Casey Cooper's Page
This page is a legacy dating back to 1995 when it was still safe to have personal information on a web site. Since we are no longer in those halcyon days, I have taken the long-overdue step of removing my narrative.
Links to my other pagess
I started authoring web pages in September, 1995 and at that time my web site was only one page! Well, not anymore. Have a look at what I have added over the past few years.
Historic California US Highways I will have a travelogue and photographs for each of the 18 US Highways that have existed or still exist in California. A little caveat: this page is a far bigger proposition to create that I had ever thought, and 15 years after starting it, I'm still nowhere near done.
Roads and Highways Pagee I have set up this page to further express my interest in roads, at least outside of US highways. The contents (so far) are listed below:
California Highways In addition to US highways, I've found many other highways in California that interest me including old state routes, Orange County's toll roads, and San Diego area freeways, just to name a few.
Highway 56 Highway 56 is a California State Highway which is to the north of San Diego. It was completed in 2004 and now forms part of the outer freeway loop for San Diego and vicinity. When time permits, I'll add more material.
"Indigestion" 2388 Back around 2001, when there was still a newsgroup for highway enthusiasts (misc.transport.road, or "MTR"), there was a lot written about this oddball Interstate highway, with many strong opinions, mostly against it. I wrote this page in response to what I felt was a bunch of silly nonsense. Put another way, this was my response to the question posed by Zzyzx which is, "What where they thinking?" I as honored when later Zzyzx linked back to this page and called it a "well-reasoned, BBC-like response" that had no place in highway enthusiast conversations.
Road and Highway Links I kept this page for mostly historical reasons since I found it impossible to keep up with all the great highways pages that have come up. I have included many links on this page which I hope will become a useful resource for others like myself who seek information about roads on the Web.
