This Land is Our Land — Trans, Cis, & More

Driving Across America, Without Apology

So, I made a spreadsheet of the gas and camping stops on our cross-country trip to Boston that I talked about in my last post. We’re driving Betty, a 1973 VW Camper whose fuel gauge doesn’t work. Betty has no on-board computer. She’s an air-cooled post-War-German feat of engineering, built for a time when we all drove 55 to stay alive. There are riding lawn mowers of recent vintage with more horsepower.
