    Sometimes driving fast just helps to wash away

    the pain and distract the mind for a little bit.... Too fast for my own good

    Therapy By The Mile

    For me, driving fast on a challenging road clears the mind of all it's extra baggage and lets me think clearly on a situation. No matter how sad, angry or worried I am, all the excess garbage is cleared away so I can just take in everything as it really is. It's almostĀ Zen. My...

    Headed to the coast for an appointment

    for work. I love these little quiet moments driving with just the blue sky and my thoughts to keep me company. Sometimes I just want to toss my hiking boots and backpack in the car and just drive forevermore.

    I drive a stick shift

    because it's more fun for me than an automatic. It also helps my hyperactive mind concentrate more on the road than the random things that would occupy me otherwise.

    I always have. My mother always said she really

    lost me when I got my license as I was barely home ever again. I just drove. Anywhere and everywhere. I'm not sure why. Maybe it was the feeling of independence or maybe I was searching for something. Obviously never found it as I always ended up going home. Anyway it struck me...

    I love it, one of the few places I have of

    absolute privacy and I can just listen to music and think all I want. So much solace in my car.

    Great news! Well my instructor says I'm doing a

    great job driving. I have 7 more lessons left until I take my road test. I'm so super excited!! :) This weekend I drove all the way to my grandparents house a few towns away and I did it all on my own. I'm very proud of myself because I used to be terrified of driving. Now I...

    First feelings of getting older were from

    driving. Taking long trips alone was fun blaring music in the car. I can't wait for my next road trip this week!

    QUESTION! Automatic

    or manual ?? I have been learning in manual for a while. But I had a 2 month break from learning because of a holiday. Although I'm ok in manual, I keep stalling and then I get frustrated and it becomes a pattern. I tried driving a automatic and I loved it! So bloody easy. It...

    I'm an only child. that means I thrive off of a

    bit of alone time every now and then. that means country roads, great music on the radio, and the windows wound down with the heater cranked up. The roads around my hometown in South England are some of the best the world has to offer. hilly enough to be interesting to look at...

    Driver Or Not

    I think I like sitting shotgun more than being the one doing the speeding. I dunno where else this can apply to my life. But I like staring out of the window and daze off. I like having the horizon stretched out in front of me whether it displays the miracle of a sunrise, the...

    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...

    There's nothing more relaxing to me

    than driving down the highway nice and fast with the windows down and the music playing. Something about it is just so amazing, I don't really know how to explain it. Driving at night is especially awesome.

    The only thing in this world

    that can calm me down, and get my mind off my worries is driving. I will drive until I feel better, or until I run out of gas. Just driving in itself is relaxing to me, especially when the music is full blast.

    There was a sound, there was a feeling.

    There was a scent followed by a memory. There was a night with crisp air chilled just enough to see your breath at night. I could feel the rumble of the inline 6 engine under my hand as I shifted into third gear exiting the apex of the turn. It was a lonely road on a clear...
