I had fun planning a full day of road tripping – offering to pick up friends and coming up with reasons to travel along some of my favorite road-test-worthy back roads that offered swaying curves and rowdy bumps. Weeeeeeee
Don’t be under any delusion that Green Divas get paid much cash, but when this little cutie rolled up in front of Green Divas HQ (aka my house), there was some compensation in the thrill of being a Green Diva. THIS is a serious test drive.
On the heels of the big annual North American International Auto Show in Detroit, It’s fun to think about the possibility of getting a new car. The Detroit auto show and my participation in it were timely this year, because I am in fact looking for a new car as mine was trashed by a large oak tree during Sandy.
I fell in love at least a dozen times in Detroit earlier this week . . . no silly, not with all the handsome foreign men in suits wandering around Detroit’s North American International Auto Show! I love cars. It is a genetic thing. I blame my father (and so would my mother).
This Green Divas is a consummate road warrior. I usually travel alone, but this time, I got to travel with my daughter-in-law from New Jersey to Austin, TX. Some would see the trip as being stuck in a car for a few days. I see it as having a chance to have my daughter-in-law all to myself for a few days. And if I am traveling on my own, I get excited about catching up on some books-on-tape or working on some language skills, etc. Here are some of the ways I take care of myself while on the road so that I am not burned out when I arrive.
