Hi Viatologists,

What a great weekend!  Today, the Worldwide Transportation Library (WWTL) is
on-site in San Diego!  Now available are two videos captured this morning:

___

California State Route 163:
http://www.ringcar.com/

As one of the older parkways of San Diego, Route 163 enjoys a ride through
the inner mesas of central San Diego.  The route used to be a constituent of
US Federal Route 395, which was retired in metro-SD due the
freeway-construction boom of the latter 20th century.
___

California State Route 274:
http://www.ringcar.com/

Known as Balboa Boulevard to the locals, this thoroughfare helps inland
motorists travel to the Pacific coast.
___

to the minute w/ our latest videos!

By helping spread the word of viatology in San Diego (...and the entire
globe for that matter), the WWTL provides videos of various highways like
Interstates 5, 8, and 805.  If you like California State Routes 52, 56 125,
or 905, for example, we've got those covered too.  By offering footage of
two-lane streets, multi-lane expressways, and international border crossings
that keep you in touch w/ the global community!

...Stay tuned for more photographs and videos from San Diego y Baja
California.

Cheers,

Route 163 is the first California freeway, the most beautiful part
being the mile or two through wooded Balboa Park.
This section is two lanes in either direction, with a wooded/grassed
center section about 50 feet wide. It had no guard rails until about
two years ago. I was dead set against the barriers, but they designed
them to be far different in appearace to the typical ones.
This delightful section starts about 1/2 mile south of I8 and is worth
the ride to enjoy. Keep an eye out as there may be sudden stops
because people take their eyes away from where they are going.
Well worth the risk.
Balboa Park has some great museums, including the Automotive one where
I volunteer.
The space museum has a rare Blackbird mounted on a pylon out front,
with a amphibian Navy jet on the other side of the entry.
(We (SDAM) have a 2CV)

I was looking for one of several incidents of trees falling on car
(one of which I drove by), but this was more interesting:

Cool automotive museum, especially cool that you volunteer there.

You wanna know what's really funny? CA 274 was decommissioned at the turn
of the century(http://www.ringcar.com/). Never mind that
CalBog's vids are, if I don't miss my guess, within half a mile of one
another. He just jumped off CA 163 at Balboa. Rather like his Ode to a
Sh***y video in KY where the IH 65 can be seen in the distance.

And Kearny Mesa-gah. The most whitebread section of either road.

Predating the Pasadena Freeway's opening by -8 or so years? :D

(I understand the drive is quite nice, though.)

The Cabrillo Freeway(does anyone call it that anymore?) was opened 8
years *after* the Pasadena Freeway(1948). It's an interesting drive, just
the same-similar to some sections of the Taconic or the Saw Mill River
Parkway.

When I wrote to Peter Windsor to ask him if Frank W had been wearing
his seatbelt when they crashed, I also mentioned that I had written to
Autoweek years before that it would be nice to have PW do the F1
reports in Autoweek.
This was to avoid the 6 week wait for it to reach me from my in=laws..
Peter assured me that Frank had, indeed, been belted, and added, "I
wondered who had suggested me to Autocar.
Now I know." (Insert laugh here.) He also mentioned that the (auto?)
biography of Frank was well worth reading.
POI: I was away and missed the last F1 broadcast that James Hunt did,
intending to watch the rebrodcast the next eveningg.
"Out of respect to James", they did not air the re-run.,
