Hither and thither and yon...

I am looking for interesting or weird places to stop on a once-in-a-lifetime epic cross-country road trip. I have a month to traverse the country. I'm planning on stopping at the House on the Rock in WI, the Grand Canyon, and the Jedediah Smith Redwoods Park. Anywhere along this route that I shouldn't miss, either for food or attractions? I am looking particularly for things I would never see or eat if I were not on a road trip, or wonderful places to camp. The route is inside... [more inside]

Long Gone Alpine Campground Orchard Park NY

In the 1980s there was a campground in Orchard Park, NY (a suburb of Buffalo) on Ellicott Road. It closed sometime around 1989. It was called Alpine. I can't find a single mention of it on the internet and would love to know more about the place. It was right here. The camping is long gone, but the quarry is still there and some of the buildings are still standing. I only have fuzzy memories of going there as a kid and I'm trying to learn more about it.

book recommendation for armchair vacation

i am hoping you guys can help me find a great book to read. i loved bill bryson's "a walk in the woods." do you know of one that would be in that vein (travel/ humor) but dealing with car camping, or national parks, or maybe even driving with your family cross country? alternately, how about something similar to Annie dillard's "pilgrim at tinker creek" but more specific to the canyonlands area? thank you!
