ROAD TRIPS… what memories do YOU have?
OUR FIRST ROAD TRIPS…
For us, my sister and I were fortunate enough to have family and friends that loved traveling the intercontinental North American region. And whether it be traveling, or just working on them, I would say most of our memories were based around cars, lol! But there is something about road trips!
Since we were a few years old, my moms parents have taken us to San Felipe in Baja.
All of the grand kids would ride in the camper on our grandpa’s 1980 Chevy Pick up. Then we would hit the beach and ride 3 wheeler’s all day long. Those were the good old days!
Then, when I turned 12, my sister and I took a cross county trip during summer with my dad’s parents. With the trip being almost 2 months long, we had tons of memories, lol! But I do have a most memorable! You all remember grandpa Lou right?! Well I was always dubbed navigator. For some reason I was good at directions and remembering landmarks. These were the days of Thomas guides and AAA Trip Tik maps. So as my grandpa and I were coming to a crazy big freeway interchange, it got confusing to me, but I finally said … I think you are supposed to go that way grandpa … as I pointed to the off ramp that we almost passed! But he quickly turned the vehicle towards where I pointed because he knew I would be right. And my eyes grew wide as we flew across a few lanes in our Winnebago on to the correct highway. Grandpa didn’t say a word… just kept on driving! Lol!
And of course… I remember my dads first fully custom painted 1979 Ford F100 Ranger. Standard cab short bed. Bright yellow with custom graphics. Just the right proportions. I remember when we would drive in it, and he’d let me shift! That was the coolest thing! But I really remember just how many cool places that ride took us too. Mostly Pismo beach… I loved driving down that beach!
Well, it’s amazing how many great memories we have based around vehicles, or where our vehicles have taken us. Truly a vehicle is just that, something that transports you somewhere! And even empowers you by what it looks like and what it can do. ! I always say they are extension of our personalities! I do have a Supercharged 635 hp Raptor, lol! Just saying! And we now have this amazing Super Duty that has already given us enough memories to share for a lifetime!
Vehicle’s are truly such a huge part of our daily lives. Look at how many memories our vehicles give us! Look at how they impact our lives. Look at the memories you will create with your next generation.
