Talking Do you ever...

Do you ever find yourself bored, sitting around waiting for something or to go somewhere and you just want to hop in your car and drive? Then you think about the last time you looked at your odometer and realize that you do this too much already? I need a hobby.

LOL

Sometimes if I'm bored or can't sleep I'll go for a ride. Miles don't matter.

"Sometimes you gotta go back to actually move forward.
I don't mean going back to reminisce or chase ghosts, I mean going back to see where you came from.
Where you've been, how you got there, see where you'er going.
I know there are those who say you can't go back.
Yes you can.
Just have to look in the right place.
-Matthew Mcconaughey"

I go for random drives almost every night. It started when I was trying to get through my break in period (took 2 days) and haven't stopped

the first 6 months I owned the car no errand was too trivial or stupid to not drive out for.

It's only slightly lessened in a the soon to be three years I've had the car.

The sight of mountains in the distance is the siren's call.

Yes, all the time. Straight to the highway closest to my house, windows down and where I can do some wide-open throttle pulls under bridges. My car actually sounds like a motorcycle when I do that.

Vintage racing. No modern tech. Brings you back to the basics.

Gotta hit the twisted back roads once a week or I'd get antsy. Sometimes, I think I'm an a-car-holic...
