Day 247, Pottstown, PA


We decided to do school in a library today, like we were doing last year, but wow, oh wow, what a difference. The library was in an old building, and we ended up in the basement children’s area in what we thought would be a quiet corner. Not quite, so we moved again. Not quite, so we decided to only stay for a couple hours and finish school later in the rig.  You can tell by their faces that it wasn’t an ideal working situation.

The library was crowded, but we could tell it was a low-income area, and the library was filling many locals needs. Isn’t that what they are for?

Nate was happy, though, because leaving early meant we had time to go to the Verizon store and get him his new iPhone.  Yes, 13 years old and has a new iPhone.  It was a free upgrade for him, or there’s no way we would have allowed it!  He’s had to deal with his old iPod never getting cellular coverage as we’ve travelled so far, so this will be nice.  Wifi has really been the hardest part of the trip.  Finding it, keeping it connected, all the RV parks that say they have it and don’t.  It’s amazing how much we rely on it.
