We know who we are. We spurn the interstates, opting for back roads whenever possible. If Google Maps presents an alternative route labeled “30 minutes longer,” that’s the one we’ll take.

To us the adventure, the novelty, and charm of back road America is worth the frustration of taking forever to get where we’re going.

We don’t mind getting stuck behind a farm tractor or Amish buggy. We relish the opportunity to drink in the scenery.

And if the road isn’t paved, all the better.

Sit back and enjoy the ride. And feel free to share your stories and photos.
