We have moved the blog for this Circumnavigation of the USA

For the next year we will be circumnavigating the USA and I have opened up a travelpod blog for this.

Travelpod blog link is here

Sample of Around USA
Not our actual route tho
During the past 3 years, I have not been totally satisfied with Google Blogger for two main reasons.

1) Despite the fact that Google wants me to set my location for each blog entry, I have not been able to figure out how to show that on the actual blog post.

2)  Google forced me to have comments move to its Google + page which is too much trouble to handle and not everyone has a google Plus account for commentaries.

Two of my long time model railroading freinds have used TravelPod blogging service for their recent trips across the USA.

I also like the fact that I can build an email list of those folks who want to get email updates of new posts. Easy to do.

Both of the above Google blog issues are handled with this blogging software.  two main things I don't like about this software is that I have to write too much for the pictures to be included in the body of the blog post. Otherwise they sit at the bottom of each post.  Not the end of the world but not everyone knows to click on the picture to enlarge it.  I will work on this.  The other thing I haven't been able to figure out is how to add tags.  Not the end of the world.  And I can still post to Facebook for folks.

That said, I have moved over to travelpod for our USA circumnavigation.  All the other links work just fine.
I still might post from time to time here.  we will see.

The new travel blog can be found here.

We do dress up occasionally
