Ventura Highway

Dear Dan,

I don't remember the year. Obviously after 1972; after Dan graduated from high school and possibly during his time working for Joe Ammerman. My best guess is sometime around 1977 - 1979. Dan went to California for some reason. I talked to him on the phone when he cam back. He rented a car, which turned out to be a Pontiac Ventura, and he drove down the Ventura Highway. America's "Ventura Highway" came on the radio. Dan laughed and told me he thought that was overkill but it gave him such a high. I think fondly of that moment so I put "Ventura Highway" on my Zen and Rhapsody playlists.
