Why forty kay?  It’s about 40,000 kilometers around the circumference of the earth, and I want to use this blog to share my travels along those many kilometers.  Okay, so it’s a few more kilometers than that, but that’s just because the world’s not a sphere, it’s oblong.  The metric system is so logical that someone decided to make a kilometer defined by the 10,000 kilometers between the equator and the pole.  A great system!

Another fun fact is I considered the title of this blog to be “My Plog” because more than a web log (eventually condensed to “blog”), this felt more like a trip log, or Plog if you will.  But I restrained myself.  I’ve been conditioned, especially through school, to abbreviate and condense and lexicate (which is probably also a made up word) whenever possible.
