The Great American School Bus Conversion: Part 1

One of my favorite movies of all time is Road Trip. It's not exactly the pinnacle of cinematography, and the acting isn't going to win any awards, but it does include a couple of my favorite themes:

1. Ditching school
2. Road tripping

My first experience road tripping was when I graduated from high school. Five friends and I took one of those cool vans ("a REAL van.. this was before all that minivan crap") from Texas to Florida, and then all the way up to Maine. I got off in Massachusetts, but the rest of the crew continued on to Chicago and then back South.

"Hey! How is your day going?"

"Hey, great! (BIG SMILE) ... You?"

"Good, but it's rainy and wet and like a couple of retards we only packed sweaters and we don't have an umbrella either."

"Oh! One of my customers left her umbrella here this morning. Do you want it?"

"Uhh... YES!"
