Road trip! Or as you’re more likely to say and/or hear it, “Rooooaaaaad triiiip!” As a car person, I’m comfortable saying we all long for the pleasures of a well-executed long-distance automobile journey, but one needn’t be a car person to appreciate the lure of the open road and the untold adventures that might be experienced between A and a distant B. Moving through time and space from a beginning to an end is the essence of storytelling, and who doesn’t love the feeling of living a story? It’s no wonder film and TV are rife with road trip riffs.
No doubt each of us has our own vision of the ideal road trip (not The Hitcher, I’m guessing), and that’s the topic of today’s Autopian Asks. What does your perfect road trip look like? Where are you going? How will you get there? How long is your ideal journey–and in what vehicle would you like to pile those miles? Or maybe you’re lucky enough to have already experienced some great road trip adventures–tell us about those!
