In early 2020 I traveled across the country with  the course of three weeks.  My A to Z posts this year will have the "8154" theme, which will also be the title of my forthcoming new book that will document the epic road trip.  Each entry will highlight a few stories with photos based on the alphabet and not the order of the trip.  I hope you will enjoy this bouncy ride across the back roads of America.  Please enjoy the P Stories. (all photography by David "Sumoflam" Kravetz) Today's post is extra long.  Lots of P Stories out there.  Some fun variety below.  Enjoy the Read! Enjoy the Ride!

Its a very exciting time when I can visualize a future trip on the back roads of America. I tackle all of my trips with Vim and Vigor.  I feel validated after even the most vexing of trips. As I wind down the month of April and the 2019 blogging challenge, I can see the finish line and can tast victory.  Maybe I will celebrate with Voodoo Doughnuts!! I hope you enjoy some of the V Signs I discovered in my 2018 travels.  Enjoy the Read. Enjoy the Ride.
