Default Thank God for laptops

I'm sitting in a hotel room in Sioux Falls South Dakota for my daughters softball tournament this weekend. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have my laptop with me to get my fix of the brethren. I think my wife might be right.

I'm very very sick

Please tell me that Im not the only one out there like this.

Yea, I am trying to convince myself[and my bride] that I "need" a blackberry/blueberry/raspberry, or what ever they are today, so I can stay in touch with the brethren when we are doing our long motorcycle tours later this year. Wish me luck, She is still not fully sold on cell phones yet.

The el cheapo solution for a road trip is to go to the public library where ever you are. They all have free computer stations for public use, even in very small towns.

That being said, I always bring my laptop along when I am on the road

Not every town will let you use their internet stations. I tried in Concord, New Hampshire and was told I needed to be a resident.

Gotta love these laptops!

We carry the laptop always.
Kiddos and most lodging has Internet access now.

I stopped carrying a laptop to Disney World when I used to go there a lot.
Their room rate is so low they charge $9.95 per day for Internet access

That is CHEAP! I just returned from London. Stayed at the Heathrow Airport Hilton... access was 15 pounds per 24 hours... With the current exchange rate that is over $30! Oh well, it went on the expense report...

I don't carry a laptop, but I do usually keep my PDA with me and it has wireless abilities. The screen size and Internet browsers are a little more burdensome to use at times but it's more convenient to carry. There have been quite a few times that the wife and I have been out in town and needed to look something up. We just walk to the nearest StarBucks and log on real quick.
