The third annual Ladies Rule the Range event saw great success and reached the desired goal, 100 participants.

Everyone has heard of Route 66. But, few know of historic U.S. Route 20. It extends from Boston, Massachusetts, to Newport, Oregon. Spanning 3,365 miles, Route 20 is the longest road in the United States. The more famous Route 66, called the Main Street of America, is 2,451 miles in length. New York and other states are promoting tourism along Route 20. I have chatted with people along the route in New York State and they admit that they are having a problem making people aware of the great things to see along the way.
