Or that one time I drove to Mexico from Lake Tahoe and ate πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„
  1. β€’
    So I was about 19....this should tell you where this story is going.
  2. β€’
    My friend Bob (a girl whose name is really Ashley but she goes by Bob...and no she is not Trans so I'm correct with my pronoun)
  3. β€’
    My friend Bob was in love with this band that was playing at the Hard Rock in San Diego.
  4. β€’
    I needed to go to Orange County where my family lives which is on the way to San Diego.
    Can't remember why.
  5. β€’
    We decided on a whim to take the road trip.
    Mind you we only had a day and half because I had to work.
  6. β€’
    So we started or journey in the Volvo wagon down the 395 with a brown bag of a wide mouthed wide can Fosters (Australian πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί for beer) aka road soda.
  7. β€’
    We arrived in OC where we stopped for about an hour...I'm sure my parents were thrilled I brought home my pink haired friend Bob barely visited and said I was headed to San Diego.
  8. β€’
    We then arrived in San Diego only to find the show had SOLD OUT!!!! Did the Internet not exist at this time?? I can't remember.
  9. β€’
    So, what do 2 intelligent 19 and 21 year old girls decide to do? Go to Mexico, naturally!
  10. β€’
    The night of course began in Tijuana...we spoke ENOUGH Spanish at the time so we were TOTALLY SAFE.
  11. β€’
    Encounter 1: parking garage local trying to get us to go to a private beach...no thanks.
  12. β€’
    Encounter 2: Marines, whistles, tequila and some guy asking me if the Kat you did my tattoo was Kat von D (see What The Tattoo On My Lower Neck/Shoulders Is And The Meaning Behind It)
  13. β€’
    Encounter 3: A basement and invite to a Donkey show
  14. β€’
    Encounter 4: Mexican Led Zeppelin cover band
  15. β€’
    Encounter 5: Eat πŸ„πŸ„πŸ„ while watching cover band
  16. β€’
    Encounter 6: We are lost in Mexico I repeat we are lost in Mexico
  17. β€’
    Encounter 7: End up in a weird shipping yard area find truck driver
  18. β€’
    Encounter 8: Me: Donde esta cinco del Norte?? Possible murderer (who turned out to be kind and honest because I'm a good judge of character) Sigue Sigue
  19. β€’
    Encounter 9: Follow truck to the border...Bob: It looks like a transformer!!!
  20. β€’
    Encounter 10: Fall asleep in driver's seat waiting to cross border
  21. β€’
    Encounter 11: Wake up almost get arrested...Bob jumps out of car to pee and buy a carton of cigs right before we actually get to cross...almost leave Bob in Mexico.
  22. β€’
    Encounter 12: Make it back to America πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
  23. β€’
    We made It safe and sound back to my parents around 6 Am we have now been up for 24 hours....time for a nap and head back to Tahoe
  24. β€’
    Wake up and can't move back either from driving or fungus....take some muscle relaxers and get in the car.
  25. β€’
    I was a really brilliant 19 year old!
