How about that, I got the same book by Brian Butko. I can't wait to drive the Lincoln Highway. It took me three trips over a few years to complete Route 66 and the Lincoln Highway is my next goal. I received Michael Wallis's book about the Lincoln Highway for my birthday this last September and it is a great read as well. Brian's book adds the maps and the mile by mile commentary needed when you are actually on the road.
Santa also gave me a super Route 66 clock. I found this in the parts department at a local card dealership last Februray and just casually mentioned it to my live in Santa (wive). I forgot all about it and was surprised and really pleased that she did not.
