Jaime’s KCLS Jaunt: By The Numbers Summary

King County - All Points Visited!For me, part of the fun of any travel is all of the research and planning that goes on before I even step out of the front door!  I took a look at my trusty spreadsheet to see what “interesting” facts I could share about my year in library travel.

Barely Basics  
Places Visited: 51
Distinct Trips: 29
Average Libraries/Trip: 1.76
Approximate Miles: 604
Carbon Offset Donation: $10*
Dig in for more Details  
Solo Trips: 12
Trips with Others: 26
Trips with my Mom!: 1**
Library Staff Met: 31 (at least)
Photos Taken: 537
Quirky Counts  
New Breakfast Places: 6
Parts Wheelie Lost: 2***
Pies Purchased: 2
Round-trip Ferry Rides: 1
Closed Libraries, Counted: 1****

A good spreadsheet goes a long way!


p.s. It turns out I have one more Jaunt blog post to come…saying “Thank You” will take paragraphs!

*More than enough.  604 miles is less than $2.
**It had been…decades…since my mom was in a library.  Seriously.  She was amazed at the DVD collection.
***Wheel and water bottle!
****Redmond Ridge.  But I’ve been there before.
