We have really enjoyed reading the journals from other hikers and
thought about having our own home page for next year. We have been
offered the space and someone to maintain it, but at the moment are
undecided about it. We know we will not be carrying a laptop or anything
like that,( noway Steven, am I going to carry a palmtop and a modem, unless
someone comes up with one made of titanium, that weighs 4 ozs or less, 
including all hardware (battery, charger, cell phone , etc)),:). Maybe I
should call Jack Stephenson and see if he has anything in the works.
If we decide to have the home page we would be using snail mail to send 
our journals home and then have them posted. Yes we know this isn't
the most hi-tech or most up to date method, but being the weight
shaving freak I am, it is a miracle that I will even be carrying a
pencil and paper. I follow the K.I.S.S. principal ,which usually works
for me. 
How about the rest of the Class of '97 ? Are you going to do it ?
