I’m out on the road as I write this…not for anything even remotely BangShifty, mind you. I’m actually sitting in a room full of college students that are swarming around looking for a way to earn credits and escape the country at the same time. The noise level is unbelievable and the entire commons area smells like the chicken tikka masala that the college provided for lunch. The things I do for free food. But as these college students swarm around, I can’t help but think of places in the world I want to go. I knocked Scotland and Ireland off of the list last year, which was awesome, and the next place I’d like to exercise my passport on is Australia. Beautiful sights, flora and fauna not seen anywhere else in the world, excellent cuisine, rugged terrain, warm climate…yes, there are reasons to go that do not involve blowers and tormented tires, but if I’m going to the land of kangaroos and koalas, you better believe that I will find my way to a burnout contest of some sort. It only has to be one day…ok, no, it doesn’t need to be one day. I could spend days or weeks even listening to the sounds of sincerely angry motors doing what they are supposed to be doing.
