I love long car rides. I'm probably the only person with this opinion. Something about the passing landscape and the lull of the engine is very soothing for me. I go to school about 4 hours away from home, so whenever I visit, I get to ride in the car and talk with my parents for the whole ride. I could go an entire ride without technology, and often times I do. Most of the time I talk to whoever is in the car with me, other times I just sit and think. It is so peaceful. Do any of you feel the same way?
I think part of the reason why I love it is because I have been doing it since I was a kid. We've been driving down to North Carolina for vacation most years of my life. It is a 14 hour drive that we usually do over the span of 2 days. I figured out a long time ago how to entertain myself on such rides, and eventually learned to enjoy it. What do you do to pass the time on a long ride?
