Trip Log 2017-09-15 h09

Why “trip log” instead of “blog”?  IIUC, “blog” comes from “we blog” (mangled from “weblog” (mangled from “web log”)) and “web” specifies the location of the writing.  Well, to my ear, that's redundant, like “ATM machine”.  Better to use a word that describes the content of the writing.  I chose “trip” back in the glug days, because then, I actually moved through space as well as time, and enjoyed taking fotos as well, e.g.: 

seen riding cross-country west-to-east

Since this practice (travel, perhaps on two wheels) will likely resume once I find a job, I maintain the name.  In any case, it is valid for at least the time component.
