What's your holiday performance story?
The office talent show, the neighborhood caroling posse, the school pageant ... At holiday time we often sing, dance, and dress as shepherds. Did you bloom in the warmth of your audience's adulation, or freeze up like the snowman you'd rather be building? Did your holiday performance change your life or that of someone close to you?

The Lincoln Highway

Map loading...


This summer we're taking you on a road trip along the Lincoln Highway. Built in 1913, it was the very first road to cross the whole country in one shot. As the interstate highway system grew, the Lincoln was largely forgotten. A two-lane road could hardly compete with the I-80. And sure, the interstate gets you where you're going, but with the same KFCs and McDonald's and Best Westerns everywhere, it's hardly the way to see the country. This summer, we'll take the Lincoln Highway, stumbling on all the unique and weird parts of America that make a road trip great.
