We went camping this weekend. I brought my GPS, my Clie, and other toys to create a high-tech camping experience. If there were such a thing as wilderness wireless internet access, I probably would have tried to use that, too.
In the forest you can hear rain approaching before it arrives, kind of like a guest knocking at the door before entering. It reminds me of how, when sailing, you see gusts of wind approaching before they arrive. They appear as a different pattern of ripples on the water, and you see those and think, "here it comes!"
