Exploring Arizona’s Abandoned Highway 60 and the Claypool Tunnel
An evening pause: Better late than never. I forgot to schedule some pauses. This one is fascinating because of the history of technology it reveals.
Hat tip Diane Zimmerman.
Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!
From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.
Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.
“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.

–WOW. Good Stuff! I just watched this clip a few days ago! Was looking at route 66 videos and YT sent me down a rabbit hole.
This guy (“Sidetrack Adventures”) has a lot of cool stuff!
The day I sent this video to Bob, I spent the afternoon looking had videos from Sidetrack Adventures. Steve, the host, not only shows very good GoPro and drone video of the historic places, he does his research and makes interesting presentations about the sites.
I had discovered this guy a few months ago and always like his videos. I had not seen this one before. Thanks for posting.
For some excellent “driving videos,” I highly suggest “TheHighwayMan,” who can be found at https://www.youtube.com/@cochrab/videos
He has a good mix of locations, sound-tracks, and on-screen factoids.
