I love the area around Parchers! Never stayed there but visited there when we used to camp at Four Jeffreys. Definitely go down to Bishop and the cafes etc. Hike around Lake Sabrina and North Lake. May be too early for fall colors. And it's Sa-BRINE-a, not Sa-BREEN-a. I was corrected ages ago.Edited: 29 August 2016, 00:05
Yes, the library has it, but there may be many people using it. The McDonald's on the main highway has it, and it has always worked for me. The Looney Bean coffee house has it and it's reliable, but you need to buy a cup of coffee or something to get the password. I always buy something to drink there.
Great info, I've written everything down. We're staying at Parchers to acclimatize for Whitney. Lake Sabrina seems to only be 17 minutes from Parchers, so I'm guessing we can meander by and check it out. Thanks for the suggestion.
Am I the only person that thinks it is a bad idea to pay bills/do money management on non secure public wifi???
Maybe I am just old fashioned and paranoid but I'd make other arrangements to pay bills.
Good point Riff. I didn't see that. You are correct that those wifi are not secure.
Kay - you are not paying for data coverage on your phone? Better to do that way. Public wifi networks are not secure unless you have a VPN. Crooks can steal your data over an unsecured network.Edited: 29 August 2016, 02:36
For most of my bills, the credit card information is saved in the account, so all I do is tell them to use that card. I don't enter the card info each time. Maybe you can set this up before your trip.
Yes, Lake Sabrina is well worth going up to, since you will be so close to it anyway. And North Lake as well. These places are especially beautiful in October, with the aspen and cottonwood trees in fall color. I would spend an afternoon seeing those.
In recent years the water level in Lake Sabrina has been very low, with some boats on the ground. I haven't been there yet this year, but I did read that the water level has risen this year. Still worth going to in any case since it is just a short drive away. By the way, "Sabrina" in this case is pronounced with the long I, as if rhyming with "Dinah."Edited: 03 September 2016, 18:57
