Ever since I moved to Yuma the Internet on my Verizon unlimited Jetpack hotspot has been great, usually around 8 or 9 Mbps download and 14 or 15 Mbps upload day and night. When I was in Quartzsite my speeds were way below that and at night almost unusable. I'm more sure now that Quartzsite simply does not have enough bandwidth for the amount of people that are there in the winter using the Internet.
The weather has been great ever since I got to Yuma. Mid 70s in the daytime 50s at night, sunny blue skies, and my batteries fully charged before lunch. Life is good.
There's some sightseeing to be done in Yuma but my busy schedule [ relaxing ] has prevented me from driving downtown and seeing what's going on. But Sunday morning, when the traffic should be light, might be a good time to mosey on down to the city center and see if there's some old buildings to take a few snapshots of.
I believe Yuma's history predates the Civil War but since they kept building the town out of adobe bricks right next to the Colorado River, every time the river flooded it would wipe the place out and the bricks would turn back into mud. But apparently the college-educated city planner who by chance just happened to own the largest adobe brick factory in the county, would build it right back where it was at the water's edge. The town struggled to survive but the city planner became very wealthy selling adobe bricks and lifejackets.
It recently occurred to me that the Wi-Fi antenna and booster that I normally use to pull in local Wi-Fi signals has become all but useless. It used to be very handy for pulling in weak signals especially in some RV parks where the signal was pitiful at best, but now that I have the jetpack unlimited hotspot I no longer need any other Wi-Fi. Between the 20 gigs of hotspot data on my cell phone, and unlimited hotspot data on the jetpack I can't think of a reason I would need to tap into local Wi-Fi. So my Wi-Fi antennas days may be numbered.
