Travel Bolg #1

The scene: Hampton Inn, Kansas City. The travel begins after a month of Trixi cleaning her house (and leaving nothing but 2 full cat boxes behind) and getting things crazily in order on both ends. We started drinking at 6 am, having a beer at every single rest stop -- shit, I'm KIDDING, people, sheesh. Actually we're just enjoying a well-deserved moment's peace in our delightful SMOKING ROOM (you can smoke here. You can smoke here. You can smoke here.) listening to the INSANELY POUNDING rain outside. Yes, we soaked in the hot tub. Yes, we enjoyed sandwiches at Bob Evans -- sadly, the restaurant, not the home of the Paramount mogul.

Note: The Twin Bing is the best candy bar ever. If you've driven through Iowa and missed it, GO BACK AND HAVE ONE.

Other note: Kum and Go realizes the humor behind their name.

How exciting and take pics too. Lots of 'em. We've never done the road trip out West. Isn't there a giant ball of string somewhere along the way? And giant rabbits with antlers?

Yay!

Bob Evans is a real guy?

What the heck is a Twin Bing?

Don't the litter pans always get left behind?

Have Fuuuuuuuuuun.

How can you be telling us about your road trip without noting the vehicle? Even if it's not bitchin' please tell us for mood.

Oh YEAH, Twin Bings are indeed a tasty treat. Dare I say the best thing to come out of Sioux City?

You can get them occasionally, (rarely?, once in a while?!?) in the Twin Cities too. OK, maybe its just when a truck flips over on the freeway (the packages tend to be scuffed- go figure).

Get one now- go!

I can't believe you were in Kansas City and the authorities did not notify me. They must be slacking.
The Kum and Go has been a constant source of amusement for me, and the only way I have found it acceptable to say the word Kum in front of my mother other than as an instruction . . . wait . . .ok, really, there is no good way to indicate the appropriate usage of the word "come" . . . "come here" . . ."come with me" . . .no matter how you look at it, it's dirrrty.
