Well, looks like it is time to decide what I will use to communicate on the road. I still like writing my own web pages, but it is very difficult to include reader comments. Blogger makes reader comments very easy, so I think I will use Blogger for my main mode of communication. I may still maintain my web site and home made pages for past events and trips.
What brought this on? I have a reader. Yes, someone is reading this site. Wade, from www.vagabondjourney.com/travelogue/ has left a few comments. I suppose it is only fair as I have been cluttering up his site with my ramblings for a couple of years now.
Wade is not only an extremely good writer, but he has a way of looking at thngs that can make you really think. He also has a good variety of readers that leave interesting comments. If you have a chance, go to his site and wander around, you won't be disappointed.

Keep going, I say. Blog away until the sun comes down. At least one person is interested in the ramblings have previously only been left in patchwork all over the internet.
I would recommend getting one of those usb internet connection things though for your motorcycle journeys. I have not tried them out yet, but they seem like a good idea.

Thanks, although I think my ramblings are more interesting if they are in reference to an interesting post. Your posts do tend to plant the seed of thought.

If you mean to connect through the cell phone system similar to the way that Andy does now, that is VERY expensive. Yes, if immediate connection was important to me, I would do it, as money is not especially tight, but I am not a slave to the internet .... yet.
Some of the guys in the IronButt Rally have Wifi, Cell Phone, and even satellite connections to the 'net. When I travel, I really have never desired serious connection. I have, however, craved having some way to write electronically, cheaply, from my room or tent or whatever. No one has yet come up with a device that truly satisfied my wants at my price, but the new netbooks are a pretty good compromise between size, power and price. More power than I need, bigger than I'd like but not a bad choice.
