Road Tripping: Roadside Goodies from Western New York

After deciding to hang a left at the decision point, I set off to see the Whispering Giant in Dunkirk, New York. Since I was just ’round the way, I also decided to see a muffler man or two and some other roadside gems.

When I got up that morning in Williamsport, Pa. I hadn’t planned on ending up near Buffalo, New York but that just fortifies my method of traveling without reservations. You just never know where you’ll end up when you’re free to follow your whims.

I managed to see one of the Irving, NY Muffler Man Indians. My GPS kept sending me around in circles trying to find the other one. I got frustrated and decided to forget about it. My patience was done for the night.

While I sat outside inhaling a cheeseburger, I called home and talked to my family for a few minutes. They wondered what the heck I was doing near Buffalo and where I was going. I didn’t really have an answer to either question. But an hour or so later, I pulled in to the Holiday Inn Express in Salamanca, NY and finally took my boots off for the night.

    I haven’t seen one of those Bob’s Big Boy things for probably 50 years. (Boy that statement made me feel old…)

    Dolly Dimples is my favorite!

    I really need to sit in front of the big screen to read blogs more often. I can appreciate the pics so much better. Typing comments is far easier, too.
