The Friday Five

1. What's the last place you traveled to, outside your own home state/country? I went to Utah for jatg's birthday.

2. What's the most bizarre/unusual thing that's ever happened to you while traveling? No answer.

3. If you could take off to anywhere, money and time being no object, where would you go? EVERYWHERE. I'd do a "random walk", picking a new destination at random every few days.

4. Do you prefer traveling by plane, train or car? I prefer planes, because I like destinations, not the trip itself, so speed is good. But I dislike airports, and I utterly despise the TSA (both the idea of it, the organization, and the flunkies themselves), which is making it difficult.

5. What's the next place on your list to visit? My annual trip to Boston to visit friends.

Last year's Friday Five (http://www.fridayfive.org/past/080902.php)

1. Do you have a car? If so, what kind of car is it? I have a white 1991 Jeep Cherokee. It's about to either die, or kill me.

2. Do you drive very often? Daily.

3. What's your dream car? One that drives itself.

4. Have you ever received a ticket? Yes. Not often. I can only remember 3, off the top of my head. Two for speeding, and one for following too close.

5. Have you ever been in an accident? Yes. Mashed in the bumpers on my Dad's truck while involved in a multicar line crunch. (That's when I got the following too close ticket). And I followed a truck thru a left turn without checking oncoming traffic, and got my driver side rear wheelwell mashed. Got rearended hard while driving a huge S10, which destroyed the car that hit me, but didnt hurt what I was driving at all. Plus a handful of parking lot fender benders.
