A reproduction of a 1961 Shasta travel trailer. They made only 1,961 of these units this year. Of course they have all the modern upgrades. This photo was taken at King's Mountain State Park, SC where they were having a gathering of vintage travel trailers.

Somewhere here in Old San Juan, PR there was once a bar known as "Georgie's Lucky 7". I have no idea if it's even there anymore or maybe it's under a different name. But this was one hot spot back in 1966. Cold beer and your own "personal social director". Those were the days... Does anyone know if it's still there? Although I doubt it, since it's been 48 years...

Where I once worked as a Corpsman... Miss those days.... Was attached to the 10th Marines 1965-68. Loved the duty there. I was taught a lot by the Marines. And what I really enjoyed was going to the firing range with them because they would teach me how to fire different weapons, even though I was a Corpsman, but it surely didn't hurt to know those things. Served with one of the most gung-ho Marines I had ever met there, Captain Benjamin and I think it was "F" Battery, 2nd battalion, 10th Marines. Really did admire this man. Damn, he was one hard dude. Did my first 25 mile hike with him, and from that day on this other Corpsman and myself were always his Corpsman when his unit went out in the field or on a float. Many good memories about all the Marines I had contact with while serving there at Camp Lejeune.
