I blogged more or less steadily at this site from 2009 to 2016. It then became dormant when I started making videos of my adventures. And then in mid-2019, I accidentally let thealoof.com (the domain name where this blog was hosted) lapse because I forgot to renew it. It ended up on an auction site for lapsed/expired domains, and I tried to buy it back, but someone else outbid me for it at something like $350. It took me a while to transfer the site and its contents over to its new home here under the tristanhigbee.com domain, but the old site is now here and fully readable. I consider this an archive, and this site will no longer be updated. All comments have been removed from the blog here, and all commenting is now turned off. If you encounter an error of some sort here, contact me through this form.
