Gas prices? Hold on tight!

4.26.11-In the past week I drove up to Portland then back to Boston, and then down to Long Island and back to Boston for the holiday weekend. 36 hours later I'm docked up for the evening in Rochester, New York. I've been on the road in a truck I call the Silver Bullet, a 2007 Chevy Suburban. Gas has ranged from $3.73 in Newburyport to $4.37 on the Merritt Parkway. Everyone's going in the hole right now and there's no time to slow down, -so hold on tight. Spring is here though with intense showers, flooding, and budding trees. You need a distraction right now, my book Hundred Day Haul continues to sell and gain momentum. My journey towards mass distribution continues as an Indie Bound writer. I must gain more readers and more interest for this topical adventure. So, tonight I share with you the Millennium Phalcon, a 1999 Chevy S10. She was the highway spacehip from the lengendary Haul, surviving a near death experience in the Ocean State. Here we see her just before the 1990s are about expire in the Badlands of South Dakota. She's posing in front of my Pentax K1000 on a tripod in the distance. Gas was about $1.41 back then.
