I Love Long Drives

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,088 People

    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

    The concept of "roads" sure is interesting.

    .. Just stay on this paved pathway, follow it as it turns, or stays straight, follow it as it goes under tunnel and over hill... Stick with it and eventually- you will find one of two things. Your destination, or your next adventure.

    The other day I found myself with time on my

    hands, the sun  shining, and my daughter riding shotgun. We looked at each other and hit for the back roads, put the windows down and of course turned Mr. Loaf on loud. These were unfamiliar roads to us north of the city so we took turns deciding whether to turn north or...

    While driving I love to look at the scenery:

    Sunrises, sunsets, the beautiful nature, pretty nice small towns and villages, or just to look to other cars. While car driving I am listening to good music and then I am happy and content. :-)

    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...

    And singing... I'm always worried I'll stop

    somewhere and have no voice from constantly singing at the top of my lungs. Shh, it's a secret though.

    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...

    Long drives with great music are the best.

    Just spacing out and staring out the window is so nice. It would probably be even better if you were driving with someone special and could hold their hand. Also long drives through a city at night is magical

    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...

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

    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! ✔️

    Driving takes my mind off of things,

    especially when the music's blaring and i'm just cruising on an open road.

    and head in a direction I haven't been before. Just drive and stop when I want to.

    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...

    when I'm in traffic. I can sit and talk to whoever in the car. If I'm alone I blast music and dance.

    That would surely be a long drive, but it would be worth it to see so many places :)

    Some days I just climb into the car

    and see where it takes me. I find driving especially on low travel roads to be very therapeutic and a nice way to unwind. I don't do it as much right now because my car gets lousy gas mileage but when I can get a good one again I look forward to driving more.

    I suffer from anxiety

    and one thing I found that helps with it is long drives. I am lucky to have a sporty car and mountains near me which is perfect for losing yourself in a drive. Helps to clear my head. And it is fun to go fast sometimes.

    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...

    I love those long drives it always makes me

    calm. Just put on the music, step on the accelerator and enjoy as the trees, hills, fields and cities passing by. For me it's always the journey that matter, never the destination.

    I do, but only with someone

    that can carry a conversation, likes the music I like, and ideally he's tall, handsome and muscular. We can take turns driving. And when we stop to switch and stretch our legs, we may add to the fun of our trip ;)

    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...

    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...
