Avoid roaming charges while visiting the USA
Isn’t it fun to go on vacation? Especially for those of us who practically live on the USA/Canada border, the lure of driving across and experiencing all that the USA has to offer is really too much to resist. After all, we may have lush green forests, but they have Disneyland.
Unfortunately, the second we cross the border my iPhone, my trusty companion for all things, becomes nothing more than a pretty little brick. Yes, I could use it, but if I do I’m going to be crying when the bill comes in.
But in a world where we have smartphones to prevent us from getting lost, keep us in touch with friends and family, and even let us video chat right on the phone, I knew there had to be something out there to mitigate disgusting roaming charges while still letting me carry on with business as usual. And I found it. It wasn’t that hard.
Here’s my recent article on The Vancouver Province about how to set yourself free this summer and roam where ever, and when ever, you’d like. Your Instagram followers will thank me.

I agree with the two people above that the VW Bus and the Corvair Greenbriar van were here WAY ahead of the Plymouth Voyager and Dodge Caravan, but these Chrysler minivans spawned a major change in the automotive landscape, almost completely replacing station wagons. And while SUVs and crossovers are taking up much of their market share, minivans are still all over the place. The VW bus and Corvair Greenbriar never attracted many buyers because of their unconventional design. The Chrysler Magic Wagons, as corporate literature called them at the time, caused people to go to Chrysler dealerships in droves to snap them up. Chrysler couldn’t build them fast enough to meet the demand. These minivans, along with the K cars, saved Chrysler from oblivion 30 years ago.
