just a reminder:

Not all who wander are lost

This site is dedicated to roadies and wannabees; those who exit the Interstate and see the real America by travelling its two lane highways and visiting its big cities, small towns, and rural beauty.


If thoughts of gettin’ your kicks on Route 66 inspire you; if spotting a red, white and blue Lincoln Highway sign excites you; if a narrow forgotten road leading to nowhere intrigues you – then you’ve come to the right place, for we are kindred spirits.


This site is being developed to share aspects of the road that have inspired us: great roadside diners and cafes, classic motels, incredible neon signs, and most of all the roads that get us there.


Content, though minimalist at present, will be continuously added. This will include photographs, historic information, and maps so you can drive some of these forgotten roads yourself.


So come back often!
