As I’m driving across the country, I’ve been thinking a lot about the interstate system and the importance of cars in the United States.
Where else in the world can you drive 3000 miles without ever needing a passport to being stopped to show ID or questioned about your destination?
It’s really a beautiful thing, and when people talk about “American Freedom,” this is the most significant thing that comes to mind. With a running car and a tank or seven of fuel, we have the ability to go anywhere we want.
And I can’t believe I’m doing it. Well. In a day, I’ll have done it. I’ll have driven the majority of the United States.
What’s the coolest adventure you’ve had this summer? What did you learn from it?
