Triton survey: When you travel, do you send postcards?

CHECKING THE TIDE: When you travel, do you send postcards back?
In this speedy age of Internet and electronic communication, we wondered if yachties today ever put pen to paper anymore. With all the spectacular places yachts go, friends and family would surely be interested in postcards, but only one of the crew we spoke with yesterday actually writes and sends postcards.
A few others use apps that will print and mail postcards made from their photos and words, but those aren’t handwritten, so we didn’t count them in the “yes” category. Either way, speaking as a land-locked person, it’s always nice to get mail.
