Internet/cell update - Desolation Sound

Just an update for all you PNW Desolation Sound Cruisers.

I noticed as I rounded the top of Malaspina a new cell tower right on Sarah point overlooking Desolation Sound so I was hopeful and it's true. So for all those interested: Right now I'm floating at the mouth of Roscoe Bay with strong signals. To clarify, I have Telus for my cell and Rogers for my internet stick and both are very good. not sure if they're sharing the same tower but in any case I get them both very well.

Prior to this, Twin Islands was the deepest I could get into Desolation without running out of steam. I will update this thread as I tread deeper into the wilderness.

About to enter Rosco Bay, may loose it inside but we'll see.


[edit] am I addicted to communication....makes me ponder the fact that I can actually get high from this discovery. It's not like I'm discovering a new land or anything like that. Is this what we've become? I hope not!
