Road rules

  • Never eat at a place called Mom’s.
  • Never ride close to a cage that advertises the driver’s name as Sixpack.
  • Never pull into an unlit, isolated interstate rest stop after dark.
  • Never walk into a bar where the half-tons in the parking lot have rifle racks in the rear window-especially if there are rifles hanging off the racks.
  • If the dancer says she needs a ride home, be generous, but watch your back on the way to the door.
  • Watch your back in the parking lot.
  • If you pick up a hitchhiker named Angel on an interstate on-ramp near Deming, beware that she doesn’t talk you into taking her to a non-existent music festival on a back road off of Highway 666.
  • If it feels like it’s time to leave, go with your gut instinct. It’s usually right.
  • When you wake up and find yourself alive and riding on the wrong side of the yellow line, stop and take a break to live a little longer.

And finally,

  • when you wake up and find yourself alive and riding on the wrong side of the yellow line for the second time, stop and take a break. You’ll definitely live longer.
