Buffalo, NY—As the dog days of August wane local author P.A.Kane is again going on sabbatical from Buffalo Mud. Loyal Mud readers will recall the site went dark last August for several months without explanation. The shutdown fueled much speculation about the author and publisher.
Some said Kane had become an ascetic monk. Others conjectured he was obsessed with Dolly Parton collectibles. Many said he was blocked and couldn’t turn over a story about a guy ruining a dinner party with a giant shit anymore. Or he no longer had the wherewithal to investigate the shocking amount of Monte Carlos in an Alden trailer park. And finally some said he lost perspective and didn’t have the insight to profile a renaissance man like Jesse Nolan and his never ending fashion statements.
The 1.5 millionth ranked Amazon author and his wife of nearly
one-million years, three decades, Donna are heading out on the road to see and explore the U.S.A in their fully equipped Ram Promaster van. This first van life expedition will find them in such places as the South Dakota Badlands, the Grand Tetons in Wyoming and the Colorado Rockies, plus many others. This fall, instead of reporting on the failed congressional bid of Hitler enthusiast Carl Palidino—guess Western New York it isn’t Carl Country—Kane will posting daily updates from the road highlighting the beauty, grandeur and the indomitable spirit of the American people—hopefully without getting his liberal ass shot.
“It’s a dream come true,” Kane said. “Ever since I read “On The Road” as a young man I’ve wanted to see America from a speeding vehicle. I hope this will be the first of many trips throughout the U.S., Canada and beyond. I should note, in “On The Road,” Kerouac never went to Canada even though he was of French-Canadian heritage. He went all over the U.S. and Mexico, but not Canada. Kerouac probably didn’t go to the great white north for the same reason I’m a little hesitant—bears. I know, Canadiens are gentle, peace loving people, but they have bears—like everywhere. There’s more fucking bears in Canada than jelly doughnuts and it’s a little unnerving for a slow footed white man such as myself.”
Please join bear repellent equipped author P.A. Kane as he goes mobile across America. You can link to his new travel blog here or on the side panel of this site. And look for the return of Buffalo Mud in the near future. Thank you for the continued support.
Also, don’t forget to make the toast and tea.
