Nothing much is happening at Prairie Stop 41. A 1954 Mercury Monterey just passed by Roger without stopping. Roger watches it head south in the distance.
Looking northeast, nothing in the view has changed – – just empty prairie to the horizon.
Looking south, another car approaches. It’s a 1954 Cadillac Fleetwood. Roger leans forward expectantly, but the car continues north. Roger watches it fade in the distance.
Now from the north, a tractor-trailer approaches. It’s a 1949 GMC HF series truck. “Zephyr Van Lines” is painted on the trailer.
The truck passes Roger at full speed, blowing dust around him.
