Default Re: Does anyone else drive, just to be driving?

yeah i love just to get out and drive just for the hell of it. i'll probably love it even more once i get the interior done. gotta put the dash back together tomorrow and hit the jy got an ohc today and got the wrong sensor. hopefully they will let me get the right sensor. it would be my luck though. but we have a refinary in my town and they are saying gas prices are gonna go up another 20 cents atleast before summer.

I did it a lot when I first got my license (and gas was $2 a gallon). I enjoyed it so much, I got my CDL and started driving semi. Granted, some days I'd rather be at home than driving, but for the most part, nothing beats a sunny day and being out there, and I think the one word everyone would associate with this is 'freedom.' Thats what it is, thats how you feel, and thats what makes you lose the stress and feelings that are bogging you down, and why its so therapueatic. I still do it in my Ranger, though not quite as long of trips. Usually just a little jog to a McDonalds or the library, maybe to the store, completely opposite of the closest one. It feels great to do it though!

Ya, that's the beauty of a Ranger. They're just fun to drive, and you can drive them just about anywhere you want! It is hard on the gas bill, but it helps me keep my sanity nowadays.

Yeah same here gas is to high and honestly my truck doesnt ride well lol. Especially lifted and 33's just adds to the mix so I def dont lol. Now when my 600 hp mustang gets finished, you bet your ass ill be in that all the time. But having 10 grand in it, I better get to enjoy it.

Sure do! not as much now with crazy gas prices again. But especially on Sunday's, i like to clean the truck up and go drive on the Blueridge Parkway up in the mountains. I love to drive my truck (maybe thats why im putting so many miles on it)

I wish I had mountains to drive in! Heck, I've been trying to find just a plain ol' wooded area with maybe a lake or a river without also having to look at houses and buildings close by. My search continues though and I'll find me a place to enjoy JUST nature somewhere!
