Preparing to write on the road

This one I got from Timothy Ferriss, sort of.

Knowing that there might be times (even days at a time) where my internet access is sketchy, I've learned to set up an autoresponder when I'm going to be traveling.

Just a little something: friendly and informative (but not too much info). Include a rough idea of where you're going, the fact that your internet access may be hit or miss, and a bit about when you're planning to be "back". I also mention that I'll plan to check email daily if possible, and that I'll respond ASAP.

A reminder for you (thanks, James!): disable the message once you're back home!
