Avoiding EMFs: WiFi & Laptops
I'm about to begin full-time RVing, and will be writing while on the road. I wish to avoid staying at parks with WiFi, and likewise, I don't want to use a laptop. Does anyone have any ideas for a method of word processing that stands alone, and doesn't require use of a PC or laptop?
I'm remembering the bulky old word processors with the small viewers. There must be some kind of upgrade. Any ideas?
Also, I'm interested in knowing the best email service available without use of computer.
Coleen, the working while RVing editor replies:
Back in the days before computers were common household items, I wrote my newspaper columns on a typewriter. Actually, I wrote them by hand with a pencil and paper, and then typed them up before submitting them. And, I either hand delivered them or mailed them by snail mail.
I'm not sure what's available in the line of typewriters these days. But, the last one I used had some word processing capabilities.
You piqued my curiosity. I just Googled "where to buy a typewriter" and came up with all sorts of options. Auto correct capabilities. Built in dictionaries. Function keys for automation.
You'll find the most choices if you get an electric model. However, if you plan to do remote RVing in areas without electric hook-ups, manual typewriters are still available, too.
As for email, are you also eliminating the use of cell phones?
Perhaps some of our other readers have more to share on this and will give you their suggestions.
