I am currently on the road driving my father from Seattle to Mobile in his Class C motor home. This is a great lesson in how NOT to stay connected to the Internet though I’m having better luck in some places than I thought. We are currently in Desert Hot Springs, California, visiting his aunt and uncle and I found a weak Internet WIFI connection outside of their home. I’m resting the laptop on the ice chest sitting on the rack on the back of the motor home, next to the generator, barely able to stay connected for more than a few minutes at a time if the wind blows in the right direction or whatever causes it to fade out.
Still, it’s better than those pay phones with the accoustic coupler.
This has been, in the style of our travels, an adventure and I’ll have more news, tips, and advice coming at you soon. We’re debating our route back across either I-40 or I-10, both with good and bad opportunities, so stay tuned.
