Do you like road trips?
Do you prefer them to flying?
Or do you just like to get there and be done with it?

I am on the fence. In some ways a road trip is so relaxing: you are in your own car, there is plenty of room for (almost) all that you want to take, the road side stops can be fun especially with your own picnic fare, and there is often the opportunity to make an unexpected stop (flea market anyone?) But on the other hand….. it can be long, so…….long. We tend to split the driving although my husband likes to drive more than I do, and I don’t mind being a passenger and/or navigator. Husband, not so much. Nevertheless, we put in some long days on the highway: several 8-10 hour days.
Early in our trip we were in Hudson, New York. Many, many years ago we lived close to Hudson and each time we return we are SO amazed at the changes and gentrification taking place. It has become a premier go-to place for antiques, art and new restaurants. Believe me, when we lived nearby there was n-o-t-h-i-n-g in that town.
