Hello Andrew.

Please say "hello" to my son, Staff Sargent Eric Miller! I certainly hope you all are enjoying the convoy. It looks to be an exciting adventure.

Mr. Atwater,

I understand you have met my father Gary Ridley from Oklahoma when he joined the convoy in Chicago. He has expressed to my mother that he has really enjoyed meeting you. I am his daughter back here in Oklahoma and he won't brag on himself, but he is a man who has dedicated himself to the roads in Oklahoma for the past 40 years and we are so proud of him. IF you get this message tell him his grandkids and I are watching through the internet as you travel into Washington D.C.
Thanks
Daphne Ridley Burnett, Monica and Caleb.

Merrill -

Greetings from Western! It's been fun to keep tabs on you through your blogs. It seems as if you've experienced much more on this trip than perhaps what you expected. What a wonderful opportunity for you to experience first hand a part of your great grandfather's legacy. It will be fun to talk more about your experiences when you return!

Take care,
Beverly P.

Merrill,
Representing the State of Tennessee in the convoy was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It was a pleasure meeting you. My best to you in whatever path you choose.

Hi Merrill!
I met you in Laramie, WY and just wanted to say hello again. I enjoyed reading your posts and am glad to know you had such a great time on the convoy. I can't wait to take my own cross country trip thanks to your great grandfather's vision and hard work. Best of luck!

Dear Mr. Atwater

My name is Alex Grant, my brother Sam and I are Middle School students at Shorecrest Preparatory School in St. Petersburg Florida. Each year our school participates in the National History Day Competition at the local level. Last year, I was fortunate and won the State of Florida Junior Website Division and qualified for the National History Day Competition at the University of Maryland. My research included primary resources such as interviews with a professor from the University of West Virginia, and a correspondent from the St. Petersburg Times.

This year’s topic is “An Innovation in History: Impact and Change.“ After careful consideration my brother and I decided to develop a website on the innovation and creation of the U.S. Interstate Highway System. During our research, we came across the article “The Superhighway to Everywhere” written by T.R. Reid and published in the Washington Post on June 28, 2006 and we read about you.

We would be interested to hear your thoughts about the Interstate System and my brother and I were wondering if we could conduct either an email or personal interview with you to include some of your thoughts in our website. We have the ability to have an iChat or Skype interview as well.

Sincerely,

Alex Grant
