Do you mind driving?

Seems like a silly question...  but going to ask anyways!  I've noticed that many of my friends do not like to drive.  I'm a traveler.  I don't mind driving a good distance (an hour or so) to get to somewhere good or to hang with a great group of people for the day but being in a large homeschool group I've found that a lot of moms don't like to drive.  If its more than 15-20 minutes they won't venture.. ;(   I wanted to get an idea if this was pretty common all around or maybe just in my friend group.  LOL  How do you feel?

P.S.  This has nothing to do with gas prices. :) Just distance

Well, how I feel depends on Wyatt's mood, lol. But, generally, I love driving. I come from an area where it took an hour to get 5 miles, so now, an hour's driving can be pretty productive! If it were for a school thing, I would probably only do it every other week though, just because I am trying to stay home more and cut down on running all over the place. (Well, I guess I should say I'm trying to stay home more once I'm not working, lol) driving

Nothing to do with gas prices, I'd drive forever! LOL

I LOVE to drive. Now I have back problems and do need to stop for stretching and breaks, but other than that, love it.

My kids ride well. We always have plenty of toys in the van, water bottles, radio, good CDs and DVDs and blankets :) They haven't ever been on a real road trip, but have been pretty far for their age (2+ hour drives) and they do just fine.

I don't like doing errands (driving stopping for 5 min, driving more, stopping to pay a bill, driving stopping at store #1, driving stopping at store #2, etc) but I'd love it if we could afford a cross country road trip :) and I don't mind driving an hour or more for a good field trip or a day with loved ones...

I don't mind driving unless I'm really anxious to get where we're going or the kids are not traveling well. If it wasn't so costly, we'd def get out more!

I love to drive.  Once, I was traveling cross country, just visiting friends and seeing the sights.  As I rolled through Knoxville (or maybe I was already in NC), this trucker came on the CB and said "Are those Wyoming plates I see?  What's a little thing like you doing all the way out here? (I was maybe 19, 20)?"  I replied, "I felt like going for a drive."

 I don't really like to drive...can't say I hate it, it's just I consider it something I have to do rather than something I want to do.

 I am a driver. If we could afford it I would be taking trips all the time.
