John, when sending Emails through the ranch site to the ladies be aware that there is only a couple of computers for all of the ladies to share. Finding free time to answer emails and computer availability is a rarity. Like Alex said, I find communicating through twitter is a whole lot easier for them. They do not get wifi service, so service through cell service is the only way. Very rarely will they be without a phone. If you need to discuss subjects privately, follow her and send her a DM.
