Well, when I made this goal in early 2013 I had just started a new job. The company hired me to cover archaeological work in the Gulf Coast region and at the time I was based in New Orleans.
I couldn’t have predicted it at the time, but due to turnover of staff in other regions and my willingness to go where needed I have since worked in 26 states for this company, in more cities and small towns then I can recall all the names of.
I never did consistently blog about it, but I did start an Instagram account later that year and have worked to improve my photography skills. I have since moved to Portland, Oregon and look forward to more exploring to come!
