April 2019: ROUTE 36 – NEWSLETTER #5

2019-08-23T17:35:13+00:00By |Newsletter|

During the first quarter of this year I’ve been putting finishing touches on my guidebook. Now we’re into production and printing, leading to promotion. A few notes: We should have books by the end of May or early June. The guidebook includes 200 pages of state information, 60 pages of background history, and some 160 photos. [...]

December 2018: ROUTE 36 – NEWSLETTER #4

2019-08-23T17:20:54+00:00By |Newsletter|

Figuratively and literally, I’m nearing the end of the line with Route 36: Ohio to Colorado—America’s Heartland Highway. After spending months working on the states from Ohio to Kansas, I’ve zeroed in on my home state of Colorado. The writing will be essentially done by the end of the year. Production and promotion lie ahead in 2019. [...]

May 2018: ROUTE 36 – NEWSLETTER #3

2019-08-23T15:21:37+00:00By |Newsletter|

I’m back from several weeks in the Midwest, starting this trip at the beginning—at Uhrichsville, Ohio, where Route 36 starts its east-west journey just 50 miles from Wheeling WV. A main “takeaway” from this trip: Few people in Ohio, Indiana, or Illinois, are aware that US Highway 36 extends some 1400+ miles from Uhrichsville to Rocky Mountain National Park and is the historic mid-section of what was once known as the Pikes Peak Ocean to Ocean transcontinental highway. Perhaps my guidebook can help change that situation. [...]

March 2018: ROUTE 36 – NEWSLETTER #2

2019-08-23T15:20:57+00:00By |Newsletter|

A “Perfect 36”—What’s the story behind this curvaceous image promoting Route 36? (It’s a “teaser” to get you to read to the end of this newsletter.) This is the second of an occasional blog to keep you posted on the progress of my journey along US Highway 36—a much-neglected historic and scenic by-way through Heartland America. [...]

November 2017: ROUTE 36 – NEWSLETTER #1

2019-08-23T15:19:28+00:00By |Newsletter|

This is the first of a very occasional newsletter to keep you posted on the progress of my journey along US Highway 36—a much-neglected historic and scenic by-way through the Heartland of America. Over the past year I’ve met a lot of people out on Route 36, especially in Kansas, Missouri, and Illinois. I’m working my way eastward from Denver, though the guidebook will be organized from east to west—the way American settlement moved. [...]
