🛣 Changes to the California Highway Website covering May July 2022

(1/1)

cahwyguy:
With the highway headlines for July are out of the way, I could finish up the highway page updates. Here are your updates to the California Highways site covering the months of May, June, and July. Next up: Editing episode 1.02 of the podcast, so go out to https://anchor.fm/caroutebyroute or https://www.caroutebyroute.org/ and listen to Ep 1.01. Let's get the number of listens higher than for the sample episode. Hint: It's a great thing to listen to as you're exploring the state's highways. Stay cool and safe out there (and dry, depending on where you are). Oh, and ready, set, discuss.

As I note in the introduction:

This update covers the remainder of May that wasn't covered in the April update, plus June and July. This took a bit longer, because I've also been working on getting our new podcast, California Highways: Route by Route up and running. You can visit the podcast's forever home at https://www.caroutebyroute.org/ , or the show's page on anchor.fm. A full sample episode and the first full episode (covering the history of California Highways through 1920) are already up. The next episode will be up shortly after these updates. Subscribe to the podcast in your favorite podcasting app or by using the RSS feed. Just search for "California Highways" and look for our logo. The podcast is a joint effort between me and Tom Fearer of Gribblenation. Our plan is to include interviews in each episode. Episode 1.01 includes an interview with Adam Prince on the Good Roads movement, and episode 1.02 will feature Joel Windmiller of the Lincoln Highway Association on the initial set of US highways in California. We're looking for interviews for the remaining set of Season 1 episodes, as indicated. If you've got a lead on a speaker, please let me know.
