with both my girls in college, i have spent many a day on the road visiting them. before they decided which school they would attend, we took many road trips to explore which california university they would connect with. the trips up the california coast were a real hardship...seeing all the beautiful scenery california has to offer...what a killer! the only problem is that i have no sense of direction...and my oldest daughter is no better. how we made it up to san francisco and back is a question that will never be answered. we attempted to go from our hotel in SF to CSUSF, which should have been a 20 minute drive, but ended up taking us an hour, going full circle back to the hotel. we did get to see the entire city of san francisco, though, traveling the perimeter, but had not had any intention of seeing it on THAT day. surprise!!!! how lucky were we??
aside from that...i have made some observations while ON THE ROAD AGAIN...
please explain to me the purpose of a bra on a car hood? if you are covering up the one part you want to protect so that it looks good, but no one ever sees it because it's always covered up...what's the point?
i'm all for letting whomever wants to live in this country move here...become a citizen...but when you get on the freeways...the speed limit is 65. do NOT go 40. when you're in the fast lane...do NOT go under 80...it's just rude to those of us who actually speed.
anyone who has a gorgeous sports car and goes the speed limit...SHAME on you...that's not the point!
and finally...you know you are taking too many road trips when: (only 5...i couldn't come up with 10)
5. you know the logos of every motel in the USA and notice when they change them (for any of you who are interested...holiday inn has recently changed theirs)
4. you know which gas stations have the cleanest restrooms
3. you know the exact hiding places of the cops
2. you know which stretch of freeway has the worst smelling cattle
and the number ONE reason you know you are taking too many road trips....
1. you start wondering what colors and design your cab on your SEMI would have if you drove one
