(Pause the writing) Begin the road trip (But don’t really pause the writing)
Admittedly, when I think cross-country road trip, I think:
I’m talking about the car; get your mind out of the gutter. But no worries, because there is great appeal in a road trip going something like this:
The question needs asking: “Why on earth do you need four sets of headlights, sir?” But I don’t dare trifle with anyone who drives a car laden in impenetrable (probably) wooden armor. It is also important to note the colored stripe on the tires matches the color of the vehicle. Pure class.
Admission Number One:
- Yes, I typed “road trip” into Google Images for the aforementioned pictures.
Nuts and bolts: Flying to Seattle, getting in a friend’s car and driving East. East is capitalized in this particular phrasing because I want to create an aura of majesty and great unknown. Hopefully an aura of majesty and great unknown that we will unabashedly conquer.
Admission Number Two:
- This trip is only possible because fate (lower-case ‘f’ because I’m not entirely sure it even remotely exists, and capitalization would insinuate importance) made it all but impossible not to with $140 airfare.
I toyed with the idea of starting a blog just for the road trip, but after a few ramblings about current events and the news, this feels like home. So I’ll still touch on newsy things that pique my interest and share words I think are cool. A mass of pictures and video from an epic road trip will accompany it, that’s all. Pretty neat, I’d say.
Admission Number Three:
- I enjoy making these admissions into nothingness, so that will continue from time to time as well.
I’m going to pack now.
