The Addendum

New Digs / Good-bye, route99west

For some time now, I’ve had a web site of some form or other on the domain route99west.com. This blog, for example, has sat on route99west.com/addendum/ for something like 5 years, maybe 6. I chose the name for various reasons, including my attraction to Mid Century highway culture, and to the highway of my childhood: Barbur Boulevard, Pacific Highway West, Oregon Highway 99-W, or as it was once before my time and before decommissioning, U.S. Route 99 West.

All things must pass, however. With more and more writing and photography in the works, having a URL of my name became more and more obviously the smart choice, and hanging onto route99west.com became a less and less defensible bit of sentimentality.

So with this post, I am announcing that route99west.com is being wound down, and all its content will now, and likely for a long time to come, be located at alexcraghead.com. This includes The Addendum, now to be found under a new URL, but the same folder: alexcraghead.com/addendum/. The design has been heavily redone as well, with far larger pictures, a slightly slicker gallery function, a bit of juggled organization, and a new section on in-process projects. I anticipate that alexcraghead.com will be a bit more dynamic than route99west.com was.

In the next few weeks, I will remove the old content from route99west.com. The domain I will keep, however — I can’t bear to part with it, though I don’t know what I will use it for. In the meanwhile, update your bookmarks and RSS subscriptions, and welcome to the new site.
