I can’t remember why I was looking through issues of the Thresher from the fall of 1975, but I’m sure I had some good reason. Whatever it was, much to my surprise I found this from the week before Thanksgiving:
I had completely forgotten about this phenomenon and this clipping jolted me into some vivid recollections of finding a ride home for the holidays using word of mouth and a bulletin board in the Memorial Union at Iowa State. I had a couple of very strange trips before I managed to acquire a car of my own. I’m not sure but I don’t think this is done much anymore.
I also noticed some familiar names from the comment section in the Thresher photo credits that fall.
FYI: I’m taking the day off tomorrow. I’m going to need all my energy to deal with the relatives. See you Friday.
