And the travelers' benefactor will be the unusually generous JetBlue, which will be offering connectivity in the air gratis beginning in 2013. I haven't been able to find any info on a starting date for that service, but here's a press release touting the coming broadband, which the airline is offering in partnership with ViaSat.
This AND free blue potato chips? JetBlue, I gotta crush on you.
Dallas Travel and Adventure Show!
Dallas Travel and Adventure Show. It should be quite the event! Along with my speech, the ever-charming and currently very pregnant Samantha Brown of the Travel Channel will be appearing. Richard Weise of the ABC show "Born to Explore" is also on the bill. And Tiffany Derry, of Top Chef fame, will be dishing up food at the culinary stage (along with a number of other world chefs)!
Bring the kids! There'll be lots of fun activities for them---climbing walls, huge bubbles to walk in over water, a zipline visits from the critters at the Dallas Zoo and more.
