As you may remember David telling you last week, my son Otto and I are off to help David move from cold, snowy, rust-filled Michigan to the balmy, rust-free vistas of Southern California, where I can introduce David to the joys of It’s Its and being surrounded by beautiful people who use articles before they refer to highway numbers and so so many great cars, just around everywhere. That means we probably won’t be writing all that much this week, as we’ll be busy trying not to spin off into snow. But we’ll still have plenty of great content, and we’ll post updates! Updates fueled by my all-natural home-brewed trucker’s crank!
This is going to be a hell of a trip, and I hope I get to see a lot of readers out on the road. More importantly, this is enough of a reason for me to post this iconic road-trip-to-Los-Angeles song from The Muppet Movie:
You know what? Fuck the rules, I’m gonna stick the Steve Martin waiter cameo in here, too:
Also Muppet-car-related is this, your reminder that Gonzo the Great drove a Citroën Mehari, as you can see up top there, inverted on the Studebaker.
I’m excited for the trip! I just hope we don’t have to spend too much time driving through bat country.
