Adventures with Cordy, September 19, 1976

[Below is days 13 in a series of road trip diary installments. To get the full context, start with Adventures with Cordy: A Road Trip Diary and follow the trail from there. --Amy]

September 19, (Sunday)

Drove down the Pennsylvania Turnpike to Interchange No. 7, turned off for a tour of La Trobe, Pa., Arnold Palmer’s home town and saw his golf course. Had breakfast at the Mountain View Inn and it was so good each of the travelers must have gained 3 or 4 lbs. On to Gettysburg where our happy hours contributed to several more “Dead Soldiers” to Gettysburg records.

A "dead soldier" is slang for an empty liquor bottle, beer bottle or beer can.

Arnold Palmer has more than a golf course now. He also sells cars and has his own airport.
