following is a list of all the trips for which I wrote trip reports.
Sometime after I got my first laptop computer in 1996, I
write trip reports as we went.
first few trips listed are the most recent, and in general, are
relatively short trips. The reports were either written
progressively during the trip, or were written after returning
home, and then published. These trips include both motor home
trips and ocean cruises, along with one trip by air.
following trips were generally longer in duration and often went across
the country, and were taken with my wife Betty, who sadly passed away
on our Georgia/Florida trip below. Generally the reports for
these trips began their life as email reports I would send home to
friends and relatives. I would generally send a report every
4 days. These reports were combined, and on the later ones,
were added, then it was posted on my website.
earlier reports always posed a challenge trying to find a place willing
to let me plug in my computer to a phone line to send the emails.
As widespread WIFI and other Internet connections became more
prevalent, this problem eased considerably. On the newer
I often built my web pages on the road and published them from there,
emailing only the links.
next reports are from the time period before I started including photos
with my reports.br>
took several trips between 1/1995 and 6/1996, but that was prior to my
having a portable computer, and no reports were written.
couple reports are not of trips at all, but chronicle a disaster
at our college town church in San Luis Obispo, and the arrival of our
Foretravel motor home.
