If I do end up making the extended trip, I would be sorely tempted to get a MacBook Air to write on during the course of it.

My G4 iBook is creaking with age, both in terms of hardware and software, and it would be quite a block of plastic to carry around.

That being said, it might be reckless to buy a computer on top of everything else. I could just write in paper notebooks and transcribe anything of importance once I get back.

I checked and all of Fido’s data plans for the US are about $1 per megabyte. That seems excessively expensive. I will just bring my iPhone set to ‘airplane mode‘ and use WiFi where available.

That’s if I do end up going on this trip, which is becoming more certain by the day.

I look forward to following your trip and adventures on our blog.

Which of the options are you most leaning towards?

I am still not even totally sure if the non-Washington parts of the trip are a good idea. There are a fair number of things I need to deal with, in terms of moving and other tasks. It would also be a more prudent use of time to work on a doctoral application, even if it is unrealistic to try to submit applications this fall.
