  •  Way back in the late '70s (8+ / 0-)

    my roommate and I drove a potentially explosive Pinto cross country for a camping trip.  We drove up the West Coast from Mission Viejo and one of my most vivid memories is the heavy fog/ rain clouds 2 feet over your head part of the highway in Oregon along the ocean.  The driftwood was visible and stunning.

    Lovely diary, Ojibwa.  Virtual tip and actual rec.

      didn't meet this fella:

      Peyote Bill came over the hill
                in a Pinto painted in brown.
      A lone yellow feather hung 'round his neck
                and the way that it pointed was down...

        Her pinto lasted to about 33k miles -- battery blew up and destroyed the engine when we were camping in Connecticut.  Long time before cell phones.  Park ranger drove us to his lodge.  Oh, the good old days.

        Happy you and I are still alive, LinSea.

          smiled upon me, and my ole Blue died of old age, being bought for parts by a couple of young dudes at a time when $50 helped provide for m'son's birthmarking celebration.
