Road Trip?

I’ve never taken a real honest to goodness road trip, though it is on my list of things to do before I die.  I have however spent a great deal of time driving great distances to get from one place to another.  (this is different from a road trip in that on a road trip you don’t necessarily have a set place and time to be).  In these travels I’ve seen some pretty interesting things (interesting to me anyways).  For instance, off of I-75 somewhere in the Ocala, FL area there is a city called Howie-in-the-Hills, FL.  Imagine having to write that out on an envelope.  It would be even worse if you lived off of Walk in-the-Water Rd (which is actually somewhere off of State Road 60).  I don’t know why these things amuse me, but they do.  They give me a little giggle on my otherwise long and painfully boring drives.  Hopefully one day I will put the nearly 20,000 miles a year I drive to good use and take a real road trip!

    The idea of travel is alluring to me, but road trips not so much.

    The one time I went on the road by myself, I nearly killed myself and a highway patrolman.

    Just think of all of the the funny names of cities and street in the USA that you could visit. Enough to keep you giggling for a long time.
