Summertime’s a great time to hit the open road – without leaving life behind. Technology widely available to the consumer market helps the “anywhere” office – and online personality – come alive without an electrical outlet or Ethernet cable in sight. This is Americana in a way Norman Rockwell never could have imagined.

This summer, the Home Office Highway ‘11 road show will showcase the tech, tools and tips that empower people to work and play from the interstate highway – or the information superhighway. The three-week excursion and social media event will highlight how “location independence” can be found wherever life’s journey ventures.

This year, we’ll travel from Fort Lauderdale to San Francisco. Part sightseeing trip, part college tour, all fun-n-games. The van will have laptops, digital cameras and other technology common to the modern family home.

We’ll even manage family finances effortlessly from anywhere. “With wifi, the cloud and a computer, you can work and play from anywhere.

Among the devices planned for the road:

- Three Macbooks, an HP laptop, and an MSI Netbook. All five can be online at the same time using a…

- Verizon Wireless Samsung 4G LTE mobile hotspot. Small and portable as a stack of business cards, the device will keep the family connected almost wherever the road takes them.

Product placement / demonstration opportunities are still available.
