When we rode the DQ in '97 &'08, most of the time we were out of cell coverage--which was fine by me--I didn't even read the papers! Well, when we were in port, I'd check the headlines, just to make certain WW3 hadn't broken out, but we didn't care, we were on the river and what was news was what was happening there--or what we were going to eat at the next meal--and when do we get to hear or play the calliope! :)
Now the folks back home were a little unhappy about the situation, but I called in once a day, USUALLY, to help solve problems.
