Keeping Dopplr and iCal in two way sync.

I don't know if the following is going to work, but I'm going to try
it. Dopplr allows you to subscribe to your trips in iCal from a link
from the trips page. You can also publish a calendar locally to the
Dopplr servers that Dopplr will pull trips from. I've set up two
calendars in my iCal, one for pushing into Dopplr, and another for
pulling all Dopplr trips from. I hope this will let me add different
trips to Dopplr via different mechanisms, and retain the connection to
the push calendar from iCal without breaking it. That just gives me
more options for getting stuff into the one place.

The best option would be to have complete bi-directional sync, I'm
sure it will happen at some point, but in the meantime I'm not going
to sweat it.
