A just-thought-of capstone for a trip south of the border - going to Tequila in Jalisco state and drinking tequila.

I've already partaken of Peking Duck in Beijing (Peking), and Springfield Cashew Chicken in Springfield, Missouri (where it was invented by an adventurous Chinese chef, or so they claim). But in the same vein, I'd have to go to Buffalo, New York for Buffalo hot wings, or Philadelphia for a Philly cheesesteak sandwich, or Chicago for a true Chicago hot dog.In any case, something for future years.
stay away from Bumfuck, Arkansas.
Dude. Believe it or not, I was raised in a town less than a hundred miles from Stupidville, Tennessee. I've always thought it might be fun to lead a normal existence in Peculiar, Missouri, too.

I'm beginning to see that this could be a lot more fun.........

What shall we call this 'hobby pursuit'?

Aimless Wandering?
Pointless Road Tripping?

Whatever. I'm in.

I don't live too far from Intercourse, Pennsylvania. Never been there, though it is a 15 minute drive from Blue Ball, PA. Go figure.

But you know very little about core drilling? I still think they should manufacture tunnel boring machines there.
