Best laid plans eh? I figured I had this mobile blogging thing sussed. With my trusty MacBook and PDA combo I am good for network, wifi, bluetooth, 3G/GPRS/UMTS. I didn’t count on rural Manitoba.
Lesson learned, when someone tells you there will be internet access double and triple check. I couldn’t even get cell phone connection, let alone broadband. That was the longest break from the internet I have had in ten years, perhaps longer.
I can pretty much understand not getting online north of Winnipeg but I wasn’t prepared for having no access in Toronto. On the good side I did get to meet Jeremy, Gary and Mark from b5media while I was there.
Ah well, normal service will resume shortly after I get some sleep. I just arrived in my hotel in Calgary where thankfully the beds are soft, the breakfasts are huge and the internet connection is fast and free!
