Some wags say the camel is a horse designed by acommittee. The same might be said forthe Jefferson Highway! This long forgotten but now much cherished classic American highway once stretched from the pines of Manitoba, Canada to the sultry palms of New Orleans. My guest is Mike Conlin, a map maker by trade, who is the president of the new Jefferson Highway Association with a passion for reconnecting this legendary thoroughfare. The association's inaugural meeting was chronicled in the spring 2011 issue ofAmerican Road Magazine. By the way, did you know you can travel the entire 2300 mile (3700 km) length of the JeffersonHighway in the same time zone?
