Cruise Control: Can you imagine driving across country without cruise control? No thank you.
Road Work: Though it is entirely annoying to interrupt my 80 mph speed for a bit of road work, our country gets five stars for our road systems. We can pretty much get anywhere we want with comfort and ease.
18 Wheelers: Why not use the railroads more? Anyone with me, on that one? I'm going to count the 18 wheelers that I pass tomorrow.
Speeding Tickets: Maybe 2007 will be my lucky year. Can I really go 365 days without getting a speeding ticket? Last year didn't really count since I walked for half of the year.
New Brakes: So pleasant! No screaming brake pads or smells of hot metal wafting up from the Jimmy's nether regions!
Cell Phones: Fun way to catch up with far away friends during dull moments of a solitary road trip.
Country Radio: I don't know exactly why, but I love thee!
Gas Station Toilets: Most entirely disgusting experience, but a necessity nonetheless. I hovered over four today.
