I'm soong going to be flying out to pick up a car, and then driving it about 1000 miles back home. I'm going to be by myself and have no firm deadline on getting back home so I'm thinking about taking a couple of detours. I've already planned two stops to visit friends along the way, and I've started thinking about bypassing some of the interstate to take back roads instead. I'm not the kind of person who would generally choose hours of isolation, preferring a car full of my buddies when taking a long trip—but the more I've been planning this trip the more I'm drawn to the idea of being in complete control of my own travel. Sounds liberating. Anyone else ever take a long haul solo drive? Thoughts?
