Need to allow more than one answer in the poll, I use both the first and second choice but could only pick one answer.

I voted to get away from it all. When I go camping it is usually way out in the boonies and no electric hook up. I wouldn't mind having cell phone conections, but my provider has crappy coverage when I get too far from the interstate.

Although when I'm on my ten days of teardrop time in the Adirondacks I have been known to stop in at the Long Lake Library around mid-trip and use their computer to check my e-mail...

When I go away there is no people, no phone service and definitely no computers.
Cheers

I agree with camping to get away from it all...

However, I do pack my laptop, just incase I need a vital piece of information, like the weather forcast...

I also pack my WWAN.

Right now our laptop mount is my wife's lap. :) Can you tell us where you got your mount, what it costs, how much it is to install, etc.?

I have been walking slowly by city police cars to look at how they have a computer mounted to get an idea. I am worried that an officer is going to get the wrong idea about what I am doing. :oops:

i got mine from ram-mount.com they run around 200-300 depending on your car and options
it is super easy to install from these guys which is why there a little more then others that have you just bolt a plate to your floor
this company actually makes a bracket that uses your 2 existing front seat bolts so it doesnt harm your car at all and takes about 5 minutes to install
we also have a enormous power invertor and enough plugs up front to run our house but when were on a 30 hour drive none stop its surprising how much crap you need to charge

p.s. heres a link to a pdf of the particular one that i have which is a pretty good picture of it
