For some time, I've been wanting to have internet access at camp. But there's been no reasonable way to get it. Cable doesn't deliver out here in the hills, satellite is hideously expensive, and the same goes for offerings from phone carriers. Cheapest I found was $50/month with a 24 month contract. I only need it for three months a year, so that works out to about $200/month to read my email.

Then I got a good pointer from John (aka "Fearless Leader", aka "Evil Landlord who won't let me yodel at 2am"). He told me about a hotspot sold by Walmart. The hardware hotspot itself is $80, and you can buy 1.5 GB of data for $25, and it doesn't expire. So next year I should still be using data from that $25 I spent a few days ago.

Do we get reception at camp? I don't know about the entire campground, but I'm at camp now posting from my deck.
