3 weeks, 2 days, 7 hours, 38 minutes
That is how long I have been without a reliable, in-house, Internet connection! A lifetime, it seems!
Nope - I haven’t been incarcerated. I think inmates probably have better access to the Internet than I have had!
Nope - I didn’t go summer in Antarctica. But, even there, I am sure scientists and personnel living there have access to the Internet.
Nope - I haven’t been at the Space Station, and even there I am sure they are ‘connected’.
I have simply been out on our RV, in campgrounds that did not have connectivity. Oh sure, I had the occasional visit to a hot spot - but sometimes Mr. Dreamy just didn’t want to relax at Starbucks for the time it would take for me to read blogs, leave comments and post my own updates. Geesh... he just doesn’t understand!
So what does one do when there is no Internet?
It is amazing how much more time I had! I would bet you all know that! I think we all spend more time than we sometimes care to admit writing and tweaking posts, uploading pictures or finding other illustrations and responding to comments. Then, there are the hours we can spend reading other blogs and responding to our blog friends’ posts. Oh, so back to my original question.... what does one do?
Here are a few examples of how I filled my extra hours!
I am still not home... but we have turned the RV in that direction. The fact that my house had 12” of snow this weekend is not exactly inviting!
I can’t promise that I will be back to daily posting. Nor can I promise to visit all of your blogs, like I’d like to. But, maybe I’ll have more opportunity than I have had in the past few weeks... and eventually I will be home with my very own high speed wireless router and Internet access!!
I read an article about what long term RV travelers miss about home. One person missed long, luxurious showers. Another commented about having only one car to share between two folks. A third person missed their own washing machine and dryer. No one commented about missing a decent Internet connection!
I can’t wait to
hear read what has been going on in your lives and I look forward to telling you about some of the things I have seen and done.... when I finally get a good connection to my world!
