    Yesterday I went to a swap meet in High River that got rescheduled to another date. Guess I wasn't supposed to buy anything. Anyhow, there was a museum there to check out along with Eamon's service station that was moved there from Calgary. Nice vintage service station. IMG_1337.JPG

  13. Up until the 70s, it was possible to write to the major oil companies, and ask them for travel information. In 1970, I was transferred to Laredo AFB from a base in Canada. I wrote ESSO, and they sent me a complete folder with maps, with multiple routes, for the shortest way, the best way, and the most scenic route. There was also other travel information, such as hotel brochures, customs information, and other travel tips. It made planning a breeze.
    Those days are long gone.
