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

Hanging Out With the Jims

I was wandering around Mound City, MO taking pics of anything of interest. I snapped an old movie theater with my Rolleiflex 2.8 and moved on. I was weaving through the residential areas when this strange little building, maybe it was once a salon, came into view. I turned the truck down the hill to get a shot.

And They Say You Can’t Go Back

They say “you can’t go back.” Well, I just did it. I threw a few clothes in a bag, packed some cameras and film, put on my boots, my hat, and headed south toward Lamar, Missouri in my ‘96 Ford F-150 with Biggie in the back seat.

Small Delays

Day Four: When driving old cars it’s always a good idea to look under them for puddles and parts. I guess the same could be said for old people.
