    my family and i regularly take road trips as vacations, where we drive for 10-16 hours a day for days on end. sometimes weeks, as in the trip out to vancouver from windsor.

    road trips are awesome. though more awesome when you can nap.

    This one time my wheel came off.

    In the middle of the motorway. That was fun. Luckily there were no serious accidents.

    This is not a pleasurable experience

    flying to Australia and back was a huge bummer

    but sooo worth it

    I have very fond memories of my family driving between Spain and Sweden when I was a kid and being in a car is way less claustrophobic than a plane so I think I prefer being in a car for sure.

    I mean, I am not really claustrophobic but something about knowing I'd be in the air with no way to not be in the air for all those hours on the way to Australia almost freaked me out a little

    When I lived in Colorado, I did a solo roadtrip from Denver to Los Angeles, stayed a couple of days, drove from LA to Seattle, went to PAX, and then drove back to Denver.

    Now that's a fucking roadtrip. LA and Seattle stops aside, I never even spent the night anywhere. Just drove.

    Like a boss.

    After moving here (California) I lost my driving chops because everything is so far away I just fly.

    When I visit my parents I like to drive from their place to Atlanta (4 hours) and it feels so much tougher than it did just a few years ago when I did that 4x a year in college.

    Like, I used to just be able to hop in the car and go, no stops. Now I have to take breaks and drink sodas constantly. It's annoying.

    this is patently untrue

    on a plane you can get up and walk around

    you get meals delivered right to your seat

    you have a selection of movies and television you can watch

    you have awesome views

    you can get drunk

    it's entirely socially acceptable to take a whole bunch of drugs and pass out
