    I go on road trips in the summertime with my family. I consider it to be a family tradition. I just like to get everyone together and tour interesting venues around the country.

    Give me an excuse and I will go. I go on probably 12 or more a year. I just recently had a friend say they needed to visit a kid at college and they were going to fly since it was a 10 hour drive. I suggested we make it a road trip there and back. Most people love em if they have friends or family to go with them.

    I love road trips and i try my best to make sure i go on one monthly. If it were up to me i would probably take a trip every weekend or even every single day.

    I usually go once every year in an international road trip. Last year I was with a few friends in France, Italy and Spain, and we had a great time and visited lots of beautiful and interesting towns and places. I visited most of Europe but I want to see Africa and maybe Canada, USA and some countries in South America

    I'm going on one at the end of the month. I usually go on one once a month or less. I prefer to go in the summertime but I don't really have a choice when it is work related.

    I try to take a good and long road trip once every month, but i also have a sunday tradition where i travel to different parts of my city that i have never been to on a regular basis. I love the thrill and feel of exploring. It keeps me on my toes and i feel like i get to see the world on a regular basis.

    Lovemwaf I agree, it is so interesting to see new places that you've never been before. I need to hurry up and get my passport so I can travel around the world.

    I try to go every summer with my family if we have the time. It can be really fun to go around and sight see.

    Not too often. Only when we all are stressed out and we really want a time away from the house.

    It's been a long time since I've been on a road trip. Work has been busy and I have a lot of family matters to take care of. I have to work and clean the house every day when I'm free and I have to care for my sick parents. I'm lucky that I still got to sleep.

    I try to go on road trips at least once per year. Sometimes it's with the entire family and other times just with my husband. It's always full of fun and excitement. We take lots of photographs together and take pictures and video of whatever interests us. Whenever the children are with us , my daughter especially, likes to look for weird things to take pictures alongside and that always makes the trip funnier and more exciting.

    Really depends on how busy we both are. No kids or anything but we try to plan ahead in advance half a year or so for big road trips. Several really, I don't count stuff like going on vacation a few hours away as a road trip.

    Its been a while for me because I got ill, I use to go on a road trip all the time. From 1998 to 2004 I went to Disney World 14 times. (Michigan to Florida) But then I got ill and my income was cut over half when I went on disability. Right now I am trying to make it in the webmaster world because I can not work a real job. I know 90%+ people who try fail, but its my only hope if I am ever going to make road trips again.

    I tend to go on a road trip a couple times a year. Maybe about once or twice every two months. It's just a way to get of the house, you know? It's sort of like a small vacation. I find it to be quite enjoyable to be exploring the country when I have the time. I usually try to aim for a good weather. Once it starts raining, it sort of blocks your vision a bit.

    When I have an occasion and some spare then I go. I usually go with my friends or family. I might even go this week. Depends on the weather.

    I wish I could do road trips every year. I go on road trips maybe once every two years. I don't have much money to really travel like I want to but I LOVE road trips. I find them adventurous. My friends, boyfriend and I would stop at different places and take silly pictures. It's so much fun I wish I could do it more often.

    I generally try to take a day or two every three months and go in a random direction until I get tired. If I see something that catches my interest I'll stop and check it out but other than that it is the 'ride' that matters!
