We are thrilled to announce that our new eBook – The Mobile Internet Handbook, is now available!
This started as a blog post overviewing options for us RVing nomads … and it turned into a 26,000 word book. We apparently had a lot of information in our brains to dump, way too much for a blog post.
So after weeks of late night writing, tweaking and polishing – it’s ready!
It’s available as a PDF or ePub file directly from us using your PayPal account. We’ve also made it available on Amazon Kindle.
We’ll also soon have it available on Apple iBooks and for purchase as a printed book – just as soon as those channels have completed their setup process. Check back at the book’s home at https://www.technomadia.com/internet for availability.
The Mobile Internet Handbook is a guide to mobile internet options for RVers in the USA. Cellular data, WiFi, satellite, HAM and more.
Over 26,000 words – 85 pages long!
List price – $9.99

About ‘The Mobile Internet Handbook’
This book is written by full time RVing ‘technomads’ Chris and Cherie of Technomadia.com. As we work online running our software development business remotely, internet is essential to allow us to travel full time.
In this handbook, we share everything we’ve learned about assembling a mobile internet arsenal that balances your budget and needs for connectivity. We base this off our extensive real world experience of navigating the varying options and frustrations as full time RVers since 2006.
The book covers cellular, WiFi, satellite, HAM, cable/DSL, boosting, hints & tricks, managing bandwidth and most importantly – setting your expectations for what life on the road with mobile internet is like. We share information you need to know to help understand your options and build your own arsenal to suit your needs.
This handbook is geared specifically towards US based internet options, and does not specifically cover international travel. And more precisely, it is geared towards frequent or full-time RVers and road warriors, although frequent US travelers will probably find plenty of useful information too. Our aim with the book is not to provide a shopping list of gear to go purchase, but rather give you enough information to build your own unique mobile internet arsenal.
While we do cover specific products, we do not have financial interest in any of the devices, services or products mentioned. We are frequently referred to as ‘tech-Switzerland’, and simply share our opinions and experiences.
This book is written to help those with minimal tech backgrounds as well as geeks like us; for folks who just need to get online for a little e-mail & surfing, to fellow bandwidth junkies who need as much internet as they can get.
Chris and Cherie have decades of combined technology experience. Chris has worked in the mobile technology industry since the early days of mobile internet, and holds degrees in computer engineering and science. Cherie has been a location independent software developer since the mid-90s. And together we have been on the road working remotely full time since 2006.
Our home on wheels is a living laboratory for mobile technology, and we are delighted to share our experience with you.
And the reviews are coming in!
“It was my pleasure to review an advanced copy of “The Mobile Internet Handbook” by Technomadia. This is by far the best explanation of the various options to stay connected on the road that I have seen. Cherie and Chris not only sort through all the complexities of the various communications options available, but they do it in a fashion that is entertaining, and easy to read and understand. If you are mystified about how to stay in touch “on the road” then you need look no further than this ebook. An outstanding treatment of a complex topic! A “must read” for non-techies, but even geeks will learn something new.”

“The Mobile Internet Handbook that is an easy to understand resource for both new and experienced RVers, explaining the options available, the many different plans offered by the various cell phone companies, and how to get the most out of your equipment.”
– Nick Russell, 6/4/2013 – www.gypsyjournalrv.com
(Nick publishes the Gypsy Journal, an awesome full time RVer’s resource that you should definitely check out!)
“Jim read most of it out loud to me and we both were nodding our heads all the way thru. You wrote the book that has been on our list to write for years. I’m glad somebody got around to it!”
– Chris Guld, 6/3/2013 – www.geeksontour.tv
(Chris and Jim Guld run GeeksOnTour, computer training materials for travelers. Great resource!)
“It’s well-written, easy-to-understand and goes through all the options for US-based travelers in a fun, clear way. I wish this thing had been out when we started RVing!”
– Nina Fussing – 6/5/2013 – wheelinging.wordpress.com
(Nina writes one of our favorite full time RVing blogs, check her out – her stories & photos from the road are very engaging!)
If you’ve read and enjoyed our new book – we’d absolutely love it if you left a review on Amazon! (you don’t have to have bought it there to leave a review.)
