"Why I chucked my big career and...

took off to the wild blue yonder in a 1975 Airstream Camper"

I found this interesting article in the Philadelphia Weekly about a 25 year old woman, Rachel Furman, who chucked her career and ventured out.

My apologies if this has been mentioned before. I could not find it in a forum search.

I'd say from the first few paragraphs that I read (sorry, got tired of the vulgarity for vulgarity sake) it's more like R-rated - just my 2 cents.
Might be a good story in there . . .

she lost me at the part about the nose job.

hard to believe a paper would publish such a load of bunk web or otherwise... must have really good tires to go 85 all the time!

then again, as bright as the author seems it could have been in kilometers per hour!

you call them ferrets, i call them weasels.

My parent's would have guided me away from that read at 14. (But what they didn't know, in my opinion, didn't hurt them.)

Guess I based it more on what I've seen & heard at the movies... perhaps an R rating is a little more accurate.
