So, if (and it is a BIG IF right now) we were to take to the open road in an RV or maybe one of those cute Airstream trailers, where might that road lead? Visit friends and family – check, find rivers and stop for fly fishing – hubby big check, me “Ok, I’ll give you a few”, all those must see monuments, parks, historic sites that every tourist wannabe has on their list – sure, we’ll do those too. But, I recently stumbled on a few places that really sparked my interest. Now these towns might be worth barreling down the highway in an oversize toaster on wheels! Kinda makes me want to say “Road Trip!”
Knowing us, we’d have to start with the names of dubious character ~ Intercourse, PA, Assawoman, VA, Blue Ball, OH, French Lick, IN (ooh la la!) or Buttzville, NJ and then ease on down the road to the tiny town of Slaughterville, Oklahoma which, so the story goes, was once the subject of a PETA protest. PETA asked the town (I’m not making this up, I got it right from the Travel Channel) to change its name to Veggieville with the promise of donating $20,000 in veggie burgers to the school district if they did. From there we could cruise into such hot spots as Hell, MI, or Fertile, NM. And, when hunger strikes, we’ll head on over to Pie, WV. If we’re feeling adventurous, we’ll surely make a stop at Surprise, NY and round out our road trip at Deadman Crossing, OH, or maybe Jerkwater, PA, or Idiotville, OR. Idiotville? How can we live in Oregon and not have heard of Idiotville? That sounds like a weekend getaway on it’s own.
Happy trails and roll up the damn window, the breeze is messing up my hair!
