No switchblades out, I had been thinking about your previous post from a few weeks ago for a while -- it ended up generating quite a lot of reflection, eh? I just threw out a few of the things I'd been thinking of vis a vis. My absolute preference is for reports written during the ride. They aren't as polished but they have that air of danger that a post-trip report never can. It's best to follow these reports in real time versus going back to read them later. Reports written after the fact often hold up better to repeated viewings. That's the polish that real-time reports lack. I plan on posting daily during my ride, pending lack of Internet.
