I’m at my dad’s this week in Garrison. The wonders of getting away to the ranch are many, and I always enjoy my time here. But there are some draw backs.
- Little mobile phone reception. This is always a benefit when I want to be unreachable, but becomes a hindrance when I’m trying to connect with friends.
- Dial-up Internet. Before anyone goes mocking the concept, it’s important to consider the fact that high speed is unattainable this far out, unless you use satellite (which may be in the future).
These aren’t huge deals in and of themselves, but they can be little annoyances in the most unexpected circumstances.
