I'm considering doing the same thing, I'd be interested to hear from anybody else currently doing that. My thoughts are to move between short to mid-term stays WWOOFing or doing work exchange, with periods of camping in between when my uni workload is low.

I'm in Australia, but just had a look at the 4G coverage map for my provider; it's pretty good, and the amount of people who incessantly document their travels on social media lead me to think that it would be a definite possibility.

I'd be looking into acquiring a 4G range extender/amplifier/antenna, they're pretty damn expensive but it might end up making the difference between being able to camp out comfortably and smash out school work or having to stay close to towns, which would kill a lot of the fun and most of the point.

Overall it's a promising idea, and would be a lot cheaper than renting and trying to get buy on student payments, which is really killing me at the moment. Work exchange on farms often results in being ridiculously well-fed and can result in some paid work or having a house to yourself as well.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $20.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $20.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $20.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $20.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
