this park. The natural beauty is stunning. We've stayed here for many months all totaled over the years, but it's been about 3 years since we've been here. Glad to see it is still as beautiful, and we took a spot right on the river.



The seminars for the computer user groups went well. We taught Google Photos for both groups.



And, using Google Photos, we made little movies of the events. Here's the one from the Sarasota group.


Then, we did an impromptu seminar for the folks at Peace River.


The Verizon signal is good enough here to do our Sunday show, so we'll stay till Monday, then head back to Fort Lauderdale for a few weeks. We will be back in the RV and headed to Riverside RV park for a Geek Week, the first week of February.

Verizon speeds at Peace River campground are excellent at 23Mbps down, and 8.2 Up. This will work to do our Sunday web show.

Hey George! Good to see you!
Yes, this is a new RV since we saw you last. It's a lot bigger and better, although we loved the old one too.
Glad to see you enjoying the transition to a home without wheels - I check in on your blog once in a while :-)
We also have a home without wheels too, but we're still in the RV more. The house is actually my Mom's - she's in assisted living. You were there once ... on your way to Israel and you stopped in S Florida to get a new laptop. Here's the post: http://geeksontour.blogspot.com/2008/04/george-gets-visa-i-mean-vista.html
