It's been a frustrating couple of days, to say the least
Seven minutes is all it took for a break-in to happen in our RV, to lose $12,000 and counting worth of equipment - everything of value except the dog.

I'm so sorry this has happened to the three of you. It must be horrible knowing some jerk stole from you. I hope the steps to an almost normal routine happens quickly, and you're able to recover the loss of the stolen property.

Interesting article on Satellite Internet. So you are back to LTE/ 4G coverage.   Here in Europe 4G access for short periods of say upto 1 month is relatively cheap  (compared to other holiday costs).  But for fulltime RV/ motorohome living this changes somewhat. It's possible in many single European countries to get unlimited 4G/LTE typically on a lowish cost subscription.  So this still doesn't totally work out should you cross country boundaries.   Bottom line: In Europe there is no all singing / dancing cost effective solution to date, as far as I can see.

With so much noise coming from the world of tech these days, it can be hard to tell to what you should pay attention. Not with the help of PC Mike, though!
