Conoco Touraide

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | July 1, 2022

The Jaglowski family lived in Hibbing  and wanted to take a car camping trip to Glacier and Yellowstone Parks. Having a membership in the Conoco Travel Club allowed the Jaglowskis to request Conoco’s Travel Bureau to create a “Touraide,” an itinerary that included every piece of information they would need along the way, including location of Conoco gas stations!
This was created and used in 1936.
