Photos Page

Realized it would be easier to add existing shared albums to the site than to re-create them so I added a Photos page.

Added Captain's Log

My project to add transparency to my journal. A place I can make notes about my day, progress, and status as I go through life. A replacement for twitter without the likes, shares, and retweets that inhibit creativity and honesty.

Launched Camping Map

To share, access, and record locations easily I created a map of places I have been and want to go. Truck stops, and rest areas I like that are safe and interesting.

I launched a web hosting company. It is a fully automated system that works well. I can only raise a handful of clients over 9 months and shut it down.

I leave IT to go drive a semi-truck. I do a lot of blogging about places I had been. I made a flash animation to track my routes. It doesn't work anymore, but on the screenshot you can see you will experience most of the US in just 6 months of team driving.
