In the latest “Road Video” Installment, we travel along Interstate 35 between BETO Junction and US 59 in Ottawa
[EDIT: an update to the gallery software broke the code. I can no longer post thumbnails of photos here]
To finish off November, I present the following photo galleries:
First, some train-watching on 11/10:
And some views from the road on 11/16 on US 71/future I-49.
I’ve added some photos from a little train-watching trip near Quenemo, as well as the new Cable Median Barrier on K-10.
On the Creative writing front, I’ve finished my second NCIS-themed Story: “Tooth and Nail.” For my Fan Fiction page, I’ve split it into two parts.
I’ve been working on a couple of things website-related lately.
First off, I’ve realized I’ve long neglected the License Plate section of Kansas Highways. I’ve updated the pages to reflect the current website layout.
The layout itself has been tweaked a little. For low-resolution screens (read, smartphones) the sidebar normally on the right-hand side of the screen is instead at the bottom of the page.
I’ve also been working on a more creative side. Over the past several years I’ve written a series of Star Trek themed fan-fiction stories. The creative juices for those stories have waned; however, I’ve been, in the past few weeks, found my mojo in the form of fan-fiction stories based on the current TV series NCIS. I’ve finished one story, and am well underway on a second. They can be found on My user page at fanfiction.net. At some point, I will also publish them here on my site.
This is part of a series of YouTube videos that I have taken. This was taken in June along I-35 between El Dorado and Emporia.
Video is just over 10 minutes. The soundtrack consists of two songs: “Starrider” by Foreigner, and the Orchestrial Suite from the Star Trek: The Next Generation episode “The Inner Light”
