    I clicked on Get Reverse Directions and I'm lost. It switched to KM and I'm to old to learn the metric system.

    Would probably cost less to fly.

    Rhea, driving IN Rome would be a bigger challenge than driving TO Rome.

    I drove to Moscow, Russia (virtually). Good thing I can read Cyrillic or those last few steps would have been tricky.

    There's a reason army's wear uniforms even though it makes them easier to spot. Sometimes that's what you want. Uniforms suggest organization, power, and numbers. These, in turn, inspire fear. And, as any good operative knows, there is no more effective weapon than fear.

    Who is in Madison, WI? I saw the title and I laughed. My girlfriend and I went on vacation two weeks ago to Wisconsin and went over to Madison for a day. It was a really neat city.

    Rexie, when my dad was in the army he drove a truck all over Europe. He told me that if I could drive in Boston I could drive ANYWHERE! (And I worked and drove in Boston for three years so I guess I'm good to go!)

    I wanna go to Italy so bad.

    Driving in Italy is hilarious. I learned to drive there but I was taught to drive by a world champion race driver. Helped a lot. Look forward to sharpening my claws in Boston one day. LOL

    You absolutely have to get to Italy, Rhea! You'll love it! Start planning now for a vacation in a few years and you'll be able to save enough to get there with hubby in tow. And fair warning: start dieting NOW, too, because you WILL gain weight. The food, no matter where you eat, is amazing.
    Peace,

    We lived south of Boston for 11 years, so drove up there a lot. Sharpening your claws is putting it lightly. Always love the Callaghan tunnel coming home from the airport. I believe there are 8 toll booths, and coming out of the 8 toll booths, it immediately narrows to two lanes going into the tunnel. You literally have to play chicken to get into a lane!!

    Hahaha! When I lived in Boston I had nightmares about the overpasses on Route 93. I still remember the Citgo sign in Kenmore Square and that stupid billboard on Storrow that said, "If you lived here you'd be home now."

    Driving in Boston gave me fits until I figured out the key was to never, ever look in your rear view mirror. Drivers are not responsible for anything that happens behind them, only that which hapens in front and to the side. The people behind you are on their own so don't look back. Once I got that down pat it was easy-peasy.

    Hey if all of you send me a dollar I could get to Italy a lot faster. What do you say, gang?
