How to Chess it Up when ya travel...

It is no secret that I am a bit of a chessophile however, I almost had a cardiac when I found a bookstore in some little town dedicated to books and boards and other paraphanelia. Unfortunately, they were closed. :( Also, I started thinking about some of the greenspaces that I passed thinking "Next time I am around this area a picnic basket and a plastic set shall suffice". It was awesome when I found an outdoor set and took some fotos. Before I did, I looked to see if the board was set up correctly and what move should white make next (I know, right?)
I did try to access the site with my mobile phone, however, I could not view the pieces of my online games. Truthfully, this was the first time I'd ever done this and am not as technologically savvy (despite my Geek-Girl in progress status) as I'd hoped for. So, tonight, I shall be reading the forums regarding mobile access and apps so next time I'm away from home I can definately get my game on.
Here's a few pics of a few things that I've done (and a few silly faces I've made)...
