    “The ‘Open Road’ represents journeys of self-discovery, quests to define our national identity, opportunities to escape from the daily routine, and expressions of social protest-The image of The ‘Open Road’ that prevailed 100 years ago, when footloose armies of homeless created a network of rowdy ''hobohemias'' across the country, made the first protest march on Washington and captured the public imagination as a rugged vanguard of radical unionism are now largely forgotten. Remember Woody Guthrie?

    ”The American road narrative has been a significant and popular literary & cinimatic genre for decades. Romance of the Road captures America's love affair with roads, cars, travel, speed, and the lure of open spaces. With roots reaching back to quest romance and pilgrimage, the myth of the American highway explores our diverse and often conflicted cultural values. In 1893, the eminent historian Frederick Jackson Turner opined "For a moment, at the frontier, the bonds of custom are broken and unrestraint is triumphant". The "Open Road" was something which created a physical link between that which was civilized and established, and that which was not.”
