    "When I first joined Flickr, I was looking for folks with similar photographic interests.....the old road and all it's colorful and quirky trappings. I was amazed when I visited Vintage Roadside's photostream. The scope and quality of his images are tremendous and I look forward to see what he comes up with next!"

    "If you like Vintage Roadside ............. well like the name implies you've found the mother lode........... Just a truly amazing collection of great roadside signs and attractions can be found right here from all over America, this type of work takes a lot of time to find, stop and take a quality photo of and you won't be disappointed with the wonderful body of work VR has put together on his stream here at flicker"

    "Jeff and Kelly are two of my favorite Flickr people. They do an outstanding job of documenting what is rapidly disappearing from the American landscape. I'm constantly checking their photostream to see what they've discovered next. Keep up the excellent work.

    And say Hi to Stinky for me."

    "I had to write this to express my gratitude to these few photographers who have inspired me so much. These words may seem overblown, I don't know, when one has had the scales removed from their eyes, is there such a thing as too much gratitude?

    I call them the "Usual Suspects" since some sort of old movie reference seems in line with the Gestalt of what these few have produced. What they do, what they have done that is important to today and to history. Simple recorders of events and things perhaps, but then so were those who left us the mystery of the petroglyphs. But in these fews efforts something of us and our past are preserved. That's important.

    So to Roadsidepictures, who got the ball rolling, Allen, Thanks for making me see with new eyes. To Vintage Roadside, Jeff, you helped me to see and understand why its important. To loungelistner, Gary, thanks, you helped me do it with a new sense of joy. And to SKY✡VU, Jim, you are just an inspiration by simply being. Amazing what this one man has accomplished.

    These few, these four led to others who have their own lessons to teach to those who will listen, to those who will "see": Thanks to HappyShooter, Fotoedge, Army.Arch, Julia, Alan of Marion, Dave van Hulsteyn, Dennis Dixon, Joey Harrison. Appreciating this thing called urban or Roadside America is just a big jigsaw puzzle. But I'm having way more fun putting it together."

    "Wow! I can be the first testimonial for this Master of Sign Collecting! I go to your site everyday and look with envy upon your great collections of vintage material. One day these things will all vanish but your library will keep them alive forever. I am only a few hours north in Seattle and hope to meet you one day. Maybe we can go on a shoot!"
