"The greatest part of a road trip isn't arriving at your destination. It's all the wild stuff that happens along the way". I mostly agree with that but I mean the final destination is usually pretty epic lol! Joe and I are actually used to driving a lot since we try to hike most weekends and our day trip drives range from 2 hours round trip (best case scenario) to 6-8 hours roundtrip depending where the hike is. This was our longest drive in awhile though which took almost 11 hours ONE way because of the bad weather and stops along the way. We had some hiccups on the way there and on the way back but overall the journey was so much fun with a lot of beautiful and funny moments.

The desert gives me so much nostalgia for my teen years in Texas and road trips in general give me nostalgia for childhood growing up as an Army brat and moving constantly. My favorite moment from this drive aside from the scenery and good conversation was definitely driving back home at night taking a different route than the one we came from and going down pitch dark frozen roads while listening to scary stories on Youtube through our car speakers and freaking each other out lol! We experienced this on empty desert roads and roads surrounded by thick dense forest while our brights lit up the trees and I half expected to see something lurking in the darkness. I love that Joe appeases to my horror addiction lol. What's the most recent road trip you've been on?
