1. A tale of pavement and Southern food

    Between August 31 and September 7, 2012, I drove from Irvine, CA to Washington, DC. Taking a longish Southern route, I passed through Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, and Kentucky, among other states.

    This is a blog of photos and writings from that drive.

    The trip turned out to be greatly (and pleasantly) an odyssey of barbecue and fried chicken. For quick reference:

    Along the way there are also great views, road trip humor, white sand, big rocks, and more! Oh, and songs. Can’t have a road trip without songs.

    So join me on my ride! Hope you enjoy it—I know that I did.
