This is how I would categorise the states purely based on driving through them.
California: We all know it’s shit. Traffic and ugly desert. Terrible, until you enter AZ.
AZ doesn’t deserve a picture
Arizona: You thought California was bad? What’s AZ then, because it really is the shittest to drive through. Full of nothingness. I have solved America’s immigration problem. Just put all immigrants in AZ, no one will notice. Are there any people in AZ at the moment, except Maifield?
New Mexico: NM gives you hope of something better, some cool rock faces, and strange round bushes as far as the eye can see. Reminded me of South Africa in places. I found myself looking for elephants and zebras. Sometimes I scare myself.
Texas: Big step backwards. Just as your hopes for some sort of civilisation were going up you enter Texas, another flat dry wasteland of nothing.
Oklahoma: Now we are talking, red dirt and green trees, it’s beginning to look alive, and if you are a cow, you would fit right in! Lot’s of cows!
Arkansas: Let’s face it, no one knows about Arkansas. I didn’t even know how to spell it. I had no idea what to expect, this is a black hole state, if you are not American it’s impossible for you to even know about it. But guess what. It was awesome! I was driving through and I thought to myself, this looks like I could live here. I wonder if it’s as nice as it looks! Maybe I will manage to get a nice picture without killing myself tomorrow, or maybe not.
