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.

Will your girlfriend go with you on the hike?
She won’t be going with me but she will visit me some along the trail.
I can blog from my iphone, it works ok especially for quick posts. I look forward to hearing about your trip, have always wanted to do that.
David- Thanks. I figured the iphone would work for blogging but didn’t for sure. I’m probably going to go with a phone from Verizon though. They have better coverage and my GF gets a discount through her employer.
I envy you!! I have been dreaming of taking some time off and go off the beaten path. The fear of the unknown always makes me just wish for adventure but never really go out there and actually do it. All the best with your plans….
Jay- Thanks. I’ve been looking forward to this for a long time.
