YOU SHOULD HAVE GONE…
THE TRIP TO THE PETERSON WAS GREAT..BUT MORE PARTICIPATION WOULD HAVE MADE THE VISIT EVEN BETTER..!!
TWO CARS LEFT BIG BEAR AT 8:00 am AND WENT DOWN THE HILL ON HWY 18 TO THE SAN BERNARDINO TRAIN STATION..
IT WAS SO EASY TO GET THE TICKETS..AND WE BOARDED..WENT TO THE UPPER DECK AND ENJOYED THE SCENERY AS WE SPED TOWARD
UNION STATION IN DOWNTOWN LA..
A BITE TO EAT.. AT A SANDWICH SHOP NEAR THE STATION AND WE GOT ON THE SUBWAY HEADED WEST TO WILSHIRE AND WESTERN..
SEVERAL SHORT STOPS LATER.. WE WENT UP TOP TO AN AWAITING BUS TO FINISH THE FINAL LEG OF OUR TRIP AND THE “PETERSON”..
THE MUSEUM IS A FANTASTIC PLACE FOR THE AUTOMOBILE ENTHUSIAST..
WE HAD AN APPOINTMENT WITH A “DOCENT” WHO WOULD SHOW US AROUND AND EXPLAIN THE DIFFERENT DISPLAY’S.. BUT WE HAD AN HOUR OR MORE BEFORE HE WOULD BE AVAILABLE..SO WE STRUCK OUT ON OUR OWN..
LOT’S TO SEE IN THE TWO STORIES OF THE MUSIUM..OLD TIME BUGGIES” TO “BATMOBILES”..
“DRAGSTERS” TO “LIMOUSINES”.. THEY HAVE SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY..
FOOD WAS AGAIN ON OUR MINDS.. SO WE ATE AT “JOHNNY ROCKETS” IN THE MUSIUM..BEST ONION RINGS THAT I’VE EVER TASTED..OUR DOCENT WAS ON TIME AND HE EXPLAINED THE MANY FACETS OF EACH DISPLAY THAT THE MUSIUM HAD TO OFFER..WE BOARDED THE BUS FOR THE RETURN TRIP TO THE SUBWAY STATION IN LATE AFTERNOON..WE ARRIVED AT THE SAN BERNARDINO TRAIN STATION IN EARLY EVENING..AND BACK TO BIG BEAR..
AGAIN IT WOULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER OUTING IF WE HAD MORE PEOPLE PARTICIPATE.. BUT SOMETIMES WORK KEEPS US FROM DOING STUFF.. I DON’T THINK YOU WILL EVER HEAR A DYING MAN SAY: “I WISH I HAD TAKEN MORE TIME TO WORK HARDER”.. GEOFF
