Dowdell’s Knob Trail-FDR’s dearest spots.

One of my favorite history trips, Dowdell’s Knob…

 

Look at this view! I mean it’s gorgeous.

Here is one more!

 

Like any History buff my cohort and I woke up at 4am to drive two hours to get a day trip of FDR history that day. It was magnificent, while we missed the sunrise to bask in the moment that FDR felt every time he sat on this ridge.

 

The magic was still there.

 

 

 

 

Wondering, what type of deals he made and what history was made right at this spot.  I even met the man, I was a little nervous.

 

 

 

 

 

We took a moment to step on the dead center of the mountain.

 

Our journey continued.

 

 

A look back in time-Diners the home of the true American love story

I can remember growing up in New York, not the City but in the suburbs and spending my nights with my friends eating burgers and fries at a diner. If memory recalls it was called Spotlight Dinner. It was magical and it was just good food and great adolescent conversations. This is what drove us, this also started my love for burgers. Still does to this day, just a short order cook making some burgers and slapping them on a bun.

This memory was driven by checking out Old Photo Archive, I started thinking how many love story started with a Dinner? How many people shared their first two person Milk Shake straw fight?

And most importantly how good was the food?
