Fear not, we’ll keep in touch!
One of our loyal readers sent me a private message to say that he was worried about us. When I inquired why, he said that with our hinting that we might head west this season, and the fact that he has heard internet access is much more difficult to acquire that direction, we might be unable to keep up with our pretty-consistent daily posting schedule. I told him to fear not, that we’d explore alternative solutions before it came to that.
One such solution for connectivity is of course Sat. Phones. Just as cel phones have dropped from their original selling price of several thousand dollars 20 years ago to almost giveaways these days, Sat. Phones and their associated charges have come down quite a bit as well. I remember bookmarking the Inmarsat IsatPhone Pro Satellite Phone before we set off, thinking that it might be a good addition to our kit, especially if they could provide a reasonable data plan to go with them.
Anyone have any insight into this technology, or alternatives, that they’d like to share?
