The Camel In Alton, NH, Joined By Two Bison — Next Door To “Camp David”.

Alton’s now famous ‘Snow Camel‘, “Roger“, is a rescue camel! He was emancipated from a farm in the Midwest that could no longer take care of him.

He has been in Alton, New Hampshire, on the farm next door to “Camp David“, on Route 28, since June 2015.

The two buffalo, that look young, are new. I first saw them about a month ago. Today was the first time I got stop and take a picture of them. I did not have my Nikon P900 super-zoom. They were a bit far from the road, there was deep snow that prevented me from getting too close and the light was against me. I know the owners and they will let me come and get some better picture.

This is mainly for the record. Yes, we now have bison as well as a camel in Alton. The bison may have something to do with “Camp David” in that the metal gates for the Camp have always featured two bison. Not sure what the story is here. Not sure what transpires at “Camp David”. It seems closed for the Winter.

Anywho … stay tuned.

If Your Fitbit Ionic Touchscreen Is Even More Unresponsive Than Normal …

If you find that the Fitbit Ionic screen does not activate when you turn your wrist or tap the screen twice, check the “Screen Wake” option. It should be on “auto“. If it is on “manual” the Ionic will act frigid.

Since, INEXPLICABLY Fitbit does not provide a screen lock option, settings like these can get accidently ‘reset’. Mine goes nuts when I am taking a shower. Very annoying. With my ex-Garmin I was able to keep the touchscreen locked.

To access the “Screen Wake” option SWIPE RIGHT from the watchface. Then you can check.

This setting makes a huge difference. So, before you take a hammer to your Fitbit Ionic check the “Screen Wake” option.
