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 many 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 here once I get home as I add each day’s photos to my website.  It’s still the same format though:  about a dozen photos posted to Flickr (agilitynut) and a different dozen to these blog posts from each day with a final post summarizing 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).

While on these roadtrips, I upload about a dozen photos each night (taken that very day) to my Instagram account.

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.
