As with any road trip, well, ours at least, there’re things, places and sights that don’t fit anywhere else. Hence the post of Random Awesome Stuff.
When The Co-Defendants were little we tried (read: Mom tried) the license plate game on all our road trips. This game went over about as well as a turd in a punch bowl. Not so with this trip! Forty states and two Canadian provinces. Not too shabby, y’all.
There was Pig ‘n Whistle just outside Millington, TN that served the best BBQ ever to cross my lips. Easy on the sauce with just the right amount of smokiness. Potato salad with a little something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. Yes, even the brisket was better than Texas’. Sorry, home state.
There was this bad-assed lady in Mobile Bay. Hello, USS Alabama!
There were ‘Quick, take the picture before they realize they’re touching!’ moments.
Not once did the truck pull over for family counseling sessions.
No one died.
I only took one Xanax.
And I tried scotch. Did I mention that? Nasty shit. Skip it and go for the fruity drink with an umbrella.
