Blogging Hiatus 2010

Things may get kind of quiet on the blog for a little while. No, we won't be experiencing technical difficulties, but I will be heading off for vacation next week.

I've asked Jeff Selle in our office to fill in on blogging but that will depend on how much time he has on his hands. He's not used to multi-tasking like I do: With one hand I'm posting an article on how every time you start your car engine you're killing a penguin and with the other hand I'm trying to extort some poor citizens into taking part in our Transportation Vision Project.

Depending on how things go, I may do a little blogging 'from the field,' but don't expect things to get completely back to normal here until August 2.

Have a nice vacation, and come back all rested and raring to go again.

Thanks Charles! I looked for a camp for transportation workers to attend in my time off but couldn't find one, so I'm forced to spend the time at the lake instead. Poor me.
