Kids, Pets & Relatives / Re: Security camera and pets

We use a Summer Infant In View Digital Video Monitor.  It is not Bluetooth, it has a camera that sends a signal to a monitor.  If it was Bluetooth we would be able to view it on our phones.  There are models like that, just at a higher price.  Our model claims to have a 600' range.  Being outside, the wind and trees can affect that range.  I have found that we can usually go 2 maybe 3 sites over and still get a signal.

I just booked site C45 at French Creek for November 10-12.  Just a buddy from work, no wife or kid 8).  If anyone wants to join there are plenty of sites available in the c loop. (A twig and berries Nally perhaps?) ;D

 :o No MANIvan for this guy.  Jenny actually dislikes them more than me.  I get their function, but my truck can handle just about as many people, comfortably, store stuff in the bed, and still tow the camper.
Back to your original question.  In my non-mechanic opinion, the sport shift has to do with required fuel economy standards causing the low horse power cars and automatic transmissions having 7, 8, or more gears.  High RPM is just wasting fuel.  The sport shift allows you to bypass this, while the automaker hits their fuel standard requirements.

I don't use the function very often.  I really only use it at intersections where I don't have all the time in the world because of on coming traffic.  Once through the intersection and up to speed, I'll shift back to auto and allow the car to do the work.  The only other times I'll shift is when I'm at a red light on the highway (route 100) and want to pretend like I have a race car  8)  Once up to speed, back to auto and the reality that I drive a 4 door family sedan  :'(

I only use the sport shift option in my truck in snowy conditions to keep the truck from gaining too much speed, much like you do while towing.  In my F150, the tow/haul mode downshifts so quickly I don't need to.  Now, in my very underpowered Kia Forte (4 cyl), I use the sport shift anytime I want to hold 1st gear and actually get the car moving.  Otherwise, it shifts from 1st so quickly it cannot produce any rpm/horsepower.
