It’s the one year anniversary of my novella, Summer of ’78 A Road Trip. Here’s some exciting news; there are folks in the United Kingdom reading it! How cool is that? To celebrate the anniversary I’m posting pictures from the trip. Most of these pictures are not in the book.
If you haven’t bought the book yet, please do. It’s available through Amazon. To everyone that has purchased it, thank you very much for your support.
Fralia, Jules, House, MK, and me. The next day Fralia and I hit the road.

My recollections of the trip are clear, however I can’t place the campgrounds even with pictures.
We fished a lot.
And got sick and tired of eating trout!
Quite a look by Fralia! Cutoff overalls, flannel shirt, and white Adidas with no socks.
The Grand Tetons
Middle of nowhere, Idaho
Somewhere in Idaho, my favorite camping spot of the trip. We felt so liberated.
Fralia and the dead squirrel
Fraila sipping a Coors. I think we were supposed to return the Mt. Carmel sweat shirts, but no one ever did.

My cousin Ty and Fralia in Aunt Dot’s backyard. There are so many things I love about this photo: the sweet chaise lounge cushion, the patio light, the hanging macrame pot holder, the transistor radio by Ty’s foot, and Lucky Lager in cans!
One of my all time favorite photographs.
Please stay safe everyone 😷
Great pics, thanks for posting! What’s in the cigar box at Aunt Dot’s?
and nothing like “my” Idaho… going to be doing a shoot soon by those Grand Tetons very soon.
Super enjoyable to see this!!
I love the hair on House… Coors the drink of champions.
He had the Randy Jones look going!
Just finished your book. Loved it! It’s almost like I was there hearing both of your voices.
Thanks a lot!
Just closed “Summer of 78” after reading it through in one sitting. Brought me back to my own trips around this amazing Country. Great story even with the incredibly sad ending. Reminds us to cherish the good times while we have them.
Thanks for the comment Scott G. I’m really glad you enjoyed the book.
