Rogers will not work on the Rock. Ask me how I know.

I will take my verizon world phone witch can rom on any network GSM or CDMA. And with a little hack even if Verizon have no agrement with the company I will still use it! Price wise its not crazy because I switch to Canada plan before entering Canada and its like gives me like 1000 minuts for 20 extra dolars! Nice!!! Great success!!!!

For my purposes, it's probably better to kick Anton a few bucks if I need to make a call than to attempt to buy a set-up that will work on The Rock. He managed to get signal on his phone here, which is damned near impossible.

Luckily phone coverage is not a big concern for me. Each August my wife kisses me goodbye and says we'll see each other and talk in three weeks. She's not one to worry when cell coverage isn't available. Besides, I'll have my netbook with me for the times we have wifi so I can call her for free then.

Is this ride by invite or is it open to any reprobate? I see C-Stain is a maybe so the standards can't be that high

Looking for a trip this summer and planing to come East (back home) from Ontario. I need to go back through this tread and get the 5Ws on the plan, but I might be interested if the door is open. Likely bring another ADVer along with our SOs bringing the support vehicle.

Sorry, this ride is for red-blooded, pistol-packin', redneckin' pickup-truckin' commie baiting Amurricuns, not you syrup-guzzling, hockey-playing, "let's get along together" and "another Molson please" curling types that don't know the correct pronunciation of the word "about."

Jeez, we'll be letting the frikkin' Russians ride with us next. And women.

I'll be on a Honda XR650L pimped out with a couple of Pelican side cases, a Givi trunk, and Dunlop 606 tires.

cell phone coverage

Forget your cell phones completely. My phone with Rogers was useless in Gaspe and never worked in Cape Breton. I doubt that Rogers knows where Newfoundland is. Labrador is even worse. Occasional wifi and skype worked for me.
Dirt Roads, you should just get SPOT. I know there is someone at home how would like to know daily if you're still alive.
