For the moment I am living at a campground near the former site of the State park near Myrtle Beach South Carolina. They might not have the most luxurious accommodations, but it is very very cheap and I am down here to make money rather than to spend it. Of course I have the satellite dish on the roof of my camper trailer. You always have the dish network near you and I am not having any trouble with the reception even though the signal is weak. I have a pretty shady spot and so the dish itself is pointed up into the trees. I am sure that when the right type of clouds get over the top of me it will be very difficult to get a signal. There is some sort of cloud which seems to reflect the signal and even if you have perfect signal strength there can be really severe storms that block out the signal. I guess that is because there is so much rain in the air and then you have the wind.

Of course there is always some work down here for people who can fix homes up. All of the houses on are on the ocean here and so they are constantly exposed to salt air, winds and hard rain blowing in off the Atlantic Ocean. The other day I had to pull over on the highway because it was impossible to see where I was going. The rain was coming straight at me so hard that it was impossible for the windshield wipers to keep up with it. It was just about like driving into a fire hose rather than a storm. That sort of storm is not all that uncommon here, back in the foothills the terrain will block some of the weather, here there is nothing to keep it off you.
