We have been searching for a way to stay connected
this summer while on our little journey through US waters.
Several options were considered,
from swapping out the SIM card
for our iPhone or iPad,
WiFi boosters (Captain wants a Rogue Wave),
pay as you go plans.
Our Canadian location also presents us with additional limitations:
We don’t have a US address
so we toddled off to the nearest USPS location
in Plattsburgh, NY
to inquire about their services.
Some possibilites there to be considered.
We don’t hold a US-based credit card
so toddled off to a US branch of our card provider,
…but we need a US address for that.
OK then, what if we applied for a USPS service?
Well, no it needs to be a residential address.
Drat!! a never-ending loop of frustration!
But then a friend suggested something he uses…
Jetpack Ellipsis from Verizon.
No contract needed.
No US address needed.
No US credit card needed.
…then stopped for a delicious bite and refreshing brew
before heading back home.
