    Road Trips

    One of my favorite things to do are road trips. I love to drive by myself or with friends singing along to all sorts of music, bringing up old memories, making new inside jokes. Random road trips are the best. I have had a few nights where friends and I would randomly drive to...

    I got my license back in January,

    and I drive a 2002 Mazda tribute. I love my car so much, I go on long drives by myself listening to music and just thinking. It has a v6 engine so it's even cooler, and when I'm on the backroads or out in the country, I can speed without getting in trouble. Being with friends...

    I finally got to go on a long drive.

    My hair blowing in the wind, with the music cranked up. It was great! At least this time I didn't almost fly away like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz. Lol

    I love long drives!!!

    If I had my own car, I would drive anywhere I want to go until the gas tank is empty, but not completely empty. When I drive, I feel free. Driving makes me feel good and takes away the stress in my life.

    I like road trips. My husband does not.

    Sometimes I wish that I had someone who would like to just get into the car and go on an adventure but I am alone in that. Long road trips give you the chance to discover new places and see the world....well at least the part you can drive too...

    The Thinking Road

    I can think back and remember the long drives I took...oblivious to gas prices, I just wanted to think and driving down the same road that went on forever and ever was the best way to do that. I could drive for hours and not worry about getting lost. I could play song after song...

    I like to look at the scenery

    when driving around. I love seeing new things even if it's taking a route I've never been on before.

    I like doing most of my driving at night.

    The reason being for the most part I have the road to myself and if I want to drive at my own pace I can do so without somebody running me off the road. I usually travel down back roads in the county I live in and the neighboring counties too. I like to be near railroad tracks...

    A Long Drive

    there is nothing more relaxing than just taking a long drive with no particular destination in mind, sometimes i like to take the back roads just to see where they go, a couple times i ended up at old ghost towns which were pretty cool

    Going on a 1k+ miles road trip with my husband

    and his brother. We're driving like 20 hours straight (my idea) and it's going to be great! I'm really excited!! We haven't had a decent vacation in a while, so I'm stoked. I'm glad his brother is riding with us because it will make the drive that much more fun and interesting...

    Horizons

    whether its the car I'm driving, where I'm going, what's playing on the stereo, or the person sitting next to me - many of the best times in my life have involved a car somehow. There is nothing like just setting out on the open road with someone special to somewhere special or...

    Can't sleep so I tried going out

    for a drive. All I can say is that was a huge mistake. A massive thunderstorm rolled through. I barely made it home! The roads started flooding. Hail started falling. The wind, omg the wind. I pulled over at EZ mart (local gas station) the wind was whipping around my car. My car...

    Long drives to nowhere in particular.

    Wonder where this road goes?? Let's find out! Would love to have a few weeks to do just that and see where I ended up. :)

    miserable with the poor condition of the roads. Don't want to take my lovely little car out ... But I do and take a chance on damage.

    as well as passenger. As driver I am less distracted and relaxed. As passenger I fall asleep very easy. :)

    So I was thinking about jumping in my car

    and just driving. No particular destination in mind, just forward motion. I haven't done something spontaneous in a long time but I realized, I really wish I had a co-pilot. How I Met Your Mother, references aren't funny when you're alone. I need someone to be my partner in...

    My body was meant to sit on the passenger seat

    of your car and your hand was meant to hold my hand (in this case, my thighs) while you drive. Relationship goal achieved! ✔️

    Nothing is better at clearing your head then a

    long drive. It does not matter if there is a end destination or not, but most of the times it's even better when you have someone beside you.

    Spontaneous Road Trips

    I took a road trip yesterday to see a friend,

    three hours each way. We met in a town I have never been to before, which required taking roads I have never been on before. I started heading north and west, suggested routes be darned, though every so often did consult google maps to make sure I was at least going to get there...

    Driving in the car with you,

    the windows are rolled down to let the warm breeze tousle my sun kissed kinks and curls around in the wind. The setting sun coloring the sky in fiery crimson hues, I lean back and let my feet hang out the window; watching as we pass the world by. The car takes us nowhere, but we...

    The other day I found myself with time on my

    I enjoy long drives..

    384 Miles Each Way

    When I was in college I started dating a girl I met over a summer who lived 384 miles away from me. That's 6 1/2 hours, two tanks of gas ($40 at the time), and $12.50 in tolls -- each way. I would drive up at least once every two weeks for the weekend. Each drive I would play...

    It's the second best thing about going to

    concerts when you live in a smaller town. Ten hour drive to see VNV Nation? Why yes, I think I will. Ten hour drive back home running on post-show adrenaline? Need you even ask?
