Wi-Fi internet service will be found at the largest, most popular campgrounds in the coming years. The places that cater primarily to RVs. Here at Total Escape we consider these luxury campgrounds. (flush toilets, showers & laundry facility kinda digs). But the new service will also be found at smaller State Park camps too. Although steep terrain & dense forest will make it nearly impossible to transmit the signals very far, todays technology's encroachment is here. Where will we draw the line?
Nature heals & inspires us in a way that is unexplainable. We should value the earth in it's most natural form & of course, respect it by not overdeveloping. Yes, many folks would like to have wireless connections, but is this in the better interest for ALL: humans, wildlife, our precious life giving vegetation, the natural earth. While I have watched my share of DVD movies on the laptop under the stars, that is not disturbing anyone else (except maybe the squirrels, who were sneaking off with the pretzles) and as usual, Total Escape Adventures primarily camps outside of developed sites. As the state of California gets more & more crowded, these kinda topics will be popping up more often. Bookmark this site, so you can find the total seclusion you seek.
As motorhome sales continue to rise & retiring baby boomers take to the open road, technology will play a major part in their nomadic lifestyles. While physical fitness & recreation plays a huge part of the camping experience, it seems odd that computers are now a part of standard travel equipment. From backpackers with GPS units to full time RVers keeping in touch with family, technology on the back roads is here to stay.
California's parks have not implemented this technology (yet), but big 'ole Texas will become the first place to provide wireless Internet service at state parks.
