I apologize to anyone who was hoping to read about my trip here as it happened. I had a whole chain of uploading links that fell apart when Britekite went down (they decided to do a major upgade right in the middle of my trip) (I won't bother to add link because it is down again).
Selected photos are on my Flicker site in a set called "rt Oct 09". That was the easiest solution while "out there".
I am still working on my journal pages and will post those as they get done.
