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.

What's the deal with all the cardboard boxes?

Throughout New Mexico, Lotte & I have noticed that whenever you or I would put a sign on a lamppost or telephone pole (a yard sale, a lost cat, the turnoff for a special event), locals will generally use a caardboard box filled with rocks. Weatherbeaten boxes with faded signs affixed to them stand at intersections in cities and towns throughout this area. Anyone have any idea what the reasons for this convention are?
