Some Of My Favorites

Some of my favorite trips are the ones where I have pointed the car in no particular direction and just headed down what ever back road looked interesting. I have found myself hours away from home and seen more than if Itook the highway. American back roads are great fun.

Some of the most fun my wife and I had when dating was driving from Chattanooga in our Karmin Ghia convertible to no where. Some times the roads just ended. Some times you ended up in a town time forgot.<br />

Once one late evening just after dark hours northeast of town, we stopped to try to read the map with the car's little 6 volt battery interior light when we heard horse start to walk by us. No said anything as they passed. A few minutes later we drove on into the little town and the same horseriders were at the A&W drive-in ordering food from atop their horses.

Funny you mention Austin. We rarely took the main roads from Houston to Austin. So many great places to see, esp in your neck of the woods. Happy travels.

Yes, I love back roads! You'll be surprised at some of the places you might discover so close to home, that you thought were never there. I went up to Austin this past weekend and took some back roads out in the country. Amazing scenery!
