  1. http://wp.me/p18dfZ-ee This is the most recent post on the subject. The blog is now working its way back towrds the west. Grover
  2. KMZ and KML files of this topic Say folks, I have a file consisting of all of my waypoints in Google Earth KMZ and KML file format. If anyone would like to play with them and give me feedback, just send an email to groverc@me.com and I'll send the files. Grover
  3. Dear folks, The blog has been updated to now cover from Truckee to Ruth. The next installments will be dedicated to the most interesting portion of the LHW, at least to me, that section between Ely and Salt Lake City, where the road tried desperately to avoid the salt flats.

  4. Re Moorman Ranch, I mean archival material, probably written although not necessarily so. I should have said "leads to archives" and I also received contact information to one of the last survivors of the Moorman family. Research to follow.
  5. Dear Members, I just completed a 1500 mile roundtrip exploring and photographing the remains of the 1913 LHW in Nevada and western Utah. You'd find the first two chapters here: LHW in Basin and Range It was a great adventure, taking my two-wheel-drive van in places it was never meant to go. Please subscribe to the blog and I hope you enjoy it. Grover

    Lhw In Basin And Range

    Trees, rocks - I've done it all. Once I lost the copter and then when I sent the plane out to find it (live video feed from the plane) I lost the plane too! I had a friend fly over in his full size helicopter and it was found quickly. and will scare you. Nonetheless these little goodies are a great way to get the shots you need. Grover

    Lhw In Basin And Range

    Dave, It is great way to get a fresh perspective. I normally use the plane as seen here: http://www.electricflights.com/hawkeyemainpage.html Sometimes I use a quadcopter - Google "quadcopter" or "Gaui" which takes a bit of learning. Grover

    Lhw In Basin And Range

    Fellow Lincoln Highway enthusiasts, Chapter Seven - Middlegate Station is now up on the blog sierratraveler.wordpress.com with information about all the "gates" in the area. Grover People have asked about how I managed to get the aerial photos. I carry with me a remote control airplane and/or helicopter with a Canon A480 camera mounted on it. Using a piece of software called CHDK I set the camera to take a photo every few seconds and then I pick the "keepers" from the hundreds of shots obtained.

    Lhw In Basin And Range

    This was a most interesting adventure. I'll be going back in the spring to build on photographic portfolio. I'm glad you are liking it thus far Next chapter: Reno's 4th Street. Grover
  15. Are there any remains of Frenchman Station? Can someone provide lat/lon for the location? Thanks Grover
  16. Dale, I really appreciate your postings on this subject and particularly the included lat/lon numbers. Generally they import into Google Earth with little or no fiddling. I'm hoping to duplicate your journey this October in the Model T, at least as far east as SLC. A gps and copious notes will certainly be along for the ride. Cheers, Grover

    Goodyear Cut Off

    Right that is the intersection for the cutoff. What I am looking at is the place where the "Enter and you may be killed" sign is shown. I believe that to be at 40° 5.503'N 113° 42.094'W before you actually get down onto the playa. Thanks for the gas info everyone. The Tin Lizzie and I will be there in October. Grover

    Goodyear Cut Off

    Dale, Thanks for doing all the field work I was planning to do. (heh) I have a question about the last photo: could you take these coordinates and put them in Google Earth and confirm or deny that this last photo was taken here: 40 5.503N 113 42.096W I think from the satellite imagery that I see a fence at this location and that one can't actually get down onto the flats without trespassing. One other question: is there gas available at Ipabah and Dugway? I'm planning on a Model T exploration of the area in October but I need to calculate how much extra gas I'm going to need to carry. The Model T only has a ten-gallon tank. Thanks, Grover 1919 Model T Roadster
