Just curious; would it be okay if I bring some Ranger parts/accessories to sell (providing there is anyone in attendance that is interested)? Not a huge selection, just some items I have that other members may be interested in for their trucks. If that is against event etiquette, I understand.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I believe I recall having pretty decent service with Verizon. The campground is on the eastern shore of the most eastward lake (Barkley?). So, it's not as remote as being in the LBL park. While you are exploring in the actual park, service will be spotty to non-existent.

My phone company uses T-Mobile and I didn't have any service. I have gotten a new SIM card since then. So, reception may have changed as a result. I haven't had an opportunity to test how the signal is in remote areas with the new card.

We use straight talk now, I think on Verizon towers. I think we might be ok, it's been awhile since I spent a day at LBL.
