On It's a Girl, My Lord, in a Flatbed Ford

I have been in Winslow, AZ half a dozen times while playing this song. Lots of cross country road trips to visit family with my cheesy parents. I will call in sick to work and wake up at 3am to be at this festival tomorrow so I can make my parents proud.

Don't you mean How to Throw a CRAWFISH Boil? Shrimp boils are blasphemous.

On How the Internet Changed Solo Travel

@laurel I backpacked through Mexico from Cancun to Mexico City for 18 days with my boyfriend and a freind (another dude). No, it wasn't solo, but it was my first time traveling sans parents and out of the country. I definitely feel confident enough going back solo. Palenque was the only sketchy town (the BEST ruins). I would not go back there alone. Mexico City has sketchy places (a classmate in college was in Mex City the same time we were and she was kidnapped. And she was born and raised in Mexico City. It's like any major town- watch where you go, and don't run around late at night). We almost always stayed in backpacker/youth hostels where there were plenty of people to tag along with for day adventures or going out. Mexico has been my best travel experience- great snorkeling, ruins, AMAZING cheap food, and a ton of like minded travelers.
