      Don't forget to follow FPS via Twitter and please feel free to come back any time soon, especially this Wednesday when I'll post something new from Miami. Supposed posting days are Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays!



  1. We drove all around the states and it was one of my favourite trips ever! must be so much fun

  2. Hey, I've been there. Did you touch the water?


  3. Ah, such great indicators of a fun, interesting trip so far! Though, I agree- far too few dogs petted ;) Love the first photo of the post! Enjoy the rest of your trip :)



  4. #14 .. I laughed so hard (sorry! car trouble sucks).

  5. Damn, fuck Hertz. Remind me to NEVER rent a car from them. Are they gonna pay for any of that?! You're SO close to Cincinnati! It hurts my heart. You can come play with Todd :D

  6. YOU went to GRACELAND - Too jealous right now >:( You guys ure are doing the American roadtrip in style (no thanks to Hertz, grrr)
    Have fun. I can't wait to see your NYC pictures!!

    ♥ Paula Shoe Fiend.

  7. Still jealous of you. I think I might not want to be your friend before because of how jealous I am. Glad you are having a great time and taking so many photoososogosirhgiorsjgiosjigojsroigjj!!

    Be safe!

  8. Well, how come you partied so little with a stay in VEGAS ??? Jeez impossible !
    You're pictures are soooo great, I love the light ! Can't wait until you reach New York !

  9. AH. oh, uh...American trip is continiue...NICe

  10. You're having an amazing journey! You've driven more in 20 days than I do in a year. Good luck with parking when you get to NYC - the multiple complicated signs are confusing, parking spaces are rare and the prices on some of the parking garages are pretty high - but it's better than having your car towed. Congratulations on your progress, on all the photos (I'm enjoying seeing them immensely) and on not drinking too much. It's better to remember it. Rent-a-car companies can be a pain - at least other than the flat tires it hasn't broken down. That's not your rent-a-car just above the mustard and ketchup is it? Don't forget the sunscreen/sunblock/moisturizer in Miami :) Loving your pics.


  11. It's more impressive see it in numbers!!
    Couch surfing people are friendly? I've always thought about doing it but I don`t trust a lot in people...

    You must increase the number of bars of fast food, beers and shots!! =) And diminish the bad issues with the car please!! You are saving the state for economic crisis with the parking bills!! XD

    Doesn't your boyfriend send to you photos of Mr Fartz every night???
