Forty-eight years after they graduated, members of the Elizabethtown High School Class of 1966 are reuniting to travel one of the country's most famous highways.
The members who have confirmed their invitation will gather at the starting point of the University Plaza Hotel in Springfield, where many already have booked their reservations. Embracing a spirit of spontaneity, no further reservations have been booked along the route.
Stephen Rafferty, the classmate who developed a working itinerary for the trip, said there is a simplistic beauty in embracing a self-guided journey without set limitations or hurried schedules.
