Thumbs up Drive and Listen

during these covid days its like a therapy really..
you can choose many different cities around the globe and listen some music.. its like assuming everything is ok on earth these days..

i guess its a bit faulty on mobile though..

I checked it out the day you posted it. I like it, the soundtracks are great.

Gas is so cheap though, I'd rather just drive around and listen to my 90's rock Spotify playlist though.

I'd rather listen to the engine at red line.

Or a podcast.

Glad to see I'm not alone on the random long drives to no where. My ex used to think it was "extremely weird" to just be driving around without a destination. I'm gone for like 2 hours sometimes (about the length of a JRE podcast) and I typically don't even get out of the car other than for the occasional cup of coffee, or to fuel up.

In a way it's almost therapy. That's assuming there's not a bunch of traffic or hostile people out. I'm not sure if it's just in my area, but it seems people are driving noticeably more erratic during quarantine.

You'd think during a time of distress, recent events would incentivize you to behave more humane.

People never cease to amaze me.

Our major "loop" interstate has been shut down multiple days now due to bad wrecks... It's a 70mph road, I've been cruising at a steady 80-85, and get passed like I'm in reverse. People are driving like MANIACS, typically in some clapped out shitboxes. Saw a dude almost cream the rearend of a Mustang, locked em up going a solid 110. IDK what's wrong with people, but SLOW THE EFF DOWN.

To be on topic, this is actually quite neat. Although the NYC video had me stressed, remembering times of sitting in the Uber in DC as he weaved through traffic. Definitely not what I'm used to.

Ive been going on random 50-100 mile cruises lately. Quarantine gas prices has made it a much more affordable activity

Yes.
The drive is my personal time.
In communication if I choose to be. Have my best auditory stimuli surrounding me. Comfortably sitting in a M6. Occasionally turn the sound off to have little races. Never lost. One tie with a Carrera S. I値l be out for hours. If my son asks, I say 選知 going to clean the injectors... he knows where I値l be.

I hate I-85 with a passion. It actually all goes bad from the Blacksburg exit on to Charlotte. Avoid it when I can.

Last trip up was to the airport and it sucked. Add road-work along with stupid drivers, and there are always delays due to accidents!

Yeah 85 is a nightmare, and so much construction you're bound to get some new dings and chips. Can't tell you how many pieces of wood / random objects I've run over and avoided on there. 77 is a death trap, especially on motorcycles, I avoid that at all costs. 485 is decent, but it's either filled with morons camping in the left lane or I'm getting passed by wanna be Mario Andretti's. I have just been taking backroads to work to avoid interstates all together. Takes me 10 minutes longer to get to work, but it's worth it to me.

With the decreased amount of vehicles on the road and somewhat of an increased LEO presence, I've been a bit wary of going out on long drives for the hell of it since I know I'm probably not going to be driving the speed limit on open roads...

Not saying I'll be zooming around, I just wouldn't want to be stopped for going like 65 on a 55 or something of that sort.
