    I'd Love T Leave Town

    ths afternoon and drive south down teh valley.  The problem is I feel depressed, so I don't want to show up in some town all sad. I haven't any friends anymore down south, so I guess I'd stay at a motel.  I am happiest when in transit- in motion. Guess I feel a bit...

    Perfect Summer Night

    I was in Charlotte, NC having drinks with some friends at a local dive/tavern.  I had parked my 1971 Corvette convertible right out front.  Sitting on the patio I always loved my girl friends and other girls to come up to me and ask to go for a ride.  This night I wanted to be...

    Driving Instead of Crying

    Sometimes when I am upset or stressed I just get in my car and go.  Doesn't even matter where.  I find the  monotony of driving calming.  I love to go on road trips by myself.  Hours in the car can clear my head and get me thinking straight.  It is...

    Things Are Different When You Have A Car..

    Ever since I got mine I've realized that I like to drive to think and calm myself when I'm upset.. It works. Especially at night, with the radio blasted, and the windows down. Driving around helps me think enough to come back home relaxed and ready to not freak.. it actually...

    Nowhere In Particular

    When stressed, irritated, whatever the case, and I just need out, being able to step in the car, start the engine, and just drive off. To nowhere in particular either at times, just feeling a sense of freedom almost. Playing the right music that calms and relaxes me, to me it's...

    Of Course

    Driving is the best way to figure things out or just to blow off some steam.

    I like to drive. It really relaxes me. I usually drive with music that I like listening to. I feel that driving helps me let go of my stress and enjoy life.

    This is totally me.  I love to drive and just have things going in the background for noise.  Just need to have no traffic.  Traffic definately makes me not relax.

    Road Trips Are Best

    When ever I feel somewhat sad, stressed or am just bored I go for drives. Doesn't matter where, the beach, a park or up a mountain. It tends to calm me down. High gas prices be damned, nothing is going to stop me from doing what I enjoy. I've been known to go for 9 hours road...

    Driving is so amazing to me.

    Helps me so much with my depression and I'm about to go for a drive now. It gives me time to listen to music, think and relax. Though you get the insane driver every time you're out lol.

    One Among the Others

     I love this to this day, although bad things have happened to me while doing it. I've always had cars that felt like home...a pickup (still have it,) a mustang (crashed it,) an SVT Contour (traded it for an) Eclipse, which I also crashed... I'm a singer/songwriter, though...
