Driving Through the Midwest: Still Boring

Comments (2)

Spending thirteen or more hours on the road with family members means you'll either find nothing funny or everything funny. Although we got off to a rather rough start, we were eventually able to band together in making fun of Indiana. (Sorry, Indiana readers.) I'll have to tell that story when I'm not posting from my phone, but, in the meantime, rest assured that my brother and I laughed for five minutes straight about a street named "Garoffolo Blvd." My dad claimed there was a creature by that name that was part giraffe and part buffalo. We were so amused by this that it took us a good two minutes to figure out that "Sitting in the car hard to stand?" wasn't the stupidest billboard ever. So yeah. Good trip so far.

There's a billboard somewhere in Indiana, advertising that waterpark - Indiana Beach.

Said billboard states: "There's more in Indiana than just corn!"

I beg to differ. I spent entirely too many weekends in collge trekking through the cellular wasteland (you just TRY to get reception out there) of central Indiana, going to horse shows. Nothing but corn.

Big Time Fancy - HAHA! Funny you should mention that! We used to pass that billboard all the time on the trip down to my grandmother's house, and we then spent the ENTIRE trip through The Hellish Land of Corn That Some People Call Indiana pointing at every pond and guffawing, "I bet that's Indiana Beach! TEEHEE!"

And yeah, cell phone reception is a joke out there. Thankfully, my family enjoys mocking Indiana a lot, so we manage to survive driving through it every time. So far . . .
