I remember the good old days of dial up....I was an early adopter of the internet.
My first internet experience was with Compuserve.....I paid $50.00 for the software, (probably around 1988), and was thrilled if a website picture loaded within 3 minutes.
Of course I didn't have a local dialup at that time so I was also paying long distance charges while waiting for that photo to load.
I really feel that I could be right at home in a cabin in the woods, living off of the land but I would still want the internet. I use it a minimum of 50 times a day for research on various hobbies and interests.
