Vintage Roadside gears up for Route 66!

Final planning is underway for our trip out to Tulsa for the National Trust for Historic Preservation annual conference. We'll be posting daily with preservation stories, roadside observations, and loads of photos. We hope you enjoy following along with us as we make our way from Portland, Oregon out to Tulsa, Oklahoma. Departure date is scheduled for Tuesday, October 14th!

Pictured above is a vintage postcard showing the leisure benefits of the Silver Streak Travel Trailer. We'll be moving along a little faster than these folks but those lawn chairs sure bring back memories! I remember them starting to fray and then shortly after one of the bands would break leaving you to be somehow sucked into the framework of the chair. You just don't get that level of random excitement with chairs these days......
