The easiest way to stay connected to us is to follow our progress on our website. Background information, maps, and photos will greet you. A trip report summary for each section of our hike and a “daily journal” will be posted about every week or so. To read these items go our website www.walkingcarrot.com .
To continue to receive periodic e-mail updates about our journey, click on the “subscribe” button to “opt in” to our email list. You can select the “trip reports” which will occur on average about every ten days and be a short summary of a couple paragraphs, or the “daily journals” which will update on the same schedule but with much more info. You can change your subscription level or opt out at any time. We also have an RSS feed. Or, you can periodically check the website. If you signed up to receive our reports in 2008 and did not unsubscribe you need to do nothing, you will begin to receive these as we post them.
You can email us directly. I will be using a “pocketmail” device; this will be the best way to contact me via email. Using it I can download emails from any “landline” phone (payphones and motel phones.) It is TEXT only, no attachments come through. The address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
Note the similarity to my hotmail address! We will still have hotmail accounts, but they are NOT the best way to contact us. Infrequent internet access means limited access to hotmail, so do not expect a quick response:
If you need to get a (relatively) quick response, our cell phone is the best option. I should be able to check its messages about every week. The number is 208-946-9127.
Letters and packages can be sent to us at one of our mail stops. We will have seven places where we will pick up supply boxes and check for mail. Address packages or correspondence as follows:
Phil Hough OR Deb Hunsicker
(Use BOTH names – it makes collecting mail easier)
C/O General Delivery
Name of Town, State, Zip Code
“Hold for CDT Hiker”
Estimated arrival date (see agenda and add this information)
Be sure to mail things at least 2 weeks in advance, but not more than 4 weeks before you anticipate we will arrive somewhere. We could be as much as a few days early or late; some places have very slow service and the post office is not obligated to hold items past 30 days.
