There's something about a road trip, no matter where you're going or for what purpose, that feels so freeing, so full of possibilities. I've driven the route between Massachusetts and Maryland dozens of times, but the sights always intrigue me.
The Vince Lombardi rest stop (the first bathroom on the New Jersey turnpike) has saved my life on a number of occassions. I have practically kissed the ground right at this spot on several trips where I got stuck in bad traffic in the city. O Vince Lombardi rest stop, I love you so.
