Traveling by vehicle long distance is an interesting experience. I spend a lot of my time looking out the window and watching the world go by. You see a lot of interesting things off the highway. You see a lot of interesting things on the highway. But, we won't talk about our game of "Identify That Roadkill."
One thing I do enjoy is a silly game of "Who's Traveling with Us?" You try to remember vehicles you pass and then see if you catch up with them again, or meet up with them at a rest stop or meal stop. I especially enjoy the truckers. You pass the big yellow truck with the hairy-bearded truck driver and then maybe see them again several hundred miles down the road after you've stopped for lunch.
Or maybe the couple who passes you in the brown oldsmobuick with the rack of clothes in the back. You see a lot of those on the way to Vegas on I-40. You pass, they pass, you stop, you catch up to them, they pass you. It's a strange connection if only for those few miles.
Then, of course, there's the strange couple you meet at the truck-stop diner... but that's a whole other blog post...
