Day 1-Trip to Garden of the Gods in 1942 by side car

My Great Aunt Myrtle and my Uncle Grant Hicks were a pretty unique couple.  They traveled the country with her riding in the side car and him driving an Indian motorcycle.  She kept a journal of this trip and I will share her writings with you.

Page one states :  Our vacation
  " We started out May 29th 1942 about 5:30 in the evening.

 Nothing much happened till just  this  of  Iola, Kan and I was stung by a bee.  It was pretty painful.  We rode to Wichita.  Cabins were very hard to get.  We finally got a place that I call a rat hole.

  And that's the first evening..."
