Transcription service wanted

TypistI’ve decided to outsource the transcription of my Lewis and Clark Bicycle Tour journals. But rather then mail my precious notebooks to some seedy service in Bangladesh, I’m going to keep this job in-house. Hence, I now appeal to the American public and jaymekohler.com readers nationwide.

I have two journals that need typing. My first journal was written in a standard 8 1/2 x 11 spiral bound notebook. I’ve already typed over half of it, but twenty-five pages, front and back, remain. My second journal was written in a smaller 5 x 7 notebook of which I haven’t even started. That journal is thirty seven pages front and back.

Turnaround time, payment amount and method, and detailed instructions will be discussed as needed but all in all the process is pretty simple. I mail you the journals. You begin typing them up and email me individual entries as they are completed so I can get them posted online. When you finish, you mail the journals back to me. I require each entry be typed in separate Microsoft Word document (.doc) and the naming convention for each file be:

{Day} – {FromCity, State} to {ToCity, State}

An example entry is
12 – [7mEo] Ovando, MT to [9mWo] Simms, MT
although I renamed the file for easier downloading.

Please direct questions you may have via the comments section of this post and I’ll respond accordingly.

The author.Born in the year of the Dragon, the author grudgingly accepts the fact he has too many interests and not enough time. A cyclist as long as he can remember, an avid yet inconsistent writer since age eleven, and a U.S. Marine since age twenty-one, the author also adds computers, snowboarding, and motorcycles to his list of interests. Incidentally, he is aware of his inability to make a living from any but the Corps. The author accepts this as fact and remains optimistic. Feel free to drop him a line.
