The ride to Greenville, South Carolina went very smoothly. It was a quick 8 hours and 499.8 miles compared to last month’s excursion to Charleston which took 12 hours because of some narsty traffic north of Richmond.

Greenville is located in the northwestern corner of South Carolina along I-85 (85 splits off of 95 just south of Virginia state line). The area, commonly referred to as the Upstate, is centrally situated between two of the largest cities in the Southeast, Charlotte and Atlanta, and is one of the most rapidly growing areas of the country and the fastest in the state. Located in the beautiful setting of the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Greenville has a thriving arts and cultural community as well as some significant corporate investment in recent years.

During the drive, my favorite idea that resurfaced was geocaching the highway. Essentially, using a GPS device and saving the coordinates of various items one would see along the highway. My favorite items that I wanted to geocache were solar panels on signs, CCTV cameras, locations of overgrown kudzu, construction sites, traffic delays, fireworks stores, porn stores, old abandoned gas stations, and police. The eye-spy bingo game with GPS… sounds like a spatial game.

Today we are going to check out the location of the new Grape at a brand new building right along the Reedy River. Afterwards we are going out on the town to some bars and tomorrow we are going to Asheville, NC to check out the city, promote for Operation Ceasefire, and to perform some poetry at the first Asheville Guerrilla Poetry Insurgency. Should be fun!



Off to Greenville, SC!

This afternoon I embark on a journey with my girlfriend to visit her family and see the location of her family’s new business. I am very excited! I’m bringing two spindles of tunes so the ride should be rockin. I’m going to keep on the lookout for kudzu



Maps of where DC residents voted Statehood Green

: click image below to see the map in full size :

Last Friday night I used the DC Board of Elections & Ethics 2004 election precinct totals to construct maps of where all the votes for Green Party candidates were located. I created a map for Adam Eidinger(above – U.S. Shadow Representative), Laurent Ross(DC City Council At-Large), David Cobb & Pat LaMarche (Green Party President & Vice President), Michelle Tingling-Clemmons & Jay Marx (DC City Council Ward 7 & 2 respectively), and the aggregate DC Statehood Green Party total. I did notice that there are a couple totaling errors, because some precincts have a total that is different than the sum of the rest of the candidates, but I am not about to remake those maps! I haven’t made a “real map” in a long time and even with the slight errors, I am very proud of these. I chose to use Adam’s map above because I was actively involved in his campaign (although he lost, he got more votes than the President Bush did in DC) and feel that I am directly responsible in some way for the turnout above. I wish we would have plotted the locations of where we placed campaign signs! It would have been really nifty to see if there was a spatial correlation between high numbers of green votes and the location of the campaign posters. Regardless, I am looking forward to 2006 :)

After thinking and looking at the maps for a bit, I realized that I didn’t explicitly put the position the candidate was seeking! Oh well…no one paid me to make this map…

White House Sunset

: rendered at 15,000 X 10,000 :

A bit off center eh? Although I called this rendering “White House Sunset,” its really the Convention Center sunset. The most noticable building is no more! The white building that’s repitition is a geographic identifier of where there are lines of symmetry, the old DC Convention Center, was demolished over a year ago and now the entire site lies fallow in the Central Business District of DC. But I had use the name “White House Sunset,” because this rendering has another bent White House.
