One of my favorite places to RailfanThe Elkhorn Inn in West Virginia offers great railfanning, wonderful meals, and even better conversation and hospitality.
It's always fun planning the next road trip. This time we'll be visiting Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina and wrapping up in Georgia.
There are lots of fun things to see, but part of the fun is finding the unexpected along the way.
I'm looking forward to some new photos of Americana to share along with maybe a few trains!
Coke or Pepsi. The age old question.
I've always been a Coca-Cola guy. These days it is liable to be a Coke-Zero due to being sugar free, but the I've just always preferred the taste of Coke to Pepsi. I am old enough to remember how horrible New Coke was when it tried to become Pepsi.
Living near Atlanta, I'm in the middle of "Coke Country" but even around here there are Pepsi lovers.
Which do you prefer and why? Let me know in the comments
Both Coke and Pepsi have had great advertising over the years and I really enjoy when I find something great from either of them to photograph.
If you enjoy Americana and old advertising, I hope you'll follow my Rustedrailamericana account over on Instagram!
While walking along the beach last week, Patrice and I saw the Amelia Research and Recovery Company's ship docked at the pier.
Here is a photo I took of them while walking.
It's always fun finding others who share my interest in those Americana wonders along the road.
I was lucky enough to be featured by In Search of Quirk over on instagram!
They have a feed full of those things at make America special.
