The digital journey continues

It seems the more I want to explore the world on foot, the more I find myself  sitting in front of a computer screen. Or maybe I want to explore more on foot precisely BECAUSE I am always in front of a computer screen. Some day this blog about my worldly walkabout will once again include walking about. But in the mean time I pursue my endeavors to document and save the world, and hopefully make a few bucks doing it.

So far, it is mostly none of the above.

The photo site is bursting with photos, with many more to add. There are two issues there. 1) There are about as man people who visit THAT blog as visit THIS one. And that person isn’t all that interested in buying photos. B) The software that allowed me to actually SELL my photos randomly stopped working. Good thing my fan doesn’t want to buy anything!

My Don Quixote complex is running strong. It doesn’t help matters that I actually made a good call recently, not only giving PAX Nation the illusion of exposure, but gaining a few new members, no doubt as crazy as I am. This has encouraged me to push harder, to the point that PAX Nation has now become my main focus. I still want to wander the world. I just might be tilting with all the windmills I encounter along the way.

I also continue to not write my books. By the time I write The Tao of Picnic, my memory of events might border on fiction … which may actually improve said events. Ironically, much of it is already written, since a lot of it will come directly from this blog. I just need to catch that disease called discipline. Unfortunately to catch something one needs to be exposed to it, and my social circle (which essentially includes me and Brown Dog), is severely lacking of infected folk.

I am not sure if I should be proud or ashamed that I managed to make an update for any interested in this blog into a commercial for some of my OTHER blogs. I may not be infected by discipline, but apparently the advertising bug has gotten into my system. Until the next time folks! Maybe I will have something more interesting to share!

New Technology

I just got the newest toy for the hike!

Since we will be pretty much carrying our lives with us on the trail, weight i kind of an issue. This means if I want to regale people with legends of the trail on a regular basis, I need something slightly lighter than a full blown computer system. Fortunately, the iPhone is coming along anyway, so it should serve, except for one minor issue … typing sucks on it, even for a hunt and pecker like myself.

But tis the age of cool gadgets! I am officially typing my first post on my new, flexible, mini blue tooth keyboard, entirely on my iPhone!

Cool uh?

Sadly, for those who thought they might escape my spam … er … um … posts occasionally, this means frequent posts are still possible … as long as I can manage to keep batteries charged.

That is the NEXT toy.
