His first encounter with the Bankhead Highway occurred while bicycling on back roads in Parker County near Aledo. The narrow country road seemed to belie the nearby street sign which identified it as the Old Bankhead Highway. Few seemed to know much about the old road, and even less was known about the Bankhead Highway. Years later the author began his research and discovered the roads historical significance.
