Road Trip Logger Available
What is a Road Trip Logger? In preparation for this epic trip I came up with a book for logging miles… and then I added expenses… and then I added photos. I call it the Road Trip Logger. It’s available at Lulu Press. Here’s the link:
Inside you will find 3 pages for each day. Here are descriptions of each page:
- Record your start location, start mileage, date, end mileage and ending location, as well as a description of your expenses. There’s an additional column if you’re traveling with a companion. At the bottom of the expense table you can total the columns and calculate the difference. It also tracks the method of payment (i.e. Visa, Cash, MC, etc.)
- The next page is for tracking your stops. You can record long/lat coordinates, marker mileage, car mileage, and add a description. For example…
- -87.6242613, 41.8795402, 0 miles, 3457 miles, Start of Route 66 in Chicago, IL
- The 3rd page of the day is for logging photos. A description of the photo, which camera use used, starting frame number, your flash card used (I number my cards before a trip), and a check box for when you backup the card. It’s not meant to document EVERY frame shot, but when you start a new location or subject.
There are 87 pages which means it covers 29 days. (Yeah… I was hoping for 31 to cover an entire month, but the printer’s limitations were 87 pages max.)
