New cell phone (again)

Samsung Galaxy Prime cell phoneSigh.  I dropped my Windows Phone and killed it the other day.  In the last year I have wrecked three phones and a tablet.  Dad and Mom are about to lose it.  I think the vein on his head is still pulsating.  That’s not good.  Not only that but I just paid back dad this week for the phone I broke.

I am working but I need to stop breaking my phones. 

Mom moved from Bell Mobility to Fido because she gets more data for less money and upgraded from her Samsung Galaxy Prime to a Motorola Moto G4 Plus.  She told me that I could buy her phone for $50.  She had a white case for it and I bought a new charcoal case for $30.  We set up both her phone and my phone this morning.

The good news is that while doing it, Samsung sent a big Android update which updated the phone.  It’s not a gaming phone which is fine by me.  I need it to text, check email, and keep in contact with work, Jordon, Wendy, and Oliver.  It also plays Spotify well.

Now I just need to stop dropping devices.

Winnebago's Concept Adventure Vehicle

From NewAtlas

Winnebago's Concept Adventure Vehicle is ready to rough it

Winnebago may still be synonymous with large Class A and Class C motorhomes that tour via highway and camp in paved lots with full hookups, but the company is determined to push its way onto the dirt and rock. It has been trying to woo people like the outdoor-crazy crowd at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market with its the Era 4x4 and all-new Concept Adventure Vehicle, which was unveiled at the 2016 Summer Market last week and shows the possibility of an off-grid-capable 4x4 Winnebago optimized for boundless adventure.

Not many of us can afford this (it starts at about $110k in US dollars) but I think all of us want one.  It looks spectacular.

Moraine Lake

On our last full day in Banff National Park, Dad took us to Moraine Lake where we hiked around the iconic lake.  It was a great hike and a lot of fun.
