Why a road trip? Two reasons: One, it’s kind of the American thing to do, to take to the road, following the sunset; and Two, it’s unAmerican the way people are treated by the “security” staff at US airports, so this is my personal thumb in the eye of government officials who want to assume I’m a criminal and insist on treating me that way.
I’m planning to use this journal to let people who are interested (all 5 of you! 🙂 know where I am and what I’m doing, updating it every evening when I stop for the night, AOL willing and the phones work right. There may be pictures as well, occasionally. We’ll have to see how it works out.
