Appreciation

My wife and I are taking off on Friday for a six-month tour of California and the southwestern states of the USA in our RV. The trip will include many national and state parks where internet access is as yet unknown. It will, hopefully, be a glorious trip after which we will fly from Texas to NJ to pick up our SLK and drive back to Texas. Isn't life grand!

Meanwhile, I will have very limited access to all of you
[:(] and so this might be my last chance to thank you all for all the great info, pics, guidance and comradeship. It's been a great ride and I look forward to more whenever it's possible.

Airports and malls usually will have hotspots, along with universities.

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

Hey Pal, wake up in 21-st Century.
In those days most of the parks have Wi-Fi service, or you can use cell-phone.
Go to RV.net forum technology section for more info.
Have a GREAT vacation. I am sure you will.

RE: Appreciation

Thanks for all the good wishes and tips about wi-fi. I'll find a way to be in touch. It will just have to wait 'til I'm close to civilization. Meanwhile, it actually feels good to be unreachable some of the time. It's called "retirement". [:D]

RE: Appreciation

Do a little search before you leave for wi-fi directories on your route. I know many of the parks in Texas now have wi-fi. Enjoy your trip, it sounds like it'll be a blast.

Lots of coffee houses not named Starbucks have free wi-fi, too. :)

I'm about to do a road trip from Austin to Atlanta in either my 560SEL or the Z3 depending on the weather. I need a new CCU in the Benz and don't have time to swap it before I go so if it's hot, it'll be the Z3. Either way, I'll enjoy the trip.
