“I wanted to go to California.”

50 years ago this summer, my Mom loaded her three sons into our Chevy station wagon and lit out from Virginia to California to Michigan and back. This is a day-by-day recounting of the nine week trip, including excerpts from Maw’s diary (with permission), old-timey paper maps and AAA tour books, as well as photos and impressions of those who were transported and transformed.

Note: This is NOT a new road trip. It is a recounting of the one that happened 50 years ago.
