[liberationtech] Community Wireless Across America

Why don't you consider expanding your trip to the "real frontier" of
America at the moment?

That is, the US-Mexico border states. Communities there REALLY need
this type of technology to help them cope, among other things, with
the onslaught of militarization by the US, State, and sometimes even
Local government "law-enforcement" agencies.
