  1. Happy B-day Denny! Sorry I'm a little late. We wish you many wonderful road trips and fond memories of same!
  2. Good ideas Charlie. We're signed up for all the different hotel rewards programs, too. We've been redeeming points earned on credit card purchases for gas cards to help out with travel expenses. Costco gas usually runs .10 per gallon less than other stations around us - so we try to fill up there. And, w/ an Amex card through Costco they give a higher cash back % than many other cards (up to 4% for Executive Members if memory serves). I look forward to hearing everyone's ideas!
  3. I think it might be time to revisit this topic - given the current state of fuel affairs. Does anyone have any tips/strategies they are using to save some $? We're on a special diet due to food allergies and I've found that ordering certain foods online and in bulk (such as gluten free bread mix and prezels) saves quite a bit - usually between .25 - $1 per container (especially if you order enough to qualify for free shipping). It also eliminates some runs to the grocery store (and that's no problem for me, because I really dislike grocery shopping anyway!). I also was successful in reducing our internet/phone/cable package price after we received a special offer from a competitor. It saved ~$10/month on our bill. Other ideas?
  4. We've heard there are plans for events along the trail to celebrate the event. We'll work to let you know about events as we learn about them through the magazine, Forum, Facebook, Twitter, etc.. One group planning a YT festival in Hamlet, IN may be found here. They haven't unveiled any details - but they are having a planning meeting on Feb. 8. If you know about any events, feel free to post them to our event submission form. Stay tuned for more info!
  5. Seaside is a great place - and the winter months are a surprisingly wonderful time to visit there. Dave- your visit sounds wonderful! And, Denny, I'm so sorry you missed the P 'n P! You'll just need to plan another trip.
  6. We're very excited, thank you! I noted you've got quite the list of milestones. We're so happy to hear that things seem to be going well with your recovery. We're hoping 2012 is a great year for everyone!

  9. Greetings everyone! We hope you are enjoying a safe and Happy Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. Help Us Send Care Packages to Our Service Men and Women Many of you may recall that in the past we sent gift packages filled with personal care items, gifts, and copies of American Road magazine to members of our military services serving overseas in harms way. This wonderful tradition started at the suggestion of one of our loyal subscribers. Over the years the donations made by American Road combined with donations made by our readers and advertisers resulted in gifts for hundreds of people serving in our armed forces. We still continue to receive phone calls and letters of thanks indicating that the gifts, letters, and cards sent did much to boost the moral of the recipients. Regardless of where you stand politically on war, we encourage you to help us send packages demonstrating our appreciation for the great sacrifices made by our military men and women. You may donate in one of three ways: Call 1-877-285-5434 x1 Send a donation via PayPal to becky@americanroadmagazine.com (specify that the donation is for Military Holiday Care Packages). Send check or money order to American Road; c/o Military Holiday Care Packages; PO Box 46519, Mount Clemens, MI 48046 Donations must be received by December 7 to allow time to purchase the care package items, package, and ship them by December 11 for arrival by December 25.

  16. I love the Oregon coast! Thanks for sharing. Did you have a chance to eat at the original Mo's in Newport? They have awesome chowder. Nothing beats their chowder on a cool Autumn day... I can almost taste it now...
  17. Hi Ed, There are so many great places to visit where you are traveling! If you travel through London, Ontario on your way from Quebec to Detroit and happen to stay the night in the area you might want to pay a visit to the Mustang Drive-in theatre (in the Summer issue of American Road). We'll look forward to hearing all about your travels! Best, Becky
  18. Dave, There is a short article in "Friends in the Fast Lane" in the Summer issue that tells a bit about the Jefferson Highway Association's plans. AND, Foster's new podcast has an interview with Mike Conlin, the new President of the Jefferson Highway Association. Mike talks about the plans of the new association.
