The disease is incurable....

"Once a journey is designed, equipped, and put in process; a new factor enters and takes over.  A trip, a safari, and exploration, is an entity, different from all other journeys.  It has personality, temperament, individuality, uniqueness.  A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike.  We find after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us.  Tour masters, schedules, reservations, brass-bound and inevitable, dash themselves to wreckage on the personality of the trip.  Only when this is recognized can the blown-in-the-glass bum relax and go along with it.  Only then do the frustrations fall away.  In this a journey is like marriage.  The certain way to be wrong is to think that you control it."  John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: in search of America
Ooh, I want to go on a road trip so badly.  Maybe in April.
