Road Trip

Hawaii-based freelancer James Dannenberg writes for the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine about his 48 state road trip.

It’s intoxicating to charge the horizon wearing a car like a comfortable suit of clothes. Some deride being sealed in a highway-bound projectile, but to me it brings the near-hypnotic hum of the tires, the splendid sense of isolation, removal from the mundane and routine, insulation from responsibility and time for reflection, not to mention an excuse to eat bad food.
