Ever since my best buddy Michael in addition to I met in school, both of us bonded over rock n roll in addition to our love for writers like Jack Kerouac in addition to Hunter Sâ€¦ Thompson.
The several books that both are most famous for—On The Road in addition to Fear in addition to Loathing in Las Vegas—embody a youthful energy in addition to drive for exploration in addition to road travel.
I had never seen the western US in addition to had only gone as far west as the MS River banks in MO. Michael had been as far west as Kansas in addition to was desperate to see the Pacific Northwest. All of us plotted out a dream road trip, however both of us didn’t realize that it would become a reality in 4 short years. One of the stops that both of us planned ahead of time was Albuquerque, NM. Not only did I want to try cannabis from a NM dispensary, however Michael has family in Albuquerque. They live in Old Town Albuquerque near the Native American shops in addition to monuments. I was in awe driving down Mountain road on our way to the Albuquerque Museum in addition to the NM Museum of Natural History in addition to Science. Aside from the rich Native American culture that has existed in Albuquerque for generations before American settlers occupied the area, it is also the location of multiple major archaeological in addition to paleontological digs. The dinosaur bones at the Museum of Natural History in addition to Science were awe inspiring, especially with some cannabis in our systems! Before both of us left Albuquerque, both of us took the time to explore West Mesa after smoking a bowl of weed on the banks of the Rio Grande river. If I take another cross country road trip, I’ll be sure to stop in Albuquerque again.
