old Rte 66 roadbed

A portion of the old Route 66 roadbed crosses our survey corridor. Interestingly, it shows up on Google Maps, even though it’s not an active road and a lot of it it destroyed and overgrown. We recorded the location for the client and took a few photos.
I uploaded a few more pictures from the project so far onto my Flickr page.
Woke up this morning to heavy rain and thunderstorms. Right now it’s sunny, but we’re waiting until noon to give all the storms a chance to pass or break up before we try and go into the field. I drank too much coffee to take a nap, so I’m finally getting to catch up a bit on photos and blog. I’ll probably even tap on my thesis a little bit. And this is all at least partially on the clock.
I don’t think I mentioned that I got a performance review right before we left for Oklahoma, where I got a bit of a promotion and a small raise. I’m now officially a crew-chief level archaeologist, rather than a senior field tech. A lot of added responsibilities, but I’m happy.
