Things we have almost killed on our roadtrip thus far (* indicates which have been successfully smucked – the rest were just close calls):
- Generic birds eating grasshoppers who are sunning on the road*
- Grasshoppers – any many grasshoppers*
- Mosquitoes (extra icky)*
- Prairie Chickens
- Raccoons aplenty
- Traffic cones
Happily, most of the wildlife escaped our careening vehicle. I feel bad about the ‘possum (though it was his fault) but not about the bugs or the bird (way too dumb for their own good). And they won’t have to make I Know What You Did Last Summer 7 because of us. Whew.
Brilliant road trip update, isn’t this? I’ll do better once we’ve finally arrived in DC and I have a little more time and comfort to sit down and type. Not to mention pictures. I’ve gotten some good ones.
And no, “peacock” is not a typo.
