    I'm not talking about the stop light to stop light, people up your butt city driving. I'm asking about out in the country 2 lane, no traffic, enjoy the view type driving. I was off work today so I decided to make a feed run. It's an hour drive each way and all back roads until the last maybe 2 miles to the feed mill. I saw a couple deer, 3 wild turkeys out in a field and lots of nice views. A nice relaxing drive.

    Nope. Absolutely hate driving, but have the pleasure of driving 24 miles each way to work 5 days a week through some country roads. My husband on the other hand LOVES to drive, in fact he does it for a living. I like being a passenger so I can enjoy looking at the animals, trees, and overall scenery.

    Quote:I feel almost the same way. I HATE driving, hate it, hate it. But I don't like sitting as a passenger either. I wrecked about a year and a half ago, and since then, even sitting in a car stresses me out. Oh, by the way, my husband is a truck driver. LOL Opposites attract and all that... [​IMG]

    I love driving. My vacations are usually driving several thousand miles over a weeks time on secondary roads.

    Yes, I like just driving around. We live amongst the river bluffs along the Mississippi River in Southwest Wisconsin. The roads are up and down, winding and threading their way from the ridges to valleys. Although I grew up here there are many routes in our county that I'm not familiar with and with the winding roads it's not always clear to me where any specific road is going to take me. So my wife I and go out exploring a lot. "Where does that road go?", "I don't know, let's find out..."

    I LOVE driving. And not the the people on your hieny driving but the open road, going out of town to my daughters softball tournaments, good music, good laughs, just the two of us raod trips [​IMG]

    She signed her National Letter of Intent to play softball at Adams State College in Alamosa, CO just today. I'm going to miss this time with her [​IMG] It's been her and I every summer for the past 9 years. I'm hoping my 9 year old daughter keeps her softball bones so she and I can travel and go on our roadtrips, just the two of us......

    I generally like driving, unless of course I know that Steve is on his Sunday drive and going 12 mph in a 40 mph zone and I'm behind him trying to get to work on time.

    I have always enjoyed driving. The last 15 years I worked involved several hours of driving a week at employer expense, usually on 2 lane country roads. It was like a mini-vacation every week.
