Adventures with the Silver Twinkie
America before the Interstates - 1959

In the summer of 1959 my family (four kids and two adults) set out from New Jersey,
heading for California in a 15 foot Airstream trailer and a Rambler station wagon.

It was a journey across an America that has largely passed out of existance.

On this page I plan to tell a tale of that journey in words and pictures.
