Now I know why I had so much trouble getting this blog started. My laptop’s hard drive has crashed! The cost of a new hard drive,restoring my files (fortunately, everything I needed was already backed up!) and buying the software is the same as getting a new computer. Not in the budget. Now I am using an ancient laptop that will have to come along on our trip with us instead. At least it is nice and small. We’ll wait for December to make a new purchase, because for now all of our resources are going to travel. Grrr…timing is everything! Will go back to packing now.
As a digital immigrant, and something of a Luddite, I will be struggling along with the technology on this blog, but really want you all to know about our adventures and misadventures as we go on our little escapade. Please be patient! I promise the blog will improve as the trip begins and we find a little leisure time to play with it. IN the meanwhile, thanks for following us–please post comments frequently and let us know how you are doing. With much love from Anita
