Thank You To Those That Support Small Business

Many people know me from my twenty year plus IT career and the last almost 9 years at VMware.  That has provided a lot of connections throughout the community for sure.  What many people may not know is that I have spent a great many nights and weekends help my wife Julie build her company from something that started as ...

Camp Freightliner Review

I had the chance this week to attend what is known as Camp Freightliner down in Gaffney, SC.  I really was not sure what to expect, what I was going to learn or even what the heck this was.  I saw it online after I bought the 2016 Tiffin Allegro RED which is built on a Freightliner chassis.  I decided ...

What To Do When Your Water Utility Tries To Rob You

For the last 2 years I have been back on city water after moving from NH to TN and I cannot say how much I miss my well water for the simple reason the local water company Glen Hills Utility District has basically robbed me more than once and I have data to prove it.  Let’s start from the beginning ...

Personal Thoughts on the VCDX Troubleshooting Removal

Breath in…..breath out….okay now that we have all taken a breath I will start.  As I mentioned on twitter there is a lot of good changes coming to the VCDX program.  Like last year many of these changes are being done rapid fire in Q4 so we can institute them in 2016.  That being said I wanted to take a ...

How To Use The 2016 Tiffin Allegro RED Solar Pre-Wiring

Well, let me start by saying that one would think this is an easy thing to deal with, but as it turns out it’s not quite that obvious.  When we bought our new 2016 Tiffin Allegro RED we had it pre-wired for solar.  We then asked the dealer to install some solar to just make use of the pre-wiring, nothing ...

How To Connect Your RV To You Home Propane Tank

Let me first state that the bulk of this MUST be done by a licensed propane company.  The connection to your RV is easy enough once you get a line put in the ground, but the point of this post is to explain what took me about a month to figure out.  This was finding the right hoses and connections ...

How to Use a Winegard Dome With DISH Network

Julie and I have had our RV now for just about a year.  One of the things that has driven me insane, and I suspect others as well is getting the proper settings on your Winegard Dome for DISH network.  What most RV dealers don’t know is there is multiple settings on the unit.  You also may need to CHANGE ...

KOA Watkins Glen – Camping Review

Well, it’s been a few weeks since I stayed at the KOA Watkins Glen/Corning location in upstate New York.  Julie and I booked this back in February right after we bought the new motor coach and decided we still wanted to go do our annual Wine Weekend.  We decided to make it over July 4th, and take the motor coach ...

Yes Man or No Man, Which Are You?

So the other day I was told something very interesting and it got me thinking.  I was told “You say NO a lot and you need to stop doing that”.  I was actually not surprised that I was told I say no a lot.  I will explain why in a minute.  I was more surprised that someone wanted me to become ...

EMC World 2014 Personal Reflection

This week I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know some of the hardest working guys on the vCloud Air operations team.  In the course of the conversations and getting to know them beyond the scope of VMware and what they do, something came out that I always find interesting.  Something I have learned in recent years is ...

Why Move To Tennessee?

Many people by now have heard that Julie and I were looking at land in Greenville, TN to start a new home build.  After a nearly combined 65 years in New Hampshire, we decided that we’ve pretty much had enough of the winters here.  That happens to most people at some point that they decide it is time to move ...

The “Haves” and The “Have Nots”

Recently I was told by someone who while they considered themselves as one of the “Have Nots”, I was living the good life as one of the “Haves”.  I was up part of the night thinking about this and it did not make sense to me.  We are all faced with life decisions, learning opportunities, and things that shape us. ...
