Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Getting mobile

About a year ago, I took a risk and quit a stable job to try out some different forms of journalism. En route, I jettisoned having my own apartment, which was tough emotionally but something I now feel was a great decision.
One reason: it’s made preparing to live on the road for three months way easier. I’m not attached to much stuff beyond my running shoes, my laptop and my boyfriend, and those are all pretty mobile items. (Especially the latter, who has done most of the trip planning for this journey.)
One of the big challenges, though, was figuring out what sort of on-the-go Internet service was going to serve us effectively on this journey. After a lot of research we decided on an air card from AT&T. It took over a week to get the thing functional, but now that it’s working, I’m very pleased with it. Right at this moment, it’s enabling me to blog from one of the most remote parts of my parents’ property in the Santa Ynez foothills. My hope is that it will be similarly well behaved in our nation’s national parks.
