Flying A in Truckee brings memories of Flying A in Menlo Park

Flying A_Truckee_070911The Adventurers have started a two week stay in Tahoe Donner where they plan to hike, kayak, bike and swim. After a long day of traveling yesterday, the began their acclimation to 6,700 feet elevation with a three-mile hike on the Tahoe Donner Association trail system.

They then went into Truckee for lunch at the Squeeze In, which lived up to its ratings. What got both their attention, though, was a Flying A sign, a brand of gasoline they both remembered from their childhood in Menlo Park.

Yep, you have to be a certain age to remember the Flying A…
