Smile Late Nite Ride

I went to the movies last nite with my Girl, my boy rob and his girl. The movie got over at like 12:30AM and then we were going to go to another kids house and chill with some cold ones. Well, turns out we couldn't do that becuase Rob's GF didn't feel like going out anymore and i really didn't know the kid. So i droped them off and didn't feel heading home yet. So on my way home there was this road that i've never been down b4 so of coarse i had to go. This is a fun road to drive at like 1AM, lots of little hills and curves. Anybody ever have the itch for a late nite drive, or is that me.........

I do it all of the time. Driving is how I release my stress. I usually don't drive fast at night were I live, becuase there are to many deer. There is nothing better than 1 o'clock in the morning with all of the windows down, no music on, and just cruising around.

I love night crusing. When I living up in the Upper Penisula of Michigan I would drive for hours on end through beautiful country side with no destination. I would drive for say an hour on a given road, see where I was and then point in a new direction.

My personal best was 8 hr round trip with a friend on a night cruise. I don't care since mileage is cheap in my car.

I love night cruising at night. I was busting down some dirt roads near my gf's house, and I found a small road i'd never seen before. Very narrow, very straight, very smooth dirt/gravel. Then it gets considerably wider, and starts going into a bunch of esses. Damn, that was fun, I was busting down that road, doing a minumum of ** mph, drifting around the esses, hehe, and topping out on the straights. OMG, that was so much fun. By the time I was done, I was 2 counties away, at 2 am. heh

I also love city driving at night. I live 2.5 hours from both NYC and Philadelphia, and sometimes I will cruise out that way and just drive through the city at 2 am. Nothing is better than time square at 2 am when there are only a few cars out, but everything is still lite up.
