Hot Spot

I'm at an I-5 rest stop in Washington State. That there's a Wifi Hotspot is pretty cool, but if I want to access anything outside of WA's Dept of Transportation's websites I need to fork over at least $6.75.

I guess that way taxpayers don't have to pay for me to dial in to my Google Maps.

Of course it's my own dang fault the plastic sheet from my binder blew away or whatever it did. I hope my hand drawn map works as well. I saved an image file just in case it doesn't.

We drove by way of Hwy 30 to Rainer, bridge to Longview, hoping to avoid bottlenecks. So far so good. The new Dell Ubuntu laptop is working flawlessly.
