Cross-Country, by a Road Less Traveled - NYTimes.com

     

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.
