Yup, we have the same thing happening!! Went from 10 gig to 18 this month!! Same as OP, we do not stream, watch YouTube etc. Verizon has no idea. We have also done everything we can think of. Our plan said, we used 2 gigs at 9pm ish, we were in bed.
And 'we' used another gig a few days later but we had moved 500 miles by then, so we don't think we were hacked because of distance??
Been using Verizon and mifi for 6 yrs and we haven't changed our habits. I go to library to post photos or update things.
And you have camped other waterfront places and NOT had Mosquitos, bugs? Did this last all night or just sunset?
Usually if there is a breeze, it helps with bugs but otherwise it seems it comes with the territory.
Last year, at 7800' elevation on a lake, sunset had bugs, later it was fine!
We are working at Cape Cod Canal, Ma with COE. We're told we'd have to leave when gov shuts down, but next day, they 'found' funds. Hopefully enough to last til closing day of Oct 14.
Will be back next year.
When we bought our Class A in 2008, we had the 2nd couch taken out to buy 'euro' type chairs with ottoman. Never got to it and in 2009 went to Alaska. After filling the 'downstairs' freezer with salmon, went to a Lowes and bought a 7 cubic fy freezer that is where old couch was. Came home with @300 lbs of salmon, halibut, clams etc.
Now it serves us well as we boon dock or are away from stores quite a bit!
Sink is large on 1 side, veggie sink on other. I wash dishes, but there is ONLY 2 of us!!? Use paper if lazy, or if water hooks not available.
Sometimes I miss our beautiful house,(sold it all in 2007 to get ready for this) but then I wake up in some beautiful place and all is well!
This is a beautiful and wonderful country, enjoy it.
We are with Corps of Engineers for our 1st time. Working as 'independent contractor' with pay and free site. We're to stay until Oct 14 then site is available for 1 week after that.
We were told with shutdown we would have 24-48 hrs to leave which puts us in a spot to find new place to go.
The next day, they 'found'' some funds and so far, we are ok til Oct 14...
We are on Cape Cod Canal and will do it next year too.
