Did you notice the new addition to the blog’s banner / header photo, above?

When I first started this blog, it was meant simply as a place to share stories and photos from CAA trips and events. So we just called it “the CAA blog.”

Over the past couple of years, however, the blog’s scope has expanded so much that I thought it needed a more all-encompassing name; something we could all refer to in conversation. Nearly everything on the blog is somehow related to traveling at the speed of horses walking or trotting: carriage driving then and now, horse-drawn transportation, and travel on early roads … hence “The Slower Road.”

The blog’s official name, as far as WordPress and the various Internet search engines are concerned, is still “The Carriage Association of America.” And the address, of course, remains www.carriageassociation.wordpress.com. But while we’re all zooming around the Internet, I hope you’ll join me in a daily drive down The Slower Road as well.
