traveling, not by choice

I'm headed to Kentucky in a few days for work. I wouldn't be dreading the trip so much except for the fact that the area I'll be in is pretty out in the middle of nowhere. Other colleagues who have been in the area have made some comments that don't sound too promising. For example, on one occasion, while trying to get a deli sandwich, one guy was told, "Provolone? We don't gots no fancy cheese. This is America. We gots American cheese."

Looking forward to (exaggeration) trying to gather some posts about what to do when you're travelling to less-than-ideal places.
