A Mountain Christmas

This week our Classic One Tank Trip heads back in time 22 years to Christmas of 1994 when we headed for Oglebay Park in West Virginia to take a look at one of the Midwest’s most popular light displays. I’m Happy to report more than 2 decades later its bigger and better than it was in 1994. Its still a great holiday One Tank Trip.

And speaking of Christmas, books make a great present. My new book the “Best Of One Tank Trips” is available in bookstores, online and you can order a copy on this page.

Candles For Christmas


Candles make great holiday gifts and the A. I. Root Company in Medina, Ohio, has been making some of the best candles found for nearly a century. It all started because a priest at a local church felt the candles he was buying elsewhere were not made of real beeswax. You can see the story again here on this week’s Classic One Tank Trip. And remember, another great Christmas gift is books. My new book, “The Best of One Tank Trips” is a great stocking=stuffer for those members of the family who like to explore Ohio and nearby states. You can buy it at local bookstores or order it on this site.
