Jeep is America’s only real sports car. – EF

The one crucial item for every road trip I’ve ever taken is the car. I suppose you can bike the country or even take part in long cattle drives out west. Under certain circumstances I could consider those road trips. This post however is a dedication to the various cars I’ve owned.

My dream is for people around the world to look up and to see Canada like a little jewel sitting at the top of the continent. – TD

I love America. There is no where I’d rather live than the U.S.A., but I do like to visit other places! It’s like the microcosm that is my neighborhood. My house is my home. It’s where I’m most comfortable and safe. It’s my favorite place to use the potty. That being said, I still like to visit my neighbors, eat their food, learn their stories, and pee in their swimming pools. I’m probably not a very good neighbor.

Halloween starts earlier and earlier, just like Christmas. – RE

I love the above quote by horror actor Robert Englund. Not only do I 20160916_195956.jpgagree with it, I live it! I am in full-blown Halloween mode. My favorite blogger has started his annual Halloween countdown and I’m right along with him. I’ve amped up my horror watching, visited two different Halloween stores, bought the awesome flask, seen on the right, and am currently agonizing between 3 different costume options. I’ve also started looking around at the haunted house attractions that will soon be opening in the area and have recently braved the Rehoboth Beach haunted ride. So to keep in theme with horror travel I want to talk about two separate trips I’ve made to horror conventions!

If it’s a penny for your thoughts and you put in your two cents worth, then someone, somewhere is making a penny. – SW

Any tourist trap worth its salt should have a penny smasher! The penny is such an underrated coin in this regard. My favorite souvenirs while traveling are flattened pennies and I’ve recently learned I’m not the only one. I had never thought to Google penny rolling machines before but I’m glad I finally have. I’ve found a plethora of information about them and multiple companies that manufacture the machines. I kind of want to own one. Badly. This post is going to be lame and dorky…

A black cat crossing your path signifies that the animal is going somewhere. – GM

While most of my trips focus on the tourist trap theme, I’m always looking for places that offer animal encounters. In order to get me moving though, these encounters have to be more that just feeding goats at some third rate petting zoo. That’s a lie. I’ve traveled over an hour to feed goats, pigs, and llamas at a crappy backyard “animal rescue.” My love of animals and my love of travel have frequently combined for animal encounter adventures. This post will focus on four.

I come from a family where gravy is considered a beverage. -EB

Once upon a time I had a craving for biscuits and gravy. Bob Evans wasn’t going to cut it. I needed the real stuff. A quick Google search of “best biscuits and gravy” turned up the Loveless Cafe in Nashville, TN. And just like that a trip was planned for the weekend. I would leave shortly on an 800 mile trip for breakfast in December of 2010.

Kentucky woman, she shines with her own kind of light. – ND

I guess a good second post would be about my latest adventure. I spent several days in Kentucky with a very short stop in West Virginia. This was a great trip for a traveler looking for the weird. Appalachia is always good for some odd ball sights and people. While the idea of this blog has been in my brain for a few months, I didn’t really think I’d start it. Now that I have. I regret not taking more and better pictures of my latest trip. I promise to change that for the future.
