connecting my ipad to a macbook

OK....so I was working with a friend in a non-wi-fi area today, and he wanted to send me a file. He has a macbook and I have my handy dandy ipad...

I assumed there would be some way to make his macbook and my ipad be on the same "network" and thus share files (via quick office on my ipad). We could not get it to work. Anyone know how to do this? We thought about bluetooth....we tried airport (on his mac)...neither worked.

For those that are unfamiliar with quick office...to upload files to an ipad, you just go to http://x.x.x.x:4242 (where x.x.x.x is the ipad IP address).

If we were to both put on static IPs in the same subnet would that have worked?

Any help is appreciated!

Install the dropbox app. This will allow you to sync to a folder on his macbook even if you're not on his network.
