My mother would pack, or should I say hide, our presents in the station wagon and off we'd go from Maryland to New York. She normally traveled at night because then we'd sleep while she drove. I remember one trip with heavy fog and having to follow the fog line on the interstate because of limited visibility. I also remember another trip following behind a snow plow in a snow storm. The highlight of the trip was stopping at Howard Johnson's in Pittston, PA which was sort of a halfway point.
Believe it or not, I still have my stocking shown in the picture above. I get it out every year and hang it on our mantel.
