Once again - great photos in the "Friday Open Road". The photo of the float plane in the bay with the brown bear on shore was a nice reminder of "home" for me.
Looks like a lot of Landies today. The two girls sailing out in the trapeze are awesome.
CW how can you continue to find better and better and better photos for this weekly post? It’s a highlight every week for me. Thank you for the research.
As I come across them during the week, I save them until I have enough. Easy!
Looks like a Porsche Spyder on the runway. Two young actors killed themselves driving Spyders in the hills of Los Angeles in the '50s. Most people know about James Dean. I wonder how many people know about the other.
OK Spill it.
James Dean, 1931-1955, dead at 24.Tom Pittman, 1932-1958, dead at 26.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Pittman#Deathhttps://www.imdb.com/name/nm0685964/bioAnd I stand corrected. James Dean's crash was well north of L.A., near Paso Robles.
Thanks. I looked him up on IMDB. I'm familiar with him as he was in some of the old western TV shows we have watched. Gunsmoke, Wells Fargo, Have Gun Will Travel, etc. Didn't recognize the name but did remember his face. Looks like it took 3 weeks to find him and the crashed car. grisly
What a fantastic set, 4 up is end of the road, and if becalmed in middle of the ocean may as well be with her
What a ponytail!!! 😍
I echo the above comments... love your Friday Open Road stuff... you're fantastic at "curating" this kind of thing.. if that is the right use of that trendoid word.I enjoy trying to figure out where they are as well.. anyone have a guess on the second one ? I'm thinking S. America ? maybe the southern parks in Chile ?
How many mutts can you cram inna old truk?
...and Thank You for not giving the locations of the pics. Although I do wonder sometimes. Best to keep it as it is.
Be that as it may, does anyone know the location of #7?
Could be the Moqui Dugway in the Valley of the Gods.
I'll take the cab full of pups..
Fishing on the lake.
The first photo of the road has to be pretend. It would take longer just to drive the pilings for the bridge than to remove the debris. The again, sounds like a perfect government project.
My favorite is the one with the dog.
