As many of you already know I plan to spend five months later this year doing a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. This means that I will only have internet access about once a week when I get into a town. In order to keep this blog reasonably updated and stay on top of my other internet ventures I’ll be spending a lot of my town time on the internet. I suppose I could just let my sites slide while I’m hiking but that option doesn’t appeal to me. I’ve spent a lot of time building them up and I don’t want to start that process over. Also my sites are generating a decent amount of income that might be enough to cover the cost of my hike.
One solution I’m considering is carrying a phone that I can use to blog. I won’t always have service available but I should have sufficient coverage that I could update my blog most days I’m hiking and then wouldn’t have an overwhelming amount of stuff to do when I got to town. I know there are phones that are capable of being used to blog but I don’t have personal experience with any of them. If any of you have used a phone to blog I would like to hear about your experience and what phone you would recommend. Thanks.
