Goodness Gracious, Y'all Have Some Wild Road Trip Stories

CountersteerYour true stories of good and bad things that happen in cars.

Road tripping is, arguably, the most enjoyable way to get from Point A to Point B. No rush, no airport hassle, no depending on everyone else; just you, wheels on the ground, and adventure waiting before you. It’s pretty magical.

Man I avoided this question thread because the desire to abandon my life here in Colorado and drive away is, let’s say, difficult to overcome at the best of times. And times suck right now. I should not have come here (the double meaning was accidental, but I wrote it, so I’m still taking full credit)

I’m jealous of a lot of you. These are great stories
