Lincoln Highway / Welcome Lincoln Highway fans
« on: May 25, 2006, 09:23:15 AM »
The Father Road, named after America's famous president Abraham Lincoln, needs little introduction. The Lincoln was one of the first and most famous of the named auto trails. This is the board for discussions about the Lincoln Highway, its various alignments, and its unique concrete guide markers.

El Camino Real in California / California's mission trail
« on: May 25, 2006, 09:16:33 AM »
El Camino Real was one of the first signed roads in the state. It was of course originally a Spanish trail connecting the catholic missions, assistencias, the Spanish presidios, and the ranchos in Alta California. However, in the 1910s, the Federation of Women's Clubs, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and later the California auto clubs worked to place unique guideposts for motorists along the whole route. These are California's famous El Camino Real bells, and are still being placed to this day.

Dixie Highway / Down (or up) the Dixie Highway!
« on: May 25, 2006, 09:09:23 AM »
The Dixie is more of a road system than a single highway. It generally goes from Florida to the Great Lake states of Illinois and Michigan. There were two main north-south routes on the Dixie. It also had several roads connecting the two branches that were like rungs on a ladder.

This board is the place to post threads about the Dixie in your state, or events or topics along the Highway that would be of general interest to everyone.

Other U.S. Highways / All the other roads
« on: May 25, 2006, 09:03:15 AM »
Are you a fan of US 2 along America's nothern border? Or do you like driving lonely US 50 in Nevada? If so, this is the place to open a thread about your favorite highway. If any of the highways here seems to warrant it's own board by having multiple long threads, I'd consider opening a new one for the road.

Other named auto trails / Specific auto trail discussions
« on: May 25, 2006, 08:58:04 AM »
There were hundreds of auto trails in the USA. This board allows folks to talk about specific auto trails not covered in the other boards. Feel free to start a thread here about your favorite named road. Whether you are interested in the Magnolia Trail, the Midland Trail, the Arrowhead Highway, or any other, this is the place to talk about them. If any of the threads gets big enough, I would consider opening up a new board to cover the road.

General Auto Trail Topics / Auto trails
« on: May 25, 2006, 08:52:52 AM »
Any subject that would be of interest to everone interested in America's old auto trails would fit here. U.S. auto trails flourished during the dawn of the automobile era. Most auto trail associations were active between 1910 and 1930. Also, if you are from another nation, and would like to relate the history of roads in your country for the early 20th century period, it would be great to see that here, too.

Off Topic / Off topic board
« on: May 25, 2006, 08:47:46 AM »
This is the board for general silliness, and subjects that are not directly road related.

I would ask that folks don't go too far afield in their discussions here. This forum is not the place to talk about hotbed issues. There are lots of other forums on the internet to get all steamed up or to vent frustrations.

Please, no advertising for products or services unrelated to the subject matter of the site. Any such advertising will be removed.
