In Hilton Head, SC.
Checkout time of condo: 10am
drive time home to Columbus (yes, I live there) : 12-14 hours with stops
Assuming we leave around 10am, what are my options to see/hear the game?
I have a laptop with a road travel charger and vz access manager for my verizon blackberry storm with tethering capability.
Unfortunately, I learned on the drive here that for large portions of the drive have little to no verizon coverage, so my original plan of tethering and picking up the broadcast via justin tv probably wont work.
Charlotte is only 4-5 hours from here, so best case i would only catch first half if we stopped to eat around 2-3.
The next viable city I'm aware of would be Charleston, but thats 8 hours way, so could be pushing missing the end of the game.
I downloaded the xm app for the blackberry and got the free 7 day trial only to learn that the big ten network is not part of the mobile solution.
What am I overlooking? I feel like there is something obvious with all ND games being on NBC, but with the digital conversion for TV's I dont believe radio stations still carry nbc/abc.
Yes, it may seem like poor planning to travel today, but I only had 2 weeks that overlapped between school break and my eligible vacation schedule at work.. The prior week the cost of the condo would have been double.
