The projects section is a mix of case studies of professional projects I have worked on, that I have permission to write about, and personal areas of exploration on-line and otherwise. Some of these projects may be monetized in some way at some time, others are entirely open source.

Maps, Guides and Logs

One of my greatest joys is being outdoors in a wide open space with nothing made by man in sight. At times, I do have to come back to reality, and occasionally when I do, I will share routes, guides, maps, and from time to time, gear recommendations.

This was kind of a challenge from a friend of mine. He wanted squares for an event that was a website - html, not an image, that could be used on a big screen at a venue AND printed out on a poster OR standard paper all in one url, just works for all of those.
