“I post all my pictures online for my brothers and sisters to see. I get comments on that.. If I go quiet for a while, rarely do they holler, ‘Where are you?’ Sometimes I think, ‘Let’s see how long it will take them’, but usually my sister will respond. She asks if I am alive out there. But I have gone two or three weeks at the most without any contact. I found it surprising how hard it is to find free wi-fi here.”

One thought on “Social media and the family fix

  1. Don’t test me, Brother. You know you are never alone out there. We are watching and waiting, sometimes impatiently. Don’t forget, your 1st ride out, I could track you.
