with John Evans
boy’s Walkabout Blog’ is a bushwalking hobby web log hosted by the
PCUG. It is maintained by member John Evans, a semi-retired baby boomer
with a little spare time to indulge his passions.
“We all know that a little knowledge is a dangerous thing” explains
John, “and I have a double portion. Twenty-eight years in Federal
Government IT and four years wandering around in the bush equip me most
inadequately in both fields, but I do have fun.” Objects such as text,
photos, video, sound, digital map segments and GPS tracks are presented
using a number of simple tools (some of which are freeware), via
techniques such as photo thumbnails, podcasting and Google Earth files.
So if you’re a technophile, come along and see some views of the high
hills of the ACT and, perhaps, pick up some additional blogging
techniques. And if you’re a bushwalker, come along and see how you can
share your experiences with family and friends – fully under your
control and advertisement free.
