    Road Trips.....

    When I went to college I attended school about 300 miles from home. My best friend attended school at home. I remember one night he came up to see me on a Friday night and just happened to ask how our buddy Sam (who lived 300 miles from where I was living) was doing. I looked at...

    Driving down the road with no

    where to go is the best feeling! I wish I could experience it more often! It's so much fun going who knows where with your best friends and not thinking about a care in the world. ^^ I would love to go on road trips with my friends on here too! :3

    They're so calming, but fun at the same time.

    I have this fantasy that one day I'll go around and pick up all my friends that live in different states and we'll just drive and have fun. ☺

    I live overseas now in the capital city of

    Taiwan. I get around just fine here without a car but I really really miss taking long road trips. A trip by train or high speed rail is just not the same.

    I love taking a long drive through a curvy

    mountain road during the fall when all the leaves have changed colors and are falling all around, windows down and music playing.

    A Trip To Dads

    Is There Anything Better?

    I am hoping that if I have some down time between changing jobs I'll be able to fly out of Whitehorse(driving this time of year is way too slow), rent a car and HIT THE ROAD! Where? Who cares? Maybe the Grand Canyon. Maybe a drive through the South....Memphis, Smoky Mountains...

    Me Too

    One I used to do quite often was with a gay friend. I used to get the train from Glasgow over to Edinburgh, in the south east of Scotland. Then we used to drive from Edinburgh up to Oban, in the West Highlands in his car.

    Queen of the Road

    I just love driving period.  Driving seems to reduce my stress.  Whenever I have a lot on my mind I will just drive aimlessly.  But, with today's gas prices, that's not a wise option anymore.  Road trips are even better.  I prefer to be the driver during...

    I plan on driving up north. I live in Washington state, and plan on driving through British Columbia, into the Yukon, and head west to Alaska, and come back on a shorter route. Maybe I'll do others in the future, but this one, I'm currently mapping out :D

    Nothing better than knowing you have nothing else to do but sit back, relax and simply drive. Conversations, munchies, music and beautiful sights. I haven't been on a road trip in a few years and wow am I well overdue!!
