I purchased the Tecopa Hot Springs postcard referenced in my previous post a few weeks back. The postcard arrived in the mail today, and I got a pleasant surprise -- the card is postmarked December 1966, and has an entertaining story:
FS-369 -- Tecopa Hot Springs, California The picturesque village of Tecopa located near the world famous health giving hot springs that attract people from all over the nation.

Dear Lu & Bill,
Harold was sick in Bakersfield. I drove from Mojave to Barstow. Tehachapi had heavy snow. Wind blew cold and hard the first night. The accomodations [sic] here are a joke. Baths are good. Weather here is nice now. Harold has stopped 4 times for him to burp up. Will leave here Fri. Couldn't get [???] on way here.
