    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...

    The Open Highway

    I am soon to be on the highway, which I missed with an intensity, brought on stronger as the long winter months lie in darkness. I cannot go a year without a roadtrip, a flight for me is only a destination, suspended in air is missing contact with the in between, the gems and...

    The Road

    I love road trips because it is fascinating. In 2004, I went on a road trip from Texas to California. Every state my family and I crossed was unique in their design. I learned about the state's history and cultural background. Then in 2007, I went on a second road trip from...

    I used to love road trips, and I used to be good at them.     Loved to drive, loved to ride, loved to start out in the morning and not know where'd I'd be at the end of the day or what I'd see in between.         Not so much any more, these days.    Too tense...

    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...
