You go camping, hiking, kayaking and boating to get AWAY from your cell phone. But I personally think having Wi Fi coverage at the Lake Mead National Recreation Area is a GREAT idea.
How about for safely? I had a boat on Lake Mead for a long time and yes, I did have a marine radio. But two forms of communication are great when you get into trouble. And you will eventually, because boats are very persnickety and my Bayliner, at least, broke down often enough!
And don't you want your Facebook friends to see how much fun you are having boating and hiking????
Monday the National Park Service announced it is working with a Wi-Fi Internet provider to provide Internet access in the 1.5 million acre national park. You will have to pay a fee, but we locals now have to pay for parking on the Strip, so what else is new?
For the record, the Park Service currently offers FREE wireless Internet access at the Lake Mead Visitor Center--a great place for Facebook Live videos of our gorgeous bridge.
The Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School's survivor's March
"My partner and I hired Jake Soteros to be our real estate agent last year after deciding we wanted to invest in the ever evolving downtown Las Vegas housing market. I immediately thought of Jake, since he has been immersed in the downtown scene as a business owner, and also a resident, and definitely has his finger on the pulse! After completing two home purchases over the course of 4 months, having spent the previous 2-3 months searching for just the right properties, I can honestly say that Jake went above and beyond my expectations as a real estate professional! The process of searching for, making offers on, and navigating the contract process can be a roller coaster, to say the least, and Jake's calm and confident demeanor, and his knowledge of the market really helped us to maintain our sanity through some stressful times! And since we travel and work a lot, there were a couple of occasions when Jake acted as a stand-in when we weren't able to be present for an inspection or a repair. I have already referred a good friend that was interested in buying a property downtown to Jake, and she is really enjoying working with him, as well. After our first house closed, celebrating over Mexican food and margaritas, Jake told us that "cheesy as it may sound", he loves helping people reach their goals, and seeing them happy is really gratifying for him :) That absolutely comes through in his work! We are definitely happy, and ready to celebrate that second closing when you are, Jake!"
