The Road Chose Me Volume 2 OUT NOW!!
The Road Chose Me Volume 2: Three years and 54,000 miles around Africa
I´ve often referred to my little Dell Mini 9 as the best gadget I´ve ever owned and since it has a Solid State Hard Drive (SSD) and therefore no moving parts, I have always thought of it as pretty much indestructible. Hmm.
I plugged it in to charge in a stupid spot and my friend tripped over the cord, pulling it down about four feet onto the solid concrete floor. The screen is smashed so that it´s completely unusable, although the rest of the system seems perfectly fine. I was a little upset when it first happened, but got things quickly into perspective when I realized I am perfectly fine and it´s nothing more than an inconvenience. A new screen is only $35 USD on eBay and not hard to swap out, it´s just the logistics of getting one down here.
I had a plan A to get one today, but that didn’t work out, and plan B has me getting one in about 3 weeks, the next time I know exactly when I will be where. Until that time I´m going to keep updating the website from internet cafes, although unfortunately there is no chance the updates will be as substantial as in the past. As yet, I´m not even sure I´ll be able to post any photos at all.
You can be certain I am continuing to adventure, take notes and take a ton of photos (there are already 150 on my camera now). When my laptop is fixed I plan on posting full updates with stories and photos for the time lost so you can all share in the adventure as much as always.
I hope you´ll stick with me and continue to share while I sort out this technical problem
