Updates February 22-28, 2021

Finally made my way back to Delaware for site updates in an effort to work through everything photographed this past December. It is rare following a roadtrip where I don't end up putting a batch of photos into the queue for long term site updates. So this time I am aiming to get through them all. Following previous updates made two months ago, completed work on the following pages: [...]

Updates January 1, 2021

Happy New Year! Like many other road enthusiasts, we wrapped up a somewhat low key year as far as travel in 2020. This included one major trip and several day trips in state. Personally I finished up the year with one final trip to the Mid-Atlantic over part of the holidays, although my travels once at my destination were somewhat limited. The bulk of the drive north and back [...]

2017 Delaware Road Meet

Nearly one year removed from the first ever Delaware Road Meet, I am finally getting around to updating the Delaware pages on the site with content from last December. The meet took place on December 16, with 19 of us gathering at the Delaware Welcome Center Travel Plaza on Interstate 95 near Newark. After two hours or so of commiserating, divvying out road maps, and consuming Philly cheese steaks [...]

Delaware Highways Revamp

Just put the last of the new photos from Kent County onto the site, rounding out several weeks of page updates and additions covering all Delaware state routes between Smyrna and the south end of Sussex County.

All the while the state budget continues to run at a deficit and the economic recession continues to worsen: Work on overhead traffic signs [...]
