|The day I bought my new car|
I love the open highway, I love the scenery, I love the rest stops at roadside parks and historical markers.
Apparently I've always loved road trips. You see my parents tell me that I learned to walk in my dad's big yellow Chevy van WHiLE he was driving down the highway at 80 miles an hour!
My love of road trips didn't diminish as I got older. You see when you grow up in the middle of no where and the closest movie theater and Wal-Mart are 52 miles away, then you get used to driving a long way for everything.
It was no big deal for our Jr. High basketball teams to drive 2 and 3 hours for a Tuesday night game. They weren't all that far away, but several of them were.
So here are some of best road trips I remember from my childhood.
