DayTripr : Mobile Access

I've added mobile access to the DayTripr trip pages. You could get to the site over WAP before, but you couldn't see the Javascript-based maps. Now any request with a WAP header gets served a special page with a static map image and some link-based navigation controls. To try it out, just visit any of the trip pages using the browser that's built into your phone. Let me know how it goes. If you think it's hard supporting Firefox/IE/Safari/Opera, you should try supporting every kind of cell phone under heaven.

Mobile access to the trip pages isn't really all that useful, but mobile access to the soon-to-be-implemented trip planning pages is going to be a hoot. No more carrying around bulging folders of notes and maps!

So maybe you don't carry around tons of research on your day trip, but I'm thinking it's going to be nice to be able to get to all that info you came across when you were planning the trip during your lunch hour last Wednesday. (A three hour drive and the crab shack is closed for the winter! It totally didn't say that in the review. What about that other place we talked about, you know, the chowder place? Was that around here? What was it called?)
