shellin' beans

Folks, if you haven't already heard it through the grapevine, me and Oilchanges are hitting the road this September.  We're packing up the station wagon, old-school family vacation style, and burning rubber down twenty-one hundred miles of American asphalt to finally plop down upon our ultimate destination: Stanley and Rose Mary Crawford's farm in Dixon, New Mexico, elevation 6000 feet.  That's right(!), me and Oilchanges are heading out west to farm.  Yeah, farm.  I turned down a good teaching contract (one with benefits) in favor of a road trip to New Mexico, to volunteer my labor, side-by-side, for peanuts, in a field with some dude named Miguel de Guanajuato.  (Stan told me to brush up on my Spansih.)  This trip means a lot to me, a lot to my personal growth and direction, and it would mean even more to me if you could help me and Oilchanges out.  Yeah, I'm hitting you up for gas $$$!  I'll trade you top notch road trip and farm content for some gasoline.  I don't know what sorts of characters I'll meet along the way (I'm gonna sleep in my car), but I do know I am devoted to turning my path out west into the best Oilchanges entertainment I can.  Gas isn't cheap these days, but I have a paypal button!  (See top right hand corner of this page).  OK, shelling beans!  Put your headphones on and enjoy.

You're going to have to hone your bean-shelling skills before September or Miguel is going to be laughing his ass off, kiddo! We have faith, though. You can do it!

Spillin beans made me jealous. BC
