Default Amelia and Bobbi

They were on my second ever DQ trip in 1974. At the time Amelia had 94 trips, Bobbi 31. I thought at the time that I'd never catch Amelia but that I could overtake Bobbi, which I eventually did. I think Amelia died shortly after that, but I enjoyed several trips visiting with Bobbi and her husband and hearing about some of their earlier DQ adventures. And as Dale previously alluded to, those early DQ passengers didn't do 3 day trips, they took the 21 day round trips, sometimes several a year. The longest I ever stayed on was 28 days, but it included a 7 day Cincy/Pittsburgh roundtrip, a 7 day Kentucky Lake roundtrip, a 3 day Cincy weekend rt, and an 11 day Cincy/St. Paul trip. That was the year my car was paid for, and every extra buck went to a DQ trip, something I've never regretted!
