Friday, August 17, 2018 - Red River Exhibition Park, Winnipeg, Manitoba, Day 3, 0 Miles, 1,571.6 Miles for the Trip

Another day, another day talking with Verizon. At least this time it was actual talking with someone that wasn't reading answers from a script. I discovered that my "Beyond Unlimited" (how can you be beyond unlimited?) plan, that on paper offers the same coverage and data limits in Canada as it does in the US actually doesn't. Although two different help chat individuals told me to ignore the "You have used your .5GB of data, and if you want .5GB more, pay $5.00" message that arrived on my Jetpack. There really is a .5GB per day limit, even with the beyond plan for each device on the plan when in Canada or Mexico. The interesting thing about the pay more message is it tells you to say yes if you want to buy the additional data. The Jetpack has 3 buttons in the message window - "up" "down" and "delete", none of which seem to say yes...

Tony, the most knowledgeable Verizon help desk individual I talked with said this was the first time he had a Jetpack user ask how to buy more time & he tried a number of things, none of which worked. We found solutions for the iPad & iPhone, but not the Jetpack. So, I am now posting some of the pages with the iPhone, some with the Jetpack, and the rest with the iPad, using tethering on the phone & iPad. Each has a .5GB daily limit, so I can actually put the pages out, but it is a bit of a PIA.

Anyway, enough griping. It was a cool night, getting down to 50°F, but after throwing on a blanket at 4:00AM, I was comfortable. The cold morning was great since I planned to bake a blueberry pie & the oven heats up the trailer. Finished the pie around 10:00, then wandered around taking more photos. After that it was back to the trailer to relax, and wait for the Beef on a Bun dinner. Of course I took photos of that as well. Both groups are added to the Boler 50th Anniversary page. Scroll down to Friday for a link to scrollable photos.

Dinner was the Beef on a Bun with blueberry pie for dessert.
