I love the opportunityfor just taking long slow drive on a quiet back road. If you know me personally that thought might make you laugh little for two reasons.
1. My daily commute is long and I’m constantly stating that I need to find a way to eliminate it.
2. During my commute I have tendency to… well, “Take full advantage of the throttle.”
But there’s a huge difference between going out for drive and having to drive.
Having to drive means maintaining a schedule and being there on time.
Getting to drive means that you’re just out for journey and you’ll be there when you get there. If there’s even a there to be at.
I loathe the first one but the second choice is something special. It’s an expression of freedom. It means that my time is my own. If I want to pull over and spend the next hour photographing a flower that’s growing in the ditch there’s little or no consequences for the delay.
West Virginia has no shortage of quiet little one and two lane roads. They wind their ways through the mountains past picturesque farms and deep forests. If you know the back roads there’s grand views from ridge tops and quiet streams in the valley below. We miss so much at seventy miles per hour on the interstates.
For a long time now I’ve had the urge to leave the freeway and just see where the little side roads take me. I want to find that road that has no painted lines and discover the wonderful treasures hidden between the hills.
