So, I just finished driving across the southern USA, to return home from college. Aside from the sad sad casinos in Biloxi, I also got to check out the Alamo and the Colorado River. Anyway, it's a pretty good thing to be done with that, as 5 days of sitting on one's ass for hours and hours and hours is apparently not so good for the back.

So, what memorable road trips do you have? Any sort of dream road trips you want to take, or are planning?

I want to drive a '67 Mustang Fastback through the valleys and mountains/roads of Corsica or Italy under the sun, between lush environments and green places. That's my road trip dream and I'm planning on achieving it!

As lame as it sounds, a few friends and I are planning to do a road-trip across the UK in either January or February. I've only ever been to a few major cities here so would be awesome to see them all before I run the risk of losing my sight. We're driving down to Land's End then working our way up from there, before catching a ferry to Ireland. It will be epic.

A Road trip in the UK isnt impressive, we can get anywhere in the UK in like a day. Still a laugh then, driving up the Motorways, messing around in Motorway service stations and being spotted checked by over-zealous Motorway Police Patrols.

I do a fair bit of driving, but mostly the things I see are more idiots than interesting. Like this guy:

Really weird line on that roundabout. People like to come screaming round that corner though and if I'd been a little further to the left and going a bit faster.... No way he was going slow enough to make the correct observations.

[For those unfamiliar with roundabout etiquette, the person to your right always has right of way.]

But I digress. Driving's not much fun in the UK. Miles and miles of motorway embankment and traffic jams. You filmed a roadtrip movie here it'd be three people arguing with each other while they wait for the traffic to move on. =p Not too much decent scenery either, unless you want to go somewhere like the Lake District.

Did see some decent stuff in France.

But the richer areas of the continent are just generally better than the UK, so that's not too surprising ;)

Did I say it was impressive? No.

Did I say it's the most amazing thing in the world? No.

Did I say it's something I and my friends want to do? Yes.

Just because YOU don't find it awesome doesn't mean others won't. Stop being a dick for the sake of being a dick.

You're being hostile for no reason. I was just stating an opinion, I didnt say it to be a "dick". If you read my post further, you'd see I still enjoy it from "Its still a laugh though" I was just saying its not got the granduer of our Brothers and sisters across the "pond"

Dude, you gotta hit the A66 for a road trip in the UK, across Yorkshire.

Having a road trip across America, regardless of how epic it would actually be, is highly unlikely given my current financial and health situations. I'm more than happy to just go on the road with my friends, stopping a night in each major city and seeing all the towns inbetween. I'd love to go to America and/or Europe but, really, I'm content with the UK.

Two friends and I took U.S. Route 101 from San Diego to San Francisco. That is probably about as much "road-tripping" as I've done, the 101 goes through some beautiful country though.
