We’ve mentioned “boondocking” van camping and “stealth” camper vans several times recently in SurvivalBlog. Last week, a friend asked me for some details cellular boosters and Internet connectivity when traveling in remote areas. In the western United States, I recommend using Verizon network phones and the following ancillary equipment:

Verizon MiFi 6620L Jetpack 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot (Verizon Wireless)

Wilson Electronics 971107 N Female to FME Female Connector

Wilson Electronics 952350 50 feet WILSON400 Ultra Low Loss Coax Cable with N Male Connectors

DHT Electronics RF coaxial coax cable assembly SMA male right angle to N female bulkhead 12”

weBoost 700-2700 MHz Wide Band Directional Antenna with N Female Connector – Retail Packaging – White

weBoost Drive 4G-S Cell Phone Signal Booster Cradle Mount Holder for Car, Truck and RV Use – For Single Device.

Note that Wilson Electronics recently changed their brand name to “weBoost”. I’ve also heard that Verizon now has a cellular calling plan with unlimited data for around $80 a month.

Note: Amazon offers deep discounts on many RV parts & accessories

  1. In regards to the Chainsaw training video. Anyone looking to expand their knowledge a quick internet search on US Forest Service Chainsaw Training and Manuals will yield several results and it is usually in PDF format.

  2. I know someone who is making good side money buying,refurbishing,reselling conversion vans for this. It is a urban phenomenon that hasn’t hit the headlines.
