Need internet!!!
Many of you know that I will be leaving shortly to attend a paleoanthropology field school in Tanzania. Part of the stipulation for getting the scholarship that reimbursed some of the money I paid out of pocket is that I write a blog in which I detail my activities. It turns out that I will only have internet the first day that I arrive. There won't be internet access once we drive to base camp in Olduvai Gorge. I was wondering if members know of a method for some kind of mobile internet. I'm checking into using my phone as a mobile hotspot this Friday with my phone carrier, but cursory research shows that this would be quite expensive. Are there any other options?

I use this:

As long as you have electricity, you should have internet with one of these.

Maybe you have something similar in the US.

If you buy a simcard,buy it from a provider wich offers a flat rate dataplan. You do NOT want to be charged per MB you use

I don't really like going outside.
It's too damn "peopley" out there....

Looking forward to reading about your adventures.

If all else fails, go old school and keep a journal. Then log it in when you get home Smile

We are required to do so according to the professor leading the field school. My sister also suggested that I post it online after I come back. I may do that if getting internet is too much of a hassle.

If I remember correctly, he already has a fine-looking journal.

Keep it old school. I just saw a recent study which argued handwritten is more memory impressive than typing. Transcribe it digitally when you get back.
