The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

Along the Lincoln Highway

Highway 30, Nebraska

Note the 'California' license plate

 I liked their prices but unfortunately they had no diesel.

 Good thing I wasn't wanting an ice cream at the time.  
  No store or shop was to be seen anywhere.


  1. What you all can find on a trip. I like it.

  2. An elegant gas station. Never seen such one before.

  3. I read my hometown paper last night and found that the Rotary Club is disbanding...not enough businesses in town anymore to support it. So sad to see a small town deteriorate, but makes for great pictures from the past. $1.31 for gas? I can't even remember.

  4. I'm enjoying your travels, great pictures. You have a new follower.

  5. I often see $1.31 at our gas pumps - unfortunately it's per litre, though, and translates to more like $4.96 a U.S. gallon.

    No fair showing an ice cream cone and then not selling any!

  6. I presume that the traffic has moved elsewhere leaving this community 'high and dry'. Literally high and dry with no diesel or ice-cream.

  7. There is this American realities TV series called 'Pickers' on our cable TV, Frank and Mike's travels. I like these places and things so unfamiliar and yet interesting. Enjoyed your photo journals. Thanks.

  8. You find the neatest places. I love that first shot.

  9. I like all these...they have a lonely feel.
