    @Watersail- that may be part of the problem.  My first time camping with CIs we were up near Grand Marais, MN and it rained and was humid the whole time.  My processors had to go through two dry-box cycles when I got home.

    @Watersail if you're camping with your car (that is, not backpacking so you can afford to bring big things) there are portable solar panels that are the bee's knees.  We have one that keeps the lights in our camper running (we replaced them with LEDs so they don't draw a lot of current) and keep our phones, tablets and CIs charged.

    @Jewel hm, I wonder if there's nail polish that's sort of a greying dishwater brown?

    I made two YouTube videos showing how to use Google Meet (free, works on all devices) for video meetings with free live captioning. One video shows using Google Meet on computers.  The other video shows using Google Meet on tablets.  The videos are captioned.

    @Mary Beth
    I have the old hairclip. That's what I painted with regular nail polish. I put two coats on it. The polish isn't stripping off. It has only been a few weeks now. @Mary Featherston kindly sent me a tether recently and told me to use thread to attach it to the old hairclip. Since that worked wonderfully I won't be buying any tether with an alligator clip. I would just buy the tethers and keep using my old hairclip.

    Good to hear, @Jewel!  I did go look up the path of the hurricane it looked as though you got off fairly lightly this time.

    Sorry that I was unable to join today. I woke up late and then I had a jam-packed day.
    We weren't affected by the hurricane. Just a lot of rain at times.

    @Mary Featherston One day. The Prado is one of many on my list to get round to seeing.
    The audiologist normally comes down to the coast here from Madrid once a month apparently. 
    ( To do everyone in one go I think).
    Due to the pandemic, might at a push, see him October/November time for my next mapping. Otherwise if not then maybe next year.

    Mary Featherston reacted to Steven Ulven in day after surgery turn on   
    I went to the activation this afternoon and it went really well.  The sound for the new side seems louder and more tinny than my old one but I understand that will improve.  The plus is I am able to understand speech with just the new side.  I am thrilled with that.  Initially my Audi was going to keep the processor off the ear but the incision does not hurt at all so I am trying it on the ear for now. Thanks for all the well wishes.  No to go through my new box of goodies.😀

    I've been cutting my own hair since March. First two times my wife helped, but now I have gotten used to it and do it myself. I've been so dissatisfied withe the stylists I've tried here in NoVA since moving last fall, these have turned out to be my best haircuts in a long time.

    @Megan L. yes.  I did have to take an attitude the first time that even if he dorked it up, the thing about hair is that it grows back.  But he didn't do too badly.  There were little bits sticking out that I had to fix with a small scissor in the bathroom but the second time was much better.

    Mary Featherston got a reaction from Salik in When and where do you remove Rondo 2 for safety concern.   
    No, I don't think any processors float.  I was actually really scared when we went jet-skiing, but then I realized that they're very stable and I  probably wouldn't even get wet - and I didn't. 
    So my main concern was the headband (it was actually a bandana).  If it scares you and you can manage without your processor, that may be better for you.

    @Salik No, I don't imagine the tethers will work with waterwear.  When I went Jet-skiing last year I wore waterwear and tied a scarf around my head to secure the processors (I wore my Sonnets, not Rondo, but I think you could so something similar).  I was nervous as heck but it ended up working well.

    @Nikki, you're having in-person meetings?  Wow.  We don't, anymore.  Everything's on MS Teams, which is GREAT for me because 1) it forced me to face my fear of the telephone, and 2) it sounds really clear with my neckloop.  It's been far, far better than I expected.

    I saw that, Rondo 3 - looks great!  But I'm three years from an upgrade and I'm sure by then there will be other options.

    @Mary Beth here you go.  I think it's actually just one part, but you can see it's the thing you press to remove the rechargeable battery holder.  The sunset CI on the left is all black inside and the Stonehenge one on the right has a little white bit up where the batter holder connects to the processor.
