What I learned today: 7/16/2013

[Author’s note: They say we learn something new every day, right? Well, this is where I will discuss the things I’ve learned in my new life and career experiences. Enjoy.]

I’m not one to say I am well-traveled. Coolest places I’ve been, in order: Dubai, New York City and Dallas.

I’ve driven in all sorts of situations in all types of cities. Detroit, Houston, Newark, N.J., the plains of Ohio and Indiana, the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina and almost everything in between.

I’ve driven in all sorts of inclement weather too. Rain, hail, sleet, blizzards so bad I can’t see 10 yards in front of my car and my fair share of ice storms.

But there is one type of driving, which finally occurred to me tonight as I returned to Portland from Fort Wayne, that I thoroughly enjoy the most, and only under certain circumstances.

  • Night
  • Highway (not freeway)
  • Very light traffic
  • Between 70-85 degrees
  • Windows down
  • Good music playing through the speakers
  • Nothing but me and the open road
  • What I learned today:
    I’ve figured out my ideal driving conditions.

    Check back tomorrow for my next installment of ‘What I learned today.’
