    Hi kids,

    Well, we were washed out today as you all know. Who knows if the spongy fields will dry off enough by tomorrow since it's still pouring here now. Oh well.. we'll see I guess.

    Just a reminder that I don't have wifi access like the media folks do so it'll mean a wait for me to drive home to post. Also, by that time, I might not have anything to add so just giving you fair warning now.

    I'll be posting my reports on http://patriotscampreports.com and will be doing daily podcasts from http://patriotworldpodcast.com. If you don't want to miss anything, the best bet is to subscribe to the feeds so that all new content comes to you. You'll still be able to read them here and places like this but honestly, if you don't know about rss yet, you should check it out as it'll make your life so much easier!

    (I use google reader for blog content and itunes for audio but there are other vehicles that you may like instead.) Either way, it saves time from having to keep checking back to sites for content that you enjoy. (Even this site has the rss button up in the task bar so you can subscribe to threads.)

    If you have any questions or need help, let me know. :)

    Go Pats!!

    I do not post too much but I am on here everyday reading what is available. When training camp starts I always go to your posts before anything. Thanks for your continued reports. Even when I go to the practices myself I still read what you say.

    Hi Karen,

    I don't have any questions but I do have an enormous thank you. As a guy who lives in Belize and Cuba, where coverage on training camps is all but impossible, I am so greatful for the time you put into your reports, back in the early days before all the media started posting on site. I can still remember hurrying home from fishing to read what you had to say on the days events. Out of touch with friends and family, and far away from home, you made it all slighly more barable.
    All I can say is thank you.
    Respects,

    Rich

    Not only is Mrs B a yearly harbinger to yet of another (and hopefully successful) Pats season, she's IT savvy!

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Last year you intimated that you might retire from the camp reports but Pats fans persuaded you back. This year my worries around training camp werent to do with any player or signing or media red herring; my biggest worry was that you were not around to give us your wonderful reports.

    You are one of the best things about TC. Please keep them coming

    Thanks Mrs B. too bad the first day was a wash out.

    I'm going down Sunday AM if the weather is OK. Right now the forecast is not looking good. We have a 2.5 hour drive so we will have to decide Sat night.

    How do you like your Dunkin Donuts coffee?:D

    Ok.. for those of you who prefer email, there is a form on the blog page. I got the feeds fixed so you can either subscribe via rss or email.

    Go Pats!

    Sweet! It appears that Ian just posted the feeds over here.. that will save me time and it looks to be done automatically. Ain't technology grand? hehe! We're far removed from the day when the only way for me to post was via email and usenet!

    Sun is out so hopefully it does its job and dries off that field. :)

    I do not post often but am on this site multiple times each day getting my updates. Please keep any camp info coming to the site. I am stuck here in NYC, surrounded by the Yanks and Giants! These reports help keep me sane!

    Thanks again.

    I was thinking about the same thing since last year. If we started up a voluntary collection fund with a suggested amount of $5 per season, I bet we'd get a pretty good total. I believe the Sprint and Verizon wireless WiFi services run around $50/month and require a two year contract. Are there other services that don't require the contract? or that have better pricing? Some people even use their mobile phones as modems. Would it be inappropriate to post an informal poll to see if this idea has interest?
