"I'm suggesting that this is the year to get out there and log some long miles with a clear conscience even as the lawn goes to hell and the house plants wither and the cat takes off in search of a better situation. Load up the bike and get out on the road while it still retains some vestiges of its old Americana charm, while there are still some lingering drive-ins and tourist courts and rail car diners and eccentric roadside attractions. Get out there before the pall of national chain franchise business creeps into every corner of the land with its bland homogeneity, focus-group menus, calculated decors and cynical parodies of Main Street America. The clock's ticking."
