Subtitled: Have convertible, will travel.
Trips all over the place. Trips to foreign lands, trips to places closer at hand. Just going out for a party. We've done a lot of them. We've photographed a good few as well. So here are some of those travels.

Bleesby, Lincolnshire. August 2006
Road Trip 2004: OH, KY and NC to see museums
Joy Riding : test driving new cars
Robert and Dawns Party At the Kitano, NYC
The Motorcycle Races in Monterey, CA
Montclair, NJ 2000
Road Trip 2001: Scotland
Road Trip 2002: Virginia
There are those that have never gone anywhere. There are those to whom a credit card is as important as air and who see the world as just one big playground. My wife and I fit somewhere in the middle.
Over the years we have traveled extensively across the US and the UK. The vast bulk of the travel has been unplanned. Road trips can be a few hours on local roads, or several days... out there. The test of a successful road trip: you need to stop at the local tip to clean the car out, before going to the car wash. The back seat is not for passengers, though they sometimes are there, its for catching empty coffee cups, burger wrappers and National Park guides. And tee-shirts that say "Been There, Done That"
An added dimension to a good road trip can be speed; Just how fast can we get from New York to Nevada, via backroads?
These trips have also left open the opportunity to get into my next favourite activity, photography. Be it a small deserted gas station on the side of old Route 66, or an abbey in the Yorkshire moors, there are always many things to point a lens at. Have a look at this little selection >>>>.
Some additional observations.
