Road Trip Alternatives

Road Trip Alternatives
by Molly Fergus I’ll admit it, I’m lucky. I travel the country for one year, all-expenses paid, and I get to call it a job. But landing a gig as a hotdogger certainly isn’t the only way to travel the U.S. on a shoestring. Whether you want to hitch a ride in some other crazy car or befriend...

Lost Girls of the Week: Molly Fergus and Selena Armendarez

Lost Girls of the Week: Molly Fergus and Selena Armendarez
How could we NOT make the gals who drive the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile our Lost Girls of the Week?? Since we’re rooted in NYC writing the book, we can’t get out and actually travel as much as we used to. So, we’re living vicariously through these girls, and have asked them to submit...

California Dreaming

California Dreaming
I am in love. You know the feeling, that I’m-so-excited-to-be-alive/ butterflies-in-my-stomach/ nothing-can-get-me-down sensation. However, this high is not for a person, but a place. California’s Central Coast is better than being a single woman landing in Rome if you enjoy breath-taking...

Strawberry Fields

Strawberry Fields
I’ve always wanted to be a California girl. So I decided to go there for a three-week visit to see my sister who has landed on the Central Coast as a traveling nurse. It wasn’t intended to be a vacation-I figured the sunny weather and ocean air would offer inspiration for writing the book....

Hunter Valley: A Hedonist’s Playground

Hunter Valley: A Hedonist’s Playground
There’s a lot more to Oz than the sunburned outback and endless beaches. When my fellow Lost Girls and I heard about the rolling vineyards, gourmet restaurants and relaxing spas that were to be found in Hunter Valley, we refilled the oil in our camper van (we learned our lesson!) and hit the road....

Lost Boy de Jour: Justin "Bugsy" Sailor
Several weeks ago, The Lost Girls got a shout-out email from one of our favorite blog crushes…Justin “Bugsy” Sailor, the dude who’s traveling all over the US to “stay with a different family in each state, documenting hometown life through photography, interviews, and journal...

Head for the Hills!: Part Two
Marshmallows + cheap wine + your best girlfriends= recipe for the perfect camping trip. After constructing a kick ass campfire (if we do say so ourselves), we settled into our foldout chairs with the mission of toasting the perfect marshmallow and catching up-since we don’t see each other enough...

Head for the Hills!: Part One
Since the Lost Girls scored an awesome camper World Nomads camper van, we decided to take it-where else?-camping. Our premiere girlfriends getaway in the Blue Monster (as we affectionately named our new set of wheels) takes place in Barrington Tops National Park. I chose our destination in my usual last-minute...
