Week of PHST

I'm sitting in a Honda Pilot with two of the finest gentlemen to ever grace this earth, and this could in fact be one of the greatest road trips that I will have the pleasure of enjoying throughout my entire career.

For full effect download "Somethin' Bout a Truck" by Kip Moore and play at maximum volume throughout the duration of this post. The reason being is because that song has the closest voice style to the redneck accents that these two fellers have picked up since we dun entered BFE.

On a side note, did you know that the gestational period for a cow is 12 months? Random Fact of the day.

Yes kids, I'm on the road again. And because of this, I will now resurrect the "Week of" blogposts that have had so much popularity in the past. This month's theme will be the Week of PHST" For copyright infringement purposes I will not reveal what the letters PHST stand for. Go ahead, make up your own words for it. Pretty Hot Swedish Toaster? Maybe.

It's rather picturesque coasting on Hwy 24 at 8,000 feet looking over the valley below, with the smell of desert rain drifting through, while James Taylor comes over the airwaves and serenades us with "Fire and Rain". Beautiful isn't it? That of course is followed by Keith Tronic ripping a big one and the Rhinestone Cowboy explaining the pinch and roll. Yep, that's how we ride.

Wait, was that a Subway that we just passed? I didn't know that modern fast food had made it out to these parts just yet. From the looks of the log cabin diners that have littered the road for the past three hours, I was assuming that we would need to hunt down our meals from here on out.

It's been a heck of a ride since we dun R-U-N-N-O-F-T from civilization. And I think it's only going to get better from here on out. Between counting cattle guards, mistaking goats for sheep, and listening to Jack Hawk and the Honeybees on the only station in Eastern Utah that plays hits from 1928, this will be a great trip.

Now please roll down the window Keith.

What do you think?
