100 Years of the Lincoln Highway

Really interesting video on the Centennial of the Lincoln Highway and talks about the Tin Can Tourists around the 27 minute mark. We have documentation that the name of the club came from the Tin Lizzies they were driving but from an outsiders view, the Tin Cans they were eating from would be an obvious connection.

Before the Interstate Highway System, before famed Route 66, before highways were even numbered, there was one road that started it all, one road that changed America forever: The Lincoln Highway. “100 Years on the Lincoln Highway” is the story of the first coast to coast automobile road in the United States and its impact on Wyoming.

1 million Americans live in RVs. Meet the ‘modern nomads.’

We have many Tin Can Tourists who full time it in their Vintage Campers and apparently that is a growing trend. Check out this Washington Port article…

Video about the article:

Abstract:

Couples who have ditched houses for the open road say it has made them happier — and improved their marriages.


Chip Litchfield and his partner, Penni Brink, enjoy lunch in their RV at the Interstate 24 Campground in Smyrna, Tenn. Both are working their second year with the seasonal Amazon CamperForce as they travel back and forth between Vermont and Florida. (William DeShazer for The Washington Post)

November 12

When Robert and Jessica Meinhofer told friends they were moving into an RV in 2015, most thought they were crazy.

The questions poured in: How could they go from living in a 2,000-square-foot home to living in a 250-square-foot trailer? What would they do with their stuff? What would their children, ages 6 and 9, do for school? Was this a midlife crisis? The hardest people to convince were Jessica’s parents, who grew up in an impoverished Latino neighborhood in the Bronx and worked hard so their daughter could have a better life. They couldn’t understand why the couple wanted to live like migrant laborers.

The Meinhofers are doing this by choice, not financial desperation. They are part of a movement of people ditching “sticks and bricks” homes that have long embodied the American Dream and embracing a life of travel, minimal belongings and working when they want.
