    Old DOT video

    Here is an old DOT video explaining the need to build new 30. There is some pretty cool footage driving down Lincolnway through Ames at about the 7 minute mark.

    I remember that stretch on 30 in campustown. When I first lived in Ames, in 1961, we lived at Lincoln Apts. There were semis cruising by all night, every night. On the plus side, we were right across the street from Clyde Williams Field, so I got an early start on my Cyclone indoctrination!!


    If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right!!

    very cool.

    Aside from the addition of Minsky's, Nevada looks pretty much the same, these days.
