December 13 2017 update: Patreon has rolled back their intended payment policy changes. Read their blog here. We may not get a December video out, but will aim for another one early in January. You can also consider our other support options on the rsts11 and rsts11travel support-us pages.

I've been blogging on and off since 2011, and long before that when I was a casual columnist for local newspapers. With a focus on technology (hard and soft tech topics) on rsts11.com, and for 2017 a secondary focus on travel technology and tips and tricks on rsts11travel.com, I've spent my own money or benefitted from investments from employers or organizations I've worked with at the time. However, there's a lot more I'd like to do. And my tech budget has turned into more of a family experience budget lately, so that's where you can come in. 

If you've benefited from my work on the blogs or social media, and would like to help fund future investments for reviews and experiments, I'm glad you've come here. The referral links on the blogs are always good, but you can get a more direct input into what I evaluate through this venue. 

I will also plan to produce a video a month (to start), and Patrons here will get early access to those videos. I may have to stock up on bananas (for scale) but they're pretty affordable. 

Thanks to everyone who's helped me, here and elsewhere, over the past several years of my journey. Here's to plenty more to come.
