So we kicked off the road trip in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Landy and I were coming off the back of a four day golf and beer weekend and were feeling appropriately under the weather after a few 5am nights out.
Summers, our 3rd man for the road trip, met us at the Myrtle Beach airport on Sunday afternoon. He told us his driving licence had been cancelled, he'd lost his wallet 2 days earlier so he had no money, his cell phone was not working and he's left his laptop in the cab on the way to the airport to catch the plane down to Myrtle...
Since Summers had no money and couldn't drive, Landy and I designated him as "The Car Bitch" - he had to take care of all accommodation bookings and pump gas at every gas station. Not even an hour out of Myrtle he also confirmed his title of "King Belcher", burping about every 5 mins from Myrtle to LA.
We rented the biggest SUV available, a nice big white Toyota Sequoia. The car rental attendant went to great lengths to say that this was the only one she had and since we were driving it to LA she'd never see it again and this was bad for some reason. After she repeated that it was the only one she had a few more times I told her I didn't like white and did they have any red ones.... After one steely gaze from her we took off straight down to Charleston, North Carolina.
