Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

US-14 Vs. US-12 IHSA Football Showdown
I started this little showdown between high schools in my part of the state, the northest, last year. Same rules as the Lincoln Highway and Route 66 apply. It's is essentially last-man standing wins. Going into week one of the playoffs, there are 7 teams for US-14 (called Northwest Highway around here) and US-12 (called Rand Road) has 4. //// US-14 NORTHWEST HIGHWAY: 8A: Platine-- Fremd and Barrington // 7A: Arlington Heights-- Hersey // 6A Crystal Lake --Prairie Ridge and Crystal Lake Central // 5A Woodstock // 4A Harvard. //// US-12 RAND ROAD: 8A Palatine-- Fremd // 7A Lake Zurich and Arlington Heights-- Hersey // 4A: Richmond-Burton (our hometeam). //// RoadDog
