    I think you need to be my neighbor! I love road trips and I love driving, I just need a partner in which I normally don't. My road trips consists of a lot of drinking and partying or just plain o'l fun in the sun. :)

    Spontaneous road trips are the best. The fact that you ran into a lightning storm is a bonus!!! :D To me, a perfect road trip consists of nice mountain scenery, some open flat road, and a an exciting storm that you didn't expect. Sounds like you had it all! Thanks for sharing.
