Yesterday on the show, we were talking about road trips. The topic came up after 3 guys from London took an 800 km road trip, just to find McDonald’s pizza.
We asked you to share your best road trip stories. Here’s what some of our listeners told us:
Paula Watters wrote “I was in Nashville when the tornado sirens went off at 2am….. the police told me if I was heading back the next day to Ontario…. leave NOW. I did and drove 13hrs straight – through the worst downpours I had ever seen. Two tornadoes hit along the way, just moments after passing through Kentucky and Ohio and I75 was shut down after from flooding. Was tired but made it safe and sound”.
Brittany Hansford said she “Drove to Athens Georgia with my bestie Allison Monteith just to see Luke Bryan and Jake Owen perform together on Jason Aldean’s Night Train tour. Best road trip ever!”.
Terri Baker added “After watching Harold and Kumar go to White Castle, my brother and his friends drove from Mississauga to NYC so they could try it and then drove back. Crazy!”.
Jamie Garland wrote “We drove to the states for a cereal that my 2 year olds daughter loved but don’t sell in Canada once “.
Nicole texted to say “My grandparents surprised me with a trip to Nashville for my grade 8 graduation gift. They didnt tell me where i was going untill i seen the nashville sign. Best time of my life! We visited Graceland and we visited the grand Ole Opry. Drove there and back. It was amazing!”.
Colleen Geerlinks sent us a Facebook message that said “I road-tripped to a music festival an hour west of Buffalo. I didn’t want to spend money on a hotel, so each night around 1am I’d road-trip back to ERIE to stay with a friend”.
imnextc sent us a message on the Country 104 App “Road Trip stories -A buddy and myself after work on a Friday drove from Tillsonburg to West Virginia to pick up his car that broke down on him while he was on vacation, we drove straight there and back in Tillsonburg Sunday at 8:00 pm. No sleep!!”.
