Wi-Fi, Bike Week For Cheap … The Art Of Public Sleeping

March 14th, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Hotels

  It was the first road trip. It was the first real road trip, because an occasional backroads excursion to Muleshoe or to Lubbock where just not life changing. As farmers, of modest means at that, we just didn’t take vacations.  Then my dad shocked everyone and announced we were headed to Florida for Spring […]

Wi-Fi & The Dirty Gig: One Day At A Time

February 19th, 2016 · Tags: Hotels · Satire

After the initial Republican Debate euphoria and the chance meet up with #MajorGarrett (in the previous blog), The Dirty Gig in South Carolina slowed to a snail’s pace … kinda like a long, slow, southern drawl.  Day in, day out, we suited up in Tyvek suits and cleaned grease and soot off industrial machines.  The […]

Chattanooga Rolls Out Red Velvet For PingWi-Fi

February 1st, 2016 · Tags: Airports · Cities · Coffee Shops · Hotels · Wi-Fi

  In my culture, Chattanooga is a word that translates as nostalgic. One of my bigger public affairs clients a few years back was based in this Tennessee hamlet and my first Wi-Fi Guy blog took me through “Nooga for a few hours. Most nolstalgic, my second visit to the home of Krystal hamburger joints, […]

Remember the scenes in old westerns in which the “Indians” refused to be photographed because they believed the camera might steal their souls?  Well, me and my Nikon don’t subscribe to that theory … and yet …

Gildan New Mexico Bowl Wi-Fi: Quirky In Abuquerque

December 23rd, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Sports · Wi-Fi

  ALBUQUERQUE — The 2014 Gildan New Mexico Bowl was the antithesis of the previous version. Last year — an air-it-out/shoot-em-up, between Colorado State and Mike Leach’s Washington State. This year … a much more physical, grueling, slightly conservative style of play pitting the Utah State Aggies (10-3, Mountain West Conference) vs. The Miners of UTEP […]

Aggies Win — A Different Kind Of Wi-Fi Gig

November 3rd, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Sports · Uncategorized · Wi-Fi

  Man. I don’t know who Number 12 was at Texas A&M, but they sure sell a lot of his jerseys.   I jest. The 12th Man … what a cool tradition — one of so many at this great school. One so cool it has been “rebranded” (stolen) by an NFL team. Gotta love […]

PingWi-Fi Adds Gaylord Tales — Some Smokin Hot, Some Not

June 7th, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Wi-Fi

I had lots of Marriott hotel points, and therefore had free-ish lodging at one of the coolest hotels. Have you seen it?   Gaylord  […]

February 4th, 2014 · Tags: Cities · Hotels · Wi-Fi

  Finally, a day off from The Dirty Gig, because we are “snowed out.” … This time the PingWi-Fi tour stops in “The Cities” — Kansas City, Kan. and Kansas City, Mo. … time to shoot photos, test Wi-Fi, blog, listen to music…   I am reeling at just how well Apple iTunes Radio knows […]

Efficiency Means Tough Decisions For Quirky Traveler

October 15th, 2013 · Tags: Hotels

Travel is a funny thing. So many variables. Then, if you get other people involved in arranging your schedule, your priorities, your budget … man, what a mess it can be.   As I galavant around — from time to time — I have a rare opportunity to go home and take a break before […]

Mental Note: Put A Ping Under Pillow For Peace Of Mind

September 13th, 2013 · Tags: Hotels · Satire

If I don’t cash them in now, I think someday I may have enough hotel points to just retire and grow old in the nearest Holiday Inn. Now there’s an optimistic thought:) And with all those points stories have accumulated as well … life on the road leads to some pretty interesting hotel situations.
