I don't know if any of you can relate to my frustration of not being connected to the internet…..most of you have fast home broadband connections.

Traveling with a broadband card is wonderful when I can connect…but times like these when I am in a location that cant receive a decent signal is tough to deal with.

So I drive to a wifi site now to upload a blog post or receive email..I cant read blogs either..pages just don't want to load up..

Our friends have no wifi at their home..they have a Verizon air card and lately they have had connection issues as well.

So…here we are in Amazingly beautiful surroundings…no internet…

Think I will go for a hike.


  1. Can total relate. Those pictures were awesome. Looks like a really peaceful place.

  2. Stunning photos Dawn.

  3. Hey Dawn I know what you mean about internet service while on the road... When it's good it is heaven and when it is bad it is @#&?*&%$#@*#.... well you get the jest of it! Great photos as always and glad you’re enjoying your trip... Have FUN & Travel Safe!

  4. Oh, those vineyard shots! Just glorious! I can only imagine how hard it is not to feel connected while on the road Dawn. Hope you had a wonderful hike. ;c)

  5. Keep taking these beautiful shots with all that color and beauty...we will need to see a lot of color and sunshine as we sit here freezing in these temps!! Do have a nice time visiting your friends and have a nice weekend!!!

  6. Beautiful pictures. We used to travel CA alot when trucking but I never got any pictures of the countryside like thoses. It's too beautiful to be sitting at a computer...I have a data card but many times on the boat I don't even bother to try getting on because it's just too nice out there.

  7. Sure is pretty N CA wine country. With wine, who needs internet? ;-)However I sympathise.

  8. Pioneer woman!

    Want me to recommend some good books while you're living in primitive conditions? :)

  9. The photos are fantastic! My sisters used to go out that way to visit my aunt and they told me about how you can be looking at the coastline one minute then the mountains in the next. Beautiful scenery.Sorry to hear about your Internet frustrations.

    Thanks Jayne..yeah its real frustrating to me not to be connected..but thats all part of this lifestyle..until something better can be developed. when i first started rving we just had to rely on dial up at rv better that it was.

    Thanks Tina..actually is pretty darn cold in Las Vegas now.

    yeah are right about it being to nice to be sitting at the computer..I usually am on the computer early morn or night..that way i have more play time.
