Almost there!!! is almost ready to launch. I really want to unleash it soon before this thru-hiking season gets fully underway. At the same time, I want to make sure that when the site launches it functions reliably and all the important features are in place. I'm hoping that the site can go live next week. Fingers crossed.

Fingers crossed, it will launch later this month. I've just gotta hammer out a few more bugs, add a few more critical features, and record some phone prompts. is a free web service for long distance Appalachian Trail hikers. It allows hikers to call a toll free number from any plain old telephone, punch in what mile mark they're at, and record an audio entry. Family and friends (and stranger too) can see a map of each hiker's progress and listen to each hiker's audio entries (and even download an audio podcast to their iPods). Until the site launches, here is a screenshot to give you an idea of what's coming:
