rofl.gif A know it all has never made my day. My fave road trip moment has to be in Chattanooga Tennessee.
It was evening, and I pulled into a motel all burned out from driving, woke up the next day surrounded by some of the most beautiful mountains and waterfalls I've ever seen.
Enjoyed it so much I stayed for an extra day just to wonder around in the scenery and take it all in.

That would have to be when I was about 21, quit my job, took my last paycheck and hit the road with no where to go. I ended up in Skagway Alaska and hiked part of the Chilkoot trail.
What was so best about that wasn't the astonishing scenery or the wonderful people, but that I did it.

Well, the most memorable road trip moment for me was when hubby and I were trucking across Canada and I woke up and looked out at Golden, British Columbia where the sun was shining on the most gorgeous views.

Our short road trips lately, are wonderful, but we are so bored of Ontario that 'the thrilll is gone'.

iagree.gif Golden is beautiful. What about a train trip? Not cheap but not awful either. I'd love to take the train East.

Travelling through the prairie states gets old quickly (same flat scenery), except for the beautiful open skies which, to me, were like beautiful paintings.

Oh yes rofl.gif I remember my cousin and her husband coming to BC some years ago, he didn't like it one bit. he said "There's mountains, everywhere! You can't see anything" I laughed and said "But there's nothing to see in Saskatchewan" He said "But at least you can see it!" lmao.gif

I have a lot of stories from the road as a US Army trucker in Germany. The most memorable was getting lost, happened often, in a place called Bad Homburg, or hamburger or something like that, and taking out some farmers crops off road.

Not a good idea to let 2 young 20 year oldish dudes on the open road in a foreign country.

A few others from the road in the army, when deployed I had to drive our captain around, he pissed me off, so I slapped mirrors with another truck on his side, which thrust back into his arm. This was after he told me to drive through some mud I knew we'd get stuck in, he had to get his clean uniform filthy and wade through like waist high mud, showed up with a guy with a bulldozer, but I had a tank pull me out, so he wasted his trip. I was no longer his driver after that day.

Man I have so many from military trucker days.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

oh one more I'll mention, you never screw with the guy bringing you supplies when you deploy....it is just stupid to do so. I had some higher rank guys give me a hard time when I went to supply them....

So I am told at a later date they need a pallet of rations, well no one liked omelet MRE's, so we basically had almost an entire pallet of omelet MRE's that people would put back because no one liked them.

Well I fixed up the pallet a little, dropped the shït off in watery mud...enjoy your week or two's supply of grub you jackasses.

I meant prairie Canadian provinces and U.S. states. Actually, I took a train ride from Calgary to Vancouver by train and the mountain views changed dramatically with every mile...just a fantastic experience. And when you get into Northern Ontario, more fantastic Canadian shield geology that is awesome to behold.

I would love to take a road trip to the 'gaspe'.

lmao.gif It NEVER pays to be an ass. If you treat others they way you would want want to be treated, at least you seldom have to taste revenge, or omelet MRE's. chuckle.gif
