Navigating the Blog

This Blog is the product of my handwritten journal prior to, during, and after the trip.  It is better read in chronological order.  Unfortunately, the program presents Blog posts in reverse chron order (latest to earliest).  So I suggest you scroll down to the first Blog post and begin there.

You can also click on "Archives" or "Essays" if you can find it in the program and see the complete list in chron order.

I  am told this is an easy read and a "page turner".  Enjoy.
