Wow, nice park. Only got a glance of it, but on two very nice days in spectacular settings. You should go up there for a visit.

If red and you have a microphone on your computers, you should google TeamSpeak, download the necessary version and find a channel you can both join. Basically you get to talk to each other over the internet, for free. It's pretty slick and sounds like it doesn't use much bandwidth so it might be suitable for dialup modem users. Okay, got off my lazy butt, here's the web link:


It's an open channel. Not sure on server software operation, the only channels I've been on have been game oriented, with someone else letting me join. I imagine you could password protect a subchannel, like I had used, and thereby have a private conversation. After setup, it's simply a couple of mouse clicks to access each time. It's freeware too.
