Keeping friends in the loop...

We are planning on leaving for the Bahamas and Carribean for 6 months on November 1st and are wondering if someone has a "user friendly" way to keep friends and family aware of where we are, what we do... Kind of trip-log, free web-site... that we could update along the way when we have internet access???

Any suggestions

Facebook could also be a good solution if you don't want the world to know what you are doing. You can just update friends.

Re: Keeping friends in the loop...

spot works well sans internet access...push a button and ta daa---or the 10 minute tracking feature of the newer ones(150 dollars, us as opposed to 99usd) plus the activation fees--works for my family.
i also have a website with wordpress, and a fazepoo boat group page....the fb group can be set to be open or private or secret--and members are chosen by yourself. my brother set the group page on fb for me when i wasnt looking....
