    Awright, you guys know about road trips. The people you meet along the way really make things memorable. Well, my wing man and I left Joseph, Oregon a few days ago and we were heading for Bend with the John Day area in our sights. We were amblin' along enjoying Oregon when we stumbled on this little service station in Dale, Oregon.

    Being old farts, it was time for a break so we went inside the station for some snacks. Wow, did we step back into time! Check this out:

    Yup, this place was the post office for the community and there was stuff available there I hadn't seen in years like a green/red box of Remington 257 Roberts ammo. The lady who ran the place was personality plus! She'd move back there to care for her aging parents and, after they passed, her sister moved back to help with the store and the ranch.

    She told my wing man that a cougar had killed her horse a few days ago and she'd shot at it with her pistol and missed. "It would have been different if I would had my rifle." We spent a little more time there and it was worth it.

    Stop in if you're in the area. You won't be sorry.

    Yes. The royal theater still there. The courthouse, the old jail, all seen in the movie. The place where the pool hall was is an empty lot. Lady there said it was torn down not long after the movie was made. And of course this gas station.

    Clack Service Station in Saco, Montana USA. I've stopped here a few times in the last 10 years, sadly it is no longer being kept up, the restrooms are now locked and the building is falling apart.

    Thanks Captain, it was pretty neat. It is on Highway 77 about a mile south of the Broad River at Saxxon Mattox Rd before going into Elberton. It is the Old Goose Pond community, close to where Governor Mathews Home-site is.

    Thanks. That will be a fun new route the next time I head up that way. I'm usually on 17 or 22.
