Just nice to hit the road.


It was fun seeing all of the different local eateries you went to and learning about vestibules! They definitely don't have those here in SD, haha. The loose meat sandwiches (served with a spoon for stray meat) looked good. It was also cool seeing the roadside stops you took. What an adventure!


It is, Bill. There wasn't an urgency when leaving, so the drive back was filled with more stops and exploring, which was vacation-like. Wish we were on the road right now, even with the snowy weather.


Coney Islands (the storefront)also serve loose meat, but served in a steamed hot dog bun, since a true coney is a hot dog, cc. The texture and flavor of a Maid Rite is unique-and the tradition is strong: any player who was on the Iowa football team that beat the University of Michigan two weeks ago gets Maid Rites for life. The trip home allowed for a bit more time and not having done that 'northern route' because of weather(I remember one year, traffic was detoured from Colorado to New Mexico), going both ways in the summer was so nice! I'm so glad to see you click the links: wanting to write and teach or learn with reading is how I roll.


I'd pass on the snow.😀


Man, Gene and Jude's....has it been over six years already?


The Mister and I both learned to drive in snow, Bill, plus we each grew up walking to and from school in it, so that kind of weather is missed...for a brief time each year...

I was surprised your post was back in 2010, too, Kirk. Crazy how time flies.
