I have added this blog to deadpioneer.com in an attempt to get a little more “web 2.0”, and allow more participation from my fellow road geeks. It will feature pictures and stories sent in by readers, as well as posts by me about updates to the site, highway news, and information on my wanderings. The scope will widen a bit to include any “lost” or disused transportation infrastructure in Minnesota or elsewhere, be it trunk highways, railroads, military roads, county roads, or just about anything you can think of.
In other site news, I’ve done some tweaking to the main page’s format, cleaning up the css code and such. Content wise, I’m working on a major update to the map section of the site (which is still using the old site design), as well as preparing to post some pics sent in previously by readers (pending some permission / crediting info I need to get). Let me know if you have any comments on any of the design updates.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m starting to get major league cabin fever. Another snow storm is apparently heading our way for the end of the week, so that’s frustrating. Hopefully we can get a nice melt-off soon, and I can get out and get some more photos for the U.S. 61 project.
