Road Trip and how I will use Twitter

Duke and I are leaving Sunday for a three week road trip through Idaho, Yellowstone, Bismarck, North Dakota, Manitoba, Ontario, Eau Claire, Wisconsin, Manchester, Iowa, Nebraska and Colorado. I'll be blogging while I'm gone but I will also be using my phone to post regular updates to Twitter.

For those who have never heard of Twitter, is a service that lets you post 140 character updates about what you are doing. I haven't found it all that useful because none of my friends use it.

One thing I have found nice is that I can have my Twitter updates show up on the right side of my blog.  So even when I don't have time to write a blog post I can do a quick Twitter update and then people who read my blog will know what I am up to. Plus I can update Twitter via a text message from my phone.

Another nice thing is that I can follow the Reno Gazette Journal on Twitter and be aware of what is happening in Reno while I am gone.

Anyway the bottom line is that if you are interested in where we are on our trip just watch the top right hand corner of this blog.

  1. Sounds like a great trip. I haven’t been to Yellowstone since ’91 and it was all burned up then. I hope you take lots of pictures, it’d do my heart good to see it back to it’s old self again.
    I know you have a million places you want to see, but if you’re travelling on Interstate 90 south of Billings, Montana, I highly recommend the Custer Battlefield National Monument. It’s right next to the highway and only takes a couple of hours to tour the whole place, including the museum. If you’re not on I-90, it’s probably best to pass it by, since there is nothing else out there for miles, and miles, and miles, and miles.
    Have fun.


  2. Great idea, I think we might do that next time we go on a road trip. Twitter is great, it seemed to explode out of nowhere overnight. It will catch on quickly with other people before too long.
