They say that it's not the destination that counts, but the journey, proving that "they" definitely do not run American Airlines. But "they" might run Rock-it Ships, whose fleet of fuel-efficient, "Frankenstein-like" Mercedes Sprinters were intended to help up-and-coming bands hit the road without an expensive tour bus, but can be rented by anyone who wants to road trip with luxe amenities and enough room to comfortably sleep seven (or uncomfortably if the person who crashes hardest is the driver). And no, they aren't cheap, but split it between your friends and it'll cost less than a week's worth of hotel rooms, so read on about the "why" and the "how":
The why: After you finish mooning passersby, you can hit the galley fridge for a frosty beverage, chill on one of two plush sofas, and alternately peruse the in-motion sat TV and blast tunes through the stereo, which is sure to piss everyone off trying to sleep in one of the curtained-off bunks. Why were you mooning people at 2a anyway?
The how: Submit your prospective dates & route, then let 'em know whether you'd like to pick it up at one of their FL offices or, for a reasonable sum, have them drive it directly to you anywhere in the US or Canada, hence the delivery man's maxim "It's not the destination that counts, but whether or not I have to fly American back home".
