The New York Times Travel section wrote about driving the Old Lincoln Highway. It is one of the country's oldest roads from before the era of interstates, like the famous Route 66. The Lincoln Highway runs from East to West, from New York to SanFrancisco. The author says, "Though today romanticism surrounds the Great American Road Trip, few people spend 11 days driving a back road at an average of 55 m.p.h." But that's exactly what we do when we take off for long trips in the motorhome. We prefer to find two-lane highways just off the interstate and cruise at the fuel-efficient speed of 55-60 mph through small towns and scenery. That's how we came to find ourselves on the Lincoln Highway as we headed west from our home in Pennsylvania. We noticed the signs and Googled, to learn with delight the history of the road we were on. We followed it for days, as far as Wyoming and shared many of the impressions described in this article. Enjoy.

Keeping fit while traveling can be challenging, with all of the eating out, bonus ice cream cones. One of the reasons we love traveling in the motorhome is the chances it gives us for long walks around the campgrounds (to check out everyone else's gear) and to take some of our fitness gear along. One of my favorite things to do is to get away from the family and find a beautiful place to lay out my yoga mat for a few minutes. I have a few routines I can do on my own or sometimes I find an iPhone app to lead me through the yoga poses. This is one of my favorite spots.
On a recent long-haul trip south, we stopped in the motorhome overnight at this North Carolina Walmart. The flowers were blooming, the landscaping was lovely, the shopping was convenient. It doesn't get any better than this. Finding, registering, and parking in a dark unfamiliar campground late at night can be just too much for a quick sleep and go. We are grateful for Walmart, Cracker Barrel, Flying J Travel Plazas, and the other companies that welcome RV'ers for overnight stops.
