June 22, 2012 (day 7)
After a short and sweet general membership meeting, I had an uneventful but beautiful drive home. The weather was near perfect and the sky was fantastic. The conference was great and it got me psyched for next year.

June 21, 2012 (day 6)
No travel today. I attended some presentations and visited a museum across the street. The day ended with the awards banquet.

June 20, 2012 (day 5)
My bus tour du jour was east along the Lincoln Highway to Chester, West Virginia. After brick roads and museums, we were back in Canton for a classic movie in a classic theater.

June 19, 2012 (day 4)
Today was the first of two bus tour days and I was on the bus that traveled through Amish country. Educational, entertaining, and delicious.

June 18, 2012 (day 3)
I joined the pre-conference Founder's Tour in Niles, Ohio, and cruised to Canton via Warren and Akron.

June 17, 2012 (day 2)
So much for topless driving. This was a top up day with rain or the threat of rain a day long fact. I still had a good time, though, and hooked up with a long time roadie friend and met the owner of a classic motel on the Lincoln Highway.

June 16, 2012 (day 1)
I got the trip started today by driving an old car over an old familiar road. Toward day's end I found some really cool stuff in a building I've just been driving by in the past.

Prelude - February 25, 2012
The 2012 Lincoln Highway Association Conference will take place in Canton, Ohio. That happens to be toward the opposite corner of the state from my home but it's still less than 200 miles away. That means there was never any question of me attending. Although the distance can be driven in just a few hours, I've never had a problem creating multi-day road trips to that area and it will be even easier with the conference and associated activities. Conference dates are June 18 through June 22 but my trip is certain to extend that by a day or two on each end.
