Thumbs up: The Why in the road
The "Wander Indiana" suggestion on Indiana license plates a generation ago generated plenty of derision, but Hoosiers know that wandering the back roads is the only way to truly appreciate the true richness of the state's character. Indy is preparing to celebrate the importance of those back roads with the world premiere of The Why in the Road. Set for 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, at the Indiana State Museum IMAX Theater, the original movie premiere is a featured event in the Preserving the Historic Road conference. Featuring workshops and bus tours exploring places like National Road, Buffalo Trace and the Kessler system, the two-day conference (a biennial event held in various host cities across the country) fosters multidisciplinary networking on a variety of issues for historic roads.
