Well, I got some good news this week from Mark Maynard, the automotive editor of the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The newspaper is still considering whether to continue the Weekend Driver column in the Saturday Wheels section. As you all know, it’s tough times these days for newspapers, so if they’re still thinking about it, that’s great. And as I blogged recently, I’m willing to cut Mark and the paper as much slack as they need.
So a change in the road map of upcoming stories. If the rain lets up this weekend, I’ll be redriving a column that never ran from 2007 — Highland Valley Road — and updating it for posting as promised on Feb. 20. More on the saga of Highland Valley Road later. I’ll give the newspaper first dibs on the Grapevine Canyon off-road story.
So stay tuned.
