Life is a highway: Down the Road turns 5

Down the Road, v. 1.0

I started this blog on impulse five years ago this month. I wasn’t sure how long I’d stay with it. But as you can see, it’s stuck.

I gave it the tagline, “Roads and life and how roads are like life.” I had been on a very bumpy road, but I was determined that things would get better and that I would come to enjoy the journey. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, this blog has been all about chronicling that journey.

To celebrate Down the Road’s fifth blogiversary, throughout February I’ll be reaching into the archives from the first two years. I told some of my favorite stories during that time, but I had few regular readers with whom to share them. I’ll dust them off, freshen them up, and share them again. I hope you enjoy them.

My first post was on February 7, 2007. Read it here.
