Skulls And Horns

We’ve seen boots on top of fence posts before, but never skulls and horns! That’s what we came across while we were on Highway 14 in Colorado. Is it art? Or maybe an original version of Burma Shave signs?! Regardless, it was a prime example of why we travel the backroads. Y’dstoti! It’s worth the trip!

Burger Bar On State Street In Bristol Virginia

Yes, that’s an egg on my burger. That’s a “BZ Burger” from the Burger Bar in Bristol, Virginia. Along with the cheese, onion, and “secret spice,” maybe this should be called a protein burger! Regardless, it was delicious. Add parmesan fries and a milkshake and its simply divine! Roy had a cheeseburger, fries and a shake to round out our meal. If we ate like this every day, we would be round!!

The recently restored diner is iconic burger joint. The staff made us feel like regulars, even though we were first-timers from Iowa. Whether you’re a country music buff, a race fan, or just another traveler, when you’re in Bristol, you really do need to check out the Burger Bar. It is worth the trip!

The Geographic Center Of The United States

Maybe you’ve never thought about where the center of the 48 contiguous United States would be if it was an equal thickness cardboard cut-out and balanced on a pole to find the center. In 1918 some folks did just that and found it to be near Lebanon, Kansas. Now you know! People stop by daily to check it out, according to the volunteer on duty the day we did just that.
