Words to Travel By:

“Bizarre travel plans are dancing lessons from God.” – Kurt Vonnegut

"We can't be lost.  We're making such good time." – a friend

"I've been absolutely terrified every moment of my life - and I've never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do."  – Georgia O'Keeffe [Because bridges are my kryptonite.]

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime.” - Mark Twain

Burn with Satan

On Route 66 near Avila, Missouri, some industrious soul wants to save the rest of us from ruin. In the Burma Shave tradition, the messages are delivered on a succession of signs. There are no clever rhymes, just an abundance of old-fashioned fear-of-God inspiring gospel verses.

"Burn with Satan" does sound like a promising name for a goth aerobics class.
