Upland! Have you ever stopped at Hendal's Ice Cream?
  Thu. 3/14/19 10:47pm Dean:

These "inland empire" towns can be pretty cool. James Fallows has written a bit about them, owing to his having grown up in Redlands. I used to travel from eastern LA County to Claremont for coffee and books. Not a long haul, but more than a handful of miles, and worth the trip.
  Thu. 3/14/19 10:48pm Dean:

Goddamn. My knee-jerk reaction is, "Stupid fucking Americans," but of course that isn't the case here.
  Thu. 3/14/19 10:48pm dano59:

Wow, great stuff in this set. This kinda fits w the African content too.

La Verne, however...
Avatar Swag For Life Member Thu. 3/14/19 10:50pm Matt from New Orleans:

I had a friend who went to Scripps in the late 90s. Haven’t spent much time out that way since. The last time I was in that area was to go to the Drive-In with the tiki theme maybe 10 years ago.
  Thu. 3/14/19 10:50pm Dean:

There used to be -- we're talking '80s -- a great Italian coffee bar in Claremont operated by an Italian guy into cycling.

Even La Verne...I like these underdog towns.
Avatar Thu. 3/14/19 10:51pm Kris Holmes:

There is a motorcycle store in Redlands, opposite the record store, which has a basement full of classic bikes, very cool.

Avatar 🎃 Thu. 3/14/19 10:54pm geezerette:

When Fallows grew up there were still little houses from the 1900s in oramge groves. Orange blossom scented air. That's gone now. Still a college town though.
Avatar Thu. 3/14/19 10:54pm Kris Holmes:

Thanks Larry for your pledge
  Thu. 3/14/19 10:54pm Dean:

It's the "nothing/same" that touches me. I remember being in Victo one year for the festival. Early mornings, before the shows commenced, I found solace hanging at the Quebecois mall to grab coffee and read. Identical to familiar suburban sites in Southern California, except in French.
  Thu. 3/14/19 10:56pm JtotheK:

You got the pronunciation just right! Well done!
