San Antonio Trip
medic978 replied to Dave Reese's topic in General DiscussionDave, I was stationed in San Antonio many years ago and enjoyed the Little Red Barn steak house. Returned for a visit about 5 years ago and it was still there, but had expanded. Food was still good. Sorry, I can't remember where the heck it is, except it is near a freeway off ramp. Last time I found it by searching on the internet. There are also some good restaurants along the Riverwalk, since you are staying downtown. Some of them can be expensive.

Kuralt Was Right.
medic978 replied to roadmaven's topic in General Discussion[font=Aria l Black] Absolutely concur. Our local antique car club took a weekend jaunt from Hampton Roads, Va. through the Shenandoah Valley, nearly 500 miles and none of it on the interstate. It was a great, leisurely trip with some beautiful scenery. Let the trucks have the interstates and save the two lane roads for me.
Interesting Blog, Seeking Stories
medic978 posted a topic in General DiscussionI saw this website mentioned on MSNBC.com a couple weeks ago, and found the concept interesting. http://www.commonties.com/index.php A twin brother and sister hit the road in search of personal stories. They didn't have to go far. They encountered so many, that they decided to take submissions from readers around the world. While their interest is in personal stories, certainly their travels along the roads of the U.S. may be of interest to American Road readers.
Things Along the Road

Wanted - Your memories of old, regional chains or local mom 'n popsAs a kid, traveling from Ohio to Florida, our family always stopped at Stuckeys, a roadside ice cream, burger and gift shop. The stuff for sale tended to be pretty wacky. I guess that's why kids liked it. I still see one of the stores occassionally, but they are not the same.
W.Va. Midland Trail
medic978 posted a topic in Midland Trail / U.S. 60Thanks for adding Route 60. I frequently drive the Midland Trail between White Sulfur Springs and Charleston, W.Va. It's a great drive with some great scenery.
Slide Shows of Driving Lincoln Highway
medic978 replied to toshio_koshimizu's topic in Lincoln Highway / U.S. 30 / U.S. 50I first saw your photos on another site, but just wanted to say again, how much I enjoy them and what a wonderful job you did documenting the Lincoln Highway. I hope you enjoyed your visit to the United States as much as I have enjoyed Japan. Medic978
