"They've all gone to look for America..."

Things are going to be a bit quiet around here for the next couple weeks. I might not be able to post here at WoW or even read your blogs, much less comment.

I'm going on a cross-country road trip! Heading right into the teeth of Jade Helm 15.

Wisdaughter is starting grad school at USC in the Fall, and we're moving her out to the left coast next week.

Rest assured, however, after all is settled (assuming we survive the Federal gub'mint's invasion of the sovereign nation of Tejas), there will be pictures!

Our route takes us from ATL to the Big Easy (yum!) to Houston to San Antonio (Tex-Mex, yo) to Carlsbad, NM (caverns!), to Roswell (aliens! better yet, alien kitsch) to Albuquerque (Breaking Bad roof pizza toss!) to Sonoma to the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas to LA. Lots of interesting stuff to see I should think.

For entertainment, I have the ~45 hour unabridged CD set of William H. Gass reading his novel The Tunnel.

If you're on the twittering machine, I'll probably post a few of the more insistent shots at @140xLangame (with some snark) when I get the chance. Pop over.

And, needless to say, there's likely to be some serious Drivin' 'n' Cryin'.

I guess there won't be a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas portion of the trip, but the picture opportunities out west are tremendous.

I did the F & L thing years ago there (& elsewhere). This may turn out to be an imagination exercise, trying to see things from the POV of the main character of the new novel I'm working on.

I want to run down to Carlsbad and meet you all. Is it too late?
