Alas, tomorrow morning I fly out for Alaska, to hike the great outdoors for two weeks, and Q will fall silent for a little while. I haven’t decided if I’m going to seek out periodic refuge in Internet cafes along the way; if I do, you may hear peeps out of me. But I do promise photos, photos, photos when I get back… we’re bringing both point-and-shoot and 35mm film cameras. And, of course, my GPS will let me keep track of my routes along the way, so that I can publish maps of where we were. Fun fun fun.


Hi Jason,

I’m jealous. Alaska is a place I always wanted to visit but have not yet managed to do so. Have a great time. I’ll be looking forward to the pictures.


P.S. I don’t know if your paths will cross, but keep an eye out for this guy. He may just make it to Alaska about the time you are there:

I’m with Leos — I’m jealous as hell!

I know how much I’d probably itch to blog after a couple of days, but I personally recommend you stay as far away from technology as possible as long as you can. Alaska for Alaska’s sake.

Have fun!
