This post is an explanation of the reasoning behind the layout of my blog, and in particular, the post of Grand Canyon photographs.

Last week I had a discussion with one of my friends concerning my blog. I was curious about his initial experiences and his thoughts concerning the layout and content. The feedback that I got was humorous and valuable, especially considering he is a pretty good representation of the general web-surfer that may not yet be used to things like blogs and RSS feeds.

It turns out that he didn’t realize that each post on the “home” page was only an excerpt. He thought that I only had four photographs on each post and hearing his explanation, I can’t say I blame him. I’ve been running a LightBox plugin that allows the viewers to flip through all the pictures that are displayed on the loaded page. Since the “home” page displays multiple excerpts of my most recent posts, the LightBox plugin would navigate through each one, mixing posts together. This isn’t a shortcoming of the LightBox plugin that I’m using, more just an undesirable characteristic based on how I was posting my photographs.

Road Trip 2009: Seattle

Back in Winter of 2009 I went on a road trip across the country, from Boston to Seattle. My friend Erik Macchi accompanied me, and in 6 days we pushed 4500 miles through several regions of the United States. The road trip served two purposes, as a fun endurance vacation across the country and also part of the process of relocation. As such, there was about 800 pounds of luggage in my poor Mazda RX8.

Obviously the fastest and most direct route would be to just hop onto Interstate 90 westbound and ride cruise control until our eyes glazed over. That’s a pretty dull trip and I’ve already done that before. Sure, there’s lots to see and nice places to stop at, but as far as driving is concerned it’s not so great. The real reason though for not taking I-90 was because it was winter time, we were traveling in a little sports car with bald tires, and the last thing I wanted to do was be stuck in a winter storm.
