On the Kansas Highways front

On Memorial Day, I took a road trip to explore a couple of roundabouts, as well as parts of the new US 69 freeway in Linn County.

As a Consequence of my raodtrip, I’ve also updated the US 69 exit guide to reflect the actual signage out in the field (I wasn’t *that* far off regarding the final segment of the freeway between Fort Scott and Kansas City.

I also added a conceptual exit numbering scheme… the new 2009 Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices mandates that all major freeways have milepost-based exit numbering.

In addition, over the past week, there were protests over the removal of a Beaver Dam in the Baker Wetlands done to prevent 31st Street from losing integrity. Therefore, I wrote a Letter to the Editor:

31st Street Decay

Free State Class of 2000 reunion

Last weekend was the Free State High School class of 2000 reunion. Since I was a friend to quite a few in the class, I was welcomed to “crash” the party.

I typically post the entire set from reunions, therefore, I won’t show the thumbnails in the blog post. Here, however, are the links to the individual photo pages. There are 30 photos to a page, and most of the photos are what the camera took, with no retouching. I may edit out some pictures later.
