    I'm going to be trying an experiment in technology and rail travel this weekend, July 1st: I will be "live blogging" a trip aboard the Amtrak California Zephyr as I ride between Denver and San Francisco. For the 30-odd hours of the run, I will post updates and photos from onboard.

    I'll be writing about the experience--the service, what the ride is like, the scenery, and so on--as I travel. I figure railfans will find this fun and different.

    Live blogging has been tried at various events, like conventions and sporting events, but isn't very common on moving vehicles.

    Take a look, if you'd like to see how it goes. The blog site is Aboard the California Zephyr and there is currently a welcome page up.
