I shouldn’t be looking at vintage postcards of Portland hotels, it is making me really, really want to drive across the U.S. I wonder how many times I’ve driven across the U.S.? The epic drive was when I was a kid (obviously a passenger), when we drove from Salem, Oregon to West Bend, Wisconsin to Florida. Did the whole thing in reverse too.
Not that November is a great time to be driving through the plains or over the Rockies, but holy man, seeing postcards of hotels from the 50s and 60s, and remembering staying in similar hotels in the 70s, I just want to go!
