Friends locked, but just a little bit

I love making new friends! I'm not a hardcore commenter, but I do read every entry! In return, I have no expectation of comments, but I do like them :) Friending policy: all are welcome and added, as long as I have a clue where you know me from. I defriend if you defriend me, or if you turn out to be racist or sexist or otherwise creepy!

Writer's Block: Taking it on the road

What was the longest road trip you ever went on? How did you pass the time?

I've been on a few road trips in my time.
General chatter and having a bunch of people and a variety of music, I think that must be the key.

From Bendigo to Forbes to see a friend... ridiculous seven or eight hours in a car... on a Friday, and then back the following Monday. We did that twice.

And once from Prague to Milan, via Switzerland... that was awesome. Myself, two Americans and a German.
And from Houston to New Orleans... One of the aforementioned Americans, her husband and a Ukrainian.

Funnily enough, a trip to fucking middle of nowhere outback Forbes doesn't come close to these other trips!

Oooohhh more trips (to places not Forbes) would be good!
