Day 8 – Fort Wayne (IN) to Alsip (IL)

Did a reasonably short leg today, got some nice video footage again as we found the old Lincoln Hwy 1913 route at some places. Had a stop in heavy rains at the Studebaker National Museum, that was well worth a visit, can be highly recommended! Arrived at Doubletree by Hilton in Alsip, IL, and was…

Day 7 – Car museums in Auburn (IN)

Not moving today, a great opportunity to go to the Cord/Duesenberg Museum in Auburn. They feature a lot of rare cars, with some of the finest examples of engineering from 1900-1940. Most of us went up there in a convoy on the highway, great fun to see the passing traffic when they observed us. We…

Day 4 – Gaithersburg (PA) to Pittsburgh (PA)

Was a bit ambivalent about the plans for Independence day. As we had 200+ miles of travel ahead of us, we chose not to go to Washington DC for the parade, but instead we pressed on to get to Pittsburgh. Made a couple of stops along the route. Unfortunally, The Norwegian Codfather in Chambersburg was…

Day 3: Washington DC

Took the car in to Washington DC today to try to sneak a picture in front of the White House. Turned out that was easier said than done – half the city was closed due to preparations for Independence days. Absolutely no stopping with the Obamacastle in sight, and police everywhere. But we were determined…
