Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

NC Bound Fall 2013-- Part 1: Driving There
I left home in Spring grove, Illinois, at 9:30 AM September 6th with the mpg reading 26.9 and set the trip odometer to zero. Drove 120 to 47 and then way south to I-74 near Champagne. //// Of course, my tunes were on and was listening to Luke Bryan's new CD Crash My Party until Bob Stroud came on with his Ten at Ten on WDRV, 97.1 FM. Today was music from 1967, a personal favorite year for me: //// STRAWBERRY FIELDS-- Beatles, I AM THE WALRUS-- Beatles, NOBODY BUT ME-- Human Beinz (as fine a garage rock, frat rock song as was ever performed), LET'S SPEND THE NIGHT TOGETHER-- Rolling Stones, LIVE FOR TODAY-- Grass Roots, GIVE ME GOOD LOVIN'-- Spencer Davis Group, I DIG ROCK AND ROLL MUSIC-- Peter Paul and Mary, HEY JOE-- Jimi Hendrix, MR. SOUL-- Buffalo Springfield and STEPPING STONE-- Monkees //// I listened to it on 96.9 FM until I had to switch over to 97.1 FM as got farther south.
