In most ways, this was a typical Motel 6. The room was pretty standard. It didn't have a refrigerator or microwave, although there's one by the ice machine,. The biggest problem was the Internet. The signal was weak and I needed to re-arrange the furniture to put the computer in a place where it got an acceptable signal. Unfortunately, this wasn't close enough to a plug to leave it plugged in so the battery would eventually run out and I'd need to move it somewhere else to charge it. The Internet speeds would sometimes be around 500K - 600Kbps, which was enough to stream video, but it never lasted long. It would then throttle the throughput to sub-dial-up speeds, generally 20K - 30Kbps but sometimes 10Kbps or less. This would often last for 30 minutes or more at a time. A 30 minute video would often take 2 hours or more to watch with all the interruptions. Some days it never ran fast enough to watch a video or to do remote desktop. As the days passed it got even worse and by the end it couldn't even stream audio. And then on a daily basis your access code would run out and you'd need to figure out that that was your problem and then play around with it until it eventually let you enter a new access code instead of just telling you that the old one had expired. This generally ate up 5 or 10 minutes a day.

... around) it is a stunner.
It is at altitude so when we went for a walk Sunday morning you lost your breath very easily.
We walked along the beach front and in the pines, then travelled by car to Emerald Bay for spectacular views.
California is one place that I want to explore in fine detail. It is so different from the rest of the US, and I really, truly love it here.

I got some great GoPro footage as we drove along the steep road towards the bay and we then found a very slanted parking spot, where the RV sat at a very precarious position, as we jumped out to get some pictures. It was a site to behold as we stared down at this beautiful little bay on Lake Tahoe, with it's beautiful ...
... of the nails. Attended 90 minute timeshare presentation this morning for which we were awarded a $75 Visa card and 2 nights in a resort (but at least six months later). Told them we were homeless and our average overnight spend is $47 including camping, that because we have no house nor job we don't need vacations (we have nothing to "vacate" from you see!),
Onwards tomorrow on 50E and have a night ($44) booked at ...
... This resort use to belong to Frank Sinatra back in the rat pack days, it was built with half of the building in California and half in Nevada, the border runs through the middle of the Hotel.... in the swimming pool you can swim from California to Nevada .... lol .... there is actually a line drawn across the middle, ...
... a ship that probably can take on 150 people. We were able to set up our camera and tripod with plenty of space and today we even used the reflector which was cool and really adds great light to our photos. It was fun to play with different lights although I think we need to get either an assistant to travel with us :D (which is not possible unfortunately for many reasons) or a stand for the reflector, ...
