I love this film; every time I watch it it brings tears to my eyes with nostalgia. It's memories of crazy trips like these that help me make it through the long Toronto winters and dullness of daily work at my job...

this is so reminiscent for me of when my mom, my sister, + i drove my brother out to berkeley from ohio to start grad school. that was in 1986, but i guess most of the highways + motels looked the same as they did here. that was a fun trip too, + it was nice being reminded of it.

p.s. random bon jovi trivia! the picture on the cover of 'slippery when wet' is just a plastic trash bag sprayed with water. no lie!

You're from Colorado? Oh, I just checked your profile. So you are. Neat! Featured in the video is my bro and his gf, who live in CO (Vail) and it's scary being in the backseat when he's driving on one of those roads you're talking about. Namely that red rock one, where the path was so narrow I was clenching the one side of my butt everytime we'd go around a corner because, what, I thought somehow my slight shift in weight could keep us from plunging into the ravine? I dunno. He's a bit of a madman on the road, my big brother.

that looks like so much fun! makes me miss my homeland CO. You can't beat those one lane road drives where no one even exists for miles and miles.

Yes, we drove for about eight hours each day, not including stops, cooked our tofu sausages and veggie dogs on a Coleman grill we'd set on the side of the road or the back of the car, it was great. And exhausting. jones had never really been to the US before, besides a five-day trip to NYC we took the year before, and maybe some border crossing as a kid or something, I can't remember, so it was really cool for her. I loved it, too.

Road trips are the best! Sounds like you travelled far....on a steel horse (car) you ride!

I thought of using "Blaze", but I decided on the band-on-tour cheese instead. Jon Bon Jovi makes me feel like a cowboy. Yeehaw.

The long road home

Cheesy buddy road movie. Last summer I had to go to a conference in San Francisco so my lovah and I decided to make a road trip out of it. The plan was we'd rent a car and camp our way from Toronto to SF and back. It was a little ill-planned, and sooner or later we packed in the tent in favour of free breakfast motels, but it was an awesome trip nonetheless.
