For those just checking in, I’m on a road trip. I left from San Francisco to Los Angeles and stayed a night in Downtown at my friend Alina’s. She and I took a Greyhound into Vegas. The plan was to hitchhike from Vegas to Reno and then take Amtrak to San Francisco, but we’ve been told that might not be a good idea. Not because of lunatics on the road, but a more natural born killer: desert heat. The highway north is number 95 and goes through ghost towns and desert. Temperatures are in the 100’s and the nights are cold. The road winds along for over four hundred miles and neither of us have a backpack or a tent. We did bring a guitar. If anyone reading this has any ideas, please help. We may be trapped in Vegas at the Main Street Station with no way out.


  1. Down economy or no, money is always flowing in Vegas. Pimp out your friend for a night and you’ll have enough money for both of you to bus to Reno.

    Auto theft is also an option.

    Last, and most sensibly, rent a car.

  2. I’ll come get you guys. I’m unemployed again, so I’ve got all the time in the world.

  3. Alina was demanding I enter an amether strip contest. We checked car rental but being its one way they charge an extra 150 bucks for a “drop charge”. I think it might be up to Ebony to come get us from the Flying J truck stop out by Highway 15…. We’ve been sitting in the truckers lounge asking for rides and it doesn’t look good.

  5. Glad you made it out ok, although I’m a little disappointed at not having a reasonable excuse to leave Hell-A. Talk soon and congrats!
