    Just got home from the best semi random drive.

    Live in central MI, been pretty stressed lately (ok, like close to nervous breakdown stressed) so I gassed up and just went. Started about midnight, the highway totally empty, the music as loud as my speakers could handle...drove 70mi to the nearest great lake and stood on the...

    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...

    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. ;-)

    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

    Rolling early every morning catching the dawn

    makes this time wasted much more enjoyable , and as the day begins grab another gear cuz it a long ways to go . But If the dawning of a new day could last forever I'd drive it with a smile on my face .

    and a back road with the radio blaring oldies but goodies any damn day over a big city !! Roll down the windows and let the heat roll in as it waves over my body . I can feel the music in my soul forcing a cat like grin to spread across my face . Then hopefully we can find a...

    I am 6'5" so it just depends in the vehicle I

    am in. My 2010 jeep liberty has a comfortable amount of room. My mom's 2013 jeep Cherokee has amazing room. My girlfriend has a 99 Saturn and it is a challenge to sit in. I also have been crammed in the back of one of those huge vans for 1000 miles with 2 other big guys while...

    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! ✔️

    I feel like being a chauffeur is in my future.

    I love to drive for hours on end and I don't get drowsy or tired. I took a roadtrip by myself from July 10th to August 20th. Idrove from the Eastcoast to the Westcoast and back. Spent $3000 on food, camping, and other supplies. $1500 just went for gas to my truck. I drove 10,000...

    Spontaneous Road Trips

    I love taking road trips with as little pre-planning as possible.  Plans = things bound to go wrong, Spontaneity = adventure! I'll pack just what's necessary then hit the road following whichever highway catches my interest regardless of direction. The car becomes a...

    Especially at night. As driver

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

    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...

    Can You Say Road Trip?

    Well . . . . if you can I'll volunteer to be your driver on the next one, and the longer the better! I guess it is in my genes. Some of my earliest memories from childhood was my dad waking us up in the early hours of the morning so that we can visit our grandparents who lived...

    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 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...

    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.

    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...

    The other day I found myself with time on my

    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...

    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?
