I LOVE the open road!!! Although I dislike commuting, I adore road trips. I love to see new places, view unfamiliar territory and drive across broad expanses and over beckoning backroads throughout our beautiful country.

I bought a Prius in February. Her name is PenelopeAnne. In a mere 8 months I’ve already put over 20,000 miles on her. She’s been North to Portland, South to San Diego and East to Maine and back. Thank goodness for hybrid technology – I LOVE this car!!! Gas prices peaked in early summer and it cost me $350 to drive from California to Maine. In October it cost me even less…

How much time do you spend behind the wheel? Do you love the open road? What sort of vehicle do you drive? What are your monthly gas expenses?
