we left Wisconsin at 11pm at night. it was morning by the time we reached Arkansas. the drive through Illinois to get there was at night.

So that makes the saying awkward if the driver paid for the gas.......Gas, azz or grass, nobody rides for free!

So fascinating! A real-life road trip movie!

I often think of the daring things I might have done if I were male instead of female.

I know the psychos of the world make it dangerous for guys too , but the odds seem to be stacked against the girls.

So glad you did this, and safely. Good for you!

i honestly figured if he was some scary serial killer guy who wanted to murder me instead he would have to shoot me or stab me in the neck or head very fast and kill me very fast because i would've been fighting back the whole entire time and most likely would have won (i'm 6 foot 5 and 140lbs)

i don't fear death at all but i was very glad that didn't happen either because all i wanted really was to go on a roadtrip to Arkansas, which is exactly what i got.

well i was professionally diagnosed with autism, adhd, borderline personality disorder, bipolar disorder, and a few of my psychiatrists believed i may have parinoid schizophrenia, but that’s the only thing i wasn’t diagnosed with.

so maybe, depending on your definition of crazy.

kinda reminds me of this scene from the 1996 movie, the craft honestly: https://youtu.be/JGljE1-ERos

when people tell me “watch out for those wierdos” and i respond with, “I am the wierdo...”

i have no shame though

One of my favorite oddball road trip movies is Stranger Than Paradise by Jim Jarmusch.

A bunch of oddballs make their way down to Florida...

The film won several awards and is considered a breakthrough in indie cinema.

Based on your posts, I think you’d like it!
