EvMick, are you an 18-wheeler driver? I've always thought that would be a great job in some ways. I love the feeling of freedom, getting out on the open road, exploring new parts of the country. I'm one who always enjoys being on the move, so I guess that's part of the appeal. I don't know if you've driven through the deep South; religion so permeates the road-tripper's environment (freeway signage, radio programs, etc.) that it's really quite surreal, not to mention a bit disturbing.
