    Wow the Lincoln Highway is one of the things I must do . It’s on my “Bucket List”

    Thank you for including the picture. Jan and I must have appeared to be wild drivers — they wouldn’t give us the keys! Just kidding — I’m sure they would have been more than happy to have us take a little ride around the parking lot. They were very kind. I expect to see them again in DeKalb, Illinois on July 3rd. If I do, may I send more photos?

    Keep up the good work!
