    Best road trip I was on was in college. Me and my cuz had $250 between us and we drove to Florida and hung out for a week. It was awesome.

    I love road trips, and I still do 3 or 4 a year. Just got back from my road trip to Moab, planning my next one to New Mexico and Colorado in May. Last time I did this wonderful road trip from Oregon to NM and Colorado I met up with Snowy, Telenick and others for the Santa Fe century, a VERY fun time. I'll be off all summer, so who knows where I'll end up, the only plan so far is the San Juan Islands of Washington and Vancouver Island for as long as I can.

    Great memories of interesting people and fun encounters along the way, road trips are the BEST!

    Road trips are great. Here's a summary of a cross country road trip I took in 2003. Since it would take up multiple posts at maximum post length, I'll include it as an attachment.

    Closest thing to a real road trip was about 20 years ago. A couple of buddies and I decided to jump in a Blazer and go to Las Vegas for New Years. Drove straight there but made a couple of stops at the Petrified Forest and the Grand Canyon on the way home.

    Great trip. Even though I bet OKC was the most forgettable of that list.

    I LOVE road trips! Its one of those things that I find a lot of pleasure in! Our last road trip was just this last summer up the Northwest Coastline. It was absolutely beautiful. I just love seeing new places.

    It would be the first time I actually go somewhere withought my kids or hubby in 20 years.

    We went to New Mexico twice when I was a kid. The second time I got a 10-speed in Albquerque (either at Sears or Penney's, I forget) and rode it every place we stopped.
    Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

We didn't take enough cash, and my not being 18 yet was problematic when we checked into the 1st campsite. It was a fun ride, and we picked a camp that was right on a really nice creek with little waterfalls and swimming holes. I'm hoping to persuade my son to go on one there with me in 2008.

    I wonder if it's a spring thing. I was also checking out the available road trips available in the Niagara region. I'm thinking about doing one of the wine tour bike trips.

    If you go to Lancaster by way of the PA turnpilke, you'll have to bike the 15 or so miles of abandoned turnpike, (28 mile round trip). You'll go through 2 abandoned tunnels. Starts in Breezewood. Bring lights.

    The Breezewood exit off of the turnpike is a 3 mile drive. Right before you hit rt 30, look to your right, that is the old TP leading about 4 miles to the first tunnel. Make a right on 30 and park in the hotel lot. Keep going and you'll hit the other tunnel.

    Go for it. Where ever you go have a great time. Be sure to swim naked at midnight or something.

    I went for a road trip on my motorcycle to the beaches of Cape Cod, Right after seeing the first "Jaws" movie.
    As I sat on the beach watching the people, and a dog splashing in the water, I felt just like I was in the calm scene right before one of the attacks. I expected everyone to start screaming and running from the water.

    Several on the Harley. Usually head through Utah to my buddies parents house in Mt Pleasant. Been from there to Moab, Reno, central Oregon, Columbia River Gorge. Next year was through Colorado, Wyoming, South and North Dakota, Montana and Idaho then back to Washington. Nothing like pulling up to Mt Rushmore on the Harley. We generally stick to smaller roads and off the interstates unless we want to make a bunch of time.
    Actually just got back from one in the car. Had training in San Diego and made a road trip out of it. Down throught the Bay Area, San Diego, Yuma, Las Vegas and Reno before back home. One of these days I'll get MYSPACE going and put all the trip pictures up.
    If you've never had and buddy road trip, do it!
