Share Article

Roadtrip-‘62 is a travel blog that is a bit different from other travel sites, in that everybody else travels only in space, but we travel also in time! The first trip will be down route US-23, from Mackinaw City, Michigan to Jacksonville, Florida...in 1962.

Welcome to Roadtrip-‘62! It’s a travelogue that is a bit different from other travel sites, in that everybody else travels only in space, but we travel also in time! Roadtrip-'62 will try to see what’s left today from 1962, by driving as if it were 1962. The trip will drive on highways as they were in 1962, try to eat only at restaurants that existed in 1962, try to stay only at motels that existed in 1962, try to buy gas and sundries, play the music, see only the sites across America, and just generally live in America as it was in 1962. It won’t be easy because a lot has changed in almost 50 years.

Author Don Milne will be conducting this virtual trip, happening at http://www.roadtrip62.com/. The first trip will be down route US-23, from Mackinaw City, Michigan to Jacksonville, Florida. A new leg of this imaginary journey will be posted every other week. The first installment was in February and we’re now about halfway down the road, so come join the trip. For the in between weeks, he will offer some more in-depth discussion of some of the differences between 1962 and today. Readers can expect discussions on politics, transportation, pop culture, people, historical events, and much more. And of course, he’ll be attempting to show the FUN of cross-country driving.

Just in case you’re asking why 1962, author Don Milne states , "It's because I remember 1962. I traveled on my first freeway as a boy with my dad about that time, and fell in love with both travel and freeways. I’ve been traveling ever since, criss-crossing this country by car many times." But, besides his own memories, 1962 is just cool...come and see! Roadtrip-'62 is all about sharing this fun with others. Don will be doing the driving on this journey, but if readers see anything they like, they are encouraged to get out on the road and enjoy it in person. A virtual trip may be fun, but there's nothing like the real thing! To help readers, there will be plenty of links to places discussed, so they can plan their own roadtrips.

There will be frequent updates besides the main weekly postings, to add and correct information, and add teasers for other routes and topics. Reader comments are encouraged. One one never knows what might show up as Roadtrip-'62 ranges through the year 1962! So please bookmark the site, and stop back each week to buckle up and hit the road!
