Plus my time. 14 hours driving vs not even three hours flying.
My neighbor is driving to Michigan again so she can leave her car there and drive back with her sister and her sister's car. Then she'll have to get her car at some point. I asked her why the hell she would do that? Just fly there and drive back. Really stupid.
Driving long distances mostly makes zero sense to me. It's crushingly boring and a waste of time. Now, I can see taking a road trip where you have stops and do stuff along the way. Yes, that's fun. But just driving to get somewhere? Fuck that.
My boss and I had to go to fucking Texas several years ago. He's a big muscular guy. we were going to fly - then he says.. hey's wanna drive? I said fuck no. He pushed and pushed and then we had to fucking drive. I fucking HATED every second of that bullshit trip.
