Newsletter: June 5, 2020

Hello all,

This newsletter is brought to you via Writing-On-Stone provincial park. I have a slight signal here so my SkyRoam little WAP is working enough to work on this. Out on PTO with my wife Angela, and we are experimenting with a CamperVAN  from Canadream to see if we like doing this sort of thing.

BTW, I am releasing this newsletter a bit early as I just found out that we are heading into an area where even phones won’t work.

Have a great week, and stay safe,
