The holidays bring a fresh wave of road trips for millions of Americans each year, and this year I too am riding that wave. Of course, none of it is to visit family, but rather a mixture of business and pleasure. Today, I'm heading to Pennsylvania (and back tomorrow) for the hubby's grad school interview. Then the day after Christmas, we're heading down south to hang with friends. Should be lots of good times.
So, what does that mean exactly?
Well, besides blogging from my phone, it means that I'm spending A LOT of time in the car. Fourteen hours today and tomorrow. Another 14 on Saturday. Add another six on Wednesday, and just for fun, let's add 22 on the way home. Did I mention that I hate riding in the car? Blech.
With that being said, what do you guys do to entertain yourself on long road trips? Do you write? What about reading? Or, my favorite, debating politics, life and religion with your companion? I brought my laptop to get some editing done, but not sure how much I'll accomplish with Three Days Grace jamming on the speakers. Apparently Dom's need to drive to music trumps my desire to write in silence.
Anyway, what do you do to keep from going crazy in the car? I'd really LOVE to know.
Which topics/features would you like to see on the blog? - In case you noticed, things have picked up around here, and I'm aiming for that to continue. I'm planning to devote much more time and energy toward maki...
