Cruise with me, baby

Got a road trip today.

2 hours one way + meeting time where I’m going.

Highways and country roads. Through cities, farms and fields.

Fall’s arrived here in Michigan. There’s a touch of frost on the grass today.

What will I see? A peek of Autumn colors; apple stands, clotheslines and combines heading to the finish line.

Yep, I’ve got a road trip today… and I’m taking a few friends with me:  Elvis. Johnny R. Cash. Willie.  The Brothers Gibb. Huey Lewis, Tom Petty and Bob Seger.  The Supremes, Al Green and the Jackson 5 … and a whole host of others,too.

Cruise with me, baby.

Who’s your favorite to cruise to?

  1. MJ,
    Frost already? Wow! Your road trip sounds fun even though you are headed to a meeting. Sure beats staying inside! Maybe you’ll have a chance to send a few pics of your glorious fall colors. October is usually when we get the best leaf watching.
    Enjoy,
    Renee

    • Just a smidge! I love to get out of the office and see the countryside and yes – taking my camera. My header today is from a similar trip last September … I am just seeing a teeny bit of color change now.
      Cheers, MJ

  2. Enjoy your drive, MJ. I look forward to seeing the pictures.

    • Thanks, Lenore. I loved the drive and enjoyed a brilliantly bright September day … but … the roads were too busy and/or narrow for me to pull off for pictures. Drat! Next time, MJ

  3. Enjoy….right music….right time of year….did you get my reservation for the ride?

  4. Ahhh, crusin’ the highways is still fresh on my mind since I just arrived home from out West a short week ago today! I listened to a buncha different stuff, mostly country music but there were sounds of Bon Jovi, George Thorogood, Foreigner, Van Halen, Sammy Hagar and Journey coming from my rig.
    We got a touch of frost too last night (NE Michigan).
    Trees are changing here.
    Have a blast…sounds like you’ve got good company!

    • Thank you for sharing your playlist, too, :). I had some Journey on there as well … ooh George Thorogood, haven’t heard him in a long, long time … thanks for the reminder. Trees are just starting to change now here in (lower) West Michigan. MJ

  5. Ooohh, lucky you! I love road trips, and yes, Michigan in the fall is a place of beauty! Actually I thought it was beautiful in all seasons, but fall is probably the best, imho. Hope you find an apple orchard to visit on your way!

    You know, I never fully appreciated the fun of driving until I lived in places – the Arctic of Alaska, and now an island with only about 25 miles of paved road from end to end – where distance driving just doesn’t happen. And when you go for a drive here, the options are pretty limited. The scenery is amazing, but the trip is just not long enough to satisfy!

    Enjoy your cruise! Sheila

    • The sweet thing is that I live less than 1/4 mile from a 100 year old orchard and Honeycrisp apples are in this week :). It was a beautiful day for a drive … and I appreciated getting out of the city and seeing some open land. I never thought about your perspective of so little paved roads- wow!!
      Thanks, Sheila, MJ

  6. No frost here, yet. But we’re getting thunderstorms and rain tonight! The temp dropped from 91 to 67 from late afternoon into evening.
    Hope you enjoyed your trip – looking forward to pics!

    • Wow that is quite a drop, Dianna!! I didn’t get pictures, unfortunately … but I have several more road trips like this one over the course of the next month and a half and I am sure I will get some photos then. Cheers! MJ
