8/7/14 Thursday in East Stroudsburg,PA (Timothy Lake South-TT/OW)
John called DISH to get a technician to come today. They said expect someone after 5 pm. Meanwhile we talked to our friends now at the Scotrun campground (TT) about a time to get together. We decided we’d pack a lunch, go to the Post Office then to their campground. Amazing how fast the morning went by so what I thought would be a visit in the morning became a visit for lunch. We arrived at noon and left around 1:20pm, needing to get our groceries then on to Miss Zanzibar by 3 pm in case our DISH guy’s appointment at 3 is very short. We had a lovely time at Scotrun sharing thoughts on cats and RVs. They’re wanting to buy a better RV as well so we’re exchanging experiences.
We got home shortly after 3 pm. Dang! Mark had left a note that he’d been by.
John sat down with the manuals trying to figure out what may be the issue. We’d determine that the satellite was pointed just fine and had no obstructions so the problem had to be between that satellite antenna and the TV. I took a nap. When I woke up I saw the TV on with a picture in a picture display. John had not only found the solution (two wires had been crossed before they were connected to the DVR, so they were in the wrong ports), he’d discovered how to set the screen for picture-in-picture and to display words when you don’t want the sound. I have to say that between my refreshing nap and his success we were in really good spirits.
Supper was fun with fresh food: our Hearty Western Casserole with corn on the cob and cucumber.
Beautiful day – good time for a walk. Best of all we came upon friends from Gateway to Cape Cod (Michael and Suzanne). Wonderful catching up. They’re lots more active than we have been – bicycle riding many miles on the McDade Trail. Tomorrow they’re going white water rafting.
We finished off our evening with TV of course.
