Lake Effect essayist Mark Siegrist is thinking about the ideal summer road trip. In fact, it's one he just took.
Sometimes hitting the open road is just good for the soul.
That might sound rather strange from a guy who hates driving in the city.
All that weaving, and speeding, and tailgating just wears me down.
But the open road is different.
Drivers seem less uptight.
More willing to give a little.
Except for the guy who cut me off at the Illinois tollbooth.
