Is there anyone out there that is RVing fulltime or a couple of months at a time & also a PaperBackSwap member?  If so, how do you handle the trades?  I could also use some advice on how to handle my internet service.   How do you connect to the internet?   Which system do you use?  Jeanne

Hi Jeanne, I'm brand new to the book swap so can't help you with that part but I was a full timer until a few years ago and still go out at least once a month. I have dial up at home but can still get online when we go out. Last week we were i Myrtle Beach and the campground had a phone jack at each site. I carry a l-o-n-g (25ft) phone cord that I put through my window (taking the screen out first). (Newer rigs sometimes have a phone line already wired in.) Then I just began the sign on process, looking for local phone #s to sign on. Last month I used the free WIFI at the KOA campground. It still worked with my Compuserve account. Hope that helps some. Let me know if you have any other questions Nancy

My family and I are planning on going fulltime in the near future.  I'm not sure how we are going to handle the swap thing yet.  Here's a website where you might some more information on the internet situation.  They have a yahoo group and a forum as well.

For an internet connection you can try a wireless broadband card.  Verizon, Sprint, and several other companies offer them.  They usually run around $50 per month.
