I am sorry for not keeping up the written blog. Getting timely internet access is difficult on our RAGBRAI ride. I can only send 160 letters from my phone and it Verizon adds a bunch of advertising at the end.
I will be trying to keep you up-to-date through my podcast (see the Gcast buttons in the right column.) I can make these updates through my phone. The titles aren't too fancy (only tell you the date) but if you click on the right arrow in that box, it will play the latest. Click on the Posts button and it will give you a list of the podcasts that have been sent.
I will update the written part as is practical.
Hope that this is helpful.
