This 1950's brochure for Clearwater Lake in Piedmont, Missouri brought back some memories of family trips in the '70's.

This week's TV Guides comes courtesy of 1981 with a cover featuring a trio of B's: B.J., Bear and Blonde. I was going to say "Bimbo" but that seemed a bit harsh. But seriously, her character's name was "Stacks".

Today we visit another tourist destination via brochure. This time it's Oakhill Court cabins and campground in Cassville, Missouri. "Ideally located near Roaring River and Table Rock Lake". I've never visited Oakhill, but Roaring River and Table Rock were both vacation destinations for my family when I was a kid.

One of my memories of family vacations back in the 1970's was of my father stopping at gas stations and getting a free map. The station attendant would even highlight our route.
This map of Missouri dates from 1961 and touts the Show Me state as "Family Vacation Land". It has some great graphics on it, plus a message from the governor.

As usual, a day late (if not a dollar short), I present the Bicentennial Issue of TV Guide. At first glance, you might think, like I did, that this was from July of 1976,but it's from July of 1975, heralding in the Bicentennial year. Not much to say on this one. Just enjoy.
