My son forwarded me this Smithsonian article entitled "When America’s Titans of Industry and Innovation Went Road-Tripping Together."

You all may be way ahead of me and have seen this already, but in case not, enjoy the article, photos, and especially the video!

Be sure to click "Continue to this site" when the first page advertisement comes up.

There is an excellent book titled " There to Breath the Beauty " by Norman Brauer ( now out of print ) that documents in great detail eight of these trips.

Best regards, John Page, Australia

Abebooks.com has several. Best deal is $75.00. The rest are over $1,000.

Great 6 minute video part way down the page of the link that Susan listed. Is that Henry who jumps up and climbs to the top of the tree?

That is the exact same way I go camping...in my jacket and tie with all the hired help to do all the chores and cooking.
