Katy Trail Rock Island Spur Comments
Wi-Fi on the Katy?


My wife and I are planning to ride the Katy in June from Clinton to St. Charles. Right now we are planning to make reservations and stops along the way. We've got a small laptop and it would be nice to keep in touch with the kids / facebook at various stops along the way.

Any one have any feedback on places along the way that offer WiFi service? Our stops along the way (as of now) are:
- Clinton (maybe Night 1 just to get a fresh start)
- Sedalia
- Rocheport
- N. Jefferson
- McKittrick
- Augusta

Then finish at St. Charles where family will pick us up.

Thanks for any feedback.

Ray.

Try http://www.wififreespot.com. Make a pdf file and save it on your netbook so you can find a free spot when you can't link up.

It doesn't list every spot, because Doug isn't on there, but the baseline today seems to be most major motel/hotels, McDonalds, Panera, etc.

Yeah, boy I know I absolutely can't go a couple of days without looking at facebook.

Chill Steve. They said it would be nice to keep in touch with their kids. Kids know texting, facebook, twitter, etc. If others use that media and you don't, why not just be nice and welcome them to our state?

The DNR ride is the third week in June. Only it is going, I think, from St. Charles to Clinton this year. It is a great, great, ride full SAG support by MO DNR. Cannot do any better. I have ridden the last two years on the DNR ride. Going to miss it this year due to a family wedding back east. DARN, Double Darn.

Copies Etc offers free wi-fi to anyone. We are located one block south of the missouri river bridge on the east side of the road. During the colder times of the year we offer free hot apple cider to the bikers. There is a park bench outside the door or you can come in and cool off in the air conditioning. WELCOME TO BOONVILLE, have a safe biking season!
