Itchy Feet

For year's I've told people about the military road-trip, that young Lt Colonel Dwight Eisenhower took in 1919, which was a big factor in the creation of the Interstate Highway System. Here's a great archive of logs and reports on the expedition. The downside is that it's mostly in PDF format, so it's awkward to read, but it's great stuff nevertheless. I especially liked the daily logs. (Kinda like a weblog from the past.) Maybe I'll transcribe some of it one of these days. It all reminds me of my cross-country trips. We took very similar routes.
