Default The Sunday Drive

Definitely a lost tradition amongst many people today. By yourself, or with the fam in tow, nothing really pulls the plug on stress & worry like piling into the car, cranking up some good jazz, and just driving for a few hours.

Ahhhhh.

I can see that. Certainly was a part of Sundays when I was a kid. But now, I drive too damn much already.

Overrated. Sunday drives around here mean being stuck behind the leaf peepers who act as if nobody else has anywhere to go.

Boo hoo. A few thousand people come to look at the beautiful trees for what, a week or two out the year?

Try living in an area where hundreds of millions of people* from Phoenix and Tucson come every ****ing weekend from before Memorial Day to past Labor Day



* -Aand yes, that is an exaggeration. A slight one.

Sort of. We get people all year who want to see where Meryl Streep, Kevin Bacon, Michael J. Fox, etc., etc., spend their summers. They'll drive around aimlessly for hours on the country roads.

Besides, nobody under the age of 65 purposely goes to Arizona.

I've got over-exaggerated memories of the Sunday drive thanks to my stepdad who rolled my brother and I around the county in one of these:

Don't forget all those people who go there to see where "One Crazy Summer" was filmed

A Sunday drive would be great. Unfortunately, I'm land-locked in a sprawling metropolis.
