I found a solution that works pretty well for me. 

I changed the howm-directory variable in howm-vars.el to my shared network/cloud folder on Dropbox.

Then recompiled the file. 

Now I have howm synchronised on about 4 different machines and it works great.

if you don't have a network, simply sync the howm folder with all you data on it betwen machines I think would work.
