January 5, 2002

I have (slowly) been working on uploading my pictures from the archives… I’m now up to January 2002. This set of spirit squad photos was taken January 5th, at the first KU Women’s game of the (calendar) year.

A very late Amtrak

Bad news for Amtrak travelers on the Southwest Chief means good news for railfans like me. Due to an incident that sidelines the initial locomotive consist, the train had to be towed back to Chicago, where they started it again, 12 hours late. Therefore, instead of going through Kansas overnight, the train would go through during midday. I also have a couple of photos of the new dog and a new interchange under construction on K-7 at Johnson Drive.

November 2008 Roadtrip

I took a roadtrip to check on the progress of the new US 69 freeway under
construction in Linn County. Nothing special, I took 69 down to the north
end of the existing southern freeway, then turned east on the back roads to
US 71, returning home via 71. On the way to 71, I found an old truss
bridge.

In addition, I have updated the US 69 and US 71 exit guides to reflect what
is signed on the road and what is being built.
