It *could* just be me but it almost feels like we're closing in on the end of the strip in a way. Maybe it's just the fact that both the twins are going to be settled down and that Russ is leaving that makes this feel something like that. Of course I am almost *certainly* wrong, I'd imagine if we were nearing the end you would tell us (or of course you could always keep it hushed to surprise everyone :D) The road trip in particular feels like it would have the potential to be a closing arc!

It certainly would be a good one. I'm not quite done yet though!

I kind of got this feeling that Transmission is ending. I mean everything is changing fast.

Russell got married, the twins lost the garage, Reggie was working for a career criminal for a brief while, Linda and Russ had a child, Jason finally overcame his demons and moved on, now Russell's taking his family back to England.

I mean this probably isn't your intention, Frey but it does give off the "final chapter" vibes.

Yes it does...

Lead in to the next story arc?
FreyFox 18th Jun 2021, 9:59 AM
Not the next, but later ^^. They need more time to plan ahead ^^

"...cross-continental road trip across North America..."

Russell wants to send Russell off with a Route 66- type cross-country trek. What could go wrong?

Atlanta is a year and a half now, so Linda should be able to take care of her on her own. If something serious happens in LA, Linda can contact Russell on his cell phone.

Don't forget to pick up Paul when you're in Roswell.
FreyFox 18th Jun 2021, 10:00 AM
Oh yes lol

Wow, this is a lot to reminisce. So, it could be that we'd see something resounding for the Harveys after this...
BUT, I do hope that you could squish in Trevor too- he deserves some good family time and seeing how big the country is!

He's already had a big North American tour with his band so they'll be due for another one I reckon!

Ah, this must be that massive, game-changing, many-months-spanning story arc I predicted five strips ago... ^^

Squirrel version of a “Cannonball Run”?

Only if Sasha and Charley tag along.

I also thought about Jack Jr, but he had his Jeep repossessed a while back.
FreyFox 22nd Jun 2021, 10:42 AM
It was a pick up and it was a very *long* while back. He has since acquired a jeep as seen in "Randall 's Ransom"

Jack Jr did use his new Jeep during "Randall's Ransom". His pickup was repossessed around that time he convinced Reggie to drive him to his camping trip.

That could be nice for them

Zombie Korma's first American tour was a mixed bag. Hopefully, its second tour will be much better now that the band has become more popular in the US.
