The Great American Wasteland, Chapter 1 Pt. 2
Taxis, Trains, Buses, and Plains
Well well welcome, this is another Cucumber Days edition of Down the Pipes, a weekly semi-private weblog delivered to your inbox. Because it’s the waning days of summer here in the Catskills, I am currently on a hike with my brother and some of his friends, not blogging. In that spirit, I figured I’d bust out the second part of my totally unfinished, totally unpublished, barely edited manuscript that I’ve been chipping away at on and off since the summer of 2015 (some of the references will seem dated or incompatible with historical understanding, think of this series as a snapshot in time more than a thoughtful analysis of the past).
If you’re new here, a subscription is unfortunately required, however a “free” subscription today will net you a lifetime of comped access, so you really have nothing to lose by signing up now (paid tiers will get you the same kind of treatment as a free comped tier, though with added gratitude from me). In short: No purchase necessary, void where prohibited.
There’s only 2 more weeks of summertime throwaway posts, so enjoy them while they last and share it if you like it. Welcome on Down!
