I am testing this new Samsung SGH T369 cell phone to determine if it will work for my journal here on postholer. I am hiking from Springer mountain Georgia to Mt Katahdin Maine. I am going to miss the easy keyboard of the Peek device but also gain a lot of functionality. I sent a photo taken with the camera on this phone! Actually thats not entirely true. The photo was taken with the camera I used on the CDT. What I did was put it onto a micro SD memory card using an adaptor. Anyhow, due to recent changes my Peek has become a brick so it was neccesary to find a replacment device. This camera is not so bad at 1.3 megapixels. I just discovered I can take photos on my digital camera on a micro-sd card in a full sized SD adaptor. Then put the Micro sd card into the memory slot on my phone. Then when I make a journal post I can select pictures on the memory card. This way i am not limited by the 1.3 megapixel camera of the phone. The long and short of it is that I will be able to send full resolution photos along with my journal posts for the AT!
Well it seems like it all is working! I will begin hiking the Appalachian trail about mid-March 2011. At this point I plan to go Northbound and i will begin on the approach trail to Springer mountain. I guess there is some kind of controversy about whether folks start there or on the mountain. I just know Shootout told me not to miss the approach so I wont.
Anyhow all this belongs in a new journal i suppose. So look for a new Appalachian Trail journal to begin soon on this site.
