A Blog Along The Lincoln Highway

All of this is about a public TV project about one of America’s great roads, and we’re hoping you might enjoy reading about some of our behind-the-scenes work. I’m Rick Sebak, and I write most of the tales. Bob Lubomski is our cameraman. And Glenn Syska has been traveling with us recently. He made the video blog entries in 2008. Back in 2007, Jarrett Buba did all that. A RIDE ALONG THE LINCOLN HIGHWAY first aired on PBS on October 29, 2008 at 8 PM. Check with your local PBS station to find out about repeat broadcasts. Or go for the DVD at www.shopwqed.org.

So we’re pushed across Nebraska by the wind.  Interstate all the way.

In mid-afternoon, the subject of lunch comes up.  Hmm.  Labor Day.  What will be open?  Can we find anything other than interstate interchange food?

Between the front seats, where we keep the box of CDs and an ever-changing assortment of important things, from Butko’s book to snacks to the SONY hi-def camera that we’ve been using, there’s also a small selection of books that haven’t been looked at a lot.  In there, I have an old trusty copy of Jane and Michael Stern’s Roadfood.  I haven’t cracked it open the whole trip, but since I don’t know much about Nebraska, why not turn to the experts in a time of uncertainty?
