October 6, 2003: After his special guest appearance at BloggerCon, Lonewacko drove through Connecticut as quickly as possible. He was on his way to visit the rock climbing areas in the Shawagunks about 100 miles north of NYC.
I had already visited the highest point in CT a few years back so there wasn't much else of interest. I briefly got off the freeway in Hartford and then again in Westbury, but, after being unable to answer the question I immediately asked myself ("Why?") I quickly got back on the road.
The Boingo Wifi locations at the Doubletree in Hartford Locks and at the Dolce Heritage in Southbury both worked. However, I had previously called the Hartford Locks location and asked if I could use their WiFi service. They had told me that only guests or AirPort subscribers could use the service. I called Boingo and told them what I'd been told; they told me that they had an agreement with AirPort and that I could use the service. So, while I was able to sit in Double Tree lobby and connect, it's worrisome that they'd never heard of Boingo or its agreement with AirPort.
