US Route 6 is the longest contiguous transcontinental route in the USA. Running from Provincetown, MA to Bishop, CA (and before 1964 to Long Beach, CA), Route 6 goes through 14 states. This is your guide along all of its original 3,652 miles. From Revolutionary War sites to pioneer settlements and western mining towns, Route 6 offers an in-depth lesson in US History, charms of yesteryear and comforts of modern times.
Route 6 in the New Yorker Magazine; Dave Hanson's Shouts and Murmurs Piece
From this week's New Yorker Magazine (May 2nd), in the Shouts and Murmurs essay by humorist Dave Hanson , Route 6 is mentioned in the faux Kindle App instructions to find the home of poet Dylan Thomas (who lived in London, died in New York and probably had no association with the route):

Do not go gentle when you make that right
For you must merge, merge into the flood of rushing lights
Route 6 goes for miles, and you must push into the night.
