Tweet Scroll for #OnTheRoad

Here is our own "Tweet Scroll" of chronological updates of #OnTheRoad quotes.  Hopefully, this "Tweet Scroll" will capture some of the spirit of the original "On The Road" scroll, in mad little bits of happy insanity.  Because the phrase has been made so popular for many reasons over the years (including the Willie Nelson tune), the #OnTheRoad hashtag can be quite crowded and even these tweets seem to convey some of the fluidity of the writing -- so here they are, uninterupted. 

Let's grow the following for this project - please, share with the links below...
