Gabe and Rocio are two virtual nomads who have spent the last four years traveling full-time. Following the aftermath of Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, they sold everything they owned, moved stateside, and began their RV lifestyle. They are currently traversing the lower 48 states with their dogs, Wilson and Journey, in search of all the beauty the U.S. has to offer.
The first thing we do is research different boondocking or camping websites and apps. We like to use Campendium and Sēkr because these two usually provide reviews on both cell service coverage and details on which carrier has the strongest signal. We actually travel with three different cell service carriers—I’ve got one carrier, Rocio has another, and then we also have a hotspot from a third carrier. So, if we’re ever in a campsite that has spotty service, one of our three carriers can usually pick something up and we’re covered. We also purchased a WiFi booster for our camper van and this really helps. We simply turn on the hotspot and place it next to the booster, and we instantly get an extra two or three bars.
