OK, the contrarian here. I think that free wireless access in state parks is brilliant. Granted, the idea that this allows for instant blogging is a little silly. But consider my situation: I'm going on a personal writer's retreat next week, and internet access is important to me. My novel is set in 1925, and I spent a fair amount of time on the internet determining whether a) Nehi orange soda was available in 1925 (it was) and b) how much a bottle would cost (a nickel, I think). Now, I could go in the woods and write, and perhaps be more productive because I could not obsessively check for blog updates, but I really needed that information. So, if only for me, do not scorn wireless access in the wilderness!


Yep, I guess you represent a third category - people who go to the woods to work. I would imagine that folks who actually work at these parks full time finally feel like they have jumped into the 21st century, which is cool. Yay for historical fact-finding!

This week in local eating

  • 6.4.10: From our garden, we're eating chard, greens, radishes, strawberries, and heaps of herbs. At the farmer's market we're buying the usual: eggs and lots of goat cheese.
