Getting settled in

We are almost settled in here in Mississippi at Cypress Hill RV Park for the time being. We have not decided how long we are going to stay in this location so it’s just a month to month thing for us for now.

Finding a Doctor has been the most troublesome obstacle we have encountered thus far. Due to the pain medication we are on these doctors want us to see a pain specialist. Their fear is not weather we need the pain medication or not but rather fear of the DEA for them issuing such medications. The one doctor we found so far insisted we take a urine test to verify that the level of medication issued is in our systems and that we are not selling our pain medications on the black market.

Although we had a few problems with our MH on the trip over from New Mexico, we have not had to do any repairs since we parked it here. The sites are large for such a small RV park. Each of the back in sites have concrete patios and there is plenty of room to park a vehicle between the patio and the next RV site. 

Amenities  do not include cable TV. The WiFi is untrusting as it is always getting knocked off line and requires the park manager to go to the center of the park and flip a switch to reset the WiFi . When we are able to connect the strength is “very low” usually one bar. This make surfing the internet a real pain. We are looking into purchasing our own WiFi or MiFi system as well as satellite TV system. This will depend on us making up our minds as to how long we can live without these amenities.

That is nuts James..you just can't take your script to a pharmacy and have it filled for your pain meds?? Just another thing to add to my already growing list of 'things to do' before we take off...I think my dr..here will be cooperative and fill me up for 6 mos at a time...hopefully..have enjoyed your blog...how calm you both handled the problems so far...I need to learn to "be like that"...I tend to panic...love your rig..and the computer setup is awesome...see you some night in RV chat!!!

I, too, love your layout. With such good office space, how can you live without good connections? That would drive me crazy.
