Working remotely from Estes Park

Kicking around the idea of working remotely from Estes Park for a week or two this summer to get some climbing in before/after work and on the weekends. Only hard requirement is that reliable WiFi/Broadband access is needed during the work portion of the day. Willing to camp and then work from a restaurant... library... any suggestions on lodging/broadband logistics? Cheap room w/ WiFi is also an option. I'm sure some of you have this down to a science by now.

Climbing partner is considering similar... but bringing family along... any good summer programs to stick the kids in?

Thanks in advance for the beta...

The YMCA....... as much as their a bunch of doosh bags, they have a huge lobby that would fit you very well.
If you looking for a partner hit me up.

I believe that Kind Coffee (http://kindcoffee.com/) has WiFi. Seems to be staffed by climbers, as well. It's a few doors down from the local rock shop.

And of course, if you want to get a T-Mobile Wifi account, you can camp out at Starbucks :shock:, which is a few doors down from that.

Good luck!

Dan

ooo sweeet. i was lucky enough to do that for a year and live there, but I had a rental house on davis hill and paid for broadband...
maybe the hostel ? camping near the park was a little tight - i always drove out on the peak to peak highway to camp...

Just out of pure curiosity, having never been there myself, why exactly are 'they' at the Y a 'bunch of douce-bags'? Is it the staff, guests, both....?
I am only asking, because I worked at the sort-of sister Y in NY for years, and only heard good things about Estes. I would assume those were very biased opinions though.
