Hello from the land of boxes!
I'm about to move across the country, so there will be a brief hiatus from new stories here. But in the meantime, please enjoy some travel-themed reruns.
The Shambulance is a vehicle with an identity crisis (it might travel by land, sea, or space, and is potentially horse-drawn). It's also a series on this blog examining dubious health fads. Below, you'll find its complete voyages.
It has been, I think you'll agree, a twisted journey.
