I often wonder while driving along the crowded lanes on Interstate 81 where everyone is going and why they are on the road?
We all have our reasons, or we would not be burning $3 per gallon gasoline.
There's another Realtor® in our Cape Carteret, NC office who also has a Virginia mountain retreat. I joked to him the other day, that we should form a team and call it the Coastal-Mountain boys since we both alternate between Virginia and North Carolina.
He wants to be on a mountaintop, and I want to be in boat crusing the Intracoastal Waterway.
We have enjoyed the cooler mountain weather in Roanoke, but in the last couple of days the humidity has been as bad or worse than it is at the coast. At least at the coast, we usually have a breeze.
People travel to have a change in attitude, climate or to visit relatives. They get in the car for all sorts of mundane or strange things.
We just took a trip which managed to cover the visiting relatives base and to take care of our almost antique Mercedes 450SE which now can legally cruise the streets of Mount Airy, NC.
It was nice to be on the road in all old time car loaded with a big V8 and lots of memories. I cannot imagine being stuck in one place, but that time will come.
