A lot of traveling in 2012

January 5, 2013

A couple years ago a family member asked me how many days a year I travel so I decided to keep track of it for 2012. Here are the number of nights I stayed at a location; total of 142 nights away from home (nearly 40% of the year).

  • Blacksburg, VA (home) – 232
  • JOIDES Resolution – 60
  • ~Puerto Natales, Chile – 31
  • Phoenix, AZ – 11
  • Long Beach, CA – 5
  • Charlotte, NC – 5
  • Calgary, Alberta – 4
  • Punta Arenas, Chile – 3
  • Tabernash, CO – 3
  • Salt Lake City, UT – 3
  • San Francisco, CA – 2
  • Menlo Park, CA – 2
  • Hamilton, Bermuda – 2
  • Columbia, SC – 2
  • Lewisburg, PA – 2
  • airplanes – 2
  • Green River, UT – 1
  • Danville, CA – 1
  • St. Johns, Newfoundland – 1
  • Charlottesville, VA – 1
  • Reston, VA – 1

I’ve got some travel for 2013 already booked — field work, IODP sampling, conferences — but this year should be significantly less time away. But who knows, maybe some amazing opportunity will come my way.

Check out 2012 travel summaries by Georneys and Highly Allochthonous as well (I’m sure there are others who have posted summaries as well, feel free to include links in comments).

    I hope you have safe traveling in the future.
