I'm old and yet I'm new at this stuff, so bear with me.  This is a test!  Sandy, Laura and I are traveling to Israel, Jordan and Egypt in December and January.  Actually, the plan is to be in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve and hopefully floating down the Nile on New Year's Eve!  Trip of a lifetime and top of the bucket list!  I have joined TravelPod which will publish our blog as we go. If you care about our travels, read 'em...if not, delete ' big deal...belive me, I'll understand.  

We've got our Passports.  We've got our Visas.  We have a great itinerary. Looking forward to it! 

All I want to know now is did you receive this email?????

Love Ya!

Dave, Sandy and Laura Colee

Congrats on the blog. The trip sounds fantastic. Looking forward tintype posts.


Dave - got your post so you know it works... Nice to see old dogs learning new tricks!!

Your trip sounds like a real adventure - I am sure it will be wonderful and I await hearing about it via this port. I don't do much with Facebook - too many people think I give a crap about their Farmville, egg hunts or mafia wars. So, Post your adventure here and I will travel with you in spirit!

Don't breathe any dead Pharoah dust.

Hey DB, even I figured out how to respond. By the way, I was talking to some friends that just returned from Israel. When traveling down the Nile, do not eat the lettuce and make sure to drink bottled wate. More than one person has gotten sick on this part of the trip. Crazy but they said it was so nice they would do it again even though they got sick.

Danny K on

Have a great trip. We'll hold down the fort for you.

Who is going to help Steve at the basketball games? Can he do it alone?

Curt on

Can't wait to read the posts! Do they let you hit wedges over the pyramids? :)

Did you ever figure out your internet connection options for blogging while on the trip? I assume your best option is to call your Ipad internet connection vendor & ask about international pricing & availability.

Let me know if that doesn't get you what you need.

Connie Bryant on

Can't wait to read about your adventures!

Jeff Noak on

test worked, Can't wait to read your adventures.
