Third, it provides me a segue to talk about almost taking a job with a company that was looking at utilizing radio waves to transmit, not power, but data to remote computers traveling around cities (of course cell phones and internet made their attempts mute and the company disappear). Glad I did not take the job. Lastly, I can answer his question...why YES I can and do access the internet from off the grid via satellite...look up the company "Wild Blue"...my buddy subscribes. I can actually log into my PC at work from off the grid, 250 miles away, and subsequently support customers around the world from a log cabin near the Canadian border. Technology is amazing. With a generator (or an effective battery) I could probably do it from my tent. However, its only amenity is a wood stove.
You'll do anything to get away from the in-laws, won't you?
