Thanksgiving travel, need help fast!

Things change so fast in today's world! When we booked our travel a few weeks ago it was for domestic travel but now the same trip is considered international! (see map link below).

http://paulm.com/inchoate/2004/11/canadian_escape.html

We will be traveling from the area formerly known as the USA: Blue Sector/North East Zone to what is now Jesusland: Deep Red Cornfield Zone.

In brief, we need to know:

- Are passports or visas required? Would a baptismal certificate or gun permit be enough?

- Will we encounter any customs that may seem unfamiliar to us?

- What should we wear?

- What is the capital of Jesusland?

- Is it true they are considering changing the country's name to Cracker Nation?

- Any good gay bars you know of?

Thanks for your help!

I would be too - if I weren;t sitting here weeping in my beer. Sorry to be so dreary - but . . .

I think France or Canada would welcome you with open arms.

Some of your questions will be answered by this more-detailed version of your map:

With apologies to Canada -- who really shouldn't be expected to change THEIR name -- what do you think of nicknaming it the U.S. of Eh?

You don't need a visa to enter the Redneck zone, but you cannot leave it without showing divorce papers from at least 2 marriages. If you are gay, of course, the divorce papers requirement is dropped and you can leave at any time.

After looking at this again, I'm sorry that I laughed about it publicly. I suppose what I found funny is that I recently moved from a very blue state to a very red state and these stereotypes are so inaccurate! There are a variety of people everywhere you go, and what makes our country so great is that we have the freedom to express our differences and lives our lives the way we choose. I understand that in difficult times these differences cause deep divisions, but I hope that we can soon see these differences as a cause to celebrate, rather that promote an "us vs. them" mentality.

If we can't laugh about our differences then we will never begin to talk about them openly, compromise, and grow together instead of apart. Humor is one of the best ways to cut through barriers.

Are you both a troublemaker and a troll?

What should we wear?

If you wear jeans, be sure they are pressed with a crease.
