From www.motorcities.org: "In 1909, the idea of a cross-country trip sparked the imagination and determination of Alice Ramsey. With her husband's support and a new car, she became the first woman to drive coast-to-coast. Her monumental trip stretched from New York City to San Francisco. She drove over and endured rugged roadways, overflowing streams and rocky terrain, as well as the flat lands of the plains. For nearly 3 months, with foot to the pedal, she pushed westward at a maximum speed of 40 miles per hour with her three female companions. Regardless of the hardships and difficulties she faced, she carried on and reached her destination."
