The Day's Inn in the Wisconsin Dells (Wisconsin) region has just installed wireless connections throughout it's facility!! So after a full day of travelling... ( we left our house 12 hours ago)... I can say
HOWDY FROM WISCONSIN!!
We just drove up a small part of the road, and you would not believe how commercial this place is. Full of fast food, amusement parks and motels. Tomorrow we are taking an old-fashioned boat ride on the upper dells then heading outta town!! I have my camera... my laptop has a card reader... look for pictures from Illinois. (The Ramada there promised wifi, too).
So it's 9:30 at night.. the sun is down, and I'm sitting outside on the sundeck, surfing on my laptop... and Steve is sitting next to me playing games on his laptop. Does this make us geeky or Californians?
When we get to my MIL's house, we will have to hunt for a wireless connection or drive to the local airport (earthlink has wireless hub there)... so content will probably be spare during the week.
But we're here. And HERE the weather is pleasant and much like I left in the bay area.. maybe a bit more humid. The Quad Cities are predicted to be brutal (95 degrees and 90% humidity..) so maybe its a good thing that I won't be able to whine about it to you all.
