This week, a Wayback throwback, in case you missed it the first time around. The inaugural Flapjack Jamboree was presented by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce in the spring of 1980. They served up pancakes, sausage and beans to welcome summer visitors (permanent residents had a special invitation, too). Can you name the chamber members in the photo?

How many canoes can one pickup truck hold? A lot. This vintage photo shows an old Algonquin Outfitters pickup stacked with 15 to 16 canoes. We know the year the photo was taken (can you guess when it was?), but not where.
