If you ride with my driver and me, then you already know that we take lots of pictures and we create tribute videos.

We have been experimenting with creating chronological videos to share our rides. These videos will not have music. The purpose is to summarize our trip for the day.

My driver has also been learning to link my website with my Facebook Fan Page. It's been slow, but we've been making progress. We're amateurs at this website and Facebook stuff.

Each night during our mission, we will try to post updates in this section, assuming we have internet connectivity in the hotels. If we can't access the internet, I'll give my mom a bark and ask her to provide a brief update in my Facebook Fan Page.

During the day, our focus will be driving, so we will not be providing updates during the day.
