Congratulations to Chris, today is her last day at work. She made it. I'll still have some things left to clean up Saturday and I'll be finished. The plan at this time is to head out early Monday morning and head south on 35w until Kansas City. We will then leave the freeway and head southwest until we find New Mexico. Things will slow down then and we will see what happens.

We ended up getting the Broadband2Go MiFi Device from Virgin mobile which runs on the Sprint network. This will give us the secure internet access we want, however as I mentioned before, a good deal of our time will be spent in areas where there will not be any cell service at all. The Broadband2Go is about the size of a credit card and can support up to five devices at a time. It's a pay as you go so we only pay for what we use. Time will tell if this device will work well enough to replace our home internet provider.

Being new to the blogger thing, at least from the standpoint of creating one, I'm making this first entry as a test so I can get the feel for what is required to design, align, and keep things simple for easy updating. I've followed many RV travel bloggers over the years and have enjoyed their entries and photo's, some of them are listed on this page, but I never knew what was involved in creating and maintaining one. However, following these folks have kept our dreams of RV travel alive by following vicariously through their adventures. Many bloggers post daily detailing their activities both through text and photos. While we will try posting often we know that we will be in areas where posting will be impossible because of the lack of internet. We do not have smart phones, so all postings will be done from our laptops when wifi is available. We have been looking into getting a mobile hotspot but I'm not sold on that option yet.
