Trip Prep

2 Apr

I don’t usually talk much about my travels in advance. There’s nothing like announcing to the world when your house will be unattended. Unless it’s one of those rare occasions, like now, when I’ll be traveling alone, leaving Hubby behind with the girls to guard the house.

I’m not really abandoning Hubby for that reason. It’s a work trip.

Since I’ll be traveling to my office, for the first time in over two years, I’ll need my work computer. I won’t feel lime lugging two computers, so my personal computer, which I typically use to create blog posts, will stay at home. So I’ll be relying on my phone to creat posts.

Part of trip prep, therefore, is testing that capability. Readable? That’s all I ask. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

I’ll be at the office on Thursday afternoon and Friday. I’ll be staying in Texas through Monday afternoon. It seemed like a convenient time to explore and soak up some warmth.

My itinerary for Saturday through Monday is up in the air. I’ll head to the beach at some point. When depends on the weather. I’d like to see a bit of Austin, too. And the blue bonnets are in bloom, so I have to hunt out flower photo ops.

No idea how often I’ll be posting, but I’ll try to keep in touch.

  1. If you mean that you posted this with your phone, it looks fine. Text flows around the image properly and text formatting is just as good as from your laptop.

    Safe travels!

    • Andrew, I edited it after I saw the post. The text didn’t wrap and the image was improperly aligned. I’ll use the phone in a pinch, but can fix it online later using my work computer.

      Thanks for the comment!

  2. I like you, don’t usually post when we are going to be gone or blog from the road.

    Post came through just fine.

    Have fun and let me know how you like Austin. I’ve never been there, but I hear it is like the Eugene of the South and a vegan/arsty mecca.

    • Brandy, I tweaked the post afterward. It was clunky. Maybe I’ll eat a vegan meal and pretend you’re with me.

    Usually it is only me that is away as I am the only one who rides, and our son is sort of at home anyway

    Hope you get good weather and find that Beach you were looking for. Is it suntan weather there ?

    Is there just a way to bring an external drive for your photos and plug it into your work computer ? You can do all your sorting and uploading from the external drive, thus keeping private stuff away from work stuff

    Never been to Texas so you’d better snap lots of photos for us
