Our aimless driving has begun. In view of our recent issue of our car not passing the NYS Annual Inspection largely due to the very low mileage because it is rarely driven and therefore, underused, we deemed it fit that we’re better off driving even without a purpose rather than paying for the service (whatever it is that they did ) at the Dealership to pass the inspection.
I have to admit that since the journey began this month, my husband and I have been enjoying our road trips. That means, our nifty navigation system (GPS) is being utilized like it has never been in its entire lifetime. Although road signs are highly visible in New York, there are areas where they are obliterated by overgrown trees. Good thing we haven’t missed any of them yet. A traffic violation is the last thing that we want to incur.
Even with the GPS doing its job, when we are in unfamiliar grounds, street signs are key in proper navigation. We are already wasting gas as it is with this aimless driving, and wasting our time and going around in circles is not an option. I can imagine ourselves getting in trouble with the law if we accidentally drive into some private enclave clearly marked with no trespassing signs only because we missed the signs in the first place.
In a few days, we will take another trek into yet another undetermined area. We are only going local for now. Remember, we loathe driving in the first place. We prefer to fly rather than drive. Clearly, our car is only meant to be used when it is extremely needed and we need to drive. Thus, driving to go on vacation has never been a norm for us. When we travel, we fly even if it only takes an hour or a couple of hours of flying. It is during these times when driving would have been a good option. But being the two lazy drivers that we are, this has never happened. Maybe finally, this will be a good start.
