I was never really the kind of guy who could tell you the exact make and model of a car. I can’t give you all the specs of the engine or transmission. But what I can tell you is about the spirit of the road. Not the daily doldrum of commuting but the freedom of exploration. The ability to get away from the daily grind and take a route that you’ve never really experienced even though you may have passed through. The spirit of the road is the windows down and the music loud as you cruise along without a care in the world. When I was a kid we still had roadside parks with picnic shelters for those travelers who are ready for a break. There used to be wide spots on the berm of Route 60 going up Gauley Mountain that were not “official” overlooks but gave stunning views of the New River Gorge. The spirit of the road is a small diner at the intersection of two interstate highways that serves the best ever monster sized hotdogs and the small service station that still has an attendant who comes out to fill your tank and check your fluids. Finally, the spirit of the road is a shortcut that leads back home.
