I love road trips. I do them often, usually alone. My best 2 first dates in my life (and theirs as well, I later found out) were actually road trips. Picked them up, hit the road to nowhere, and had a great time.
My most recent road trip with another person was with a gal, a second "date" although we agreed on date #1 that we weren't going to date. It ended up with us having sex, but that is a very rare outcome of a road trip. Trust me when I say that a road trip usually satiates MANY needs I have, and sex on a road trip only satiates one that I MIGHT have. So don't think that road trip means sex.
So I'm putting it out there for this summer: whether or not we've met, whether or not you blog, whether you're male or female, let's hop in my car and hit the road. Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, whatever. I have 3 GPSes so we won't get lost, I have 2 netbooks in the car so you can even liveblog it if you're geeky enough, and I'll keep a bundle of singles in the glovebox so we can buy whatever it is we see on the road stops throughout.
It's not a commitment. It doesn't have to be friendship. You don't even have to talk: put your headphones on and crank up your iPod and close your eyes. Maybe we'll pack the car like sardines, or maybe it'll just be you and me and the music on the radio.
It's an open invite, but let's do it soon. August will come before you know it, and you'll feel bad for not doing at least one crazy exciting thing this summer.
