Gary always wanted to be a race car driver as a kid. Right now he’s pushing 70 on I-76; feet navigating around a tiny white cat who thinks the area between the brake and the accelerator pedals is the perfect place to hide. He’s behind the wheel of a brand-new diesel Ford F350 four-wheel drive. It’s a truck that’ll never win Le Mans, but this road trip? To quote Steve McQueen, “Anything that happens before or after… is just waiting.”
Hence what the hell, an international driver’s license. We’ve got just about every other piece of paper imaginable, at least this one’s got some street cred.
