A couple weeks ago I decided to cancel my flights and make this road trip a true road trip. Back when I was planning #32DaysInMyCar, I thought it would be fun to mix things up and fly from Memphis to Dallas and back. Later I realized that this would mean extra planning, like renting a car in Dallas and finding people to drop me off and pick me up from the airport in both cities. Compared to the simplicity of just taking my car and having freedom all the time, it was an easy choice to cancel the flights and start dreaming about using my $82 at Southwest some other time.
The last few trips (Birmingham to Nashville, Nashville to Jackson, Jackson to Memphis) have been less than so short! I was really quite sad about not having any more massive driving trips ahead, so this way I get a 7 hour trip and a 10 hour trip back in my life! Turns out this month has just solidified my love of alone time with audiobooks and not eliminated it.
So today I am driving to Dallas, which is just 6 1/2 hours away from Memphis. I get to take all my stuff and go where I want at my own pace! FREEDOM.
