Now that we don’t have a big ol’ RV with a mobile satellite internet system on the roof, getting online while RVing to Alaska is not going to be easy. But we think we found a way to make it happen in areas with iffy coverage.
How we are getting online RVing to Alaska
To sum up the video, no we are NOT getting Starlink. Instead, we switched our cellular provider to AT&T, which has the widest reach in the North Country. Jim also got us a weBoost Drive Reach Overland signal booster to help us on the Alaska Highway.

As you can see, this isn’t the usual Friday Five photo shares that Jim usually puts together. He hasn’t had time to do that in a while and the same is true for me when it comes to blogging here.
Everything in our life is pretty upside down right now as we prepare for our launch date on August 5. In-between running our business, prepping the rig, packing our stuff, getting medical and household minutia in order, being ambassadors for Four Wheel Campers (more on that soon!), getting our rental ready to rent, seeing friends and family, and now, caring for an emerging medical issue with our Nellie, life has been chaotic, stressful, and crazy.
Getting ready for this adventure has been harder, more complicated, and more expensive than I ever imagined. Now more than ever I often ask myself
Why the heck are we doing this? What was I thinking when I said I wanted us to be LESS comfortable?yours truly
As the saying goes, be careful what you ask for, you just might get it.
