Working without Connectivity

I went through connectivity withdrawal this weekend. The family headed out to Sunriver, Oregon and the cabin which we stayed in didn't have wireless access. The truth is that it was not entirely without, but it teased just enough to allow a page load or an email opened, and then nothing.

There is a sentiment that when you are on vacation you should disconnect. I don't believe that. I want contact information for the white water rafting company, a list of restaurants in the area that serve Mexican food, a place to upload photos for family to see and my news on demand.

I did love the bike riding though and even floated the river in less than warm weather.

Next time you're in the area, pop me a note. I work for a couple of companies in Sunriver that have WiFi (I'm not going to plug them, as I'm not a spammer) in a ton of their rental homes, and can hook you up with all the various places around here that offer free WiFi.

But I agree: I want to be connected when I travel, as it's far easier to look stuff up that way then to ask the sometimes clueless front desk folks.

Absolutely I will. Next time I am down for a long stay will be August and connection will be a must.
