A cache of old Get in Gear columns

From 2001 through 2004, I wrote a weekly column about travel-related gadges for the Globe. It was called "Get in Gear." It got canned for space in 2004, but was resurrected by a new Travel editor in 2006, when it was renamed "Good to Go." Starting in May 2008, it'll be called "Gearing Up." The name changes, but the focus stays the same!

I stumbled on a cache of old "Get in Gear" columns... click on the "More" (or, on the older ones, the actual title) to see what gadgets were cool way back when!
