Deep in the bowels of my bucket list are a series of road trips I want to take that retrace the old US highway system. I even have a dream about writing a guidebook on the subject.
Of course, traveling Route 66 is up near the top, but it is not the only byway that is worth riding. US 6, the Grand Army of the Republic Highway running from Provincetown, MA to Long Beach, CA, is up there as well.
The short stretch of the old highway that I drove – from San Fernando, California to Palmdale, California – evoked an epiphany. If you want to see America by road, do it on a road much-less traveled. The history, culture, and beauty left wantonly bypassed by the brilliant but artless Interstate system begs for rediscovery, appreciation, and chronicling. Plus, the food is better, and the people more real.
I figure a week or ten days should do it.
Working on something for work. Kind of. Actually Campaign magazine. Overdue. Not my fault. Thus working Mother’s Day.
Weird how sometimes the words flow more smoothly onto paper than onto pixels…
