Lincoln Highway Association - California Chapter: Contact Us, 24 July 2014 [cached]
Paul Gilger · President
"The Lincoln Highway started it all ..., 21 June 2013 [cached]
"The Lincoln Highway started it all for the automobile," said Paul Gilger, president of the California chapter of The Lincoln Highway Association, who is leading the tour from San Francisco. "Before that, people traveling outside of their town did so on a train."
The highway was the precursor to America's highway and interstate system and in a sense marked the birth of trucking. Before its creation, people primarily ate only what was grown or raised near them, he said.
"No one in Ohio had ever seen an avocado," Gilger said.
A few areas remain much as they did 100 years ago, such as unpaved stretches in the Utah desert, Gilger said.
"There's no telephone poles; there's no cellphone service; there are no signs," he said.

Lincoln Highway Association - California Chapter: Minutes for July 7, 2012, 18 July 2013 [cached]
President Paul Gilger: Paul has had 5 speaking engagements so far this year, and encourages other club speakers to do more PowerPoint LH presentations (see item 6g below). 2012 LHA National Conference: Paul said that the June 2012 National Conference in Canton, Ohio was a huge success. It was well attended and had some great tours. Paul mentioned that he played piano at Bernie Queneau's 100th birthday celebration. At the convention, Paul received the highest award: LHA's Meritorious Achievement Award for his countless hours mapping the LH on a national scale on the new Google-based maps.
Recording Secretary Mike Kaelin: Mike simply thanked Gary Kinst, Jimmy Lin, and Paul, for the efforts they made in their respective LHA pursuits to better not only the California Chapter, but nationally as well!
Mapping Chair Paul Gilger: Paul reports that as of June 20, 2012, the new LH Google-based maps went online for general public access. The Cruise date to Lake Tahoe is scheduled for Saturday, August 25. The Coach tour to Donner Summit, with historic scenic stops along the way, is scheduled for Saturday, September 15. It is being conducted by Sports Leisure Vacations.
Speakers: Paul Gilger stated that he has had 5 speaking engagements so far this year.
Tourism Development: Paul said that we will continue to encourage businesses along the old LH to offer discounts to LH travelers. Another idea is to upgrade membership cards to plastic cards similar to credit cards, for easier LH identification; this would make it easier for LHA members to receive discounts at LH-friendly businesses. Car Club Outreach: This will be an important item, especially as plans are developed for next year's gala centennial events (see Section 8 - New Business below). New Business LH 100th Anniversary Tour, June 2013 Paul presented detailed plans for the caravan car tours: Tour #1 westbound from New York City, and Tour #2 eastbound from San Francisco. The tours will begin on Sunday, June 23 from Lincoln Park in San Francisco, and Saturday, June 22 from Times Square in New York City, both aligned with the original 1913 LH as much as possible, and both meeting in Kearney, Nebraska on Sunday, June 30. State chapters will be asked to participate, providing lunch and dinner stops along the way, among other things. Paul Gilger, Jimmy Lin, Jay Banta, and other planners will produce and record the exact itineraries online for LHA members and the public, including caravan routes, various stops, and of course, the week of celebration in Kearney, Nebraska.
Paul gave an brief description of Tour #2 from San Francisco and where the California Chapter would provide lunch.
Paul gave an example of a Lincoln Highway PowerPoint presentation he has been presenting.
