Flag vest diplomacy

Arkansas

Arkansas: WalMart headquarters

December 28, 2016

The entire flag vest project started on a whim during a road trip with my brothers. With about ten states left as 2016 came to a close, I tried to convince my brothers to do a daytime roadtrip from St Louis to Bentonville, Arkansas and to Kansas City, Missouri, where we could jump over to Kansas.

I managed to convince just Tedward. He and I set out early in the morning. We managed to run out of gas just a few hours into the trip (a combination of great conversation and seriously irresponsible planning on my part), but thanks to AAA, weren't delayed too much.

WalMart has reshaped America in a lots of ways, some for the better and others for the worse. But there's no doubting its impact on how Americans shop and what main streets look like.
