While I have no affiliation with these guys, I think they might be useful for the power replenishment side of your camping problem :


PS I don't camp either, but I have used their Power Practical (http://powerpractical.com/collections/know-power) accessories for 'city boy' use cases :-)

Depends on "why" you're trying to block access:

Surfing Facebook is a productivity hit? A time bound exception (30 mins at a time) might be a viable approach.
Porn? Probably no valid reason to surf porn at most jobs.

As a previous poster said, if you're really concerned about malware / C+C servers etc, blacklist everything, whitelist a hand full of websites required for the job.

So book 2 one ways: JFK-LAX-???, LAX-JFK-???.

You don't *have* to book that as a round trip, although if you book the return leg on the same airline you throw away ??? You might have your return leg cancelled.

Fwiw frequent fliers have known this for years. Search the forums at flyertalk.com
