84). My New Website:  www.ExtremeGeographer.com  

In 2013. I landed a computer mapping job in Qatar, a small country in the Middle East, and I lived there for three years.  I moved back to the U.S. in March 2016, bought a new truck, and took an eight-month trip around America.

 

As a geographer, I've always been interested in what I call "extreme geography," visiting geographic extreme points, such as the highest city, the lowest lake, and the northernmost point of any land mass, especially in the U.S.  Therefore, the main goal of my 32,000-mile trip was to visit as many extreme geographic sites in America as possible.  A related goal was to become the first person to visit all 16 extreme geographic compass points in the U.S., such as the westernmost point, the north-northeasternmost point, and document it.

 

I thought about posting my 2016 travel stories on my DelsJourney website.  But DelsJourney is based on HTML and, in the years since I created DelsJourney in 2001, newer and more powerful web technologies have been developed, including a Content Management System called Joomla.  Therefore, I decided to create a new website, which I called www.ExtremeGeographer.com, and which uses this new Joomla technology.

 

I've been posting stories on ExtremeGeographer.com ever since, so if you'd like to know what I've been up to lately, take a look!
