2019 is literally around the corner – mere hours away. That means Route 1 Reporter also turns six months old!
Technically, Route 1 Reporter is a little more than six months old. The site was unofficially launched in the closing days of May 2018. At that point, I was still getting the site up and running. As a result, I consider June 2018 to be the site’s birthday. Route 1 Reporter continues to be on holiday slowdown until after New Years Day.
