Fly Away

Whenever I'm looking at people's bios I always see that they "love to travel". So at this point I just assume everyone loves to travel. Which is a little funny considering how much people also love to complain about traveling.

My worst experience was getting stuck in a traffic jam in Minnesota. Apparently no one had considered creating a detour for the road construction and so traffic was just stopped. One by one each driver figured out that they could wait until the road work ended in a week or two or pull an illegal u-turn and hope for the best.

The best turned out to be stop and go traffic through a series of tiny towns celebrating a boat festival. In a stick shift. We were so sick by the time we finally hit another highway we had to stop at a coffee shop and buy waters just so we could sit for a while. The whole experience added 5 hours to our trip.

By the time we were an hour from home we had the windows down so we would be too cold to sleep and the music cranked, repeating the same 3 loud songs over and over, which  we sang at the top of our lungs.

I have much better experiences with flying. The worst thing that's ever happened to me on a plane is the in-flight movies being School of Rock and Duplex.
