About 2 week before the 2007 Lone Star Round Up I ran into local creative Rod Powell at the local Foster Freeze. Rod asked me if I wanted to be his co-pilot on a 2 week road trip to Austin & back in his 1956 Chevy handyman wagon. The next day I went to my boss and told him that in a week I was leaving for 2 weeks. I told him I wasn't asking I was telling him, and that if I had a job when I came back I would be very happy. Luckily he said I would still have a job.
I sure am glad I went Foster's that night. The road trip is still one of my favorite memories to date. Rod and I first stopped at Lee Pratt's place in Los Angeles and followed him & Suzanne through route 66, interstate 10, and stopped at many amazing places. We didn't use smartphones or a GPS device all we had was Lee's memory and an old atlas...
Here are a few shots I took of Rod's Chevy wagon & Lee's shoebox along the way. Enjoy!
Thanks for looking!
