Our Trip on the Map

That’s it. The sum total of 15 months of travel as illustrated by red pushpins.

Two things stand out: 1) We’ve been a lot of places 2) We’ve only covered about a fifth of the country. I like both points. The first says we’re making progress, the second says we’re in no danger of running out of things to do anytime soon. As eager as I am to see everything, I often think it would be sad to have already seen it all.

I’ve made this map a permanent feature here at Wanderings, replacing the previous “Destination Index” page with a new one called “Our Trip.”  Each pushpin on the map is linked to the blog posts we’ve written for that particular destination. It makes for a compact, and more visually interesting, way to index our writing. Just click on a pushpin and a dialog box pops up with all the relevant information. Use the controls in the upper left hand corner to zoom and scroll the map.

We haven’t written about every single stop, so not all pushpins have links. A few places will never have posts (Freehold, NJ), but most are just works in progress. Things to look forward to.

    I love maps, so this looks great to me. Having the links will be great to for others that are planning on visiting the same locations. Did you know you can change the pushpins to other symbols? Even symbols you create yourself. So, for instance you could have a 2011 pin and a 2012 pin next year.

    Anyway, I love the map.

      Thanks. That was my intent, for folks to be able to use our writing in making their own travel plans. Hopefully this will help in that regard.
