O.K., I am putting on my geek hat again. Bear with me. If you recall earlier this year I traveled along US 80 from its inception on Tybee Island, Georgia to its end (almost) in Texas. I thoroughly enjoyed driving along the lesser traveled route and stopping in the smaller towns along the way. A couple of days ago I was traveling with my brother along the Columbia River gorge in Oregon and we stopped to look at a few waterfalls along the way. We were traveling on a smaller highway that paralleled Interstate 84. At one point I saw this sign and it finally clicked. This historic Route 30 is the same Route 30 that passes through York and Lancaster counties in Pennsylvania. I lived in both of those counties for many years and drove along this road many a time. It was called The Lincoln Highway at this point. I had no idea this was part of a cross country road system. I guess I wasn't so geek-y then. Yes, I was. But I missed this. hmmm.....gives me an idea for another road trip. I'm looking at you US 30.
