A couple of notes.

1999-10-21

No real news here, but I did want to mention a couple things.

John was kind enough to review some of my spelling mistakes for me. I am sorry if my spelling offends anyone. I try to be accurate.

I apologize if I don't get back to everybody right away, if at all. By the time I get my general update pounded out and answer a few of my closer friends/family, I'm ready for bed (or ready for the ground, that is).

Please don't give my email address out to people who don't really want it and certainly don't put it online anyplace. If I start getting spam on my PocketMail, I'll be standing next to the payphone for fifteen minutes waiting for it to download.

Another limitation of my PocketMail is that emails can only be 4000 characters in length, in and out. Nobody has broke this limit yet, except for when they reply with history, meaning my original message is included in the reply. If you know how to keep your email from including the history, please do. Otherwise, it's not a huge problem because the history is usually at the bottom and is cut off instead of the main reply.

I've had many people ask me now if I plan to write a book. The answer is no. I know of at least two books already out there, "The traveling Adventures of Coconut Head" and another one with some feel good title that can be found if you go to the section on bicycle travelogues in Yahoo. There are also the classics, like Marco Polo, for instance. I would like to create my own travelogue web page and add it to the dozens already on the net. It would include all my own updates, pictures, maybe some afterthoughts, and some of your responses. Obviously, I can't do that from the road.

I do appreciate all the responses from people. It's just, like I said, hard to answer everybody individually sometimes.

Thanks for your support.
