While I was on the trip my site and its backups were corrupted. The experience with the hosting company ended my relationship with them. They seemed to have been the cause of the issue, and clueless about how to fix it. After I got back home, I spent several months recreating the posts that were lost and all is well again. I’m leaving this post here as a reminder of that extra work and to take proactive steps to avoid a repeat.

I’m searching for email copies of 9 specific posts from last year prior to the crash.

I am particularly interested in finding the first two, because they are next in line.

  1. Finally a Grizzly?
  2. Yellowstone (2 of 5) – The Tour
  3. Pardon Me, Just Passing Through
  4. Nova Scotia – Cabot Trail
  5. Eclipse over Newfoundland
  6. Philadelphia
  7. Washington DC
  8. George Washington’s Mount Vernon
  9. Shenandoah National Park

If you have any of these, please forward to [email protected].

I’ve managed to recover about 40 others thanks to family members.

Here’s the list of remaining posts to be recreated as I think it stands (not in bold I have an email from before the crash with the text of the post)
