Friends Traveling By Car to Visit Their First Grandson – July 13, 2021

They recently flew to visit relatives in Baton Rouge, but it took 9 hours to fly there with a long layover in Atlanta. They decided to visit the first grandson by traveling 2 days by car instead of dealing with plane trips. I don’t blame them although my ability to drive anywhere is severely restricted for several months. I could be a passenger with no problems.

When I can afford to fly, most of the time it would be my first choice to fly as it’s faster than driving or riding a train if it’s a decent distance to travel. I understand why they chose to drive and it’s their choice. I am big on people choosing to travel by what method they prefer. Having spent a lot of time on the road growing up, I appreciate the things it was easy to miss if you went by plane before the advent of the Internet. I still recall things we saw by my parents asking locals about things to see and do when we came to a small town. It was pretty interesting although many of the sites are no longer around these days. I was surprised at how many things in my home county are no longer around. Things I expected to see at a future date.
