On my feet again after May slowdown

Finally back into normal tennis shoes after being on my back most of May. You would think I would have gotten a lot of blogging done during my down time, but was too caught up in the ceiling paint and other distractions.

Legends of America was a little off as well. Looks like the high price of gas is effecting many peoples desire for travel, however if you live in the American West, this site is perfect for those short little day trips. It's also a good way to see most of Route 66 from the comfort of your computer, and dream about those Old West ghost towns and legends.

May numbers broke down like this.

Legends of America had 468,904 unique visitors, or about 15,126 per day. Those visitors represented 34.8 million hits on the site.

The top five most popular pages visited, with the exception of the main page and search results, are:

Hey Dave. This is Cheryl Could you send me an e-mail? I am in town and was thinking about seeing if you were going to be available for dinner tomorrow (Wednesday) night. Kathy too, if she can! I have my advisor with me as well. We were going to see if you could recommend any good BBQ places we could sample while in town. I don't have your e-mail address on my e-mail when I am not in the office. Kathy, I am not sure if you read these before Dave does, but would you please have him send me a little message?
