It’s fitting that 2013 started with a road trip to sell my old car and then ended with a road trip in a brand new one. To close out 2013 in style, I hopped in my newly acquired Ford Fusion hybrid and drove from Los Angeles, CA to Aspen, CO and back. (By the way, I spent around $150 on gas for over 2,000 miles in the hybrid.)
I’m a huge fan of road trips. In 2013 alone I drove around 8,000 miles, mostly completely alone. Road trips are an opportunity for introspection and thinking. And also for listening to new music! You can stop where you want or not at all if that’s your preference. There are few things more appealing to me in this world than a trunk full of clothes and the open road ahead. Here are 10 pictures from my most recent road trip!
