The Tunnel Vision column of our Spring 2015 American Road featured an article entitled Joy to the Road about the centennial of a remarkable journey from Detroit to San Francisco by Henry B. Joy, first president of the Packard Motor Car Company in 1915. Between the end of June 2015 and the first week of July, another group of Lincoln Highway enthusiasts made that same trip in 12 days. Their tour guide was Paul Gilger who also led the mapping committee for the tour.

In this final podcast in the Lincoln Highway Centennial Tour series, Paul describes the complicated process of putting a cross country tour together. Some of the most enthusiastic travelers are the international visitors who make up a large part of the traveling band, particularly the Germans who have taken a particular shine to Route 66.
