Joins us on Facebook and Twitter

If you’ve used either one of these programs then you know what all of the fuss is about. Facebook gives us a fun place to upload attractive photos and videos that didn’t make it into our catalog or website. (We only have so much room). Fans of Ryder-Walker can also upload their own photos and video as well, and they can start conversations on our discussion board. “What if I don’t want to share photos with the rest of the Facebook world?” Don’t worry, we’ll have an exclusive, password protected Ryder-Walker photo sharing site available this spring. For now, Facebook just offers a fun place to interact with our fans.

The web is quickly becoming a virtual hiking tour of sorts, and each stop from blog, to Facebook, to website, offers a different and unique experience. This virtual hiking tour reminds me of a visit to a cozy mountain chalet on one night and a rustic mountain refuge on the next.

Just log into your Facebook profile and look us up under “Ryder-Walker.” Then click “become a fan.” We just launched our page so stop by frequently for updated photos and video. You can also follow our blog on the Facebook page if you’re so inclined. Now, if we could just serve delicious Italian coffee then we’d never have to leave.

As for Twitter, well, it’s another time waster, but it’s fun time waster. We can update from our cell phones on the trail, and YOU can receive instantaneous text messages on your mobile phone as well, or online. You choose the method of delivery.

Just visit www.twitter.com/ryderwalker to follow us. Twitter provides an extremely quick way to disseminate short messages, called “tweets” in Twitter language. If you’d like to know if somebody’s about to snag that last single room on the High Route, or you’re looking to share a double room to save some money, then Twitter is for you. Imagine the possibilities. Twitter allows us to instantly update our guests on trail conditions, tour status, hiking gossip, and more.

Oh, and one other thing. We will never advertise the names of our guests without their prior consent, nor will we publish photos in which they are easily identifiable unless they give us their approval. We honor the privacy of our guests.

See you on the virtual trail.
