about this blog

I’ve been posting frequently to this blog since 2006.  It offers a behind-the-scenes peek at the roadtrips that I take to gather photos for my website (roadarch.com).  You’ll find photos here that don’t appear at the website:  things that don’t fit the categories or are not “worthy” of inclusion there.  There are also some photos of snacks eaten, weird stuff, my doggie companions (which accompany me on every trip), etc.

For many years, I only posted here during my roadtrips.  Each night, I uploaded about a dozen photos to Flickr.  After that, I wrote a blog post with another dozen or so photos.  Since around 2012, I’ve been getting more sleep on these trips and posting once I get home.  It’s still the same format though:  about a dozen photos posted to Flickr (agilitynut) and a different dozen to a blog post from each day with a final post with a summary of how much money was spent on gas, the number of miles driven, etc. The photos at this blog are also uploaded to my other Flickr account (roadsidenut).

In winter, I comb my immense website looking at all the map links to see what’s changed (demolition, repainting, removal, remodeling).  I update the descriptions at my website and also post batches of posts here to document these changes.

I hope you enjoy traveling along virtually with us on these trips.
