    October 10Sorry, I couldn't find the previous thread on cellphones. I am at TT Pio Pico and my high antenna and expensive amplifier don't work Verizon while my neighbor just uses her phone for ATT. In my research I learned of a new cellphone virtual carrier backed ...  more

      Bill Joyce (and Diane Melde) October 10 Google Fi uses Sprint, T-Mobile and US Cellular towers, not Verizon or AT&T.   US Cellular is the 5th largest cellular company.  There are places in Pio Pico where Verizon does work and there are many places in Pio Pico where AT&T does not ...  more

      WDK450 Wed at 10:27 AM I don't know where I got the idea about Google Fi using ATT - I thought i read it on the virtual cellphone carriers chart.. I was returning my Google Fi phone to Google this morning as it DID NOT WORK AT PIO PICO.  I'll be out trying to a get ...  more

      JoeTheComputerguy October 10 Not really a TT property. It’s an Encore/TC property and charges $20/night as a TC guest.

    October 6It depends on how far the next TT Resort is. We stay 21 nights and if the next TT is within one day's travel, we start the next 21 nights the day we leave the last one.

    • Catgoss
      Halfloaf October 6 I prefer Sunday... interferes less with work and the weekenders are going so generally get a selection of sites. Friday is at the way bottom of the list and Saturday right after. So Mon-Thur would be my choice after Sunday.
    • Catgoss
      Lou & Kathy October 6 We move on Monday as we find it is the best day to find a good site as the weekenders leave on Sunday
    • Catgoss
      JoeTheComputerguy October 6 Monday, Tues or Wed yields the best spots. But Sunday or Thursday could work . Friday and Sat would be the worst days to move.

        Tink & Chuck September 25 I am sorry for your loss, but would love to have you join us on our TT journeys when you learn how to tow the 5th wheel. We'll be starting out here in Texas and heading to Florida, then up the east coast in early 2020.

      Tink & Chuck September 25 Sorry we'll miss you up at Lake Conroe. You will be there only a short time before us. We will be up in Medina Lake TT around that time. I would love to do a Get Together at a TT with you if our paths ever cross.

      JoeTheComputerguy September 8 “how it works “ is a pretty broad question. There are many different options from a couple hundred dollar zone pass to a full blow Odyssey membership for $13k+.

        Tom and Linda C September 9 We cannot reserve a spot, its like a free for all to find any spot.  Good spots are took by permanent residents.  Yeah, two plus years ago it was great, but still not spot reservations.

      Andy F September 8 If you only want it for the winter season it's probably not worth it. Here's why: First, if you're not a fulltimer you'll probably only want the most basic membership (Zone Pass, roughly $500/yr), so you're not spending thousands of dollars on a premium m...  more
