What are the best ways to get WiFi on a camping road trip?

Family traditions to keep kids happy on a road trip
Growing up I spent every spring break and summer vacation on the road with my family. We drove, in a minivan, to forty-four states. To keep three children from kicking and screaming my parents devised a load of little activities and games for us to play. It was through these games that we were able to more fully enjoy each trip, and we all looked forward to them. The games became as much a part of the trips as the hotels, national parks, and picnics; they became traditions.
