The Trip

(Project completed: 2011-10)

After a decade of thinking about it and planning, in the fall of 2011 I embarked on a two-month road trip across Canada. The main purpose of the journey was to refresh my memories of the various places I had lived in my life, and re-establish a feeling of connection to them.

I blogged about the experience almost daily, and the calendar entries below link to the blog entries. Most of them include embedded maps which for some reason tend to take a page reload or two to show up.

I've tried to tie the posts as closely as possible to the dates on which the events actually occurred, but realize they were often written and posted up to three days after the fact due to variations in time and network access availability.

Many of the posts include photos, but there are more at my SmugMug site
