MIA.....Maybe.....

We'll be arriving at Mountain Dreams (our home in Montana) on Sunday! Hip Hip Hurray! When we left 13 months and 2 days ago (not that I'm counting) we had our satellite TV and DSL internet turned off. When we built the house we were told that cable was coming and our area would be first in the valley to be connected. Interbel (our local phone/tv/internet coop) installed the fiber optic cable at the same time they put in our phone line. Last summer when we were there we saw them laying the cable from town. So....we called last week to check on the progress. They expect to turn it on in the next 2-3 weeks! We've decided to wait for it. There's no use getting the satellite service running again and signing up for the DSL we had and then be stuck in it for a year. We love Montana Skynet which we had before, but we'd like to switch to cable internet. We're hoping we can hook up Interbel DSL right away, switch to cable when they turn it on and then get out of it if we don't like it. We had a few issues with their DSL before...which is why we switched to Montana Skynet. The reason I'm telling you all this is that we may have no internet at home for awhile. I'll have to drive to town and sit at the library with my laptop...inside when they're open, out on the lawn when they're not :) As for television, we'll just wait for cable and listen to the news on satellite radio in the meantime. Will be here when I can!

I have never been to Montana, but I bet it is gorgeous!

Do you spend summers there?
