That’s enough for this post. I still have more Washington to go. There are only 15 pages left in the Signs section though which I should be able to wrap up tomorrow.

I’m going to take a few little roadtrips soon which will interrupt those posts with some good news: stuff that’s actually still left.

Happy trails,
dj & the dogs
