I had to look up this "South of the Border" place since I'd never heard of it.

So awesome.
Right now at this current moment in my life, there's nothing I want more than to travel the highways throughout the States.
Don't get me wrong Canada is GORGEOUS, but the drives are sooo godamn boring.

I want to take my new car and drive to Florida next year. Never been driving through that way. I am excited.
