On the Road, Again

Wait, what? I thought you said you were done with travel for the year, Scalzi! I am, indeed, done with travel for public purposes — I have no more events scheduled for 2019. But now that The Last Emperox is finished, and I have a free moment or two, I’ve decided to take a week and visit friends, some of whom I haven’t seen in a long time. I’m renting a car and traveling the great American southland. It should be fun. Unless the car breaks down and I am consumed by bears. But that seems… unlikely.
In any event, the travel begins today, so whilst I travel updating here may be sporadic. I’ll try to get some nice shots of hotel parking lots, however.
Now writing the fanfic “Bears Discover Scalzi” in my head.
Hoping that the pen is mightier than the claw (or perhaps the word processor in this case)…
“Consumed by Bears” would be a great band name…or book title. Just sayin’.
We have a BBQ Burrito with your name on it here in Alabama!
For the best chance of being consumed by bears, I recommend packing your car with rotting apples, bird seed, and bee brood comb. Bears will eat honey, but it is not their go-to meal choice.
Oh, wait, that’s not the advice you were looking for.
John, have you never seen a movie?
As soon as someone says “Unless I get mauled by a tiger” the next lie is ALWAYS “It’s right behind me, isn’t it?”
At least the book got turned in…
gha, that should have been “line” not “lie” (which is a whole other thing)
Traveling the southland, you probably don’t have to worry too much about bears.
Panthers, on the other hand…
Willy Taco has the best burritos in Greenville, SC. Try the burrito bowl with shrimp.
For Scalzi to go out as a bear-ito would be very on-brand though.
Those clouds are beautiful across the sky.
