Doran Posted August 2, 2008 Share Posted August 2, 2008 I'm heading off in moments to collect my kids from my mother. We will rendezvous in Fredericksburg, VA (I'll wave at you Va folks 'kay?). I'm not that excited about the drive. This time of day (mid-afternoon), I'm a little sleepy, it's hot, and my car does not have a/c. But, I'll go, and I'll do fine. There is no anxiety, really. Just not a lot of motivation, you know? I am struck though, by how often I am in a group of [mostly] women and I hear comments about how much they dislike driving. One can't see at night, one doesn't like bridges, one hates trucks (;)), one won't travel alone. My mother is the consummate traveler, as were her parents. Is it genetic or learned, the love of being on the road? Do you have it, or are you a timid, uncomfortable driver? Do you feel that you are a good driver? Do you go the speed limit (above or below)? Do you keep the gas pedal steady or are you forever pushing and releasing, pushing and releasing (which, btw, makes this particular passenger sick to her stomach)? Just a bunch of travel questions running through my head. Talk amongst yourselves. I'll be back to check in tomorrow evening. :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
