Excellent advice. We will have our laptops with us, and Verizon mifi. How are the phone and PC signals out west? Are there large areas with no service? The PA and NYS mountains were very spotty 4 years ago. I was wondering if it was the same out west.

Verizon is excellent in California along all the major highways and towns.

Fairly good along I10,and 40 in the other western states.

There are a lot of free WiFi spots available at all the fast food places, Lowes, Home depot, etc.

The only large areas with no service are in the Sierra mountain range and along the Pacific Coast.

We use Verizon and it's seldom an issue for coverage.

Also remember in case of an Emergency and your phone shows no coverage, dial 911 anyways. You will probably connect to another carrier even if you show no signal. Been there, done that!

That's good to know. Some areas free hot spots and some don't. I'm seeing them in more and more places now.

Oh,... I didn't know this and it's important information. Between our cellphones and the CB radio, we should be OK if something should happen.
