... funny, another BMW rider, eh?  Yes, I too like the idea of the anonymous
book.  We had something similar on the "audifans" (it wasn't called that
back then) years ago.  Concerns about release of public info made it a
web-based tool where one needed to know a password to gather info ... the
idea never really caught on.  The way things are nowadays I think it would
be even more difficult to revive today.

My suggestion to you is to simply make sure that you know how to get e-mail
access along your way, and should you find that you need help along the way
just post your emergency to the qlist.  Actually I just had a thought ...
perhaps Dan can set up an "emergency" list on the audifans server ... that
way messages from those in need might not get buried amongst the "A4 vs WRX"
drivel.  I know I would sub to such a list ... and if there is any qlister
who was in need of assistance in the area around San Jose, CA they should
feel welcome to drop me a line.
