Calling Home

Mt Kosciuszko, NSW, AU

Today we cover two interesting and mostly unrelated facts.

1) Though literally miles from anywhere even slightly resembling civilization, Mt Kosciuszko is probably the only member of the 7 summits that has mobile phone reception.

Yep, up there.  Best coverage in the area.

2) Greg’s self confidence most likely comes from his mother’s side of the family.

The last mountain we were on top of in the southern hemisphere had less cell phone coverage but more snarky commentary.

About the authors

Greg and Tiffany are traveling around the world on sailing yachts and keep a video blog of their (mis)adventures.  If sailing to Tahiti on a 44 ft sailboat, 3-day delays for wine tastings, getting pooped on by seagulls, opening coconuts with dull machetes, sailing past tornadoes and ukulele Christmas carols are for you, then check them out!

    Did you know they have 3G up in Machu Picchu?! Yet I can’t get reception if I leave Austin… *sigh* CRAZY!

      That’s crazy! Cell phone reception is such a random thing… You can get great coverage 3 miles off the coast of Baja Mexico too!
