Heading to Amarillo

How about another Kooky’s Road Trip?

This time, a short one, to Amarillo, TX.

Apparently, I’m giving a keynote speech at the Panhandle Press Association convention. My guess is that all the other speakers Roger Estlack invited were busy.

Cigars for this trip courtesy of my brother Christopher S Viers.

We'll take a different set of wheels this time. How about a 1983 Mazda RX-7? She may not be the prettiest thing on the road, but she runs great!

First stop! Picking up a passenger to Wichita. Mark Sanderson is tagging along for a few hours.

Cigars, Bavarian bier, and great conversation with Dieter, the owner of the Cafe Bahnhof in Wynoka, Oklahoma is on the horizon. Also a short stop in Canadian to see my old friend Laurie Ezzell Brown.


Russell Viers

I'm just a guy who finds the world an interesting place and likes to capture certain moments with a camera. They aren't for sale, or anything. I just like them. Well, usually. I've taken a lot of photos I don't like, as well.

Suggested Stories

Losing Her Allsup's Burrito Virginity

Day Eight: For the whole story here, I need to backtrack about seven years, maybe. Not sure, my life’s been a blur. I was driving home from Pampa, TX and staying off the main roads. I wanted to see what was going on behind the scenes...

Neon Lights and Cheap Motels

Motels are always iffy. One must keep the expectations low and hope for vacancy...

Heading to Lamar With My Old Cameras

I'm planning a short, impromptu Kooky's Road Trip to the Lamar Free Fair, in Lamar. MO. I'll wander south this afternoon, drop by the fair tomorrow and blow through some film, then head back north at some point.
