WARNING: IF YOU ARE NOT EASILY OFFENDED, PLEASE READ ON, OTHERWISE YOU PROBABLY SHOULDN'T READ WHAT'S WRITTEN ON THE PICK-UP TRUCK!!!
By chance I encountered this oddity when leaving the parking lot of small town park in Cody, WY. I did a quick double-take, thinking I was seeing things but I wasn't, someone or perhaps many people had written on the truck with black magic marker. Upon further investigation, I determined the truck belonged to Kevin. Kevin and his buddies Chris and Marc, all from Olympia, WA, were passing through on their way to Key West, FL.
The idea was hatched by Chris two weeks ago, and in that time, they managed to acquire enough no-holds-barred prose, artwork and whatever else you'd like to call it to fill all surfaces. But there was still room to squeeze in so much more according to Chris. Chris went on to explain their plan for the pick-up. They would continue to collect additional writings as the three traveled to Florida. Once they arrived, they would get the truck clear-coated to preserve the written word. One day he hopes to put the truck on public display at a permanent site in Key West. He also wants to do the same thing but on a larger scale, with a tractor trailer.
They then asked me if I would sign the truck and I said "sure, why not". Comparatively, I penned a far tamer tagline than most. I just wrote "Be adventurous, the world is waiting - www.jeffsadventure.com".
