I've reached the end of the road -- Route 50, that is. Or if you're traveling east in West Sacramento, the beginning of the road.
I want to thank the many, many planners, planning commissioners, and other individuals who were generous in sharing their time with me -- and hosting me overnight in a number of places. Here are just some of them

So, while ending in West Sacramento, I think back to my first stops on Memorial Day: in Ocean City, Maryland -- visiting with planner Jesse Houston; and then in Berlin with Worcester County planners and county commissioners.
And, of course, I couldn't have taken this time on the road without Betsey & Peggy keeping our office running smoothly in my absence (Betsey's on the left; Peggy's on the right; Lila's in between them).
I'll be back in Burlington, Vermont, next week after taking a few days off in San Francisco with Lila.
When I get back, I'll be adding a few "wrap up" posts highlighting some of what I learned during my six plus weeks of travel.
This will also be the focus -- in a more in-depth way -- of the Fall issue of the Planning Commissioners Journal. If you're not yet a subscriber, I hope you'll take this opportunity to become one (and we'll start you out with our just published Summer issue featuring articles on urban & rural roadways).
Best wishes to all.
