The modern history of fast-food in America began on 7 July 1912 with the opening of a fast food restaurant called the Automat in New York. Automats remained extremely popular throughout the 1920s and 1930s. The company also popularized the notion of “take-out” food, with their slogan “Less work for Mother”. The American company White Castle is generally credited with opening the second fast-food outlet in Wichita, Kansas in 1921, selling hamburgers for five cents apiece. Among its innovations, the company allowed customers to see the food being prepared.
So pack up you book and stamp and grab some fast letterboxes at popular fast food restaurants. This drive thru won't be bad for your cholesterol...I promise!
(Note: KFC is back clucking again!) All boxes have twist on tops, so please be careful when unscrewing them.
From I-65, take the US-231 exit- EXIT 22- toward SCOTTSVILLE / BOWLING GREEN. Head north.
Your first stop is White Castle.
Pull into the parking lot and park in the back. You will see a small wooded area. You want to walk toward the chain link fence on the right edge of the wooded area. Once you are at the fence, walk into the wooded area about 5 paces. White Castle will be located on your left at the base of a bush. Watch out for thorn bushes!
Now get back out on Scottsville Rd. and cross the street to Burger King. Park in back. See the dumpster? Get out and walk behind it. You will see a small cedar tree along the fence. Burger King is hanging in the tree.
You will need to get back out on Scottsville Rd and turn right. You will see Taco Bell and KFC on your right side. Enter KFC's parking lot and park in the back. You will see a picnic bench. Go to it and continue to walk down into the sinkhole. Toward the back edge of the sinkhole, almost straight from the bench is a large split tree. KFC is inside the split of the tree trunk.
Now turn around. See the large rocks? Walk to them. Taco Bell is under the largest one on the backside.
You now want to get back out on Scottsville Rd and turn right. Get in the left lane and turn left when you come to Campbell Ln. It's the first largest intersection. You are headed to Chick-fil-A.
Pull into the parking lot and park in back where the employees park if you can.
Go to the chain fence and walk all the way down to the left end. There are two rows of bushes. Chick-fil-A is in the end bush closest to the fence.
The amount of trash produced by fast food consumers continues to grow and litter our roadsides. If you can, please pick up one piece of trash at each location. One person can make a difference.
