The 3rd annual 3DD/Better Life Foundation “Ride for a Cause” took place November 17th in Tunica, MS and was a huge amount of fun. The ride (promoted by the Dixie Thunder Run) started Saturday morning at Southern Thunder Harley Davidson in South Haven, MS, and ended at the Roadhouse Casino in Tunica.

The Dixie Thunder Run is just around the corner, and if you haven’t considered this event as a way to spend your Labor Day Weekend, it’s worth a look. I have previously been on this ride, and have made sure to sign up again this year, and am bringing along some friends.

WiFi in Huntsville Area (updated)

wifi
  • WiFi has become a staple of life for most of us in the Rocket City, and an absolute necessity for many of us. For example, we could not do what we do here at HSVexplorer without generous use of free WiFi available at many locations, or our portable hotspots. We have found that some places are much better at this than others. In fact, many although offering free WiFi are so frustrating or slow as to not be worth trying.

This article will be an ongoing work where we list ease of use, ping times, download and upload speeds, and general comments for the places we visit and use WiFi. We are using Speedtest.net for all ratings, and working with the Arab server for all tests.
