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!

Labor Day weekend may mark the end of the traditional summer camping season, but for the growing numbers of campgrounds that offer Halloween-themed activities, their busiest season just beginning.

“We’re just now getting into our busiest time of the year,” said Dana Gabriel, co-owner of the Jellystone Park Camp-Resort in Swansea, S.C., adding that her park offers five consecutive Halloween-themed weekends that include carnival games as well as costume contests for adults, children and pets; campsite decorating contests; and trick or treating.

Halloween-themed activities have gotten to be so popular, Gabriel said, that the park ratchets up the scariness, with “no scare” Halloween events on the last weekend of September and first weekend of October, followed by three full-on scary weekends for older children and adults that also include a haunted house, which Gabriel and her family created out of an old barn.

“We’re already booked for the last three weekends of October,” Gabriel said.

“Across the country, growing numbers of campgrounds now offer Halloween-themed weekend activities in September and October,” said Paul Bambei, president and CEO of the National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds in Denver, Colo.

Parks offering Halloween-themed activities include independently owned and operated family campgrounds as well as parks affiliated with the Jellystone Park Camp-Resort Kampgrounds of America (KOA) chains.

In fact, most Jellystone Parks now offer Halloween themed activities, while more than a third of KOA’s nearly 500 campgrounds offer Halloween themed activities, according to representatives of both campground networks.

Bambei said Halloween themed activities that typically include campsite decorating and costume contests as well as trick or treating and, in some cases, haunted houses and spooky nighttime walks in the forest.

Marjorie Gibson, a manager at Shenandoah Valley Campground in Verona, Va., said the popularity of Halloween-themed weekends has increased in recent years. “We’ve had to expand the number of nights we offer these activities because we’ve had so many people on our waiting list,” she said, adding that some Halloween enthusiasts book their campsites a year in advance.
