Okay, this must be an elaborate Matt and Trey YouTube hoax, or a wilderness weekend trip Tumblr from congressman Aaron Schock, or, wait!, could it be? Yes! It's just one small super-hathetic, lose-your-whole-day nugget from Craig Romney's super-exciting cross-country trip, with his best buddies, including one apparently called "rondog j. baughleberry III" Yay! Buzzfeed's McKay Coppins lowered the boom.

Here they are swimming on their way to San Francisco to "go check out all the hippies!" (Totally not making that quote or lisp up. Seriously.) Then there are those moments when Craig is just totally high on caffeine-free diet ginger ale:

Craig's personal video entry into the wet t-shirt contest is here. His visit to a Mormon "martyr" Parley Parker Pratt's grave-site is here. (Pratt, a first generation Mormon, and a great-great-great grandfather of Craig, was murdered by one of the former husbands of one of his twelve wives. Hence martyrdom for the faith, believed in by some.)

Anyway, enjoy! And try to get past the pathos of the resonance of the blog's title. It sounds just too close to the Romney campaign for comfort:

Yes, it's called "Road Ends In Water."
