Application for keeping a journal

I like "photo dumps" when I look at people's trips. A picture is worth a thousand words. I like CGOAB. If you write about a place you stopped at include the photo. ie that nights campsite or food stops as well as touristy locations.  The photo can bring back more memories of the trip than just your words.

Crazy guy is what I have used for my 6 short tours.  It does take some work, but it has been well worth it.  Friends, family and others, can follow along.  And most important, I have a great record of the experience for years to come.  You can fudge a little on the time commitment while on the ride by putting in the basics and adding to it after the ride.  I currently ride with an iPhone 6s plus.  It takes  pretty good pics and I can do the CGOAB journal with it.  A good feature also is the ability to create voice memos.  Much faster than scribbling a note.  On a rest day or after the ride, I can go through my voice memos (they have a date attached) and eventually create a detailed journal.  So really, I can do as much or as little as I want during the ride.  One additional cool note:  The guestbook portion of the journal is neat to look at to see who is following you.  I have met people from many places around the globe during a tour, who have accessed my journal and communicated with me afterwards.  I think that is pretty neat and convenient.

And I just got an e-mail from the folks at RideWithGPS.   It appears they have a new Report feature. At first glance, it looks to be available only on the desktop version, not on the Android phone version.
