What would RTH do?

That is the question.

If I were in a highschool yearbook, they would vote me most likely to die of a lynch mob. That does not prevent me from opening my mouth and serving a warm hearty cup of STFU to people who deserve it. My dark scathing humor will leave no matter of existence untouched. My innocence will touch your soul.

Welcome to a warped world turned inside out and upside down. All sorts of discretion advised.

An American Odyssey - Part One

My bags are packed, or so I think. Perhaps, maybe, I think I have enough clothes. I'll probably remember somethings right in the morning. I'm a good traveler, but I definitely suck at packing. I actually kind of hate lugging around bags and stuff. Thats the beauty of road trips though. You simply throw a bag together of stuff you think you need. If you forget anything, there are stores and places along the way to find what you want. Best of all your car never charges you for bags or places restrictions. You can stop, eat, stretch all you want.

Our first American road trip was to the east coast. We drove through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pensylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, New York into Canada and then back home through Michigan. It was a blast. A couple summers ago I ventured south to New Orleans, Louisiana through Iowa, Missouri, Mississippi following along the Mississippi river. That was an incredible trip with incredible Herculean driving stories. I survived the south in a Toyota Corolla with the HRC sticker sticking on the bumper with pride. America is actually an incredible country really.

This time around I'm following down south. But instead of Louisiana, we will be meandering through the Ozarks into Texas. Then while coming back I'll be traveling through some new states for the very first time Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska. It will be long hours, it will be lots of driving, it will be jam packed, it will be exhausting, it will be fun though.

Most importantly the trip will be Gleetastic as well as Gagatastic. I just finished burning ten discs of pure Gleekdom sprinkled in with some Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Ke$ha and some others here and there. And ain't technology grand too. Our previous trips were using google maps, this time around we will have GPS. I'm planning to exploit the maximum out of my android too. Lets see if I can work it without breaking it.

I've got my laptop snuggled in my backpack. If I have time and connection, I'll be posting updates. If not Part two will be in a week. Now I got to run, shower and sleep. Its a long day ahead tomorrow. Heartland America, here we come.
