After years of stumbling through the design and upkeep of my web site, here I am learning another skill, blogging. It’s a bit daunting but also pretty exciting! I’m always searching for Lincoln Highway info, or trying to help others find what they’re looking for, so I might as well go online where I can share all the news and info with lots of you. I hope you’ll feel free to send your news here too.

I’m inspired and humbled by the work of others, who I’m sure to be regularly referencing in the future, including Ron Warnick’s comprehensive Route 66 News, Greg Holmes’ adventures with his good friend Ace Jackalope, and new to blogging but posting amazing photos for years of Roadside Architecture is Debra Jane Seltzer, also known to her fans as agilitynut or roadsidenut.

I have lots to learn about administering this site but I hope to soon have links, images, and video along with straightforward news for you to enjoy.

    This is a welcome addition to the Lincoln Highway on the Web. I can’t think of a better blogmaster for it than you, Brian.

    Brian –

    How you can possibly find time to add this site to your “to do” list is beyond me…but of, course we look forward to your updates on the Lincoln Highway!

    Cheers…and welcome to the world o’blogging!

    Putting this on my favorites right away. It’s about time LH got its own news site. Look forward to keeping updated.

    Great, I’m looking forward to the book. Be sure to add what you like to VINTAGE MOTELS SIGNS ONLY! on my flickr site. That Green Gables Court in Gettysburg looks intriguing to say the least!

    It is my wifes and my intention to drive this old highway in it’s entirety in the near future. Cameras in hand>

    Thanks Jim. That motel (in my Flickr pictures for those wondering what we’re talking about) is a great example of how much there is to find just a few blocks off the exact route of the Lincoln Highway. It’s at the northern end of where Pickett’s Charge took place.
