The road to nowhere
Dagny Taggart and Hank Rearden decide to go on a car journey together. They travel across the country, to old towns and villages, admiring the scenery and each other.
After few weeks on this road trip, Dagny expresses her desire to look for an old factory of “Twentieth Century Motor Company” She had been combing the whole country with Ted Nielson, to create diesel engines for her trains. This company was once at the pinnacle in the field of engines and Dagny wondered there might be some machines still left in its factory which could be salvaged.
After a lot of inquiries, they reached the industrial town neighboring the company’s factory. What they saw, made them cringe with horror. The town had few houses, devoid of electricity, lacking public transport, no trains and far from a civilised word. A lonely single lane road connected this town to the highway which could have been easily missed.
No one answered in a straightforward manner to their queries. Nevertheless, they were able to discover the unpaved road which led to the factory. This path was covered with wild bushes and thorns. They parked the car and finished the remainder journey by foot to what remained of the factory, which once was an industrial gem.
It is a toned down version of pancakes made from flour. This one is rich in proteins and fibers. The oaty flavor of these pancakes goes well with Jam/jelly, chocolate sauce, maple syrup, butter, peanut butter, etc. We totally loved these and finished within few minutes, wanting for more. We accompanied these pancakes with butter and mixed fruit jam, and hot coffee..
