The name’s Flyrod. American car culture is my thing. If it rolls, roars, or rumbles I’m into it. Statistics and facts aren’t my gig. My mission is to track down and capture the infamous rides that make up pop culture, and to tell their stories.
WOODY TO WOODSTOCK
It was back in the summer of sixty-nineWhen the winds of change were showing a sign
Here is the lesson that experience would teachA couple of surfers, who were bums on the beach
As Brian Wilson sang about those “Good Vibrations”Youth in search of change was causing gyrations
Those Beach Party movies were a thing of the pastWe were getting-our-groove-on from a whole new cast
Frankie, Connie, and Troy weren’t cool anymoreIt was the sound of Jimi Hendrix that made the crowd roar
We packed-up the Woody as our “Endless Summer” ceasedFor a seven day journey on a road that headed east
We “Let the Sun Shine In” as we crossed the dessert sandsFor a festival of music from thirty rockin’ bands
We cruised through Colorado on a “Rocky Mountain High”Our minds were feeling free like an eagle in the sky
We were “One Toke Over the Line” as we crossed the MississippiTwo stoned surfers and a hitchhiking hippy
We were “Eight Miles High” just outside of DaytonWhen a broken fan belt kept us all waitin’
Crosby, Stills, and Nash on our eight-track deckWe were singing right along and we almost had a wreck
By the time we got to Woodstock we had made the transformationNo more waves to ride, we’ve joined the love generation
We were “Grazin’ in the Grass” on Yasgur’s farmRunning around naked and dancing arm-in-arm
That’s when I learned that everything changes with timeSo listen my friends, and heed the words of this rhyme
This lesson from the passed still holds true todayIt is written in the words Bob Dylan did say
“Your old road is rapidly agin’For the times they are a-changin”

Four holes… Roadmaster? Now are we talking the real Woodstock where I would hang on occasion…. or “Woodstock”? Another exceptional piece from the mind and talent of the flyrod!!!
We’re talking full blown festival, naked hippies on a farm, my friend. Don’t take the brown acid and other words of wisdom from Wavey Gravey. I’ve always said, "that John Schneider sure knows his hole count. Thanks buddy.
