What do you mean you’ve always hated Frybo?
Towards the end of July 2013, I packed up my belongings in a rental car and spent seven days driving from Texas to New York City. This is a four part series.
Part III : The Backroads of Eastern Tennessee and Virginia
I ended changing my plans quite a bit after accommodating for time on the Appalachian Trail. Still, on my route north I did my best to drive through as many farm highways and natural parks as possible; I’d done my time on the interstate all the way east through Texas, Arkansas, and Tennessee. These whimsical routes proved rewarding, as I was able to see the gorgeous farmlands in Tennessee and learn about its barn typologies. A few of these images were taken near Limestone, Tennessee, after I visited the birthplace of Davy Crockett. In Texas, he is quite overdramatized and the stuff of legends and myth, when in reality his story was rather average. I was curious to see how his homeland represented him. The answer is: pretty straightforward. They addressed him as a human being with quite the normal life, who ended up moving to Texas. It was refreshing in a way. What was not refreshing was his home (mostly recreated due to all but a few logs being swept away by flood) being 500 feet from a public swimming pool. But so goes the parks who get funding completely cut by their states.
I fell in love with the picturesque farmland, and continued to be in awe as I drove into Virginia. After getting lost on unlabeled highways, I found unexpected views into valleys and eventually discovered my way to the correct direction. After enjoying Charlottesville, I backtracked a bit into Shenandoah National Forest and am absolutely glad I did. There is a reason it is called Skyline Drive. I imagined Americans driving their electric Fords along the ridge over half a century before me, looking at the same trees. It reminded me what an important part of American heritage our parks are. Let’s protect these great treasures!
My favourite ‘rails! Haven’t drawn these two in a while, so this was just going to be an indulgent little squiggle before I got attached.
Equius does pushups, and Nepeta does sit ups so she can push his glasses back on to his face before they slip off.
Maybe my real ship here isn’t Eq x Nep but Nep x Eq’s Glasses…

a year ago this was the page that always made Roman smile a gigantic smile, we never knew what it was about this page but it was his very favorite page in the book and as soon as he saw it he would lean back to look up at me with the biggest “can you even believe this??” smile so now obviously it will own my heart forever
SIGNAL BOOST. Ella is another form of emergency contraception/the morning-after pill. It’s more effective than Plan B and can be taken up to FIVE DAYS after your mishap, rather than three days. Please spread this around; with all of the anti-choice legislation flying about and how difficult it can be for some people to get Plan B even OTC (like minors, people living in small towns, etc.), this might be the only way a lot of people can get their hands on the morning-after pill.
