The Road through your Windshield...

  1. That route took you out of your way about 80 miles but the scenery is way better.

    Hey L,

    YES...That is what the convenience store clerk told us. But, it was either go back and follow his advice or sit in traffic for the next 3 hours. My wife took over driving and she was lead-footing it through the lakes area and into KC. Sunny all the way and then rain for a day in KC. It was disappointing that we did not get to finish our road trip to the Eastern seaboard.

    But, heading West gave us insights to travel that we would not have seen on the way home. (We had planned on a Northern route originally heading West, Great Lakes, North Dakota, Montana, Idaho, etc.) That included the Plains, Rockies, the National Parks and even a sunset cruise on a Lake Powell flat bottom boat. That detour was supposed to happen as the rest of the week was pretty outstanding on the way home. A new adventure...

    We loved K.C. the food, people we met, and places we walked around and enjoyed. It was a respite from all of that madness in the Midwest, Summer, road construction, traffic jams. From that point Westward, there were a lot of "Roads Through Our Windshield..."
    The Eastern seaboard will be some time in the future…

    Speaking of the eastern seaboard, here's a shot from the Ocean City boardwalk during last years Cruisin OC... The car is a '55 Desoto Fireflite. 221.jpeg

    Hi Noel. You in "quarantine" like the rest of us? I have watched a few videos from SM and got to see my car cruising. Is Full Custom Garage on Foxtel?
    That picture of the roadster was done years ago when Steven Kelly(Pauls son) did a photo shoot that they used in an overseas magazine.

    I'm probably wrong, but to me they look more like daffodils or jonquils or some wild flower.

    Hey LBCD,

    Thanks for showing the updated recent photos of the road to the beaches along the OC coastline. That road was home from 1959 surf trips to last year, when I decided the PCH route was better than the freeway going to and from the Lions Dragstrip Museum. (It usually is...) If the proposal goes through, that Naval Ammunition Base will be getting some new changes in that area by the bridge/Surfside area. I am sure it is on hold for now.
    That bridge at the northern border of Surfside was the key spot to check out the Surfside Jetty, next to the Naval Base. When the swells were right, that place got huge waves rolling down the jetty. But, the key was access, since the community was private and gate guarded. Even though everyone could see those waves breaking, after finding scarce parking, it was a long walk to the jetty and back. So, most went on the same road to Huntington Beach Pier. Otherwise, it was locals only or a few brave souls from LB.
    Note: that spot where the photo was taken was the favorite vehicle check point for the local CHP group. No one could turn around and evade the checkpoint. I am not sure if they have continued doing that particular spot for check points, but the locals could not get around it by any means. My 1965 El Camino was fairly stock, but they caught the super high beam headlights I installed (in the place of the regular high beam lights) for high desert driving with our motorcycles in the back.

    It is disheartening that the situation is what it takes for the road to be back to 1960 usage. But, one day, we will all be back in play. (It was noted that the CHP gave out over 400 tickets on the empty freeways for speeders. "Watch your 6...") As always, great photos and very timely...
