  1. Sorry I'm so late to reply.  First Day Cover collectors vary, but some would certainly value a cover signed by the artist higher than a blank cover.  Just like comics, sports memorabilia, etc.

  2. I haven't managed to drive the routes end-to-end, so my solution has been to construct a virtual roadtrip. I research the road and sites along the way from the perspective of the year 1962, just before the interstates took over. Then, I post the results organized in the conceit of each day's "drive" at my website Roadtrip-'62 . So far, I've completed US-23 and the longest route, US-6.


  3. I've managed to drive all of US-6 east from Joliet, IL, and all of old US-6 in California. I've even driven some isolated locations between, including most of Colorado. I knew I would never get to the whole route, so I created a "virtual" roadtrip, writing about what I might have seen in the year 1962. I just completed it on my website and it took me 36 virtual days to drive the entire route: there's a lot to stop and see!
