When we last saw and heard from our team of vagrants, they had just arrived at the Rock n Roll hall of fame in Cleveland, OH. They were still with their newfound love, Barbara enjoying the ride. After a quick skate around the place and a firm escorting off the property for not having tickets and skateboarding outside, they were on their way again headed west.
As they approached the border between Ohio and Indiana they had a tire blowout. Being the nice guys they are, and since Barbara had actually done more for them than anyone could ask, they changed it up for her. This was the end of their quick affair with Barbara, she went her way to get her life in order and they started skating down the road.
Shortly after crossing the Indiana state line and placing the Rome and Darkside Stickers on the Indiana state sign, they scored their next ride. A random guy in a pickup truck rolled up and said he was headed just outside Chicago. They hopped in the back of the pick-up, laid down, and hoped they would end up somewhere good.
After what seemed to be forever in the back of a windy, bumpy ride they were woken up at the end of the line in the middle of nowhere—a little more than 200 miles down the road in the back of a pick-up. The man told them they were right outside of Morris, Illinois. This might have been the case but in reality they were on a two-lane road surrounded by corn fields and it was about 2 a.m. They walked across the field and into a patch of trees and set up camp for the night.
The morning was spent walking and walking trying to find out where they really were and how to get to town or back to a place where they can get a real ride.
A brief recap on their trip:
1. They have driven a car
2. They have been to one famous landmark
3. They’ve tagged three state signs
4. They’ve spent a total of 22 dollars between them in 48 hours
5. They have had three different rides
