Big Country Little Car Tour II: Chicks Dig The Long Haul
It's back — and it's smaller than ever!
…Just kidding. The trip is waaaaay bigger; the car is the same modest size, but will have cruise control this time oh thank sweet achey Jesus.
Big Country Little Car Tour II: Chicks Dig The Long Haul started out as part of the 2011 contest; one contest winner gets a beverage delivered by me, dressed in my tomato outfit, and Miss Lucy (who does not, to my knowledge, have a steamboat) asked for a gin and tonic to come to her in the Land of 10,000 Lakes. Then the Couch Baron's birthday present got folded into the trip (long story). Then I thought, what the hell, I'll visit family in Boulder. Then I disappeared down a RoadsideAmerica.com clickhole and now it's a whole thing, yay!
My tentative itinerary is below; my EZ-Bake Oven with wheels and I hit the road July 25. Watch this space for updates and possible meet-up opps! And please suggest a few fun things to do if you'd like, with the understanding that 1) camping and/or BBQ is not going to happen but 2) minor-league baseball totally must.
