  2. Hi everyone. II hope you are doing well. apologize for being MIA. We've been dealing with flooding and short staffing due to Covid issues, etc. I was just taking a quick peek on the Forum and saw this string. Dave, I apologize for not responding to your message: Here are a couple of ideas. Any preferences? I have a stack of Ford Times magazine from the late 40’s. This was the peak of post WWII road travel, when we could again get on the road. I could probably pull something together from them. We took a road trip a few weeks ago to a fishing port on the Washington coast….boats, lighthouse, etc. As you know I have tons of road maps, Automobile Blue Books, Hobbs Grade and Surface Guide, from 100 years ago, etc etc. I can always do a piece on something about almost anywhere in America in 1917 or 1920. I am probably the “world expert” on the National Parks Highway, and no slouch on the Yellowstone Trail and the Yellowstone Highway. Anyway, that is just a sample. If something might sync with upcoming issues, I’d give it a try as well. Truthfully Dave, I would be interested in any and all of the subjects. But I'd like to hear what everyone else wants to read about. Preferences anyone?
  3. Calling all photographers! AMERICAN ROAD’s “Pet Places—the Ultimate Furry Friend Road Trip Photo Contest and Giveaway” is underway!

  4. Good to hear from all of you. Maybe this pandemic can prompt us to exchange more information about our past and future road trips on the Forum again. The short one and two sentence posts on Facebook and Twitter just aren't very fulfilling.
  5. Welcome Bill & Tina Ouellette! Looking forward to hearing about your future travels.
  6. We hope everyone is enjoying our sci-fi themed Summer 2019 issue of American Road. We'd love to hear about your favorite sci-fi movie that involves a road trip. Don't forget to tell us why it's at the top of your list, too!
  7. Cort, Congrats on your show! Dave, please do share the details of your trip on old auto and stagecoach roads in Oregon. Fun! Best, Becky
  8. Thanks for sharing! These photos bring back memories. I remember staying there and seeing a show. This was, I think, in 2001. The painted rooms and the opera house are amazing.
  9. Hope things are going ok Cort. Did you have an opportunity to take a road trip?
  10. Hi Michael, Thanks for sharing this news. (Sorry I'm a little late responding, the last few months have been hectic.) Nice site. Congratulations. We'll post a link on our Resources page to it. Keep up the great work!
  11. Nothing thrills highway buffs quite like a sizzling neon sign. The Spring 2018 issue of American Road takes a look at some beautiful historic neon signs on US Highway 99. What sign on US Highway 99 is your favorite (and it doesn't have to be in the issue)? Share a photo, tell us about the sign, how it made you feel the first time you saw it, and why its your favorite.
  12. In honor of our Memory Motel section, leave a comment about your favorite “off the beaten path” place to stay; a hotel, motel, B&B, lodge or camp site (50+ words or more). How did you find it? What makes it memory worthy? Have you stayed there more than once? Feel free to include photos. *Your story may be shared in an upcoming issue of our magazine!* If we use your story you'll be entered to win a one-year subscription to American Road magazine.
  13. American Road's Winter 2016 issue celebrated National Parks. We want the best National Parks to add to our bucket list! Leave a comment about your favorite National Park (50+ words or more). Why do you recommend it? What makes it special to you? Would you go back for another visit? Feel free to include photos. *Your story may be shared in an up coming issue of our magazine!* If we use your story, you'll be entered to win an American Road tote bag.
  14. Love the story Dave! We had a similar experience, but not with a plum. The offending fruit was a banana.
  15. So Dave, Did you meet up with the group? We're eager to hear about it!
  16. I've not seen a purple Studebaker in person, but, it's NICE!
  17. Just a quick update - we are upholding the tradition that the members of this forum started - sending our service men and women care packages during the holidays. I'm happy to report that we sent care packages to 50 members of the Navy this holiday. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy New Year!

  22. Hi Rick, Nice photos! Denny, yes, you should definitely go there. Thomas and I were there, way back when, doing research for Route 66: Romance of the West. That same trip we had the privilege of meeting and interviewing Joy Nevin, who once lived at Painted Desert TP. That was amazing. If you go to Holbrook, look for Joy Nevin Ave., named in her honor.
  23. Enjoyed your blog of your Wonderland Way Trip Denny! And, I agree, the Triple Whipple is a very picturesque span.
