As I'm preparing to drive from Southern California to Idaho, I found some interesting advice from the ad campaigns of the 1950's.
According to the above illustration, Coca Cola is the "Host of the Highways." I'm not likely to stumble across a red cooler, unless I traverse through a city that time forgot. Then again, not even road fatigue could make me miss a dispenser that big!
Then there's the clean-cut, kindly advice of the American truck driver, advising me to "make a frequent 'Coffee-Stop!'" Now, coffee is more my style, but I have never known caffeine to keep me awake. Sipping a hot beverage, however, has been known to do the trick!
