PBS Lincoln Highway video near final cut

September 16, 2008

I revisited Rick Sebak at the WQED-TV studios to see the near-final cut of his Lincoln Highway documentary to air October 29. He has a typical end-of-project dilemma — so much cool stuff to show but not enough time in the 56-minute program. And his deadline to complete the work is this week. I was surely no help, advising that he show more of this or that when he needs advice on what to cut!

Here’s where I was set up to watch. You’ll recognize attendees at the 2008 LHA conference gathering for a group photo in front of the Sunset Motel in Evanston, Wyoming.

In another room, above, video editor Kevin Conrad worked on an interview with LHA past-president Jesse Peterson for the show’s closing moment, a montage of personalities and scenery.

It’s a great show, with lots of info and imagery of the highway, and a theme song written for it by Buddy Nutt that is stuck in my head! ….. “Goin’ all the waaaayyyy, on the Lincoln Highwaaaayyyy!”

2008 LHA conference in Evanston – day 1

June 18, 2008

Lincoln Highway fans were in Evanston, Wyoming, on Monday to kick off the 2008 National Lincoln Highway Association Conference. Tours were given of the roundhouse and railyard, then a get-together was held for first-time conference attendees followed by a welcome reception in the railroad machine shop, and capped by a buffet dinner with keynote speaker Mark Foster, University of Colorado professor and author of Castles in the Sand: The Life and Times of Carl Graham Fisher.

Above photos show a family from Colorado with one of the cast-iron state line markers, Bill Arick with Mindy and Rodney Crawford, and art show entries including a painting from a student and a photo detail of the Fisher Mausoleum by Jan Shupert-Arick.
