About April Flowers

April Flowers is a wandering gypsy, with a deep-seated conviction that every road she has not yet traveled is an adventure waiting to happen. Mentally and emotionally unable to stay in one place very long, April and her bright yellow Xterra can be found anywhere between Texas and South Dakota, following the wind. When she isn't hiking, kayaking, or flipping a coin to decide which way to turn on the next highway, she can be found writing everything from awesome redOrbit.com articles to a truly terrible novel and some stinky poetry.

Posted by in Lifestyle

Unless, of course, you live in Vancouver, Canada. Mega iLL has a special, extra, ingredient for their pizza—if you are over 18 and have a prescription for medical marijuana, that is.
