Frequently Asked Questions

What is this Website about?

This website is about Nicoline’s and Eric’s 2015 trip to Alabama, Arkansas and mainly Oklahoma. We have started preparing for the trip which will take place in September.

What is the main feature of the site?

The main features is the Trip Diary section. In this section, we will keep an on-line diary of our trip. From the diary, we will have links to photos.

How often does the site get updated?

Prior to the actual trip, we may occasionally update the website with progress about our preparations. While we are on vacation, our goal will be to relax and enjoy, not to trek from one Internet hotspot to the next one.

Having said that, we expect to have Internet access regularly, and will try to update the website at those times.

If you want to follow us more closely, you can sign up to get an email notification when the site gets updated. Just log in and select the Send me an email notification option in your Preferences.

Do I have to register to see the site?

No, the entire site is visible to everyone. However, there are advantages to registering (which is free, and easy). When you are registered, you can leave comments. You can also sign up for automatic notification of a site update.

Can I leave comments?

Definitely! To leave comments, you need to be logged in to the site. Just click on the Add a Comment link below a diary entry and start writing.

Comments are available for the diary entries, not for the photos. Photos are intended as illustrations for diary entries, so please give your comment in the trip diary.

When we have Internet access, we will not only update the website, but also download all comments. We won’t feel out of touch when we read your comments!

Can I “like” or “plus” something?

We’re not facebook or Google, sorry. If you enjoy something we wrote, please tell us in a comment!

How come the time of some postings seems wrong?

The website runs in the U.S. Eastern Time time zone (New York, Washington, Baltimore). All posting times are in that time zone. In fact, when we’re on the road, we will keep our laptops on Eastern Time to prevent synchronization problems.

Most of this trip will be in the U.S. Central Time time zone, which means we’re going to be one hour behind Eastern Time. So our posts may seem to be off by an hour.

On the other hand, the timestamp for the individual photos should always be in local time (we don’t want a Sunset at Pikes Peak photo supposedly taken at midnight).

Do I have to register again if I registered for your previous trips?

If you registered on the “Maine” website for our 2013 or 2014 vacation, you should still be registered here. Send me a note if you don’t remember your username or the email address you used. If you know your user name but can’t remember your password, please use the Password Reset function to request a new password.
