    Anywhere, Any Time.

    I love the feeling in my spirit when I'm getting ready for a road trip.  There's an earnestness to the experience that heightens my senses. I am eager for the feel of road passing beneath my feet.  I do love to walk, but there's power in travelling faster than I could myself...

    Wound Up In Zion National Park...

    Got bought off my job 02/26/2010, and I had always wanted to go on a road trip and leave the D.C. metro area since age 12. I drive a Honda Fit and it's great as far as mileage and reliability goes. But if you're trying to drive approximatly 8 hours a day between D.C. and Denver...

    Getting out of town for a

    while is always the best cure for whatever ails me. I'll even go on trips all by myself. In fact, I'm known for it.

    Just finished taking a road trip!

    I love going to a new place and finding new things to do/see. I figure now is the time to do it before I have a family and the time to go on such a trip would be more difficult to plan on a routine basis

    Peace and Tranquility

    My favorite annual road trip is to Door County, WI in the fall.  It's a short road trip, maybe 2 hours one way, but one of the most gorgeous spectacles known to man.  The Bay of Green Bay and Lake Michigan, high cliffs, brilliant colors of fall, cherry picking...

    but if you put me in a car and say drive a 100 miles or more, then I'm so there.  I love long roadtrips...just to see things I won't see otherwise.

    Have you ever felt like leaving the hustle and bustle of real life and just take a road trip cross country? I just want to leave my mind in a state of freedom without a worry in the world.

    Going on a road trip with one other person

    seems amazing, because even though you may meet new people, you two will share the same experiences and strengthen your connection while doing so.

    From Point A To Point B

     Just the thought of getting into a car, without a pre planned destination, stimulates the sense. A spontaneous jaunt to anywhere, is very intriguing. I can even go for a half an hour drive, and find something exciting in it. The only money you need is for gas, or food. The...

    When Gas Was Cheap

    Before gas became astronomical in price, I would roll a fat one and get in the car, crank up the tunes and think. I do some of my best thinking in the car. I am not a chatterer, instead I use it as a time to reflect and work out my feelings. I actually loved driving to and from...

    Do You Use Your Satellite Navigation System To Educate Yourself?

    All Aboard!

    The best ones are where you have no idea where you are going, you just jump in the car and randomly drive in one direction for 6 hours or so. See what's there at the end, and then just turn around and come right back. Remember, the fun is in the drive, not the destination.

    once every 2-3 months to a new city with buddies of mine. Usually we will find a local sports game or something interesting/unique to the city. Figure its a good way to visit a lot of cities while I'm young and its cheap
