1) If you had to move 100 miles or more to the north, east, west, or south, which would you choose, where would you end up, and what's so great about there?
Boston, 140mi to the Northeast. It's an amazing city with amazing people, and the Red Sox

2) Do you have a favorite stretch of highway or byway for driving, touring, or wandering?
Not really, no.

3) Are you happier to start a trip or return home?
At some point, both. I get homesick towards the end of a trip, but I am excited when I first arrive.

4) Plane, train, automobile, bicycle, or foot?
Automobile for close, plane for far.

5) Do you overplan or underplan your travels? (Assume that "no" is not a valid answer.)
Overplan, as in I pack about 10 more outfits than I'll need, but I always take into consideration what places I'll be going and what I need to wear there.

Yay! A Friday Five that's up on a Friday!

1) If you had to move 100 miles or more to the north, east, west, or south, which would you choose, where would you end up, and what's so great about there?
South, as it's my only option. The other three would see me end up in the ocean.

2) Do you have a favorite stretch of highway or byway for driving, touring, or wandering?
Desert Road. It's just beautiful.

3) Are you happier to start a trip or return home?
Starting a trip. I get butterflies and it's so much fun! Especially my first o/s trip.

4) Plane, train, automobile, bicycle, or foot?
Plane.

5) Do you overplan or underplan your travels? (Assume that "no" is not a valid answer.)
Overplan! Then get annoyed when I don't get to do some things!

I'd go south and that would put me in Havana. What's not to love about Cuba? (...except, maybe, Castro and the shitty economy.)

2) Do you have a favorite stretch of highway or byway for driving, touring, or wandering?

U.S. 1, from Key West to Islamorada. The view is unbeatable.

3) Are you happier to start a trip or return home?

It depends on where I'm going. If it's a vacation, I like the outbound trip better. If I'm going to visit family, I'm anxious to get home.

4) Plane, train, automobile, bicycle, or foot?

Plane. The benefits of air travel will always outweigh the negatives for me.

5) Do you overplan or underplan your travels? (Assume that "no" is not a valid answer.)

According to other people's standards, I "underplan" because I like spontaneity, which often involves buying clothes when I get there, but it works well for me.

1) If you had to move 100 miles or more to the north, east, west, or south, which would you choose, where would you end up, and what's so great about there? Definitely not north or south... probably West, but I'd go way more than 100 miles... I'd like to live on the West Coast, probably Seattle or close to it.

2) Do you have a favorite stretch of highway or byway for driving, touring, or wandering? No favourite stretch, I just go where I feel.

3) Are you happier to start a trip or return home? Start a trip. If it's a LONG trip, I'll be happy to come home, though.

4) Plane, train, automobile, bicycle, or foot? Plane and car. I ride my bike sometimes for exercise.

5) Do you overplan or underplan your travels? (Assume that "no" is not a valid answer.) Underplan. I hate rigid schedules on trips.

You should visit the otherside of the state too, not just Seattle! ;)

1) If you had to move 100 miles or more to the north, east, west, or south, which would you choose, where would you end up, and what's so great about there?
I would move back to AZ. I grew up there so it will always be my home. I also have friends and family that live there as well.

2) Do you have a favorite stretch of highway or byway for driving, touring, or wandering?
I love traveling on Route 66 when I did my trip around the US with my ex and his famiy. There was lots of desert and lots of vintage places scattered here and there.

3) Are you happier to start a trip or return home?
I'd have to say both and that depends on how the start or finish was. If it makes sense, the start is always great. Anticipation is wonderful. The return can be rough, there may be a reason to stay or to go.

4) Plane, train, automobile, bicycle, or foot?
Any of the above, not so much by plane though. I have a fear of flying now.

5) Do you overplan or underplan your travels? (Assume that "no" is not a valid answer.)
I'd have to say I underplan. Usually trips now for me are spur of the moment. Even if/when I did plan a trip I always forgot something important.

i'd go west, because it's closer to colorado. (plus the place where i'd be is manhattan, which is a damn nice town if you ask me.)

2) Do you have a favorite stretch of highway or byway for driving, touring, or wandering?
any old highway in colorado will do.

3) Are you happier to start a trip or return home?
starting it. i hate endings. even when they're happy. coming home is an ending.

4) Plane, train, automobile, bicycle, or foot?
depends on the distance. i love to fly, though.

5) Do you overplan or underplan your travels? (Assume that "no" is not a valid answer.)
sometimes i overplan. better to have too much money to do it than not enough.

1) If you had to move 100 miles or more to the north, east, west, or south, which would you choose, where would you end up, and what's so great about there?

~~~ East - the Atlantic Ocean. Actually I think 100 miles would get me in the middle of New Jersey, but I would choose to go to the seashore.

2) Do you have a favorite stretch of highway or byway for driving, touring, or wandering?

~~~ I like travelling the country roads in my county. They are peaceful, curvy and full of history.

3) Are you happier to start a trip or return home?

~~~Starting a trip because of the excitement of it all.

4) Plane, train, automobile, bicycle, or foot?

~~~ Depends on how far I go. If it is under 3 hours, by car. If I can take the train to it, I will. Otherwise, I would take the plane. I am not big on going on hiking and biking.

5) Do you overplan or underplan your travels? (Assume that "no" is not a valid answer.)

~~~ I usually overplan, but I have learned it is better to underplan. If you overplan, you can't do everything. If you underplan, then you can add things that you see along the way.

And to add to the equation - you can overplan and then decide to do only half of what you planned, so you can add the things you took away if you DO have the time to fit them in.

Auto.
