Old Plank Road

Post by Raoul Von S. »

On the road between Yuma and Holtville, Arizona. Vehicles mired
in the sand dunes and this was an early day answer. I presume this
little "siding" was for passing vehicles going in the opposite direction ?
Or were morning hours for one direction and afternoon hours for the
other ?

I do not see another siding all the way to the horizon.

Back when it wasn't just travel, it was adventure. The wife's grandparents came from Missouri to California in the late 1920s. Wishing I had recorded some of those stories Granddad told me back in the late '60s.

I have always looked at road trips as "adventure". I may have destination,
but everything in between is fair game, and lots of ample time is planned in
to do the trip x10 for all the adventure I always find, especially in an old car.
