On the Road in Vermont

Kathleen and I left on Monday morning for a few days in Vermont. We each have friends who live up here full time, and wanted to visit some places where we hadn't been together before.

I also downloaded QuickNews, a PalmOS-based RSS aggregator and mo:Blog, a PalmOS blog editing tool. I wanted to see whether I could go away for three or four days and not bring a laptop with me at all.

This is my first post on mo:Blog, so we'll see how it works. I'm not trying to put a lot of links or formatting into the article, but I'm also doing a bit more than the typical test post.

On the Mobile Internet front, Cingular has good coverage in cities like Burlington and Rutland as well as towns like Middlebury. Service seems to be available on most of U.S. Highway 7 between Rutland and Burlington, as well as on Interstate 89 in the White River Junction area.

We have also spent some time beyond the limits of Cingular's network, which I feel is understandable given this state's population and topography. Overall, I've been impressed with Cingular's coverage.

I'll be back at the Home Office on Thursday night. Look for an article or two then, or on Friday morning, depending on when we get back.
