Love Isn’T Just For Subaru, A Dying Breed & Trains

Recommended Posts

*

Subaru seems to have the “love” market cornered these days, but that wasn’t always the case, as evident in these 4 “love-related” vintage ads….
(The 4 old ads featured Tuesday had friends, help & service in mind; to see ‘em, visit the home page & choose “Automotive Daily” from the drop down menu on the right-hand side!)
Speaking of love, I’m not alone in enjoying evenings by fires … or am I part of a dying breed!?
Finally, I’ve never taken a train cross country, but maybe someday. Anyone else love old train cars, like this one, as well?

Took the Alaska Railroad from Anchorage to Fairbanks, with a two-night stopover in Denali National Park, in the summer of 2010, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Still more of a car/plane guy than a train guy, but an overnight train trip is something I would like to experience when I have the time (come on, retirement!). I think cross-country might be a big too long, but I'd love to do the Canadian rail trip between Vancouver and Calgary, or v.v., across the Rockies.

That Alaska Railroad sounds great.... I'm definitely a car guy ... not all that fond of flying. The rails ... have a certain appeal ... partly b/c you can still see things as you are going along. Sometimes I wish I could just retire & start enjoying some of the things I'd love to be enjoying right now....

No, you're not alone! I love sitting by the fire in the evening, either indoors or out. I haven't camped in 20 years and I miss a good campfire. But I had a very nice beach fire on Cape Cod a few years back with family. Throughout the winter, I put a nice fire in the fireplace and sit to read or watch TV. My wife roasts marshmallows and I roast hotdogs!
