THE FAMOUS WALL DRUG STORE

I've always loved cheesy roadside places and the Wall Drug Store is one of the best.

I've been wanting to try my hand at uploading a video to YouTube, so I picked two clips that I shot back in 2004 at the Wall Drug. (I'm impressed on how easy it was to upload!)

So sit back and enjoy the pics and vids and while you're at it drink a tall glass of ice water!

Awesome! I was there in 1986 when I was 12 years old! I'm looking forward to taking my own family someday. Along with another stop at Flintstone's Bedrock City in nearby Custard, SD.

Ever been to South of the Border in South Carolina?

My attempt to experience Wall Drug on a cross country roadtrip a few years back was curtailed by car trouble. The repairs set us back several hours and by the time we reached Wall Drug, it was closed.

Now, thanks to you, I finally get to see what I missed out on. Another road trip might be in the works.

Sadly I've failed to make it to Wall Drug. I've had plans that were twarted as well, but it wasn't nearly as heartbreaking as rozum's story.


Wonderful videos! I must get there.. tis the final frontier!

(P.S. you must be getting a ton of traffic because you were my top referrer yesterday)

I took your suggestion about the ice water, my friend, and I just want you to know that it enriched my life in ways I never thought possible.

Bless you, Todd. Bless you.

Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to go take a leak.

Ed -- I missed the Bedrock City since they were closed the week when we were there. Someday I hope go to South of the Border.

Percy -- Thanks for the comment and thanks for the plug on your fun blog!

John -- Oh man I bet that was a frustrating trip. Hopefully next time it will work out.

Kirk -- You'll make it there someday! It is one of the best roadtrips I've ever taken. Glad to send some traffic your way!

Matthew -- Yeah I think that water might just be the fountain of youth. Of course you shouldn't be thinking about a fountain right now since you need to find a bathroom.
