Subject: Mars, Butler county BBS route
We ran the Mars BBS route today. Nothing unusual although this route is fairly difficult in that most of the route is through rapidly developing Butler county so traffic and loss of habitat is of concern. Most of the route is through suburban developments with some scattered farmland still remaining. In fact, we can get upwards of 20-30 vehicles just in the last 2 stops of the route.
