Retro-Blogging the Transit Trip

The road to Hell is said to be paved with good intentions. I had every intention of posting daily updates on my Transit of Venus expedition. Hmm — could that have been Infernal Flames flickering on my blog-road? Sorting and processing hundreds of photos a day on a netbook proved to be a bit more of a task than I’d imagined.

To be fair to myself, I wasn’t able to post at all on my first two days in Hawaii. The promised in-room internet for my Honolulu hotel wasn’t working, and I suppose getting maintenance done over the weekend isn’t easy anywhere.
So, for anyone interested in after-the-fact blogging, I’ll be posting a series of more detailed missives on my Hawaiian Transit of Venus Trip.

And now, for a shameless plug. Fear not — this is only one you’ll see here. If you like my Transit of Venus graphic,  you can get it on a T-shirt or sweatshirt.
