There is a World Beyond the Southern Tier
I used to travel a lot. Mostly for vacations. If you asked me to take a drive and be the driver, I'd usually say yes. Doesn't matter if it's a trip across town, or a trip across country. Did that one time, and it was awesome.
I actually prefer driving to flying. Nothing against getting on a plane (and sometimes it's the best way to go), but I'd rather sit behind the wheel and see the world around me.
When I've been overseas, I've rented a vehicle and drove to places on my vacation schedule. Even though it can be a challenge, especially in the UK where you travel in the left lane and drive from the right hand side of the car, it's was very cool.
In the past decade or so, I've taken up camping. I bought a travel trailer, and now spend all my vacations at the campground. It's fun and relaxing, but since then, taking long distant trips or vacations have not happened in many years.
This weekend though, I was hired to DJ a wedding in York, PA. Roadtrip! Although it's only a 4 hour drive, that's the farthest trip I've taken in a long time, and it was so much fun (including the wedding reception.) I was the only one in the vehicle, so I blasted the radio on the way down, and enjoyed driving through the mountains of Pennsylvania.
Even though my time was short in York, it was great to get out of town and state for a weekend. It reminded me how fun it is to take a trip, no matter how close or far it is. I had forgotten that.
If you find yourself sticking around home all the time, I recommend you expand your world. Get in your vehicle and see the country, or just travel to another city close by to see what they have to offer. There's lot's to see and enjoy in the neighboring states.
