    windows down and just drive...wherever the roads take you cross bridges and past the parked cars on the side of the road where folks stopped for a quick dip, through tunnels of trees, little churches with family cemetaries...it's beautiful and peaceful and I'm glad I live where I...

    The first such experience of mine happened

    when I was 18 or 19 years old in the late 90's. My father back then owned a '95 Ford Mustang GT (it has a 5 litres, 302 cid engine). It was a "gran turismo" as us Europeans call those sporty cars which are best for "just cruisin'", you know. Of course it was fast and powerful...

    Ive been driving from 10/11 years old.

    Speed is in my blood and I love pushing every car I drive almost daily especially on bends. I love bends and seeing how much grip cars have to give. Sports cars should be able to handle daily punishment. thats my belief. 1 of the very few reasons I still smile. My favourite...

    Every Road Was A Dirt Road

    Back in the day it was... I lived in a small town. The summer time is when I began to drive. Saturday's were trash day. It meant a trip to the local dump. It was, more importantly, my day to drive. The dusty roads and pine trees seemed to look different when I was driving. Maybe...

    I live out in the country with lots of pastures,

    farm animals, and green rolling hills. Love taking leisurely drives with the windows down and music playing, taking in the views and the smell of fresh cut grass along the way. Fall is my favorite time of year to take a drive through the TN mountains. The changing color of...

    I can just imagine it,

    Me and my dream man in his truck driving down old country songs listening to some Hank Williams jr, my feet propped up on the dash and a full tank of gas. Now if only I could find that dream man haha.

    you pick spontaneously.

    Today was delicious and you were yum, guiding the auto up the winding, back-hill road in pace with the sinking sun. At last, with the tension of timing mounting to unbearable heights, we burst from the tangled forest just as the sun flashed his finish, then slid away to his...

    I grew up in the country.

    ..lived on a dirt road. On Saturdays my Mom would take my sister and I "on safari" she called it...an adventure. She'd take us in the car down an unknown country road just to see where it took us. Great memories .. a great Mom.

    Country roads after rain are my favourite,

    the scent of wet leaves and grass combined with the freshly cleared air is magical, put on some country or bluegrass with my sweetheart next to me and suddenly the destination doesn't seem as important as the journey itself.

    In the fall. It is lots of colorful leaves in

    the highway on the country roads. I like to speed through them. My most favorite one is on a road called Browser Road. It is a curve that I just love to ride through the leaves on and glance the mirror lol. It's fun.

    I drive all day and get bored sometime.  I love to go down a country road I have never been down before.  Every once and a while I do get a little scared when I can not find a place to turn around.

    Headed Nowhere In Parparticular.

    I love to venture out with a full tank of gas just driving thru the country exploring the open roads.  There's so much to see, smell, and enjoy out in the country that I never get tired of it.  I live way out in the country, so even a trip to town can be an adventure...
