Free Internet Access for the Frugal Traveler @ the Library
The Frugal Traveler: How to get out of Dodge in 20 minutes or less. (Chicago Tribune, 8/23/2011)
Excerpt: Communication: We have a saying at our house. Com is king. When getting out of Dodge in a hurry, communication systems are critical. That's why we always have our cell phone and laptop computers on hand, along with insurance information. When a flood destroyed our lake house in Maine, we were on the road and had contacted our insurance company in less than 30 minutes. For the next few months, our daily work was accomplished at public libraries and rest areas with free Internet access. Because communication access didn't suffer, we were able to serve freelance clients without missing a beat. Or a deadline.
