3/17  Barstow, CA to Weed, CA – 635 mi To see the entire road trip visit Yes it is really named Weed, CA. For those who don’t know, this used to be the illegal capital of marijuana prior to legalization. Its remote local made it difficult to find pot farms back in the day. […]

3/14  OKC to Albuquerque  – 543 miles. To see the entire road trip visit I’ve spent the better part of a year planning and organizing for this road trip. It was planned to facilitate TANSTAAFL Press’ breakout year. It is hard to see it as anything but an abysmal failure, something that is gnawing […]

3/9  Evanston, WY to Monument, CO  – 486  miles To see the entire road trip visit I’m sure anyone who is really paying attention (maybe two of you), they are asking themselves, what does Amarillo have to do with your next stop in Dallas for AllCon? Not a thing other than it is on […]

3/5   Layton, UT 0 miles To see the entire road trip visit If I was a poet, I think it would have been entitled from bad to verse. So I bedded down at a truck stop only to find that I couldn’t sleep. I’d wake up every couple of dozen seconds hacking a lung […]
