                        So I will take a moment to reflect on a great drive. It starts with “the gathering”. We met at a McDonalds. A place to have a quick cup of coffee, greet old friends with a handshake or a hug. We are not always able to control the weather but on this morning the temps were in the 50s the air was cool and crisp and the sky was blue. We mill about the cars looking at their bright colors polished and gleaming. A few words from the drive leader and then like ducks leaving a pond in unison we are off on a an adventure.

                          Then there is the first part of the drive. It is the distance from the gathering to the first two lane road. We are out on the highway. The cars are warming up the pack is adjusting spacing. The drive leader is changing lanes and the pack is following in various spacing some closer some a little further away. A few turns some traffic and then finally on the first two lane road.

                            It is morning. The road opens in front of us. Sunlight steaks across the road. Wildflower decorate the the edge of the highway. Trees tower on the side of the road creating a green tunnel. It’s a new road one that we have taken before. The drive leader keeps the pace moderate as the road twists and turns over hills. The car engine sings as the cars dance over the turns in a ballet of color. The road changes and opens up to display other scenes of horses and cows that dot the landscape. Problems seem to melt away. Your sharing the moment with your plus one.

                              Then the two lane road arrived at a small town. A slow parade of sports cars move into a sea of mini vans pickup trucks. A few heads may turn. Maybe a small child point his favorite out to his mom. Then we arrive at the lunch spot. Everyone is relaxed happy. Ready to hangout and catch up with old friends or meet new ones. Large quantities of bbq is consumed and enjoyed. A few pics of the row of cars are taken. Then it’s back into the cars. Slowly back out of town. Now back on the road. It is brighter now. The sun is high in sky. After lunch the mood changes. Now there are fewer cars after some have headed back to town. We have been driving for several hours together and the group is sorted and confident in the pace and spacing. More roads are explored. Some long and straight broken up by long sweepers and tighter turns . Then we are off the two lane road and back on the highway headed home.

                                Headed back to town. We are still driving in group formation. As we get closer to town cars begin to break off on various exits. Usually a big wave and smile as we celebrate a great drive we have enjoyed together and without speaking a word acknowledge that we have shared a few hours together enjoying great roads and great food together.
