Just dug my TV dongle out its two years since i used it so knew it would need retuning was very surprised connected it all to a one for all indoor boosted Ariel placed the Ariel on the bed and within 5 min had all channels tuned in at 100%,now i know they talked about increasing signal strength but have they done it yet.

We usually play stupid games on our phones, or take the campervan to a view point and watch the rain clouds come and go whilst making several cups of tea. Very Happy

We rarely take the TV unless we are going away for a long period of time....its hassle!

So we end up talking, reading (I have sooooo many books to get read and off my bookcase now I have a kindle!), playing board games, listening to music. Or, we just take ourselves out somewhere, like a museum or something indoors.

I don't mind one day in the van if its pouring rain but get a bit stir crazy if it drags on and on!

We listen to the radio and play cards have a couple of drinks, I enjoy scrabble but Johns rubbish at it ....... John wins at cards mostly but I think he cheats Twisted Evil I like to lie on my Dandy bed and listen to the rain, I find it soothing and often drift off for an hour in the afternoon ..... it's a hard life this Dandying in the rain lol!

i love the sound of rain on the dandy, it's amazing how cosy and safe you feel in the dandy listening to the rain - except when it's blowing a gale outside of course and i'm panicking that the dandy is going to fly away Shocked

with the aerial i bought i now have radio as well as TV but mostly i watch DVDs (well i say watch, i usually read a book while the dvd is on lol)
