The First in a Series of Road Trip posts, warm up for the Sidewind Across America Tour , this one with Mac and Cindy in Indiana, concerning Clear Vision, Drifts toward Ditches, Perils of Vitamins, Abundance and Bad Seed, Inter-state Rivalry, the Miracle of Going Home.
Cindy: Hey, watch it! The ditch!
Mac: It's just the rumble strip.
Cindy: Ok, but you're driving.
Mac: I'm just trying to fix these sunglasses, Cindy. I sat on them, God-damn it. Kim's Christmas present.
Cindy: It's not even sunny out.
Mac: Take your vitamins! They're in that cup.
Cindy: How can I swallow that many? We drank all the Sierra Mist.
Mac: There's a bottle... right... back... here.
Cindy: Geesh! Watch it! Vitamins aren't worth dying for.
Mac: Ok, ok. Just let me....
Cindy: Look how tall that corn is. Where are we anyway?
Mac: Still Indiana. Take the vitamins with a cookie.
Mac: How could you eat all of them?
Cindy: Delicious. Feels like we're driving all the way out to California!
Mac: This road's a straight shot to Peoria. Except all these shit towns. Can't really open it up.
Cindy: Where's the interstate?
Mac: Look at all this corn.
Cindy: Now that corn there looks too short to me.
Mac: My God! It sure is.
Cindy: Maybe not enough rain.
Mac: Bad seed, I bet.
Cindy: I don't see how they ever harvest all of it. I don't see anyone in the fields.
Mac: Is this Sunday?
Cindy: Maybe they're in church. You want a sip?
Mac: Ok, but I need to get through this shit town first.
Cindy: Nice park. What town is this? This is a nice little town.
Mac: $3.41 per gallon. I think that's the lowest we've seen since Port Jervis.
Cindy: I have some poison ivy on my hand it. It itches.
Mac: 119 miles to Peoria.
Cindy: Welcome to Illinois!
Mac: It's good to be out of that Republican Shit-State.
Cindy: I'm sick of corn.
Mac: Those are soy beans.
Cindy: I don't see any beans.
Mac: Trust me. The beans are in there.
Cindy: I can't wait to get home.
Mac: They can fix the sunglasses in Peoria.

Poor dear deer
Poor little old dog on his side
Poor deer again, so many
Poor bird, poor coyote
Poor beautiful red fox
