A trip to a motocross convention, tradeshow, or contest can be a lot of fun, especially if you turn it into a long-distance trip in a caravan, stopping at popular motocross tracks along the way. That is, it can be fun while you're at the show or track. It's not so fun when you've been driving for kilometres with a very bored family kicking the backs of each other's seats only to arrive at a campground with few amenities available.
This is a great time to have something like a Satking satellite TV receiver with you. It may seem strange to drive out to a campground or caravan park and then spend time staring at a screen. But you have to realise that there will be times when you're all awake and not able to find much to do. TV can keep the peace and help you out in a couple of other situations.
You Don't Want To Be The One Uninformed Person In A Crisis
First, even if you don't plan to watch recreational TV, you may still want that satellite receiver with you so you can watch the news and stay up to date. Your phones and tablets may not have a signal if you're driving in more isolated parts of the country. You don't want to be that one person who emerges from time away to find a major crisis has happened and you have no idea what's going on. That's what happened to actor Jared Leto when he went to a no-TV, no-phone, no-Internet retreat in early 2020 only to emerge into a world that was almost fully locked down.
Even if you will have a signal when you're at tracks and those shows, if there is an emergency, you want to be able to access a signal to see what's happening. With a satellite receiver, you'll be able to keep track of emergencies and head home early if needed.
You'll Still Be Relaxing At Night
Unless TV makes you particularly agitated, you may still want it around as you relax at night. There could be times when books just aren't enough, and other family members on the trip are tired. A portable TV, a headphone jack, and a satellite receiver can be wonderful things to have at that moment.
Got Kids? You Need A Distraction
Or, maybe you're doing fine, but your kids are driving you up the wall and you need to give them something to keep their attention while you drive or try to rest. A small TV with satellite capability could be your best friend at that point.
Satellite receivers like those from Satking are wonderful to have as you travel to motocross shows and tracks. Even if you don't plan to use it, you'll have it in case you finally need it.
