Well counting on google to decode humor is risky - but I found this looking for "Augusta fair"

I agree that paying for wifi at a high end property but getting it free at Motel 6 is crazy. The same is true for parking.
Some places may continue to charge but I think the tide is running against them. The ill will of a fee based system will cost you more than the revenue you might gain.

I'll confess - guilty of the most obscure - the NJ State Fair is currently taking place in the lovely little village of Augusta NJ.

I don't know if they have free WiFi or not.

There are recent talks with Bloomberg about adding free Wi-Fi all over NYC streets. Cars will then be able to have real computers capable of the same performance your home PC has.

My wife is one who could not get in as much skiing as she does (way, way less than I get) without access in the lodge to her laptop. Free wifi in the lodge keeps her happy. The laptop goes into our locker so she can access it at lunch and/or while I'm finishing up the day's lessons. She'd have to stay at home otherwise.

We also carry it on trips for both of us to use at whatever lodging. Free wifi or phone hookup is a factor in our lodging choices.

I actually made my lodging choice the Poklodi Lodge at this year's ESA based on internet access at no extra charge. Wildwood Lodge was not only more expensive, but charged for internet. Without having ever visited either one, that was the deal breaker.

If I ever felt the need to stop skiing to check my e-mail, I would have to kick my own ass!
here is my example from this past year.

It snowed 22" over night. I had school w/ a paper due at 5pm. The class only had 2 papers due all quarter making up 90% of the class grade. I would cut class in a heart beat for half that much new snow but it seemed irresponsible to fail a class for a pow day. So I drove up early, worked till 8:20 got dressed and grabbed first chair. Skied till noon faceshot city. Grabbed lunch finished my essay and turned it intime for a quickie in the slack country and night skiing till 9. At the end of the day I felt better than I had felt on other days when I had just skied all day.

Best use of a LT at the mountain is the abiity to look at the latest radar and weather, mountain reports and snow cams as soon as the sun comes up. Pan the camera over to look at drifts and piles on railings or branches, Hmm, Shamans or 94's????

I take my laptop with me, but only use it if the need arises (client emergency etc).

When the option is stay at the office and work or go skiing and MAYBE have to work, I'll choose the skiing.

Like Finndog my work time and leisure time are hopelessly blurred.

Foreplay! Violated!

Cant you get that with your laptop? Probably not in the base lodge though( as the wife whacks me in the back of the head and pleads with dog to bite me)
