Redneck Burgundy and Zoot Sims – On the Road Again
Few, my friends, are the things more enjoyable than piling into the car and driving along back roads. Do you know what? Back roadedness isn’t even necessary – have you looked around while you drive through The Grapevine? Absolutely beautiful the 5 is, and it’s one of the most traveled hwys in California. Stay with me through the end of this two post picture extravaganza and I’ll wrap up with a choreographed trip south through The Grapevine. Your heroes (me and sweetness) in our chariot (a a dusty 2008 Audi) roaring through the pass to the tunes of Kurt Weill leider sung by Ute Lemper and “Murder Squaredance on the Spiral Jetty,” a collaboration btwn Stephanie Taylor and Vanessa Place. “Hah!” he said as he whipped those three hundred horses, “Stick with me baby – I’ve got things to show you that you’ve never even imagined!”
We begin rather more timidly, on Hwy 46 crossing the middle of the state leaving the oil and almond fields of the Central Valley for cattle country. I play quietly in the passenger seat.
Okay, red vine licorice time for all good children. Then I gotta go for a while, be back tonight with updates on the weekend and next week.
Enjoy you day. Eat your fruits and vegetables.
