I got a feeling the wife is going to want to get on the road ASAP too. She loves to get away from work whenever it's possible and they are BUSY right now. I gotta figure out some way to get my cell phone internet on the computer (without paying for it) for the trip...
Oooooh, you're flattered because Tiber and I are fighting over you! I don't blame you.

If it's the week of the 17th, I'm available just about everyday as far as I know. The 17th itself is Qunn's birthday party so I'm busy that day. Although, I know Tara likes you guys and would probably invite you over also! Our whole life style is pretty laid back and we all have a "the more the merrier" outlook.

You can stay here, visit, stay at the cottage, come for dinner, etc, at any time. You're always welcome, and we don't often have commitments we can't change.

Now there's an idea! I could bring some growlers of homebrew. Hopefully we can work something out!

I guess we're giving the impression that yoopers are desperate for visitors.

what kind of phone do you have? If iphone or any of the android phones. Then there are many apps, some require root/jail breaking while others dont.

I'm looking at PDAnet, which for Android doesn't require rooting or jailbreaking. The Alltel store said we could sign up for tethering and only use it for the month, which would work if I can't get it for free.

I'm not addicted so much that the UP drag me away! I'm not saying I'm not addicted to HBT though.

My work would only call me in a severe emergency. My wife's work OTOH, would be hard pressed to be without her for very long.

Growlers would be fine for me! I must insist that I won't be pounding them down like last time though. I've learned my lesson! Really.

well i would look into rooting your phone. root app for tether are much easier to use and unlike PDAnet the free versions dont have any restrictions. What phone do you have. Many are extremely simple to root while others can be hard.

If you have an HTC Droid you can tether one PC for free, and you don't have to download any apps. When you plug a USB cable to your PC, it will ask if you want to charge, mount as a drive, share connection, etc...

My phone is a Motorola Milestone X. The PDAnet is supposed to allowed tethering without usage monitor. So far I have not got it working.

I may look into rooting some day. Just seems like a waste of time since i really only make calls, read ebooks, and surf the web. What's the advantage in rooting it?

I did just get PDAnet working. So far it seems ok. The limitation is blocked secure sites, which is ok for a testing IMO. My wife will need this feature for using with her work's remote access I'm sure.

I don't think this is true. According to our service plan, our HTC Droid Hero would cost $25 per month to tether. I have a friend who tried rooting that phone and was unsuccessful. He currently has a tethering plan on it and would love to drop it. He'd also like to make a hotspot out of it.
