There isnt much of a story. I'm trying to stress the .50 a mile . I like driving to places I've never been.
But if you want to get interesting....
I'm a professional eater by choice. (no not very good) and I've found driving 800miles or so just to eat 6-7lbs of rib meat is actually quite satisfying.
Even more unusal about me...I once drove from Cincinnati to New York City. Just to see it. And why not. Waht else would I do... really. Sit down watch television. Eat some Ramen Noodles and maybe go out with frinds and talk in a room somewhere.
I'd rather go out and do "weird" stuff.
