|I met Carl Houston and his (camera-shy) wife at a rest area on I-5 near Canyonville, Oregon. The rest area sign said "Free Coffee", and I was ready.
They volunteer this service to aid travellers and surely reduce being tired induced traffic accidents. Thank you Carl for yor community service and the nice chat we had during my brief stay at your rest stop venue.
I look forward to getting an email from you.
