THURSDAY, September 6th at 7pm: DON'T MAKE ME PULL OVER! Begins

In the days before cheap air travel, families in America didn’t so much take vacations as survive them. Between home and destination lay  hundreds – perhaps thousands of miles of road, and dozens of annoyances.

During his childhood, Richard Ratay experienced all of them; from being crowded into the back seat with noogie-happy older brothers, to picking out a souvenir only to find that a better one might have been had at the next attraction, to dealing with a dad who didn’t believe in bathroom breaks.

Caledonia presents selections from this informal history of the family road trip: part historical and part reminiscence, live in voice.
