April 27, 2013 (day 4)
Having a bunch of people celebrate your 191st birthday is a pretty good sign that you did something right. Today was all Grant until I headed home in the afternoon.

April 26, 2013 (day 3)
I hurried to Columbus then leisurely followed US-62 to near Georgetown, Ohio. The day ended with a "roast" of Ulysses S. Grant.

April 25, 2013 (day 2)
With just a 60 mile drive for the day it took some effort to while away the time but I managed. A little two-lane, a carrousel, and some pie did the job.

April 24, 2013 (day 1)
I scrapped plans to drive US-42 to Mansfield and drove I-71 -- in the rain -- to Columbus instead. The reason was to catch a band but the rain made missing the two-lane OK.

Prelude - April 10, 2013
I'll admit that my attendance at the Ohio Lincoln Highway League annual meeting has been spotty but I did go to last year's even though there isn't a trip journal for it. That's because the 2012 National LHA Conference was held in Canton, Ohio, and the OLHL meeting took place during the conference in order to make things easier for everybody. I have the impression that the people who organize these things had a tough time agreeing on a date this year with the result that the meeting is scheduled for a Thursday evening. Were I still working, I probably would not be able to make it but, being a man of leisure, I've added it to my schedule. The meeting is just east of Mansfield in Mifflin. I'll drive to Mansfield on US-42 then take a longer route home. Actually, I'm hoping to take in an event in Georgetown on Saturday but the scarcity of nearby lodging has made that tough to pin down. If all goes well, I'll be stopping by Ulysses Grant's 191st birthday party on the way home.
