    I had a 5 hour drive with my dad yesterday.

    It was actually pretty fun because I had a bunch of Gabriel Iglesias clips stored on my phone, so my dad let me play them on the car radio. We were laughing the whole drive!

    Hell On Wheels.

    So y'all wanna hear about my road trips, huh?  I have been on a million family road trips, since my family  can't really afford to use any other method of travel.  Plus my dad has always been a big fan of them, since he can control where we go, how we get there...

    I Think I Should Do It Again...

    Just about half a year after the fall of the Berlin Wall, curiosity got the better of me and I sold my car, bought a van, put a mattress in the back, blinded the windows, packed camping cooking gear and on my way I went. East-Germany and Russia were (and in a way still are...
