2012-366 Day 326 – Traveling

I have to say, growing up in a family that took yearly summer driving trips (usually to Colorado to see my grandparents who moved out there when I was 10) really has made me into a fairly easy going traveler now that I’ve grown up(?). Several hour trips (like San Diego and Disneyland on a bad traffic day – although I still hate sitting in traffic) are a snap for me. Five to eight hour trips (like Modesto and Sacramento) seem like mid-range, pretty easy trips. And return trips out to Colorado (although not quite beyond yet) are totally ordinary (although a bit less frequent than yearly now) and slightly dull, as I’ve mastered the art of shutting my brain off except for essential driving functions for long stretches.

The holidays are, of course, a peak travel time, so one must be aware to have the best experience. Leaving at off peak hours and being willing to power through with few stops can make or break a trip. The most important thing, however, is staying safe, and that means driving safe as well as keeping yourself in safe situations. I hope everyone has safe travels this holiday season, and maybe I’ll see you around the town or out on the road.

    Isn’t it kind of depressing that you drove more miles in 14 hours than you have run all year?
