Walks and Computer

It was a much nicer day today than it has been for the last two days. The sun came out and stayed out. The campground here at Lake Lavon, East Fork Park (COE recreation area) is still pretty soggy but the wind stopped blowing and the rain quit.
Posey and John stopped over and we decided to go for a nice walk around the campground.They have a lot of experience in this area and in South Texas, so Pam and wanted to pick their brain a bit. They offered some good advice for our trip to Progreso, TX -- our next destination.

For a good part of the day I did some reconfiguring on my laptop. I reinstalled some software, downloaded drivers for my printer, and backed up my data again.Last week after my computer crashed, I was able to have a computer store back up the data off my laptop. I have two external hard drives, so I copied the backed up data onto my second one.

It took a while, but I am more comfortable knowing I have the data in three places: my laptop and each of my two external hard drives.

Later we ran some errands and then went over to Kelly's place. I had some time to take my buddy Ed (her dog) for a long walk.
We have enjoyed the last five months with Ed on our travels but it is time for him to settle down in Kelly's stix and bricks. We'll see him again when we return during the week of Thanksgiving.

We played some ping pong at Kelly's before we returned to the campground.

That's it for this edition of the Roadrunner Chronicles. We'll be posting our next one from Fort Sam Houston outside of San Antonio. Thanks for checking in.

  3. Looks like you're still keeping very busy, Randy! That's great! Good idea on backing up your data, I don't know how many times I've asked friends the question "do you have a backup", only to be told "uh, no"! Did your "crashed" laptop ever get repaired?

  4. Progresso, OH BOY! Time to get some Christmas shopping done. :) We used to go there around Thanksgiving every year to do a little shopping for our family up north. They always loved getting something from Mexico.

    Have a great time ! Connie (rodnreal)
