Time Magazine begins road trip in Laredo

Time Magazine’ Swampland (Political Insight) begins “Joe’s Road Trip” by coming down to Laredo to start the trek north to Minneapolis, Minnesota.

From the post:

Road Trip 2011 begins today. Well, we had so much fun last time, why not? And there’s still a lot to learn, and enjoy, about this country. So I’m in San Antonio, and in a few hours I’ll pick up our first traveling companion and head down to the Mexican border at Laredo. Some basic facts about this year’s trip:

Route: From south to north, Laredo to Minneapolis, with longer stops in Austin, Texas–for the Austin City Limits music festival (the enjoyment part)–and Iowa, for the presidential politics.

Vehicle: A charcoal gray Jeep Liberty,* unnamed as yet…but I may call it: The Briquette.

The story of the beginning of the journey was posted yesterday and I wrote them to wish them luck. Alas, I received no response. I do know they visited with Border Patrol but … if you spot Joe Klein and Katy Steinmetz, Lynsey Addario and their traveling guest in a Jeep Liberty, make sure you give them a warm Laredo welcome :).
