Cross Country Road Trip- USA

Travel time: August 2007  |  by Christina E.

The cross country road trip that has failed to materialize for 3 years but finally, fulfilled in the year of 2007. Two (crazy) girls set out one early Tuesday morning and in their journey's wake, meet transvestites, cute boys, get bitten by mosquitoes, get pierced with rusty nails and squirted in the eye with 'porn sausage', hang with bums and riffraffs at Union Station....


On August 7, 2007 at approximately 1:30am, Jen and I left in our clunker of a rental and set the GPS navigation for The Grand Canyons in Arizona. With our cooler, duffel bags and blankets piled into the backseat, we were ready for our adventurous adventure across the United States!
