Once we got there, I caught sight of a sign that read "Old Lincoln Highway". A quick Wikipedia search (thank you 3G iPad) and I was delighted to learn that we were on the nation's oldest coast-to coast road. Developed in the early 1900's, it ran from Times Square in New York to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. Cool. The route takes a lot of twists and turns, but we have been following it on and off for days now. We don't go too terribly fast in the motorhome anyway so we don't lose too much time taking back roads. We have enjoyed seeing countless small towns, houses, shops, and giant roadside statues, of course.
