DaveO Posted March 7, 2014 Share Posted March 7, 2014 I was recently reintroduced to this famous or infamous paragraph from Hunter Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. For some it would be appropriate for the "Intrepid Traveler" For others it would be far far off base. In any case its a terrific paragraph ...and its about traveling....... "We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half full of cocaine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... and also a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can." Its a good thing he included the case of Bud, to help take the edge off. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
