Today we drive to DeKalb, Illinois, for NIU's Homecoming. Illinois Route 38 goes by within a few hundred yards of Huskie Stadium where the game takes place. Our hotel is also on the Lincoln Highway.
After the game, we will be going to Lord Stanley's in downtown DeKalb which is also on the Lincoln Highway. We will be seeing the DeKalb Footstompers performing their annual homecoming show, something they've been doing since Homecoming 1973.
So, we'll be doing our Lincoln Crawl today. Sadly, when we were students at Northern from 1969 to 1973, Lincoln Highway was just another road to us. We had no idea as to its significance.
