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.

Speaking of Wisconsin-- Part 2: Out to the Abbey
This past Sunday, we drove US-12 from the house, through Spring Grove and then hit about a mile back-up in Richmond, something that happens regularly on weekends as Illinoisians, the Flatlanders, head for Wisconsin. They are considering a by-pass which would be a great idea. But, Richmond is a very pretty town with lots of antique stores.///
A short drive north of town is where you either get on the US-12 expressway or continue on to Genoa City and get on County Highway H, the original US-12. Co. H is a pretty drive. Once south of Lake Geneva, it now goes to the expressway, but orgiginally entered town on Wells Street, which still advertises itself as two miles of motels.///
Before the expressway, this was US-12 and there were many motels along the stretch to the downtown. Many are still there and several remaining ones show the continuation development of motels from individual cabins to attached units to two-stories./// Are We There Yet? --RoadDog
