Roadtrip Archives

In the summer of 2003, Charlotte and I decided to take a trip across the country by rental car (why a rental? Don't ask--it's complicated, dull, and annoying.), stopping at various friends along the way, seeing the sights, and culminating in our annual visit to the Burningman festival in Nevada. This is the diary we kept along the way.

Town of a Million Zillion Lawnmowers.

Lewis Carroll did a piece about an island where the inhabitants earn a living by doing each iother's laundry. Similarly, the principal industry of Louisvill appears to be lawnmowing. Both of Lotte's sisters in town are married to landscapers, and, driving around town, trailers filled with lawn maintenace equipment seem as ubiquitous as snow plows in Boston in February.

I would have written this note sooner, but I was too stuffed with Lynne's biscuits 'n' sausage gravy to work the keyboard. We'll try to get pics of Lynne's up tonight if we can.

Yr. obed. svt,
