Enjoying Wi-Fi and wildlife

BOISE, Idaho — Ahh, the rituals of camping.

Grabbing that first cup of camp coffee and greeting the day by opening up your laptop to see if Wall Street is being kind to your stock portfolio.

“It used to be that when campers would make reservations at an RV park they would ask if the park had water, electricity and sewer,” said Kelly Hogan, CEO of Boise-based NomadISP. “But today it’s water, electricity, sewer and Wi-Fi.”

Nomad employs 12 people at its Boise headquarters. Nomad recently landed a contract as a preferred provider of Internet access at KOA Kampgrounds of America.

In a 2006 KOA survey, 53 percent of campers said they brought their laptops camping, up from 32 percent in 2005.
