Tuesday, July 12, 1962. New Mexico, U.S. Route 66

The sun sets on another day of an epic quest for the promised land. Two youthful stalwarts, J. Snavely and M. Eckhardt, set forth across the dusty thoroughfares of our glorious republic. From Columbus all the way to Mexico's clip joints via New York City, New Orleans, Ciudad Juarez and, finally, Tijuana - and back. On their celebrated departure many of the most eloquent speechifiers in the land delivered impassioned orations. How the brass bands played! How the girls cheered and bestowed kisses upon our heroes' brows! O young and lusty adventurers, drink ye deep of the great spirit of the national highways, the mighty and ever-beckoning Road!
