Ever since my school district started giving the teachers three weeks off for winter break, I’ve been using the extra week to do some traveling with my dad. Big surprise, we go to Texas to look for traces of Robert E. Howard. This year, I was hoping to post while on the road, but internet service has been pretty spotty.

For those that would like to follow us in our travels, we’re running APRS (Automatic Position Reporting System) via the ham radio. Go to http://aprs.fi and search for km6gf-2. That will pull up a Google map and show you where we were the last time we got a hit (see picture above).
