Hello to the over 3,100 subscribers to our RoadNews
This list has grown rapidly during the past several weeks
with 500 new subscribers since my last newsletter.
I think the reason for the rapid growth is the message at the end of our videos inviting viewers to
subscribe. These videos are viewed by you, the subscriber,
or found on our web site then seem to be forwarded around to friends and then
further passed around from there. We hear from people daily who found
us this way; from a friend of a friend. We also post our videos on YouTube and other similar
sites but the views from these third party sites is minuscule in comparison
to the direct downloads from the download links. You can find all of our
download links, including YouTube's at:
http://www.downtheroad.org/video. The results of all this viral spreading
of our videos is that each video is
downloaded many thousands of times each month - and growing. Welcome to all the new subscribers I hope you enjoy
our RoadNews Newsletter!
HOW DO CINDIE AND TIM STAY MARRIED
AFTER YEARS OF 24/7 TOGETHERNESS?
This was never a question I thought much about until now.
Recently we were interviewed by a journalist writing for
the Colombia News Service. The story is about how couples on
long trips get along and stay together through the hardships of travel.
This story was syndicated and ran in several major metropolitan newspapers.

AUSTRALIA #1: THE INCREDIBLE WILD LIFE AND
BICYCLE TOURING ALONG THE GREAT OCEAN ROAD
I am a little behind in releasing my videos about our
travels in Australia. Below is the latest video from our "Video
Postcards from DownTheRoad.org". It is about our first couple months of
traveling through the Australian states of Victoria and South Australia.

Next I will release a short Tasmania
edition then I put together a special longer
five year recap video. We can not believe that March 30th 2007 will mark our
5th year of living nomadically, internationally, sometimes aimlessly on
bicycles. It seems the years pass by quicker than the kilometers.
WHY NO DownTheRoad.org REFERENCE IN
A long time subscriber to the RoadNews Newsletter sent me
an email asking why the famous online, user generated, encyclopedia called
Wikipedia does not list us with the other bike touring web sites in their
section on bicycle touring. We get very little online time so other
than being aware of Wikipedia we have not had the time to explore it in
depth. We did look into adding our web site and learned that we can
not add ourselves. This has to be done by someone else. So, we
are asking for a volunteer who understands the inner working of Wikipedia to
add us to all appropriate categories.
