  1. It's the quintessential American vacation--the road trip. We've all done at least one in our lives (and if you haven't, make time to hop in your car and just drive). I'll never forget taking Route 1 down to DC all the way from New York a little over a decade ago. It's a lot longer trip than 95, but it's an adventure. Met a guy in Philadelphia late at night at the gas station who's alma mater was UT--wearing a Longhorn shirt and everything. Didn't expect that up there. We we're on the north side of Baltimore at about 3 in the morning, both sides of the street lined with row house after row house, and despite being so early in the morning, everyone was out walking the streets, hanging out as if it was 3 in the afternoon. This was not the street to be on in an unfamiliar city at 3am. We were certain we were about to be mugged, robbed, or shot. We survived without incident. We continued on our way to DC, and I've gotta tell you, the best time to visit the National Mall is at 4am. Not a soul was there. Easy on-street parking a block from the White House. It was just me and my friends walking along the reflecting pool amongst the lightning bugs with only their dim light to guide us toward the Lincoln Memorial. The peaceful solitude and singular focus of the giant figure of our 16th president keeping watch over the three of us as we read aloud his famous words lining the walls of the monument was an inspiring moment like no other. What drive have you made that was an epic journey?
