For anyone who is a member for the Society for Commerical Archeology, you probably wish you were going to this conference: Preserving the Historic Road, 1998-2008. I wish I were. I mean, I even love the conference postcard. New Mexico, Route 66, neon, sessions on how to preserve the roads and incorporate them into modern times. What could be better? Alas, I am not going. But, if anyone is, I would greatly appreciate a recap of the conference – photographs, notes, anything! And if you are going, have a great time!
Just reading about this conference is enough to fuel my need (yes, need) for a southwestern road trip. Stay tuned!
