St. Louis, Missouri (NAPSI) - The American highway system is now over a century old: In 1913, theLincoln Highway became the first hard-topped, graded road across the continent.

Ways To Go

Ever since, that road and its sister highways—from the one that’s perhaps the most famous, Route 66, traversing the American west; to the “Blues Highway” that connects New Orleans and Minnesota; and from U.S. 1 that goes from Maine to Key West; to the Scenic Route 100 Byway along the edge of Vermont’s Green Mountains—have been calling to travelers.

You Can Take It With You

If the lure of the road has you agreeing with Jack Kerouac in “On the Road” that “We gotta go and never stop going till we get there,” you may be glad to know that getting all your gear to go with you may be easier than you think. As people are trending to drive smaller cars these days, they are having a harder time figuring out how to bring all their gear with them on their road trip. We are big fans of using a roof box for getting our skis to the mountains in the winter and are even bigger fans of using them for road trips in the summer. Modern roof boxes are aerodynamic, install/remove in a matter of minutes and look great on cars. The experts on safe, secure and stylish transportation at Thule have come up with a wide range of cargo boxes that can make your American road trip great. These boxes come in a wide range of sizes, finishes and colors that complement the looks of just about any car on the road.
