Pictorial Saga Dixie Highway Riding Dutchman 2008
Posted 03 December 2008 - 01:24 PM
To supplement the story elsewhere on this forum, I have put my foreigner's admiration and amazement into a 'subtitled' pictorial saga. You may live the saga through this link:
Subjects addressed include: Road views, Old Main Street, Southern Glory, Tina Turner, Elvis Presley, President Carter, Everglades, Jack Daniel's, The Confederacy and Archeology on Dixie Highway.
For 2009 I am researching what is left of the Old Lincoln Highway. This website is one of the sources - in addition to the site of the Lincoln Highway Association which shows there is historic interest in keeping the memory of that Highway alive. I am not intersted in riding interstates, only the old roads or what is left of them. It is the places and people along the old roads that matter.
The Lincoln Highway may well be the third sequel to Route 66 in 2007 and the Dixie Highway in 2008.

For those who don't know (or don't remember;-), the "elsewhere on this forum" that Harold mentions is here. It contains a link to text postings of his DH ride.
I'm presently a bit more interested than usual since driving the Dixie from Asheville, NC, (made it that far over Thanksgiving) to Miami, FL, is a potential Christmas Escape Route. Even if I do make the trip, none of it will be on a three cylinder motorcycle or in a pink VW convertible and I know I'll be missing out on something because of that.

It appears that you'll find murals, like the one's you showed, all over the place here in the south. I keep finding them on the sides of buildings - as you say "check out the side streets".
So much is going away - yet so much seems to remain.
