US trip

The US Travel Guide

Between finishing university in November 2000, and starting work in January 2001, myself and a friend took a 5 1/2 week trip across the southern United States. Along the way, for reasons unknown, we recorded the details of all the quirky things we saw, the television shows watched and the junk food eaten. Important facts like meal sizes, ketchup supplies, living off vending machines, dodgy cheap hotels, sleeping on buses, the hypnotic secrets of Time Warner broadcasting, the locations of far too many McDonalds, how Jane Fonda created the universe, and far too many details of Greyhound bus stations.

Now some 5 years later, just as I've forgotten most of what happened, the truths of the Little Brown Book can finally be revealed for what they are... a load of nonsense.

Detail still to come...
