I Love Long Drives

    I love long drives actually

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

    I would love to just get in the car

    and go. The best kind of drive is a drive that doesn't have a destination.

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Around the Block

    The best vacation I did up to date was a drive around Australia... My boss told me in 2003 that I either took my accumulated overtime or forfeit them... Easy choice to make... so I cleared my calendar for 4 months, booked a ticket to Sydney and bought my self a car... 4...

    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. :)

    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...

    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...

    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! ✔️

    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...

    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...

    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 helps me relax, and I just love looking at

    all the different places driving by. It's freeing, and adventurous, I would definitely take the long way home. ;-)

    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 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 drove from the east coast to Fairbanks,

    Ak. Actually did this twice. Once in summer and once in the winter. I really wouldn't recommend the winter drive unless you have lots of time. Not because of bad roads (a definite possibility) but because so much time is spent driving in the dark and the scenery is worth seeing...

    Road Trips

    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?

    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

    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...

    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

    Especially at night. As driver

    Spontaneous Road Trips
