I wanted to pass on a tip for those of you who are on the road a lot, and use an Internet connection (cellular or via a campground).
If you have ever wanted to be able to watch your home television---say for local news/events, you may want to investigate Slingbox:
As I have mentioned a few times, I am currently living in Europe on a six month project that I "volunteered" to do for my company. After a bit of setup issues, I was able to setup the Slingbox at home, connected to my home network and router and a TV device of my choosing.
I open my laptop (on the road, or even in a another room), and I start up their software. It allows me full control of the device I have connected to tit (in my case, a VCR/Tuner/DVD player), through an infrared connection to this box, I can "work" the remote to change channels or start a DVD.
The Slingbox could also be used in a relative's house, if you are full timing, so you could watch your favorite sports team, or "share" a Satellite channel.
I suggest you look at the web site, and of you have any questions, please post them, as I don't want to drone on about it if no one is interested.
(EMAM, this might be of special interest to you, the Mrs., and those Maker's Mark-loving dogs.)
To me, its very comforting to see my local news, and familiar commercials, and makes me feel "more connected" to home, even though I am 5000 miles away.
