No Wi-Fi?

I just got home from Lake Ouachita near Hot Springs, Arkansas, actually it is in between Mt. Ida, AR and Hot Springs.  Since I do not have an air card for my pc I rely on internet service at the hotels or campgrounds I stay at.  I stayed at the Colonial Inn and grocery in Mt. Ida this week, it was a simple place, neat, clean and super nice people.  Only one issue...no Wi-Fi, For several days I was lost, and by the end of the week I was wishing they had no cell phone service also.  I had forgotten how nice it was to just go fishing, come home, eat supper, go to bed.  I definitely got to go back to a simpler time.  The only restaurant within 40 minutes closed at 8 pm, it was at the Shangra-La resort.  They had the best home-made pie and sweet tea you've ever had.  Most evenings after we came off the lake, we ate supper sat around for a short while and then went to bed, by 9 pm at the latest, definitely it was a simpler place.  I'll post some info about the tournament later.
God Bless,
Duke

Just this last week 1/2 I have had limited internet...and I mean very LIMITED! OUCH!!! Aahhh it's nice to have it back now. I am in a hotel now in Redding for the WCB Lake Shasta tourney and I love having internet again. LOL

I look forward to hearing how your tourney went.
