    Yes, U R old especially if U posted this from a computer instead of an iPhone.

    I remember when Facebook first came out. I always wondered why anybody would want to make such fools of themselves online, and using their real (supposedly...) names, too! I have no interest in being contacted with losers from high school I didn't like back then, or seeing pic of your homely offspring, either. I don't care where you went on vacation, or what you ate for dinner last night, and I never will. I never saw a reason to join, and I still don't.

    Shame. Loved your posts and videos. I was riding 8-9,000 miles a year. Understood the dedication. I started to ride a bicycle before anyone wanted to connect or sync with the mundane. We rode to inspire and to improve each other before a "replay."

    Best to you.

    this is just part of living through the time we're living through. i too got on the ... well, not facebook bandwagon, but flickr. i was somewhat addicted to capturing images and sharing them. i sold a couple photos and thought i was was good ... for about a week. now i only take pics of my new bike builds. refurbishing classics still turns me on. photo sharing, not so much.

    To this day, I am hard pressed to leave the house without a camera of some type. For me, it's a combination of documentation and bearing witness.

    Imagine if ancient Egyptians and their slaves had documented building the pyramids on Facebook. Don't be too tainted by much of the banality... it still tells a story for future (and I mean thousands of years from now) generations... where they came from and how they got here. Most of our knowledge from the past comes from scraps of lives (excavating a trash pit to learn how neolithic Native Americans lived), not great documents!

    As Norm MacDonald once said, "It used to be, 'hey ya wanna see a photo of my great-grandfather?' A hundred years from now, it'll be "ya wanna see 100,000 photos of my great-grandfather?"


    Used to go everywhere with my film camera, now I'm too worried about lugging around my DSLR since my husband's got the smart phone on him during every adventure. We can take good photos with that. The GoPro footage takes a bunch of time to upload, especially the longer videos. Could use a more practical "dash" cam for the bike.

    I break for a commercial


    on how we grew up with a lynx thinking it was just a cat on our farm. This is pretty close to the real thing.

    I remember making the decision when we went to Europe, only to take the phone to take pictures. Let's be honest, there isn't really much difference in quality unless you are trying to do something special like zoom or subject contrast.
