The focus was on a remarkable sculpture display in the town of Troy, Ohio featuring a 31’ tall sculpture of Abraham Lincoln that will delight all of you Lincoln fans. But in the course of my conversation with Katherine Hays, Executive Director of Main Street Troy I discovered the really big event: the display of the Funeral Train of Abraham Lincoln, Sept. 10-13, 2015. ##### This podcast is brought to you by Vandalia Illinois where they invite you to get into the swing of the Harvest Festival Sept. 25 and 26th in beautiful downtown Vandalia.

    Amish Country Bike Tour Dover, Delaware

    29th Annual Amish Country Bike Tour, Dover, Del.
  8. Click here to listen… Click here to download … This American Road Trip Talk podcast is a little different because the event we are talking about has yet to appear in our magazine. We did, however, think that you would enjoy knowing about the 29th Annual Amish Country Bike Tour because it is such a wonderful way of getting to know America’s first state, Delaware. The two wheeled excursion takes place on September 12, 2015 and offers 5 separate routes around Dover, DE with level courses that are comfortable enough for young families or challenging enough for professional riders. Our guest is Cindy Small, Executive Director of the Kent County Tourism Bureau who started the conversation by giving us a little history lesson. ******** The Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Begins Here! ******** ********** Pick up a copy of American Road magazine and don't miss another edition!

    Centennial Tour of Lincoln Highway June 26 2015- July 8, 2015.
  11. Click here to listen … Click here to download … 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. ******** As a tribute to the 60th Anniversary of the 1955 Chevy, Danchuk has partnered with Woody’s Hot Rodz and Super Chevy Magazine to bring you the Tri-Five Nationals, August 14-15, 2015 at Beech Bend Raceway in Bowling Green Kentucky.

Joy, first president of the Packard Motor Car Company in 1915. Henry mounted his trusty Packard I-35 and navigated the often-muddy trails that were the Lincoln Highway just two years after the route had been established from New York to San Francisco. Henry’s destination was the Panama-Pacific Exhibition in the newly resurrected City by the Sea, which had risen from the rubble of a disastrous earthquake. Between the end of June 2015 and July 8, another group of Lincoln Highway enthusiasts are going to trace that same 2,836 mile trip in 12 days. They will be lead by the husband and wife team of Rosemary Rubin and Bob Lichty who are veterans of the route and our guests for this podcast.
