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.

NC Bound Thanksgiving 2013: The Drive's A to Z, Music to Cruise By
Nothing like great road cruising music and this is exactly what I had. The Drive had begun this A to Z all the way back on last Thursday and they were planning on finishing sometime today. Around 2,000 songs played during that period. As you can see in the previous post, we were now in the letter "T" when I left: TURN TURN TURN-- Byrds // TURN UP THE RADIO-- Autograph (The things go better with Coke song.) // TURNING JAPANESE-- Vapors (Rats, got it in my head again.) TUSH-- ZZ Top // TUSK-- Fleetwood Mac // UNCLE JON'S BAND-- Grateful Dead // UNDER MY THUMB-- Rolling Stones // UNDER MY WHEELS-- Alice Cooper. //// I left Spring Grove at 8:55 CST, reading at 29.0 mpg, mileage 22,478 and set the trip odometer to zero. Tuned into WDRV right away as the CDs could definitely wait. //// Many of the roads were covered with mud from farm machinery as they were finishing harvest season and we'd had some rain. I noticed someone had made a dinosaur out of scrap metal on Ringwood Road near Miller Road. Gas in Woodstock was $3.25, usually some of the most expensive gas in the area.
