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!

For instance, if you’re passing through the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas during the last two weekends of October and hear a lot of screaming, don’t panic.

You could be hearing participants in this year’s “best scream” contest, one of several Halloween-themed events taking place at Far Horizons 49er Village RV Resort in Plymouth, Calif. “Both weekends are sold out,” said Sue Trimble, office manager for the 329-site campground.

These aren’t your ordinary camping enthusiasts, mind you. The camping and RVing enthusiasts who book their sites during the last two weekends of October come with friends and family members and create their own haunted campsites.

“Sometimes groups of people will come and they’ll use two or three campsites and invite everyone in the campground to come in and visit their haunted RVs,” Trimble said.

The campground also invites drama students from neighboring Amador High School to come over and read scary stories to the younger campers.

Sound extreme?

“You’d be surprised to know what campground operators are doing at this time of year,” said Linda Profaizer, president and CEO of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds.

“Instead of letting Labor Day be their last hurrah, many campground owners have discovered that they can keep having busy weekends right on through September and October, particularly if they have Halloween-oriented activities.”

Campgrounds affiliated with Kampgrounds of America (KOA) and Jellystone Park Camp-Resorts have been offering Halloween activities for years. But independently owned and operated campgrounds are also increasingly getting into the act.

“October is our busiest month,” said Dana Gabriel, co-owner of the Jellystone Park in Swansea, S.C.

The last three weekends in October, Gabriel said, are when the park gets really scary, with a Darkwood Plantation. Guests start their adventure visiting a haunted plantation house. They proceed into the gardens, a cemetery and a swamp where there is a voodoo witch.

“We have a mix of static props, animatronics and 10 or 15 actors who make it a pretty scary place,” Gabriel said.

The Winston-Salem KOA in Statesville, N.C., has generated a similar following with its Midway Wicked Woods, a frightening walk in the woods. “It is very scary,” said Jocelyn Hogue, a park manager, adding that the haunted trail is open to campers as well as the general public.

Campground operators aren’t limiting themselves to Halloween-themed activities. Many also offer other activities and entertainment, such as fall harvest festivals, Western-themed weekends and Oktoberfest celebrations.

Some campgrounds also offer corn mazes, including the Jellystone Park in Sioux Falls, S.D., which offers a seven-acre corn maze, with an easy section for young children and a more difficult section for teenagers and adults.

Here is a sampling of some of the activities and special events taking place at campgrounds and RV parks and resorts across the country through the end of October:

  • American Family Campground, Godeffroy, N.Y.: This park will celebrate Oktoberfest Oct. 8 to 11 with a krautdogs over the campfire, an evening hayride and a Bavarian dinner.
  • Four Paws Kingdom, Rutherfordton, N.C.: This park will celebrate Oktoberfest Oct. 2 and 9 with German music, a party and German food, including sauerbraten, spaetzle, knockwurst, brats, kraut, red cabbage, potato salad and more.

A Mediterranean potluck is scheduled for Oct. 16 and will feature Spanish, Greek, Italian, Croatian French and other cuisines from the Mediterranean region.
  • Land-O-Pines Family Campground, Covington, La.: This park offers a wide range of activities and entertainment this fall, including “Swamp Pop” band extravaganza Sept. 24 to 26; a “Pink Party” and walk-a-thon for breast cancer awareness month Oct. 1 to 3, with activities including a walk-a-thon, pink dessert, and a pink bingo party.

  • Lazy River at Granville, Granville, Ohio: This park will host an Oktoberfest celebration on Sept. 24 with crafts, five stations of games, a DJ beer garden, and German food including brats, potato salad, apple dumplings and beer.
