The open road speaks an odd language. Depending on where the road is situated, it can tell you all kinds of things if you’re willing to listen. Old cracked pavement can tell of hot, dreary days. Potholes complain of rain, snow and salt. Smooth even stretches into the horizon are drama free with happy views. Coarse rocky roads have a complex between longing for the present despite being stuck in the past. It bites at the rubber on your wheels to show its disdain for the current predicament. The 2,460 miles of road traveled last week spoke these languages and many more. There was smooth silence, tremendous noise, noisy speed bumps, the sloshing of mud and growling of gravel. At the end, the road ended up telling us a little more about ourselves. How we behave when the tires threaten to pop, the blacktop stretches into eternity and the mountains test gravity against thousands of pounds of metal and flesh.
