Read Member F470953 GAIL RUSSELL's Review of the Tech Connect+ Sprint MIFI Plan Below:

Signed up for FMCA Tech Connect+ and taking advantage of the Sprint Unlimited Hotspot Plan

I would say I started with Hotspot Authorization at 11:30AM, it is now 8PM and my Hotspot Battery is at 32%.

I am very pleased with both the Franklin R-910 Hotspot and the Sprint unlimited data plan. Everything is working flawlessly. I am in a rural area, 30 miles from the nearest city (Buffalo, NY) and I have had enough signal strength to do everything I wanted to do on my computers & tablets and ereaders, fast & flawlessly.

I found the Hotspot intuitive to use and easy to operate. I even liked the way it felt with its rubber armour coating! After 8-1/2 hours of continuous running, the Hotspot feels cool to the touch all over. If I had to tell one Hotspot fault, it would be the display screen font type is very small, making it hard to read.

Tomorrow I will play around with more of my WiFi capable devices and let you know what I think. The unlimited data plan is just great to have! No more running to public hotspots for me like when my old data plan was getting near its limit. I am in Computer Nerd Heaven!

The Sooters are selling their house and getting ready to travel full-time in their motorhome. Their first full-timing destination: Alaska.

FMCA members Leary and Sandra SooterFMCA membership number:
F408079 (we joined in 2009)

Our current motorhome:
2009 Four Winds Hurricane 31H 33 feet

Three words that best describe our motorhome:
Comfortable, Fun, Relaxing

The best thing about our motorhome:
When we leave home on a trip we can take a part of it with us.

Other motorhomes we’ve owned:
This is our first.

We decided to buy a motorhome because:
When we take a trip we can be comfortable in surroundings we have chosen and created.

Our occupations:
Leary: I retired in 2000 from Columbia Healthcare (23 years as a laboratory director, 12 years in hospital information systems and financial operations). Since that time I have worked part-time for Wal-Mart. Sandra says it keeps me off the streets and out of trouble. Sandra works at Cracker Barrel retail store.

Children, grandchildren:
We have one son who will retire in May as a chief petty officer after 21 years in the U.S. Navy. He is married to a wonderful girl who is an X-ray tech at Fort Hood. They have two boys – 14 and 17 years of age – who are our pride and joy.

How often we go motorhoming:
Most of our travel currently consists of short weekend (two days) and long weekend (four days) trips, but as soon as our home sells we will be full-timing. Usually we are at home working on projects, at our jobs or attending our grandsons’ football and baseball games.

Our favorite motorhoming destinations:
All in Texas: Inks Lake State Park, Davis Mountains State Park and Skyline Ranch RV Park.

Our all-time favorite motorhome trip:
Inks Lake State Park – the weather was perfect and the fishing was fantastic.

Our dream motorhome trip:
Alaska absolutely has to be our dream. We have recently put our home up for sale and when it sells, Alaska will be our first full-timing trip.

Our perfect day of motorhome travel:
Any day traveling in our motorhome is a perfect day.

Our worst motorhoming experience:
We have not had a bad experience to date, but we have only had our motorhome one year in January, so I am sure we will have some problem in the future.

Our motorhoming pet peeve:
Drivers who simply must pass you and then immediately slow down to turn.

Skyline Ranch RV Park in Bandera, Texas, is one of the Sooters' favorite places to camp in their motorhome.The best alteration we’ve made to our motorhome:
Sandra decorating the interior to personalize and make it our “home away from home.”

If we could change one thing about our motorhome, it would be:
Remove all of the carpet and have ceramic tile throughout.

Something about motorhoming that we know now but did NOT know when we started:
Driving and maneuvering a motorhome is not as challenging as we thought.

When driving a motorhome, the most important thing to remember is:
Pay attention to what you are doing and the road ahead.

Our advice for other motorhome owners:
Slow down, save fuel and enjoy the sights from those wonderful front seats as you travel down the highway.

Our hobbies:
Leary: fly-fishing, hunting, woodworking and barbecuing. Sandra: traveling and seeing all this beautiful country has to offer.

Favorite restaurant:
Any place with authentic Mexican food.

A celebrity we admire:
Denzel Washington

Something others would be surprised to know about us:
Sandra has put up with me for almost 44 years.

If we were awarded a shopping spree at the store of our choice, the store we’d choose:
Camping World

Favorite campground:
South Llano River State Park in Junction, Texas

When motorhomers visit our state or hometown, they should be sure to see:
Davis Mountains State park (McDonald Observatory), South Llano River State Park (fly-fishing), the drive from Rocksprings, Texas, to Camp Wood, Texas (the drive looks almost like parts of Colorado).

Items that we always keep in our motorhome’s refrigerator while traveling:
Cheese, mayo, yellow and zucchini squash for grilling, ribeye steak for grilling, hamburger for grilling. As you might suspect, I (Leary) enjoy my grill.

What’s the best motorhoming advice you’ve ever received:
Slow down, take your time and enjoy the sights.

Our advice to new motorhomers:
Don’t be afraid to try something new. If you are unsure of something just ask someone – the motorhoming community is a friendly group overall and eager to help newcomers.

Behind our motorhome, we tow:
A 2005 Jeep Liberty Renegade 4X4 using a Roadmaster Falcon 2 towbar and Brake Buddy Vantage system.

When we’re online, Web sites we like to visit:
FMCA.com, BassPro, Cabelas

A technical or travel tip we’d like to share with other motorhome owners:
Always make time to maintain your coach according to manufacturer guidelines.

We joined FMCA because:
We wanted to be a part of an organization dedicated to motorhome owners. And, to meet new friends across the country.

FMCA chapters that we belong to:
None. With Sandra’s work schedule right now it is almost impossible to attend rallies, etc. and really get involved in a chapter.
