They're Talking About the Lincoln Highway Centennial-- Part 1

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the Lincoln Highway and even as I write this, two convoys of mostly classic cars are making their way from San Francisco and New York City with a destination of Kearney, Nebraska, June 29th for a big celebration in the town, after which, the Lincoln Highway Association will have their annual conference in the city for the next week.

My buddy Denny is on the east convoy, leaving New York.  I am hoping to maybe meet up with him in Dekalb, Illinois, and accompany the cars to Iowa (or even maybe Kearney).

I have both a Yahoo and Google alerts for the Lincoln Highway and there has been plenty in the press, expecially towns through which the convoys pass and, of course, Kearney.  Tomorrow I will starting writing down some of the headlines and sources, but right now I have some items that need planting before the next round of storms roll in.
