It has always been a habit of many people to keep a journal of their personal lives. For the past two years, the Our Progress pages of our website have been a sort of mini-blog where we would post our progress each day of the build season.
Although we did not keep daily records of our progress prior to 2005, we have begun a tradition that we will continue each year after this. Another one of the reasons why we have begun keeping a daily journal of our progress each build season is for other FIRST teams to have an external reference off, to be able to better gauge if they are on/ahead/behind schedule.
