    Thanks for the tips on camping! I was going to take a bit of time off from work at DISH to take the family camping soon. My kids get so much energy when I tell them about the trips, so it’s understandable for them to get bored on the way to and from the grounds. My DISH Hopper DVR lets us transfer recordings to our iPad, which the kids can watch anywhere we are even if we don’t have an internet connection.
