    From what little research I did, apparently GUUL is an African petroleum dealer. I found current addresses listed for locations in Kenya and Somalia, and a reference to them in a South African news article.

    That backwards lean-to would have made a sporting proposition of getting in or out the door in a rain storm.

    I can't figure out how a strong wind hasn't taken that roof down the road to someplace else. But it''s obviously been there for some time, so it must be in a sheltered place, or...?

    ⇧ Those screeching tires you hear and that cloud of dust you see is the Fading Fasts' car turning quickly into this place to buy - what? - they have no idea, but they are not going to pass by the Indian Trail Trading Post without going in to take a look-see.

    Gotta have one of those brightly colored feather headdresses, and the tomahawk with the rubber head, lol. Oh, and a pecan log, too.

    I had one of those many moons ago.
    Don't know what happened to it but I don't think it would fit 50 years later. :(
     
  14. For as long as I can remember this station has been closed up. Rumor has it there is a 1930s election poster for a local Congressman (who was my neighbor) inside. I was married in a morning coat/waistcoat/trousers he had gifted me and that he had worn to FDR's 1934 inauguration. I would love to see inside this station!

    We had a store like that in my home town when I was growing up. It was the place to go for tom-toms with old inner-tube skins.

    What, no jackalope head mounted and ready to hang on the wall of your mancave?

    Let's not forget the DIY moccasins and tooled-and-beaded leather wallet kits.
