How's this for a roadtrip with only one highway number to remember ??? Highway 1 in Australia. The longest national highway in the world.
Of course, you'll have to remember which side of the road to drive on !!!

Byron Berline passed away last week. One of the most influential fiddlers to impact the Bluegrass scene.
I'm sure that the loss of his Double Stop Fiddle shop couldn't have helped to his rapid decline. I was introduced to him via the Dillards in the early '60s. What a wonderful talent.
Here is one of my favorites, Cherokee Shuffle.
Byron Berline - Lead Fiddle, Daryl Anger - Fiddle, Ned Lubercki - Banjo, Sally Van Neter - Dobro, Sharon Gilchrist - Bass and Johan Heldenbergh - Guitar
