TIP: iPhone (or similar) map function works great in Mexico and between that and Google, is like having a Fodors in your pocket.

Works great if you have wi fi. If you are out on street where you really need it have to have data turned on...really expensive if you haven't bought expensive data plan. Working hand held GPS cheaper. Free maps from hotels and tourist offices cheaper still.

I take an IPad to Mexico now, mostly to work with photos using an app called Snapseed.

Do you still need the tedium and bandwidth necessary to upload to smugmug for posting here?

You IPad guys need to check that out, with that and a camera connection kit, you are in business. Texas guys may know Skip Hunt, that's all he uses most nowadays. Fast, effective, relatively cheap, and fun.
Camera kit works great. Very easy to fill up ICloud storage and need to buy more in mid journey. From iPad photos you can only eMail one pic at a time...yahoo mail will not allow me to attach files from iPad. Can receive attachments but not upload, an inconvenience and a pita sending one at a time from Photos.

Judging from the pic of your daughter in Italy Tricewife must be absolutely gorgeous with very dominant genes

Actually what I am doing is NOT paying paying anything on the go, zero cents,other than the cost of keeping my battery charged from the wall outlet or the bike outlet.Can't get much cheaper than that
I have simple needs, obviously know little about the size of ipods

That is indeed a well produced video...wish they would use some great contemporary Mexican music instead of predictable gringo headbanger shit.

So...how do you get cell service to make or receive a call if you need to or do you use the phone solely for internet and internet facilitated communications? That is discipline! Do you use online banking and bill paying? You are indeed the master of minimalism! The almost analog hombre.

For what its worth..

I used to have At&T and because of traveling, my bill was on average 200 bucks per month.

I bit the bullet and bought the 700 dollar unlocked iPhone and my bill has never been more than 40 bucks in the last 2 years. Doesnt matter what country. Pretty much the same all over the world.

Cel phone contracts are evil

Yes, but the other side of the divide from here. The San Miguel flows to the Dolores to the Colorado.

Bike parking and head resting a mi casita

Thanks for promoing us. We constantly rely on the kindness of strangers.
