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.

Banjos in Baltimore and TURN in Virginia
From the April 2, 2014, USA Today "State-By-State." //// MARYLAND-- Baltimore: a six-month exhibit about the banjo in Baltimore opened this week at the Baltimore Museum of Industry. Baltimore is home to the first banjo factory in the country in the 1840s. I sure didn't know that. //// VIRGINIA-- The Virginia Tourism Corporation has launched a TURN trail to help visitors explore the Colonial and Revolutionary War-era attractions featured on the new AMC series that debuted Sunday about the U.S.'s first spy ring. //// I am hooked on it already, even though it takes place near New York. //// It's a Redcoat Thing. --RoadDog
