Have you ever taken a random road trip or have just gotten in your vehicle and just drove. This is something that is disappearing from society today, as the road trip gives way to flying. But what are you really missing when you fly over the highway. That is something we will look at in this podcast.
Road trips use to be a big part of automotive culture, but today it seems to be a thing of the past. With less vehicles in driveways, high gas prices and low airfare, the road trip seems to be disappearing from automotive culture. But why? As there is so much more to discover on the road of life and the same goes for the road outside your door.
Back in the early days of the automobile, road trips were a natural thing. This could have been due to the fact that most people had only seen what was out their back door. So, now having the ability to go out and explore the world became a thing in which everyone wanted to do. Whether it was a trip to see family in another state/province or maybe it was just an adventure to explore what was past the edge of the fields. Whatever the reason was, everyone wanted to do it.
Today that isn't the case, as more and more people are choosing to find alternate means of travel. A generation with no sense of wanderlust, has led to a decline in random traveling which has led to the closure of roadside attractions and outlet malls. A world connected may see better for attractions, but when people are less inclined to make journey, these attractions go unattracted. Now with the rise of ride hailing and autonomous vehicles, the road trip is in dire need of an overhaul.
Road Trippin' could return, as more of us have become trapped in our houses during the pandemic. But can this new found glory be enough to inspire a new generation of wanderlust travelers, or will road trips just be a thing until flying becomes more stable.. Only time will tell, but we hope that some of you out there will keep the road trippin' mentality alive.
