When we go to a special location for a round-trip excursion or for a shamrock, the question always arises about the way we should choose to get there. Most of the time we use interstates or major highways. Oh, God, is this ever boring! But during our last trip to the Monterey Peninsula, a solution occurred to me and that concept created a new department we're calling Roadconnections.
I'm fooling around with Christa in our hotel room in Monterey. "Should we take I-5 for the tenth time or Hwy 1 for the fifth?" I ask. "Or should we add another day and stay in Ojai? This road connection on the map looks pretty interesting," I say, as if I need to convince her.
"Don't talk to me like a politician. You know I'm always ready for an exciting ride someplace new," she replies.
